Funny dice

9 October 2008

Frank:

I have purchased some used dice from eBay and notice something funny about one of them. I am practicing the hardways set so I place the 5s on top and the 3s toward me (I was also born in '53, which makes it easy!). I noticed that one of them has the spots on the 3 side that start in the upper right instead of the upper left. Wouldn't this make a mess of the 3V set? FYI, the die is marked Trump Plaza.

Thanks,
Russ

Dear Russ:

There are two types of dice used by the casinos. It seems to me you got one of each from eBay. The most common dice set with the 3-V on top will have the 3s in a "V" shape pointing to you with the 5-spot on the left and the 1-spot on the right facing you. The other set will not have that. It will have the 2-spot on the left and the 6-spot on the right. Turn the dice into a pyramid and that 5:1 comes up.

Different casinos use different dice, usually the first kind Type A; but some casinos use the second kind Type B and some minority of casinos will use both types. They just don't mix and match as you did.

Let me recommend that you get new casino dice. Go here for information: http://www.goldentouchcraps.com/dice.shtml
