The stickman was being a jerk...and a fool. He was being a jerk because often even experienced rhythmic rollers actually win money for the casino as many players bet the numbers that aren't hitting or bet the don't side and get killed. Often "action" players press their bets after several wins only to lose everything back with one rotten seven. The rhythmic roller has made money on his roll and the casino has made money from the "action" players who couldn't keep their heads and settle for somewhat smaller wins. The casino is in no jeopardy from a lone rhythmic roller.
The stickman was precipitous as well. Even though you nailed a few eights in a row, you could have done that just by flinging the dice. It could have been luck. To immediately jump on you for the way you rolled showed that this particular stickman was not just a jerk but a fool. Obviously, he has lost you as a customer and every one reading your letter on these pages (and that will be tens of thousands of craps players) will probably want to avoid Bill's Casino in Southern Tahoe.
You did nothing illegal by picking the dice up your way and rolling your way. However, card counters in blackjack do nothing illegal as well and the courts in Nevada have upheld the right of casinos to refuse their action and even boot them out the door.
I have played craps in over a hundred casinos. I fix the dice a certain way and roll a certain way each and every time. A few casinos have given me a hard time but only one was in Vegas, and not one in Atlantic City has given me the least look. In fact, in most casinos I've played in just about half the players have set ways of rolling. It's a part of the charm of the game. I don't go to any casino that hassles me about how I roll or about anything else...nor do my friends. And I certainly don't recommend inhospitable casinos to the people who write to me to ask me where they should play.
I'm sure you will not be giving BILL'S CASINO a recommendation to anyone you know.
All the best in and out of the casinos.
