Craps The Golden Arm

Dear Mark,
I am writing a screenplay with a character who has the ability to
affect the outcome of dice on a crap game with his throws. I need a
term for such a person who has this skill. Billy F.

I'm guessing here, Billy, but I think you are inquiring about a player
so gifted at throwing dice that he can alter the conventional odds of
the game, not the cutesy-pie player who merely slides the dice in
prohibited fashion across the table.

In gamblese, Billy, the player you're envisioning is called 'an arm'.
As to whether or not such a golden arm actually exists, who can chuck
the die with any accuracy is dicey at best. I fly on the side of gaming
folklore, and hold that it ain't so. Others in the betting house biz
disagree. One of my favorite gaming authors, Frank Scoblete, penned a
very enjoyable read called, Golden Touch, Dice Control Revolution. We
are both on the same page in that craps is a losing proposition and the
game is structured to mathematically beat all betting systems. But in
his book, Frank feels that you can control the outcome of a roll and
that the skilled dice controller can change the nature of the game to
favor the player. I'm not saying phooey aloud here, it's just that
after spending 18 years on the inside, an umpteen years bellying up to
a table that I have to see it to believe it, and I haven't seen it yet.

As for a player sliding the dice across the table to get a specific
result, yes, that's a possibility. I've witnessed that, along with
those who have tried it being escorted off the game. Crap dealers, a
box person, the pit boss or the eye in the sky tend to go berserko if
some dice jockey tries to illegally manipulate the cubes so that a
random outcome doesn't occur.

It's your play, of course, and your hotshot is certainly going to be
sharp enough to know all that, so you might invent a brand new term for
his magic anatomy: Dicerony, Warlock 7, The Wrist of Doom… Let us know when and where we can see it.
