Dear Mark, Do all
casinos use the same dice size on their crap games?
Most dice on crap games
today are the size of a three-quarter inch cube, but
the size can vary up to a sixteenth of an inch because
different companies make dice. Up until the early
sixties, dice were somewhat smaller, measuring about
five-eighths of an inch. The increase in size was
for a few different reasons, the foremost being complicate
for the cheaters. It is much harder to "palm"
or "switch" the bigger dice. Another reason
is that as crap tables grew larger to accommodate
became advantageous to have larger spots making
it easier for the dealers and players to read the
numbers. I once positioned a five-eighths inch die
next to a three-quarter inch cube at the end of
a crap table, and what a difference an eighth of
an inch makes! even with my botched lasik surgery.
