If a player is going to be the shooter, the stickman will pass five over to them. The player chooses two and the stickman takes back the others. To roll the dice:
Use an overhand grip
Though an underhand grip—palm up—may seem more natural at first, gripping the dice as shown is the best way to get a good, controlled roll.
Don’t pass the dice from hand to hand
Casinos require the shooter to hold the dice in just one hand. If a player wants to switch hands, put the dice down on the table before switching hands.
Do not conceal or take the dice beyond the edge of the table
This will only slow the game down and the boxman or dealers will have to request the dice for inspection and issue new dice.
Do not fiddle around with the dice before tossing them
Setting the dice quickly is OK, but the shooter is expected to throw the dice in a timely manner. If the shooter has a special or lucky wind up, do it quickly as a courtesy to other players who may have serious money on the table.
There is no need to over shake the dice
Everybody likes to shake 'em up but do so quickly. Besides, the dice are pre-shook at the factory!
Do not throw the dice hard, Toss them
Hot shot players who roll at high speed and slam the dice and often bounce them off the table will not get good service from the dealers. These players slow the game down and often upset other players who may have serious money on the table.
Do not aim the dice into the dealers working stacks or into the mirror on the player side of the table
Again, this is something that will only slow the game down and frustrate the dealers and the other players. Dice are to be rolled down the center of the table and must bounce off of the end wall.
