 Soft Touch Say's


Hello everyone,


With summertime upon us, I have been traveling to Las Vegas quite a bit and this month's issue will be short and sweet because I am busy experiencing all of what the Vegas casinos have to offer me during this time.


Additionally, I'm preparing for our upcoming play shop on the 21st of June.  We still have just a couple openings left and if you find yourself interested in learning some really new, "out of the box" concepts on how to improve your craps game from an energetic level, then this is a great time to come and meet with us.


Dice Coach, The Professor and I are not about stopping and changing the approaches and strategies you are implementing in your game.  We are about understanding how to make your game better and assisting you with our collective wisdom to get winning concepts to sink deeper into your game.


How do we do this?  By taking the chaos created by the craps game and sharing ways to seeing order in it.  And, by literally engaging in having you play your game with "eyes wide open."


Whether it means changing your mechanics, pushing you toward taking a greater measured risk, or kicking out your self sabotaging beliefs about winning, we will definitely move you toward achieving a fascination with our game, and we'll  do it from a place of child like amusement instead of a cookie cutter, lecture like approach.


You know, sometimes I encounter students who are so consumed and busy with the details of their toss mechanics and strategies that they feel that anything outside of what they've already studied will interfere with their winning.  Yet, that type of intensity will keep a player playing his or her game on an ego level.  Remember, ego likes to play it safe, doesn't like change and loves the status quo. Where is the game elevating, self discovery in that?


So, look at your results and whether they are achieving what you truly desire.


We'll show you where luck, the good, bad and otherwise, plays a role in your game. Does luck even play a role in your game? Because a lot of players believe that luck is something that just happens in your game randomly and that it cannot be created or harnessed. Yet, hanging on the that belief allows the player a very convenient excuse or crutch for not putting in the time, money and energy for understanding the true energetic nature of the craps game.


As one of my mentors has always stated:  "You'll never get diamonds in your life by planting rocks! You'll never grow gardens of success by planting weeds." Come sow some seeds of success with us and plant a money garden in the casinos with us. I run into so many players I would love to help who are just gems waiting to be polished.


Join us this June.  If you're not available, there will be a couple of more opportunities before the year is over.


In the mean time, enjoy the article by my favorite craps playing partner, The Professor,  have fun, and if you hold yourself to the highest of playing standards, you will amaze yourself with all the creative ways possible to achieve your craps playing goals.


See you soon,

Soft Touch

PS If you have any suggestions for the new Dice Setter website or newsletter please send them to me at and I'll have a look and see how we can incorporate them into our future plans.

Pinball… it’s a life style


When I was a young boy, I loved playing pinball games. For a mere five cents I would get five balls to try to score enough points to light the replay gizmo. There was a hole at the top of my favorite table, right in the middle. When I produced a qualifying score and managed to manipulate the ball into the replay hole, a loud pop sounded rewarding a credit for another game. There was a ball return at the bottom of the hole. After racking up more points and the credit, it would pop the ball back out into play. The longer I could keep the ball in play, the more points and “free games” I could win. It was all skill and I paid for my lessons. I set aside my allowance money to finance my pinball addiction. Yeah, at the age of twelve, I was addicted to pinball. I could only play on weekends. The only thought that got me through Sunday mass was day dreaming of playing pinball. Is that a sin? Just as soon as I could get out of my Sunday best, I’d peddle my bike down to Park Lanes, the bowling ally just the other side of Mineral Palace Park on Main Street.


I played each nickel as if it were my last. I learned how to give that machine just the right shove, at the right time, to send the ball back up with just a little more ump, up to the high point bumpers without tilting. I learned this from an older boy. He had slicked back hair. He wore a white T-shirt with a pack of smokes rolled up in the sleeve. In the beginning, I did not know about manipulating the game. The first time I saw how bumping the machine changed the action on the ball, I was so impressed. Of course, I had to learn about tilting the machine, which ended my session without the chance of a reward. Eventually I learned every nuance of that pinball game. On a good day, I could play for an hour or so, investing maybe three nickels.


Dice games and pinball games are a lot alike. Both games are designed to challenge the player. Both games tempt the player to keep playing for the win. Both games are rigged for the player to lose. A pinball game has a sloping table. A dice game has odds that favor the casino. In pinball, the ball tends to pass down the middle of the table avoiding the action. In dice, the rolls tend to be short, adhering to probability. Not knowing all the nuances will cost you money. You run the risk of “tilting” either game by pushing too hard. You have a limited investment for either game. You pay for your lessons. If you hold on to your “nickels” long enough you may catch a hand. The best results are had when you have a method of play that keeps you in the game. Simply, you want to get the most “points” from every bet and sustain your playing time. By sustaining your playing time, you increase the propensity of running into a winning streak.


When it comes to casino craps, you are playing a game with a sloping table. The ball keeps “trying” to roll down the middle where you are helpless. When it does, you reload another ball (place another bet) and hope it is the one that stays in play long enough to put you ahead. You play each bet as if it were the only bet left, keeping the other bets safely in reserve. (money management)


How do you earn the “free game”? How do you play craps and score enough points for the “replay”? How do you make the most of each bet and keep your precious bankroll in reserve?


You start off with a big energy, an intrinsic belief, that the game can be beat. You create a belief that aligns with a winner’s attitude. There is a way to win and you will dedicate yourself to finding it. You never settle for less and you give yourself every possible edge. You learn to expand your energy through a paradigm of abundance. You know that fear, scarcity and lack is the kiss of death holding you back from all that you deserve.


1.      You are playing a game when you play craps. You should be playing because you enjoy playing the game. You enjoy the challenge of over coming the odds. You enjoy the thrill of winning and you enjoy the rush of excitement. You are able to accept the fact that not every session will be a winner. If it were, there would be no charge from the experience of winning.

2.      You acknowledge your limitations. If you are not 100% serious about acquiring the skills necessary of an expert player, allow yourself to accept your level of play and still be able to enjoy the outcome. Where you find yourself is where you are. Gaming is a factor of skill not luck. You can always depend on your skill. The more you invest in knowledge and learn the game, the better your results will be in the long run!

3.      You enter the game with only so many “nickels”, at least make every nickel play with a properly supported bankroll. Make the smart plays that have the best return for the money at risk. It is all about keeping “the ball” in play as long as possible.

4.      If you attempt to manipulate a game, do so with a subtle touch. When you “tilt” the machine, the game is over. It is a fine line between conservative play and knowing when to lean into the game. The old pinball game had a pendulum hanging inside the game. Pushing on the table would cause the pendulum to swing. If it swung too much, it would close a circuit and switch off the game. When playing craps, be mindful about swinging the pendulum out of control. You control the game by being in control of yourself.

5.      You never know when a game is going to break loose with a “monster roll”. When the opportunity arrives, have the awareness and know how to handle it. First, you have to be at the table when it does. Second you have to have something better than guessing to take advantage of it. (Never missing an opportunity is something I covered during the Dice Busters Weekend coming this month.)

6.      Gaming is like a two-edged sword. If you play too long, the odds will eat you alive. At the same time, if you cannot sustain your bankroll long enough, you will not be standing at the table when the hot hand does come along. You must have some method, some system of grasping opportunity automatically and you must have some way of playing the game that extends you limited funds, 5 cents for 5 balls.

7.      You do not have to be obsessive or compulsive. You have to be in control and play with disciplined. After all, who is going to look after you? You must be in control of you. Only you can put yourself in a game and only you can pull yourself out.

8.      Limit your session to one bankroll, win or lose. When you have played all your “nickels", be disciplined enough to peddle your bicycle home. It’s probably time for lunch anyway.


The intended purpose of this metaphorical story is for you take a look at how you play your game. The person you take to the casino is the same person that you take into the game of life. All your strengths and all your weaknesses are always with you. You can only change those things that you truly wish to change. You can have anything you want but for one thing. You have to want it and you have to take the necessary action to get it.


Back in the days when I worked with Stuart Wilde seminars, participants were challenged to look at their lives. A person facing a challenging situation might be asked, “How is this like your life?” Meaning, do you see a pattern here? Is there a connection with your actions or reactions to this particular event and the way you function in “real life”?


For me, I think the pinball metaphor was a proving ground for the gaming experience that was to come in later life. How is it like my life? I approach both pinball and gaming in a similar manner; first, by striving for excellence and second, by playing with a passion to win, never settling for less than my best.


How do you approach casino games? How is it like your life? Take a moment for introspection. Reflect on any similarities between the game and your life. Be aware of anything that comes up that you may wish to change or improve? Until you stop to observe yourself, you tend not to notice yourself. There is so much more to the game than meets the eye. The tendency is to take for granted the obvious and accept it as truth. What is the truth? Reality is just a thought form. Simply changing your thought form, you change your reality. Strive for excellence and settling for nothing less than your best is a thought form. What you put out you will get back in return. Come from a big energy and the dedication of a winner. Check yourself when scarcity or lack tries to sneak in to your life. It is not just a way to play games. It is a life style. You can win them all.

Today's Wisdom:


Creating miracles in your life is no more complicated than understanding the metaphysics of the Universal Law. And because that law is indestructible and therefore infinite, we know that the power used by miracle-makers in the past is till available today. Yet, in our modern society we are brought up to believe only in those things we can logically understand. We are not taught either that the Universal Law has limitless potential or that this power is at our disposal and can be used to work miracles in our own lives.
