How long can you hold dice in craps before they get annoyed?

I’m learning to throw dice and have not been in a casino with craps before.How long can I hold the dice and change the set and get my grip right before the dice dealer will get annoyed at me?

Will the casino ask me to leave if I’m slow at it but still bet on my turn every time?

    The dealers may get annoyed but they are not likely to say anything. The boxman and the supervisor will tell you to pick them up and shoot. We know that no dice-setting method affects the outcome but we also do not want someone slowing down our game. There are people waiting to play the game. Do not waste our time or theirs by setting dice. I try to be tolerant and give people a moment to set dice. It is not like the old days when you would either pick up the dice and shoot or we would pass you by.

    Shoot them. Shoot them now. Just like the voices in your head said when you saw your family for the last time.

    You will not be thrown out of the casino for dice setting. You will not be asked to leave the table. But if you set dice and we tell you to throw them we can pass the dice to some other player who will finish out your hand. You can continue to play craps but lose the privilege of shooting.

    In general the dealers want a fast throw. Holding or shaking the dice for more than 3-4 seconds may get a comment, longer than that will definitely get a comment.

    In my experience the stickman is the one who tries to keep the play speed up.

    In general, I will always set the dice on the table to the number I wish to throw, this takes only a second. I remove my hand for a millisecond to display the dice, open palm up, then swoop them up, swirl once and throw them in one movement against the opposite wall. I try to make the throw go a bit higher than the table wall height, bounce on the table and then hit the wall.

    No one has ever complained about this, as long as I hit the wall each time.

    I also use the Calculated Craps method to bet, it seems to work for me. Here is a link:

    Also, I always am sure to tip by putting a bet on the pass line for the crew I start throwing. This makes them both happy and a bit more tolerant of me! lol

    Pick them up and let them go.
