Your every day dice thrower can expect to roll 8 times at the craps table before sevening out, that’s the average, 8 rolls, and then 7-craps. Well…Patricia Demauro of New Jersey is not your average dice thrower, and in 2009, she set the gambling world a buzz! A Grandma who was feeelin’ it, the greatest craps roll ever today on High Roller Radio.
Out for a night of gambling, she was having no success at the penny slots when her friend, who was losing at poker, asked her if she wanted to try craps. “Why not?” She said. When it was her turn, she rubbed her hands together, picked up the dice, and began to throw.
Craps is the most popular dice game in the world, certainly the most exciting. Its a game of chance not skill, with a slight house edge, about 1.4 percent…, harder to beat than blackjack, but easier than roulette. Its a fast game too, and for Demauro, a novice at the game, it must have been like speaking a foreign language.
“There are all these terms I didn’t know, people were yelling at me,” she said. But she kept tossing those dice, another throw, another point hit, more throws, hard eights, snake eyes, 8’s, 10’s, a hard 4 for good measure. The dealer kept retrieving the dice and she kept throwing – 154-times in all. Yes, 154! Enough to make it the greatest craps roll all-time. Took her an astonishing 4 hours 18 minutes! Talk about a good night. The casino so impressed it broke out the bubbly.
We know she started with 100 bucks, and while there’s no word on exactly how much she made, if she made decent bets, it would have been in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Experts bets and it would be million. Happened may 23rd, 2009 at the Borgata…
Before her, the longest craps roll lasted three hours and six minutes in las vegas in 1989, 118 rolls… And according former guest of our show, Frank Soblete, author of Beat the Craps Out of the Casinos, the previous best for highest number of successive dice rolls was 147, by a man known as the “Captain” in 2005.
By the way…, what are the odds of Demauro’s unlikely performance at the craps table? 154 rolls without severing out? Well, According to Stanford University statistics professor Thomas Cover, the probability has been calculated at 1 in 1.56 trillion, chances smaller than getting struck by lightning or winning the lottery.
154 rolls…and no sevens baby! Patricia Demauro…a grandma with the greatest craps roll ever today on HRR.
