    Craps player sets record at NJ casino

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Saturday was a record-setting night for a novice craps player at an Atlantic City casino.

    Patricia Demauro set a new record for the longest craps roll, hanging on for four hours and 18 minutes at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

    Borgata officials say she beat the previous record by one hour and 12 minutes. They say Stanley Fujitake of Honolulu, set that record nearly 20 years ago in Las Vegas.......

    That is so crazy. The odds of dice say that should be impossible.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I read this earlier today....incredible.

    I guess some would call it Beginners Luck.

    Happens though. I have golfed for going on my second year and I got a hole in one today. I called a buddy of mine that has been golfing for a good long time to tell him the good news, he congratulated me with,"That's one more than I have shot." I'm not a good golfer, just a good day on the course.

    I saw this story yesterday.
    And immediately wished I had been on that table.
    I've made several hundreds of dollars from a guy rolling for 45 minutes.
    4 hours?
    Big bucks.

    The angle of her being a newbie at craps is crap.
    There's nothing but random luck involved in avoiding the untimely seven, whether she's thrown the dice once before or a thousand times.

    4 hours and 18 min's?????






    If you weren't at that table when she hit around the 30 min mark, no way in hell you would get a standing spot at that table....
    But I bet who ever was by her side, walked away with fat pockets and big ass smiles on their faces....
    The casino was in the back room, crying their asses off..LMFAO.




    I can't imagine how much money I could have walked away with, after following "LADY LUCK'S" lead.....Unreal


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Given how I play craps, I would have crushed them.
    Example:
    when I'm playing the numbers across, I press up a unit after every other hit.
    I don't waste a lot of money on the hard-ways or any of that stuff.


    Still - even a conservative player would have beaten the snot outta the casino.
    4 hours is just insane.
