Thanks for the app. It’s excellent and taught me how to play craps. Great job!
I had a quick question about the statistics side of the actual game of the casino. After playing with your app, I mustered up enough courage to sheepishly place a bet at the craps table. The first thing that caught my attention was the crazy rituals that the dice throwers go through before they actually throw the dice. One of them in particular intrigued me, and that was the mini practice rolls that they do before they actually throw the dice. My question is whether the practice rolls have any effect on the chance of crapping out; that is, if the thrower rolls a 7 on her practice roll, does that, statistically, lower the chance of her rolling a seven on her actual roll?
As a funny aside, when it was my turn to throw the dice, I dismissed all of the rituals as silly and just chunked the dice down the table… I crapped out both times I rolled….Thanks again for the app!

No, assuming you do a proper roll of the dice, running the length of the table and bouncing off the uneven surface at the other end, your rolls are completely random. The only thing you can do to affect the outcome on the dice is to practice dice setting techniques and throw short rolls. This will usually get you in trouble with the dealer but I have seen people get away with it.
