Heavy’s Axis Power Craps

Biloxi Dice Bake and Hookup Hullabaloo

July 19th – 21st, 2024


Our “regulars” absolutely LOVE these Biloxi Beach Bashes, so we’re heading back again in the High Season.  It’ll be party time on the beach, hot shooter time in the casino, and time to get it on with the winningest team in craps – the Axis Power Craps team.

Biloxi has it all. Ten casinos on the Biloxi/Gulfport Gulf Coast, including Caesars, Boyd, MGM, and Hard Rock properties. Fantastic odds at craps, with most properties offering 10X odds and the IP standing above the others with 20X odds. Are you a non-smoker? There’s a property or two just for you. Love low-limit games? Yeah, you can find those too. Plus, there are still a few casino buffets running on the coast that are just outstanding! Dealers? Biloxi has some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable you’ll ever meet. Comps? Typically, easy to earn and generous if you’re good player. Oh, and unlike Las Vegas – Biloxi has an ocean to go with its beach. Thirteen miles of white sand and sun. It’s my favorite place in the USA to play craps, and I’ve played just about every market in the country.  

This weekend will feature the traditional Friday night Meet and Greet get-together – a chance for attendees to put faces with names, swap a few war stories, and perhaps make plans for dinner, drinks, or an evening at the tables. Enjoy yourselves, but don’t be out too late, because we’ll have a full day of training on slate for Saturday.

Saturday’s class will be at a local casino dealer school, beginning at 9AM and running through approximately 5:30PM. There will be roughly a 45-minute break for lunch around mid-day at a local sandwich shop a block down the street from the school. This will be a full day of dice control training, focusing on the mechanics of the grip and toss, including set, grip, aim, focus, breath control, visualization, landing zone, execution, and follow through. We’ll teach you how to read the dice and how they interact with the layout – and how to interpret that interaction and make adjustments to your grip and toss to correct any errors. We’ll practice shooting from alternate positions – Stick Left, Stick Right, and Straight Out. And, given time, we will play a mock session using casino chips and incorporate some Basic DI Betting Strategies into your play. All that and more on Day One.

Saturday night you’re on your own to hook up with your fellow students and coaches for live play, dinner, entertainment, or just to hang out and chill. Again, I don’t recommend staying out too late. Typically, Saturday nights are not conducive to winning play in the casino due to crowded tables and the abundance of “amateurs.” It’s always better to get to bed early, then get up early in the morning and play a “coffee run” session under better conditions.

Sunday morning we’ll meet up once again at the dealer school for the Advanced Betting Strategy Session. This session will begin at 9AM and will wrap up no later than 1PM. We’ll move right into Right-Side betting strategies. We’ll cover reading a table, presses, power presses, regressions, etc., then move on to Straddle Plays and Hybrid strategies for transitioning back and forth from the Right SIde to the Dark Side. From there we’ll move right on into Dark Side Plays and how to implement them into your game and use them as a springboard back to the right side when the heat turns back on. Just about every strategy we discuss will have a specific live-session example associated with it that we can discuss – and examples where the play in question has worked far beyond expectations (or failed miserably). This session will definitely put some new power tools in your craps tool box.

We will wrap up the session at 1:00 PM with plans to reconvene at one of the local casinos later in the afternoon for live play. Location and exact time to be announced at the seminar itself. Play is planned to last roughly three hours, depending on table conditions. The intent is to play two ninety-minute sessions, but if we get on a table and it is running warm to hot, we will continue to play it until it stops paying, even if it goes beyond the three-hour mark. At the end of the live sessions the seminar weekend will “officially” be over. However . . .

Don’t forget Hangover Monday. Hangover Monday is that Monday after the seminar weekend when the coaches and many of the students who have been to a few of these classes like to “hang over” for another day to get in some additional play before heading home. So, we book our rooms for Monday with a Tuesday departure so we can have the casino to ourselves for the day. There are fewer players, more open spots at the tables, often lower limits, and the pressure to perform is off so frequently the hands are longer and the money won is bigger. Best of all, it doesn’t cost you a dime more to hang over and hang out with us (unless you’re having to pay extra for the room or you drop a few bucks at the tables) so why not? I will definitely be there. Heck, I may hang around on Tuesday as well if I can get away with it. LOL.

  • Pacing your Play

    I often say that playing craps is like stepping onto a battlefield. It is you against the casino. Unless you are a skilled shooter, every wager on the layout has you at a disadvantage. The casino has unlimited ammunition in the form of its bankroll, while you are limited...
