Golden Touch Craps is a no B.S. class. You rotate from station to station in your small group along with your mentor so you get to throw under the watchful eye of each instructor. The instructors and mentors are very encouraging and completely focused on you while you are throwing. It was validating to have different instructors catch the same mistakes I was making. In addition each instructor found a different flaw in my stance, grip, or delivery.
I've studied the books, video's, dvd, and practiced religiously on my own with little success. At the end of the 1st day the instructors had my throw doing what I've been striving to do for 2 unsuccessful years! If your wondering if the tuition is worth it; YES IT IS! I wonder how much money I could have won from the casino's instead of loosing to them had I taken the class from the start of my craps journey.
In addition to now having what I believe is a money making throw, the class is entertaining & fun! I was a little shocked when 5 o'clock rolled around as fast as it did. I had been in class all day but didn't want to leave when class was over for the day. I made good memories, new friends and can't wait to return!
I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of the instructors and fellow students that took the GTC class in Vegas last month.
I cant say enough about the value of the education and hands on instruction from each and instructor.
Golden Buckeye (formerly Mr. Buckeye) and I went out to the casinos late afternoon on Sunday. It was the first time since taking up controlled shooting that we walked away with money, enough to pay for one of our class fees.
Golden Buckeye rolled first, and came away with a 27, making 7 points, the 6 & 8 twice each. I followed immediately with a 25, my first 8 rolls were 6, 6, 8, 8,8,8 (hard), 6 (hard) 8. I thought I was dreaming, but I then realized that I felt dream-like because I was able to shut out all the other distractions and focus on my throw. This was the real deal. The rest of the weekend when equally well, we didnt have any rolls that were not in the twenties.
We are really looking forward to continuing this path, and are looking forward to the refresher class next year.
Thank you all again for everything, it was a true pleasure to meet such a fine group of people.
I just have 1 word for our full craps table: WOW!!!
The crate sat in my garage, the big pieces in the box. We removed the small items right away, but as I said before, we could not get the 2 big horse shoe pieces down into my basement.
Fortunately, I have an unused workshop in the back of my house. It was not heated or cooled, but now I did buy a nice heater for it. Later, I will install an Air Conditioning unit.
It took us a week to figure out how to solve the "table too big" problem, but once I decided to fix up the workshop, it only took about 2 hours to assemble the table!!!
What a genius you are for the easy table, Dom!!! I was afraid it would be your typical engineering nightmare to figure out the assembly. Not at all!
I'm even more excited now about the classes in Tunica!!!
If anyone is interested in your table, I can certainly vouch for it!
Your Seminar I took this weekend was one of the best Training Seminars that I ever took. There was never a dull minute throughout the entire Seminar. You guys mentioned before and during the Seminar, that the GTC instructors were the best in craps. They were every bit of that statement plus some. They were Superior. I want to say that every one of them had the best personality of any instructors that I ever had. They had an attitude like they want us to be as good as them. All of us got personal training from them. From this class, we got a message from Dom, that you really want all of us to be good Crap Players.
Dom your entire team is all about class.
Thanks Dom for the advice... What a great group of GTC instructors you have on board!!!! I am proud to be associated with the GTC organization.
Thanks again for a great craps class session! Each and every instructor gave their honest and expert advice for the perfect throw. It really showed that the instructors are passionate about Golden Touch and the game of craps. I mentioned to John that learning from you was like getting lessons from Mickey Mantel in baseball or Tiger Woods in golf. What an awesome experience for the both of us!!!! My goal is to practice 200 rolls per day and maybe someday join the Golden Touch team!!!! John and I both hit 30-35 number rolls which paid for the classes this weekend. What a great way to end the perfect weekend and coming in third place in the no sevens contest. When I arrived back home, my wife and I were evacuated due to the fires here in San Diego and a 50 ft fire ball came a few blocks from our home. Luckily our home was saved but some of our neighbors were not so lucky. The key is to live life to its fullest because shit happens!!! Let me know when our table is ready to ship. See you next year at the refresher course!!!

I picked up three excellent pointers, one of which I had never even dreamed of! By the end of Day 1 I noticed major improvement – more improvement expected after practice. I’ve played for a number of years and wish I’d discovered this years ago. I’d recommend [this course] to all players who are serious.
I’m glad I took the class! I have changed my grip and will improve the angle of my toss. The teachers were great!

Intense two days. Great job! Well done Dom. The course is well organized and very professional. I recommend this course to all serious players. This course has it all. Easy to read textbooks that are well written, hands on, with a real casino environment simulation and a wealth of knowledge to bring home and practice, practice, practice. Thank you!
The small size of the class was outstanding with a lot of one-on-one assistance. Working with three different instructors made the learning process an eye-opening experience. If one instructor couldn’t give you the correct mental image of the feel, one of the others could. Realistic expectations were emphasized and all questions were answered in depth. Throwing on actual tables really assisted in the learning process as well as the “real life” casino experience. All the major elements were covered, including money management, betting and the mental side of the game. The class was designed around the needs and expectations of the students. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in learning or improving a controlled dice throw.

Great class, both informative and fun. The refinement made to my grip and delivery will pay huge dividends in the future. Some of the small insights and secrets were very enlightening. The small class and all the one-on-one training made all the difference. Come to the training and be confident that you will learn!
I took the Golden Touch Gold Chip plus package in Las Vegas and I have to say it was worth five times as much as I paid. The instructors were fantastic. Doing hands-on with Mr. Finesse, Dominator, Billy the Kid was a thrilling learning experience. I recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in beating the game of craps.
This class was worth the time and the money. The learning curve just took a big step in the right direction!
Byron Center, MI
This is my third craps class and it by far exceeds those other classes. The time spent with the coaches in improving my performance was more than I expected. The lectures were informative and provided valuable information and methods for improving my dice control and craps game. Listening to Dom is a treat that I looked forward. He did not disappoint. I recommend this class to anyone who is serious about playing craps and taking money from the casinos.
The GTC organization is doing gamblers a great service.

You have a wonderful, fun, lighthearted team of instructors who really go the distance to help people feel welcome and comfortable. The instruction was professional and well organized, and always interesting. Overall GTC is fantastic and worth every bit of the travel, preparation and money. I highly recommend it because you really can't get good without the hands-on.
Everything you guys are teaching is right on the money.
I met a Golden Touch instructor who worked with me for 30 minutes. After seeing what 30 minutes could do for my game, I signed up for the entire course and am glad I did. The breakout sessions where the coaches went over what was just taught were just great. He has one of the nicest tosses I have seen and taught his students how to emulate it.

What a great class! I'm so excited about the things I learned. A good mixture of mechanics and down-to-earth money-management and betting tips. Thank you all for the effort you put in.
Everybody was great. The class was the best. I don't think you could have done better - perfect!
Great weekend, great facility, and above all, great instruction. This weekend has enabled me to use the 8 elements of dice control to my advantage.

I was a little skeptical about the claims, decided at the last moment to attend. After using the [methods] my confidence has increased ten-fold. It also helped that I made quite a bit of money Saturday and Sunday. I would strongly recommend this class to anyone with an interest in improving their odds.
