FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE Golden Touch, DICE CONTROL, AND CRAPS
WHAT KIND OF BETTING SYSTEM IS THIS?
Golden Touch dice control is not a betting system. Betting systems, of whatever nature, cannot overcome the house edge in casino craps. We know this from a mathematical analysis of the game and from extensive computer simulations. Golden Touch is a physical skill that imposes a degree of control over the outcome of a dice roll. If you take the dice in your hands, shake them up, and wing them down the table, the game is random - and it can't be beaten. You can only beat craps if you de-randomize the game - in your favor - by perfecting your Golden Touch.
DOES IT REALLY WORK?
Yes, based on the real casino play of the Captain, the Arm and others who have perfected the Golden Touch and recorded thousands of playing sessions and hundreds of thousands of dice rolls, the method really works. Our instructors and students keep accurate records of their casino sessions and their practice sessions, so that they can verify that they are indeed changing a negative expectation into a positive expectation by their skill. These statistics are as valid as baseball batting averages. If you want to know who is the hitter who has the best chance of hitting a home run next time at bat, you look at past performance and make a decision accordingly. If you take a Golden Touch dice control seminar, we encourage you to keep accurate records of your performance - so that you are never conning yourself into thinking you have an edge if you do not. It also helps to know what degree of an edge you have in order to calculate what kinds of bets to make. Golden Touch is not a skill you learn by magic or by wishing and hoping - just as you don't learn to hit a baseball, or shoot a basketball or ice skate without practice and discipline. But, once again, yes, it does work!
WHAT KIND OF EDGE CAN I GET?
The edge you achieve is based on your skill level - and the discipline you have when others are shooting the dice. Many dice controllers who do not subscribe to the Golden Touch program give away their edge when other players shoot; or they make bets that their skill level can't possibly overcome. If you have a 5% edge over the casino but insist on making bets that have 6% to 13% edges for the casino, you cannot win at casino craps. Players who make a steady diet of bad bets, even if they have good dice control skills, are ultimately losers.
CAN ANYONE DO IT?
Theoretically, it should be possible for anyone to do it, just as it should be theoretically possible for anyone to hit a baseball. The fact is, unfortunately, that not everyone can do it in the real world of casino play. A small minority of people just won't have the physical dexterity or small and large muscle control to effectively master all 8 Physical Elements of the Golden Touch dice control technique. Some people just won't have the discipline to work at their Golden Touch method. Like bowling, tennis, or any other physical skill, a person must work at it to become proficient. It requires dedication and practice. While we wish we could say that anyone can learn this technique, the fact is that some cannot or, more likely, will not. Dice control is not magic; it's not a "fool-proof" dream-world system because it is a real-world skill. As such, you get out of it what you put into it.
CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT I'LL WIN?
No one can guarantee that you'll win. We are not selling a television set or a computer, we are selling a course that teaches a skill that you have to work at to master - a money making skill if you do master it. But we expect you to be honest with yourself. You can't, as we've said above, make high house-edge bets, or bet on all the other shooters, and expect to turn a profit. If you do that, no skill can overcome the house edge. That's the truth. Like card counting at blackjack, the Golden Touch method works - if you make it work! We guarantee that we will teach you what we say we teach you - but whether you learn it, become proficient, and master it, is completely up to you.
DO I HAVE TO MEMORIZE DOZENS OF DICE SETS?
Knowing dozens upon dozens of dice sets just means that you know dozens upon dozens of dice sets. It doesn't mean you have a controlled dice throw and can flip the game to your advantage. There is some confusion in the craps-playing community about dice sets and advantage-play. Self-styled experts laud a multitude of dice sets for this or that occasion but fail to mention if you can't deliver the dice properly, the dice set is meaningless. By way of analogy, it's nice to know the names of all the different pitches a pitcher can throw, but if you can't actually throw the pitch, you haven't achieved anything. To gain an advantage at craps, dice setting is only one element. There are seven other components to be concerned about as well - several more important than an extensive knowledge of arcane dice sets. The Golden Touch philosophy of dice setting is clear and simple: we don't concentrate on a multitude of trivia. We concentrate on the most important elements that have been shown to work and we work, work, work on those!
CAN I LEARN THIS WITHOUT TAKING A COURSE?
It is theoretically possible to learn dice control without taking a course, just as it is theoretically possible to learn medicine without actually taking any courses with certified doctors. You could attempt to learn from extensive trial and error in the casinos. This can be costly. In reality, hands-on instruction, coupled with an intellectual grasp of the material presented, is the best way to master a subject or a skill. All athletes have personal trainers and coaches, even the very best ones.
WHAT KIND OF BETTING STRATEGY SHOULD I EMPLOY?
Again, the Golden Touch is not a betting system, it's a skill; although we do teach several betting strategies depending on your objectives and skill level. When you play a casino game such as craps, you must employ a betting scheme of some sort, but as a Golden Touch controlled shooter that betting scheme must be optimized to achieve two things:
1. to reduce exposure to the house edge when others shoot (we call these
"others" random rollers) and,
2. to maximize your winning potential when you or another controlled shooter
Again, you cannot expect to turn a profit at craps if you make poor betting choices.
WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO POST ON INTERNET SITES ABOUT THEIR INCREDIBLE WINNING PARLAYS AND PROGRESSIONS ON WHIRL OR ANY CRAPS OR OTHER SUCH BETS?
Take such information with a grain of reality. Bets that are coming in with incredibly high house edges can only be overcome by a shooter who has flipped the game by such an incredible degree. Such shooters are rare, although someof them are on our Golden Touch faculty.
IF YOUR TEACHERS ARE SO GOOD WHY ARE THEY TEACHING?
The old cliché "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach," sounds profound and appears to be a witty way of mocking individuals who belong to a given profession. Unfortunately, like most cliches it suffers upon examination. The greatest teachers in the world are usually those who have actually accomplished something in their given field. The greatest learning for a student comes under the tutelage of those who "can do" and "can teach." as well. The Golden Touch instructors, each and every one of them, have been successful in their chosen fields and at the craps tables - and they can do, in the casino, exactly what they are teaching you!
WHAT KIND OF FOLLOW-UP DO YOU GIVE YOUR STUDENTS?
As a Golden Touch student, you can always contact one of our instructors with any question that you have at any time after you've completed your course. You can also post such questions on our member's only website. Since our instructors are spread out across the country, it is likely that you can arrange to meet them in the casino to have some hands-on instruction and play. We also offer discounts for all our packages to repeat students, who are looking to sharpen their skills or upgrade their knowledge.
ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN COSTS?
We recommend that you read three books on dice control and craps strategies for this course:
Forever Craps: The Five-Step Advantage-Play Method! by Frank Scoblete
Get the Edge at Craps: How to Control the Dice! by Sharpshooter
Way of the Warrior Trader by Dr. Richard McCall
We recommend that you have your own Golden Touch practice station so that you can practice your control skills regularly at home and in your hotel room.
Depending on the package you select, one or more of the recommended items will come with it. If the item is not a part of the package, we recommend that you purchase it on your own, but you are under no obligation to do so.
