Hi people. What size are standard casino dice?

When playing / hustling with dice outside the casinos, is it often the same size or always different sizes?

Planning on learning a few switches.

3/4" in the store. 5/8" is more common on the street. A lot of people use casino dice in their homes though. Sorry, don't know what those sizes translate to in the metric sysytem.

Be sure to practice with the size you intend to use, moving from the 5/8" to the 3/4" is like moving up to a childs wooden blocks if you've been ONLY working with the 5/8".

I think you should practice with both and get good at both.. also try and get used to different edges in dice as well... it makes a difference in the hands of a magician.

I think that 19mm dice are the easiest and I think they use the same size of dice in casinos.

Casinos use 3/4 inch razor cut dice. I have had great experince using these. You can actually do some neat palms/etc because of the sharp edges. I have found them to be useful for the Sachs routine as well.

Hi

What is "Sachs routine"? Don't know anything about dice unfortunately. I will try to find a couple of different pair of dice. Thanks everyone.

Dr. Sachs dice routine and Bob Sheets "It's the rules" IT is difficult to explain but a great close up trick. Basically the dots transpose and jump around. Very strong. Do a google search of Bob Sheets It's the rules and there are many better explanations than I can give. Since I learned it I never leave home without two dice in my pocket.

I've got the Bob Sheets DVD -'It's the Rules' and it is EXCELLENT a very good routine that builds up to a stunning climax. I'm currently using a couple of red transparent 19mm dice for this routine. However, I would like to move up to the dice size that Bob Sheets uses on the DVD. Anyone know the size that he uses - or a link to where I can buy this size?

Many thanks
Paul

Paul, would you mind telling me what the effect/s is/are? Sounds interesting. I am waiting for 10 casino dice at the moment.

With the razor cut casino dice you can do a quick but impressive move as part of your handling: hold a die by opposite corners between your thumb and forefinger, then blow against the side. It will spin very quickly, usually with a distinctive whirring sound. If you hold it loosely, it will spin long enough for you to make your pass, toss, etc. You can even hold one in each hand close together and blow BETWEEN them to make them both spin at once.
