Heavy’s & DarthN8r’s 

Las Vegas June Jam 2

June 11th – 13th, 2021

Craps players –  between them, Heavy and DarthNater have a combined Seventy plus years experience at craps.  Heavy has been teaching advantage craps play since 2001 and still plays regularly at his local casinos.  Nate has been an advantage dice player for almost twenty years and lives in Las Vegas, where he plays three to four days a week.  Both use the same techniques and betting strategies they teach.  A lot of coaches talk about winning at craps.  Fortunately, there are a few who actually do it, and Heavy and DarthNater are at the top of the list.

The upcoming June Jam weekend includes FOUR available BoneTracker training sessions, a full day of dice control training that includes right side and dark side approaches to the game – plus our latest strategies on money management, discipline, and getting the money.  And an Advanced Betting Strategy Session that includes our favorite “serious money” techniques for betting both the “Do’s” and the “Don’ts.”  You can sign on for any or all of them.

Let’s talk first about BoneTracker – the original Roll Tracking Program that set the standard for the rest of them.  We’ve extended the capabilities of BoneTracker beyond its original 64 dice set permutations to all 576 possible permutations in order to allow you to analyze your toss from every possible set available.  This new beta version is only available at this time to students who enroll in the Advanced BoneTracking Session, where we do a complete analysis of 720 of your rolls and provide you with the results.  Of course, if you’re just starting out with BoneTracker we recommend the Basic BoneTracker class utilizing the Original BoneTracker 64 until you become familiar with all of the programs tabs and capabilities.  Then progress on to the Advanced version.

We’re offering FOUR BoneTracker Training Sessions on Friday, the 11th – two in the morning and two in the afternoon. Two are Basic BoneTracking Sessions for those of you just learning the software, and Two Advanced BoneTracking Sessions for those of you who have the software down pat but want some expert analysis of your toss results.

The Basic BoneTracking class will take you through all of the information you need to know to be able to track and analyze your own rolls in BoneTracker, including the data entry page and the transition tabs. The Advanced BoneTracking Sessions will build on that and provide you with a personal analysis of 720 of your own rolls while taking a deep dive into your best dice sets for every number on the layout.

These classes sell out at every seminar so first to register fills the bill and once these slots are filled they are filled. The cost of these sessions breaks down as follows:

Basic BoneTracking Class: $299
Advanced BoneTracking Class: $399
BOTH Basic and Advanced Classes Combined: $649

Students signing up for the Advanced BoneTracking Class must submit a book of 720 rolls in BoneTracker format no later than June 1st to allow time for the coaches to complete their analysis of the rolls.

Note that the BoneTracker slots are not available on the Axis Power Craps Golden Ticket option.

It’s hard to beat a weekend with old friends and new, great comps, an abundance of craps options including some of the best tables in the country. On Friday night, conditions permitting, we’ll hold our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together. We’ll hook up at a local casino Bar to knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones.

Hungry? We know some local joints that serve great BBQ, something that’s difficult for a Texas boy to say about smoked meat from any other State. But if you want Steak, Italian, or Seafood there plenty of options available.

Afterwards you’ll be on your own to hit the casinos alone or in teams to take on the tables. But don’t be out partying all night and don’t blow the bankroll before you’ve even stepped into the classroom because Saturday morning Nate and I will have serious craps training on our minds.

Saturday’s class will take place Nate’s “secret” location out near M Resort. Nate lives in a beautiful home on the golf course with a million-dollar view of the Las Vegas valley.  His table was custom-designed for DI training, with one end microfiber and the other traditional felt. All attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on coaching from both Nate and myself. We both teach the traditional on-axis toss and both have the same objective – getting you the best, most profitable toss ever. My primary betting focus is on right-side play while Nate loves the Don’ts. You should walk away from this weekend a much better balanced player with an entirely new perspective on the game.

Among the material we’ll cover:

Table Positions – stick left isn’t the only spot in town!
Correct Dice Sets and how to get there quickly!
Correct Grip for you based on the physical shape of your hand.
Correct Toss for you – depending on your physical stature and ability.
Focus, Breath Control, and Landing Zone
Visualization and the Mental Edge
Right Side Betting Progressions, Money Management and Discipline
Basic Don’t Play

Each attendee will receive a copy of Heavy’s Axis Power Craps Seminar on DVD if you don’t already have it. You’ll also receive a complete training manual with all of the information we cover in the class and more.  During the class we’ll complete a one-on-one toss analysis and a written toss improvement plan. But don’t just come out for the personal toss instruction. You’ll learn even more by watching Heavy and Nate coach the other attendees.

Around mid-day we break for lunch, typically down at one of the local casinos. If time permits we may play a brief live session at the casino, providing the coaches an opportunity to observe the players in action. After that session we’ll critique the results when we return to Nate’s place, then continue with the afternoon’s session on betting strategies, money management, and discipline with additional toss training as time permits.

Saturday’s session is available stand-alone at the following pricing:

First-time student tuition for students who have never attended a Dice Control Seminar in the past is $995 for the full day Saturday PLUS all Live Casino Sessions on Sunday.

Golden Touch Craps Alums, Howard Rock ‘n Roller Alums, and Dice Coach Alums – in recognition of the fact that you learned an on-axis type toss with these organizations we offer a $100 discount off our New Student tuition. Your tuition for the Full Day Saturday and all Live Casinos on Sunday is $895.

Note that enrollment  in the Saturday session also includes the opportunity to play the live sessions with the coaches on Sunday afternoon at no charge.  Yes, that’s right.  Axis Power Craps coaches actually accompany you to the casino, step up to the table and play with you betting their own money.  Virtually no one else in the dice control business does that.

Want to strengthen your game even more? On Sunday morning Heavy and DarthNater will be offering their Advanced Betting Strategy Seminar featuring their  favorite Right Side and Dark Side strategies.  Remember, if you don’t learn to play the Don’ts you’re guaranteed to lose around 50% of the time at craps. Learn to play the Dark side and pick your entry points correctly and you will increase your win rate dramatically. Learn to increase your profit on your right-side play and your bankroll will grow even more. That’s exactly what this Advanced Betting Session is all about. The cost?  Just $395.

Remember, Axis Power Craps is the oldest continuously operated dice control school in the business.  Heavy and DarthNater have trained thousands of students – some who have themselves gone on to become some of the best dice controllers around and are now coaching students themselves.  Between Heavy’s Right-Side approach to the game and DarthNater’s Dark Side approach – you can’t go wrong.

June is the perfect time to hit Vegas – Beat the Summer heat!  Make your plans and sign on today.

Space IS limited due to Covid restrictions. As always, your tuition covers the cost of the seminar itself and all hand-out material. Attendees are on their own for transportation, meals, and accommodations. Remember, these events are intended to be instructional – educational weekends. While many players walk away from these events winners – there is no guarantee that you will win at any casino session. It’s still gambling and you could lose. Don’t gamble with money you cannot afford to lose. 

See you on the Strip in Vegas!

  • Recognizing Craps Shooters, Streaks and Trends

    Craps is a game of streaks. Streaks of Point – Seven Out. Streaks of Point – Pass, and most often, choppy streaks where there is no dominant trend.  Recreational gamblers tend to believe strongly in streaks and trends, probably because in hindsight, this is when they’ve won most of...

    It was Monday morning, right after breakfast.  We’d just opened a table and played once around the tub with no one catching anything more than a mid-teen level hand.  Then I got the dice and embarked on a 45 minute – 40 rolls mini-monster. As the hand progressed, and...
