§ 623a.7. Dice retention and selection.

 (a)  A set of five dice shall be present at the Craps or Mini-Craps table during gaming. Control of the dice at a Craps table, or at a Mini-Craps table with an optional stickperson, shall be the responsibility of the stickperson at the table. Control of the dice at a Mini-Craps table without an optional stickperson shall be the responsibility of the dealer at the table. The stickperson or Mini-Craps dealer shall retain all dice, except those in active play, in a dice cup at the table.

 (b)  At the commencement of play:

   (1)  For Craps, the stickperson shall offer the set of dice to the player immediately to the left of the boxperson at the table. If that player rejects the dice, the stickperson shall offer the dice to each of the other players in turn clockwise around the table until one of the players accepts the dice.

   (2)  For Mini-Craps, the dealer or the optional Mini-Craps stickperson shall offer the set of dice to the player immediately to his left at the table. If that player rejects the dice, the dealer or stickperson shall offer the dice to each of the other players in turn clockwise around the table until one of the players accepts the dice.

 (c)  The first player to accept the dice when offered shall become the shooter who shall select and retain two of the dice offered. The remaining dice of the set shall be returned to the dice cup which shall:

   (1)  For Craps, be placed immediately in front of the Craps stickperson.

   (2)  For Mini-Craps, be placed immediately in front of the Mini-Craps dealer or stickperson.

 (d)  A set of five dice used at a Craps or Mini-Craps table shall be changed at least once every 24 hours. A new set of dice shall be used when a Craps or Mini-Craps table is reopened for gaming, if a die goes off the table during play and is lost or if the dice show signs of tampering or alteration or are otherwise marked, chipped, scratched or no longer suitable for play.
