What’s the story with ear buds?

The forum name says it all. You're new to the game of craps and don't have a clue where to begin. Pass Line. Don't Pass. Come. Don't Come. Hardways. Big Six. Big Eight. The Horn. Good Grief! Sounds like back when you were trying to make a decision about what to do in the back seat on that first car date. Well never fear! There are a few folks around here who have spent enough time at the tables to be able to answer just about any question you may have. So step right up and get a clue!

What’s the story with ear buds?

Wireless of course, blue tooth? Can we wear one or two at the tables? Having Tony Robbins lecturing us, how could we lose? Just wondering, need another way to keep focus and keep the main thing the main thing.

If it were possible to use them at the tables, it would be ideal for a voice activated data entry app for recording rolls

Had a small recorder years ago, complete failure, with background noise it took as long to transcribe as the session itself. So can we wear ear buds or not?

Can’t say I’ve seen anybody wearing them at the tables. The general rule casinos like to enforce is no “electronics”. Each property may have various policies they enforce. I’ll venture a guess that if you ask a pit boss if you can wear ear buds at the table, the answer will be “no”.

Exactly, unfortunately. Asked a pit boss at IP Biloxi. No how, no way was the response.

And for many of us, that would be a believable story! :mrgreen:

I was at a table in Rivers, Schenectady, and a guy was buying in to play while wearing earbuds. The box told him to take them out. Kind of seemed like they held back his chips until he removed them, but it all happened kind of quickly so really hard to say for sure if that is what they were doing. I was kind of hoping he'd ask why, but he didn't.
