Axis Power Craps Certified Coaches

Axis Power Craps was founded by Steve “Heavy” Haltom in 2001 and has operated continuously for over 20 years, on the cutting edge of dice control research and development. Axis Power Craps marries the best, proven toss techniques with the appropriate mathematically proven betting strategies to help losers stop the bleeding and become winners. Heavy’s 50 plus years of experience and his encyclopedic knowledge of the game shines through in every private lesson and seminar. Through the years he’s trained and taught with some of the biggest names in the business, but when it came time to expand Axis Power Craps and add additional coaches to carry the brand forward there were just a few that made the cut. Each of these individuals is fully qualified and authorized to book private classes in the Axis Power Craps method of Dice Control. They come with Heavy’s highest recommendation. Here is the list, along with links to their own pages here on the website and their contact information:

  • Nate “DarthNater” Fernandez. Nate has been Heavy’s primary coaching partner in Las Vegas since 2017, and stepped in to fill that roll in seminars in Biloxi after the casinos reopened from the State-imposed Covid shut-down in Mississippi in 2020. Nate’s craps career stretches back almost thirty years, and he’s studied dice influence in literally dozes of classes under both Heavy and Las Vegas dice coach Beau Parker over the last twenty years. Nate is proficient at both sides of the game, but is one of the foremost Dark Side experts in the industry. He is also one of the authors of the Extended Version of BoneTracker and is partially responsible for integrating the Coaster Charts into BoneTracker and bringing it to the public. Nate teaches private basic craps lessons, dice control classes, advanced betting strategy classes including Don’t play, and basic and advanced BoneTracker classes at his home in Henderson, Nevada, just thirty minutes South of Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd. For more information on classes you can reach Nate by email at
  • Mark “220 Inside” Evangelisto: Mark took his first Axis Power Craps class in 2017. He immediately signed up for the following class, then purchased an Axis Power Craps “Golden Ticket” that gave him three classes for the price of two the following year. His dedication to both training and practice quickly showed up at the casino tables, where his ability to bang out long hands loaded with Nines and Tens became something of a legend. It wasn’t long before Mark was being invited to help out as an intern coach, then a full-fledged Assistant Coach at classes around the country. Recently he’s become known as the shooter to beat on the weekly “Fantasy Craps” program on YouTube, where he routinely tosses 40 – 60 roll hands, crushing the competition. Mark is the other half of the team that developed the Version of BoneTracker and is partially responsible for integrating the Coaster Charts into BoneTracker and bringing it to the public. He’s available to teach basic craps play, dice control, basic and advanced betting strategies, and basic and advanced BoneTracker sessions in his home in Carver, Massachusetts.

  • Ed “Parson” Robinson: Ed Robinson first discovered casino craps on a ski trip to Lake Tahoe in 1993, when he played an eighteen hour session at the tables. He joined Axis Power Craps in 2019, first signing up for a class in Tunica, Mississippi. That class was cancelled when the Tunica casino dealer went out of business, so Ed signed up for a different class in Vegas. This gave him two paid-for classes, and since Axis Power Craps was offering a Golden Ticket promotion where you received three classes for the price of two – we went ahead and threw in a third class at no charge. From the first class, Ed was one of those students who took 100% of what he learned in class back to the practice table at home and applied it. By the time his second class rolled around – he scarcely needed it. By the time he showed up for his third class he was ready to show others how it was done. Today Ed’s specialty is knocking out All-Tall-Small Bonus Bet wins, often winning two-a-day on casino trips. His longest hand to date, according to the pit boss who was clocking him, was 90 minutes – roughly 66 rolls. His “Roll2Win” Channel on YouTube is one of the best craps channels out there content-wise. “Parson” is our “craps chaplain” and we’re glad to have him on our team of Axis Power Craps Certified Coaches this year. Ed is available to teach basic craps, dice control, basic and advanced betting strategies, and will customize classes for your needs at his craps pit in Birmingham, Alabama. Currently he limits class size to three students, but prefers to teach one-on one or couples classes, and is only available on weekends. You can reach Ed by email at
