   (1)  In Craps, by a boxperson or stickperson.

   (2)  In Mini-Craps, by the dealer, stickperson or floorperson.

 (b)  In the event either or both of the dice do not land flat on the table (for example, one edge of the die is resting cocked on a stack of chips), the side directly opposite the side that is resting on the chips or other object shall be considered uppermost or skyward. If more than one side of a die is resting on a stack of chips or other object, the roll shall be void and the dice shall be rethrown.
