Hawaii man's craps table record from 1989 broken

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) — Stanley Fujitake stepped up to the craps table at the California Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on May 28, 1989 with $50 in hand and a golden arm.

Three hours, six minutes and 118 rolls later, Fujitake had set the record for the longest roll. The casino reported losing $1 million that morning.

The 20-year record was broken Saturday by Patricia Demauro of Denville, N.J., who held the dice for four hours, 18 minutes and rolling them 154 times. She did it at the Bogata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, N.J.

Fujitake died in 2000 at the age of 77. His widow, Satsuko Fujitake of Honolulu, says some people have a dice-rolling gift with talented arms, like baseball players.
