If you were to add up the time the movie spends on each dream, it probably wouldn't come very close to fitting the "factor of 12" rule. However, I think the movie did a reasonable job of conveying the idea that time moved more slowly each time the characters went to a deeper level.
Well they thought they had vastly more time but the subjects "dream immune system" forced them to speed things up and think on their feet. They would've had the years they thought they had the immune system would've been right on their asses the whole time making that almost impossible to drag out.

specifically how Arthur's loaded dice work is secret,
Obviously the dice is loaded so that only one, specific, number comes up when the dice is rolled and only Arthur knows what that number is. Not sure how Ellen's decapitated King would work.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
