The wizardofmacau dotcom website has Macau's current craps conditions circa 2009. I wonder if anyone knows of a current source of such info. Thanks.

MGM have only one craps table now, and Wynn seems to have removed the one they had.
MGM have min 100HKD bet (200 in weekends)

Each of the Sands China properties has a table.

Was in Macau 1 night on Monday. Pretty slow, felt like Vegas the week before x-mas. Didn't make it through Venetian or Parisian, but wandered through City of Dreams, Wynn Palace and Himalaya Casino (also a Sands property, across the street from the Venetian).

Observations: Seems like all the casino I went through were smoke free with smoke rooms nearby.
More than half of the people standing on the rail were not betting.
City of Dreams: 1 craps table, minimum $100HKD, 5x odds
Himalaya Casino: 1 craps table, $200min. Unsure of odds.
Wynn Palace: Didn't find a craps table, although wasn't looking.

I think I saw a craps machine in every casino min line bet is $50HKD, 5x odds.

My play: Not a high roller by any means. Did double my money ~$2000 HKD, half on the machine and half on live craps.

Been in Macau and never enjoyed playing their. They are very serious like its a world war 3. Game rooms don't have the feeling of a Vegas style atmosphere.

You won't find Vegas type of atmosphere at the craps tables in Manila either.

Regarding Wynn Palace, I recently attempted to find out if they had craps and the general consensus was no, they don't.

I've not updated my information about Sands Marina Bay in Singapore.

For craps, for me, it's Manila. At least three properties have craps games and they are friendly enough. I didn't notice any magnets or other important matters. They were a bit rough about hitting the back wall at Solitaire, to the point of calling no roll. Never any issues at City of Dreams and Resorts World has a partition in the center which has to be cleared. Sorry to digress...Cheers mate.

Hi NokTang! Can you provide more details about this "partition"? Where is it located? What do they do about aged or disabled players who may not have the arm strength to consistently clear it?

Hello...Welcome to SEA...

The partition referred to was at Resorts World, located across from the airport cluster*&^%. This casino has three floors of action, one craps table on each floor. I played on the second floor. I didn't see the tables on the other floors but assume the same. The third floor is the high limit floor but I don't know the craps min..

Directly in front of the stickman there was a plexiglass partition, about 16 inches high and an inch thick, going forward toward the boxman, tapering off to about six inches as it reached the other side of the table. Both dice had to clear it for the roll to be in action. There were many occasions when the dice didn't clear it, one or both die. I don't think it's a matter of arm strength. As I mentioned elsewhere, in SEA the tables have stools, actually with backs. The player next to me was confined to a wheelchair and had no issues clearing the partition from the last seat on the end. Dice aren't heavy as you know. There was one disputed roll involving the dice landing cocked(one die) on players chips. They refused to count the roll despite shouts in both Tagalog and English. I screamed "melting ice" and they looked at me in a daze asking what the hell was I talking about? "we have our rules and procedures"

I may have mentioned, there is no tipping in Resorts World. I was told it was a Malaysian(Genting) owners decision as he(one of the big shots) walked through the casino. They had recently caught a craps boxman stealing chips, cupping the chips and putting them in his shoe! It was considered a face issue to the Malaysian's and I got the impression sort of a payback. I don't know.

The cock fights were simulcast as an OTB from the following site: www.manilacockers.com click on the livestream if interested...It appears about 10,000.USD bet on each cock fight.

Kind regards and God Bless You. OO.
