On Boulder Highway, The Longhorn (a REAL dive) right by Sam's Town and Cannery-East has many tables of $2 BJ.
Also on Boulder Highway further down, Joker's Wild: $3 everything, and $2 Three-card poker. Gotta love it.


I kinda like the Longhorn and its no-nonsense seediness, though it's been awhile since I've been there (February '10). I'm not sure what the definition of "many" is, but I don't think the 'Horn has it - the last time I was there, there were EXACTLY four blackjack tables, of which exactly ONE was in use. They could've expanded, but I kinda doubt it. There's a chance I'll make it there on my trip next week.

Fiesta Henderson has $3 BJ (a continuous shuffler), $5 commission-free Pai Gow poker ("The Excellent Game") as well as:
$3 craps with 10x odds - with 3:1 on the Field, AND put bets, and 31-for-1, 16-for-1 prop bets - AND automatic buys on the 4 and 10 at $10 and above;
Talk about a great value crap game. One dealer there is particularly friendly and engaging, but will vent about you shot-takers elsewhere....


Oh great, someone who wants to talk about me behind my back to other customers? Scratch that casino off my list.

I would say most of them talk behind your back. They talk about me for not tipping and I do my very best to keep them talking.

The cheaper/dirtier/further away from the strip the casino, the cheaper the game -- that's a good rule of thumb.
Well, my recent sojourn in a Florida casino showed that the five dollar 6:5 section was noisy, crowded and rather unpleasant while the 3:2, higher minimum section was calm and quieter. So I don't know if there is all that much advantage to seeking out cheap games.

No dealer would ever talk about any non-descript, unnoteworthy, and average Joe tourist player simply for not tipping.
This would be like reading off the Chicago Phone book, while on break.
Away from the players, dealers talk about sports, money, their cars, their families, their hopes for better jobs, their children, movies they've seen, books they've read, etc. The things that are important to them in their lives.
We notice only the good tippers, the interesting people, the regular players, and the troublesome shot-takers/cheats.
If you're not a good tipper, a troublesome cheater or problem player, or a regular known player, then you aren't remembered or discussed. Should you be?
The invisible and anonymous "every-day Joe" remains invisible and anonymous to us, as he does to everyone else for the most part. Has nothing to do with us being dealers or valets or ticket clerks or cocktail waitresses.
Doesn't mean we treat them badly.
It means he isn't noteworthy or remarkable enough for discussion, after he or we leave the table, even if we remember his face.
Do we remember the people on the bus or train to work?

This is how it works:
1. If you stiff a waiter at a table-serice restaurant, he will remember you and discuss you in a negative way, because you are the exception.
2. If you tip a dealer at a table-service casino, he will remember you and discuss you in a positive way, because you are the exception.
3. If you are Brad Pit or George Cloney, he will remember you and discuss you, because you are Brad Pitt or George Cloney and are an exception.

Hate to break it to you, but people in the service industry talk about others ALL the time. This isn't because of being disrespectful, it's just sometimes we get great stories from those we've helped in the past. Realize also it's not always negative; I've told some great things that my customers have done to others. But those who are rude or trying to bend policies... I won't share details, but I'll tell the story.

By the way, I work in the retail industry... Some of the stories I have about customers would make you laugh quite hard.
