Hello....my first post here....thank you Wizard for this and the Odds website...I have learned so much about gambling from them, I can't even tell you. Now to convince my Father on the foolishness of slot machines LOL


My question...I know I've heard of(and seen), electronic versions of card and casino type games, like Blackjack and Roulette, being available at casinos in Vegas and elsewhere...my question is what OTHER games are available via a machine that might have lower bet limits, like a buck or even a quarter. Are there any casinos in Vegas or anywhere that offer Video Baccarat, Video Let It Ride, or Video Craps even?

Anyone with knowledge yay or nay is appreciated...be well, friends.

Mike in Buffalo


ps....I've seen Video Blackjack and Roulette up in a slot parlor in Ontario, but I am not certain it's "true"....I think it's more like a VLT.

If "anywhere" includes Australia, I've seen Video Sic Bo. (Then again, those same casinos don't have Video Poker.)

I would expect to see more Video Roulette and Video Craps in California, considering that the "real thing" is illegal there. (Some casinos do have versions where they do have dice/a wheel, but they use playing cards to determine the actual numbers, but it's just not the same.)

There are also games, in Vegas and elsewhere, that use an actual covered Roulette wheel, and giant dice in a pop-o-matic type set-up, where there is no dealer. No dealer generally means they can afford to have lower minimums, as well as paying exact payouts without rounding (or at least rounded to a penny).
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Thanks! Good info....I am mostly interested in Video Baccarat, and whether it's available at a lower limit.

Pechanga had a video Baccarat a couple years ago, but I don't think it is still there. Video Roulette is a staple of socal casinos, but I have seen video craps only once in CA, at Fantasy Springs.

I worked on a video Caribbean Stud machine in the mid 1990's that had a wide are progressive jackpot. That game flopped.

Video Baccarat? It's probably out there somewhere.

I HAVE seen a mechanical multi-player Baccarat machine using real cards with no dealer. I don't remember where. It might have been at G2E.

In LV there are video versions of:

Craps - $1-$2 min usually
Blackjack - Two different versions with a $1-$5 min depending on where it is.
Let it Ride - Only at LVH I think now as a multi player machine with $5 min. Old Gamemakers still have $.25 min at Fremont, Palace Station, and NYNY. Palace Station also has nickel LIR on Game Makers.
Three Card Poker - LVH has it with $3 min.
Ultimate Texas Holdem - $1 min ante and blind - I think Vegas Club is last install in LV. There is also one in Indian Springs.
Roulette - Just about anywhere, seen it as low as nickel - some 1 player machines are even single zero

I have not seen video baccarat in LV. It seems that the video Pai Gow and Mississippi Stud machines are a thing of the past too. If anyone knows where a video Pai Gow game is now I would love to know.
