It is hard to find $3 craps. I was at El Cortez last night and they had $3 10x craps. I believe Boulder Station does too. The last time I was in Sam's Town, which was probably close to a year ago, they had $3 20x.
What's the difference between $3 craps and $5 craps? You're talking about a difference in +EV of about 0.02 per bet resolved...
You take the number of rolls per hour and multiply by two dollars. Probably going to be lower tips, cheaper meals and cheaper women as well.Quote: Triplell

Very little difference (see above), but what I like about higher odds multiples is it gives me more flexibility. At a $5 3x4x5x table, with my bankroll I'm at max odds right away and I can expect a lot of variance (usually bad). At a $3 10x table, I can start off with $15 odds, and press to $20, then $30 on a hot roll. That doesn't affect my expected loss, whereas on a 3x4x5x table I'd have to increase my flat bet. I don't like to spread to more than 3 points (trying to be more conservative).Quote: thecesspit
If you are $3 bettor with x10 odds, I don't see much difference between that and playing $5 with x5 odds, but I might be missing something.
