I was just wondering if anyone knows if the $3 minimum craps table is always going at Casino Royale? I have heard that the table is always really crowded so on my upcoming trip to Vegas I was planning on trying to get on a table early in the morning (like 6 AM). However, I have been told that Casino Royale does in fact close the $3 craps table very late at night and re-opens it around 8-9 AM. I am just trying to figure out the best time to play with respect to being able to get on the $3 table quickly.
I does occasionally get upped to $5 on weekend nights, but you can always find $3 craps at El Cortez and then you have decent blackjack there as well.
It's been 2 years since this thread was last updated. Does Casino Royale still have $3 craps? I'll be staying in center Strip on a Monday night.
I don't think so.
Hooters has a $3 table "24/7" as their sign proclaims.
It's only one table and the rules are terrible though.
So can I expect $5 craps minimums at Casino Royale? Does the Quad have $5 craps on a Monday night?
Here are my experiences at the $3 table at Casino Royale.
I'm from the Eastern time zone so 6AM Las Vegas time is my 9AM so I'm typically at the $3 table at 6AM Vegas time. From my experience, Monday and Tuesday has the $3 table open at 6AM and there is usually one or two people playing when I arrive. Is that due to the previous night's leftovers? I don't know. Wednesday and Thursday at 6AM the table is usually $5. By about 6:30AM, I typically have the table to myself and I often play the dark side as I'm shooting.
The table seems to shut down typically after I leave at about 7-7:30AM until 10-11AM. When it re-opens it usually does a fairly steady business during the day, but not super crowded. The evenings are busy. I've always managed to squeeze in as long as I'm willing to wait 5-10 minutes for a spot to open up regardless of the time. If you're going with a group of friends then you'd be better to play in the early morning.
I have less experience with Friday to Sunday as my typical trip is Sunday to Thursday.
Be warned that a $3 minimum gets you 20x odds. To get the 100x odds, you must bet a minimum of $5. I believe they're stingy on the field too with 2 to 1 on both 2 and 12.
I just looked at their website and it says 20x odds.
