I have been looking through the threads, Wiz's sister site, and in general on the web, but can't find any place documenting the best place to play Let It Ride in Las Vegas. I know that the pay tables are probably pretty standard, but if there is a place that does offer better pay tables then I would like to play there.

Thanks

All the stores pretty much use the standard paytable now, and regardless, they don't vary much from a 3.5% baseline house edge. If you are looking to play a three-card bonus bet, the Borgata in Atlantic City has the best paytable for that at a 2.14% house edge. You might try the Boyd properties in Vegas (Downtown: Main Street, California, Fremont; Off-strip: Gold Coast, Sam's Town, Suncoast, Orleans). You might also try Harrah's, where they might rate you highly. The Let it Ride machines are scattered around and offer low minimums and I think the best paytables. Plus, you don't have to tip. Let it Ride is dying out in Vegas. You'll find more of them in Atlantic City.

Play at Bodog for "practice" for a while, and watch as the game just flat out chews your money like a slot machine (even without the button bet). I know that doesn't answer your question, but it might get LIR out of your system before you head to the casino.

Mosca - 11:15 CST, I am starting playing Let it Ride with $25 chips on Bodog "practice". We'll see if I make it to 11:30.

Busted in 10 minutes. 12 hands per minute - 120 hands. Bankroll of 1000, betting 1/40th of bankroll a hand.

I play $5. So I would have lost $200 in 120 hands. In casino, about 30 hands an hour. So it would have taken me 4 hours to get through the bankroll. At no point was I up.

And that's "Let It Ride". One of the worst things that happened to me was that Let It Ride was the first table game I ever played, and I had a decent win. That kept me playing for quite a while before I caught on.
