Budget is $1000 and the goal is at least 2 or 3 hours of continuous play over the course of 3 days, so roughly 6 or more hours of game play. Table limits are in the $10 to $15 range per hand/bet. Cheapest progressive slot I believe is $5 a spin, but they have penny slots for regular slots.

If I left out any parameters let me know. User has intermediate knowledge of all games, with better knowledge in UTH, VP, and Roulette.

Edit: Oops I should have broke down Light side vs Dark side on Craps poll question... oh well.

Craps, either Pass Line or Don't Pass. In 6-9 total hours of play, you will almost certainly not lose $1,000 betting $10 every single round without deviating at all. It's all but impossible.

What's your win goal?
If you have 4 $250 sessions, will you double your $250 or go bust on them?

What is the goal?

Play for enjoyment?
Play for win?
Play for comps/points?
May the cards fall in your favor.

The goal stated in the OP was to play 2-3 hours per day over three days without busting out. The probability of busting out in that amount of time playing Craps at $10 bets with a $1,000 bankroll and NOT taking/laying odds is virtually zero.

Goals: Play for 6-9 hours playing some type of 'fun' casino game. Obviously fun is super subjective but lets say "wins frequently enough to get that mini adrenaline rush / dopamine hit from winning."

I feel like people have done the research enough on how to maximize comps? At least depending on the casino. This is a Caesar's property if that matters.

Personally, I would play Pai Gow Poker. Its slow, the volatility is low because there are so many ties, and its a highly social game with players chatting with each other. Also, it does have a mental component to it - its not 3-Card poker.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Id play craps, but Id also lay small odds. Maybe 1x. So $10 line bet, 1x odds. Reduces tje house edge slightly, but doesnt over use small bankroll. Youd still have a hard time busting out in that short of time.

Playing for comps would probably require a certain average bet and a bit longer playtime, thus the basis of the question.

Sounds like UTH is a favorite, maybe you win, maybe you get a comp. Should be a fine choice for the bankroll/duration.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Never buy or lay on anything? Sounds interesting, definitely would be a very long run unless it's an incredibly choppy table.
