Hit two 5 point fire bets on the craps table (250:1) and I also hit a 6 card flush w/5 card straight flush on High Card Flush with $10 bets and $1 tokes for the dealer. Walked out almost +$3000 for the night. First time I've had that big of a win that didn't involve a video poker machine.

Nice!

Sweet!!! Which numbers eluded the shooter? Same shooter both times, or two different ones? I'm assuming one of them wasn't you, otherwise you would have told us more about it. 250:1 for five points is a good paytable; casino where I usually go pays 125:1 for 5 points and 300:1 for all 6, I think. It's not in Nevada, though...

They probably also begin paying out on 3 points, whereas at GVR they only start paying out on 4 points.

I was the shooter for the first one. Needed a nine for the whole enchilada, but never could establish nine as the point. Started out at $27 across and I think I ended up at around $300 across by the time seven-out came. Hit a bunch of hardways and a couple of hop bets during the process and the dealers made a ton with all of the two-ways that hit. After 7 out came, next shooter immediately came out with nine as the point and made it 😔

The second one was two shooters later, so the dice stayed on my side of the table for about two and a half hours. Needed a ten to make the cycle for that one, but never could establish ten as the point. I'm guessing that the dealers dropped somewhere between $500-$1000 in tokes during the 3 hours that the dice stayed on my side of the table.
