Does it have some of the same problems as Rapid Craps?

Specifically, paying wins and taking the bet down. Or when you don't have a line bet up, pressing the inside, outside or across button and having it not place the point?

Yes.
Place bets do not come down after a win.
Only self service bets come down, even tho all bets are self service on the machine.

But STWCraps has NO across, inside, outside buttons for place bets.
You have to go from one screen to another. That really sucks with the 20 second countdown.

I emailed them twice on that one and they said they would forward my suggestion...probably to the trash.
I mentioned to them also that SM Rapid Craps had that ability.

They probably looked around and saw 1 world-wide install with Rapid Craps and again threw my suggestion in the trash.

Trash night for me.

The experienced player's problem probably had less to do with his computer comfort level and more to do with the needlessly confusing GUI (graphical user interface) on Shoot To Win. A lot of people who are uncomfortable with computers have no problems playing complex slot games.

Shoot To Win is a great game, but Azure really should to improve its GUI before it's too late (as should ShuffleMaster with Rapid Craps).



Yes, I concur. In fact in this case he wanted to wager several place bets (i.e. 32 across) and there is no easy way to do this fast.

It takes practice because once you touch a number this screen pops up.

To select another number one can or should use the small links on the ends of the CLOSE row
(5 and 8 in the photo)
instead of closing the screen and touching another number

And, No way to press a bet except by adding to it.
No way to take a $12 bet down to $6 unless you drag the total down and place a $5 and a $1 chip. This takes time..
or one can touch the chip, press cancel and place the new amount. Sometimes that does not work.
It is a touch screen.

It is a royal pain for place bettors.


The company could have easily done a better job with Shoot to Win Craps.
But, they are Asian owned and most Asians know very little about how the US plays Craps.
Maybe they ran out of $$$ in development and did not ask any real craps players or got their overall idea from the WoO site and game.

These are all over Las Vegas. My wife calls it "Fuzzy Dice Craps" but it more reminds me of that Price is Right game where the player rolls a dice to win a car and guesses O/U the roll. Did the game give points? Red Rock no longer pays points on the machine but other Stations still pay the $4=1 point.



Where?

I know the Rivera has one, and at Gold Strike.

I love bubble craps. I like to sit down. I like to get paid odds on a $1 place bet, I like to be able to lay $2.

The interface does take some getting used to - but if it were easy, I wouldn't have anything to do in those 20 sec you wait for each roll. The way it is now, I have to frantically move my bets around to beat the buzzer - it makes the game move quicker.

GVR=Green Valley Ranch. It's off the 215 at Green Valley Parkway, near The District open-air shopping mall.

I've played it at a bunch of places. Santa Fe Station might be the best. Palms is a good place to play, too.

riveria has both the highest odds (5x) + highest table limit ($500). (but no rewards points.)
i dont know of any other 'shoot to win' casino w/both those.
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)
