Do you think someone is trying to avoid paying fees to the owner of Bonus Craps?

    Yes. It's my amateur legal opinion that the Bilski decision states that non-tangible ideas like a casino game can't be patented. The name of the game can be protected, but as I understand it, there is nothing to stop someone from copying a game exactly, as long as it doesn't have proprietary equipment, as long as you change the name.

    This topic has been discussed before.
    It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

    Red Rock Casino, part of Stations Casinos, has replaced Bonus Craps with something called Dice *****.

    Frankly I couldn't read the graphic on the tables so I wrote Dice *****. I will tell you this: this side bet has the same rules and the same payout as Bonus Craps.

    All of the craps layouts have been changed.

    Probably. Unfortunately, entire games have been essentially copycatted within the last several years...not just side bets.

    So I shouldn't bother with my side bet idea for Craps?

    Make all the extremes buy bets on all crap games!
