Is there a list of casinos offering the firebet?

I didnt see anything on the Shufflemaster website (they own it now), and I did see a press release from Station Casinos that all of their properties added it.

Any others in Vegas?

I thought all of the Harrah's / Caesar's properties offered it.

I'm working to launch a project that provides both casino and certain table game information, although the degree of table game information will likely be dependent on the manufacturers- some of which have pledged support while others have yet to do so. In the long-term, hopefully our resource will be comprehensive, but time will tell.
Lack of prior planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

Good, hope you list All, Tall & Small, which I find to be a better, more fun bet.

Thanks for the list. When did Bellagio and Mandalay add the Fire Bet?

I first started playing it at Rio years ago, then at Caesars.

Really nice list, Aaron. What does five- and seven-diamond mean?

I really miss 100x odds at Eastside Cannery. That was such a good game, in a nice room with good dealers. Impossible to find in Vegas nowadays.

Golden Gate is 10x odds. I just played there.

Riviera got rid of 1000x odds. They are just 10x now. (Which isn't bad, but the only reason to play at the Riv was the 1000x odds...)

ElCortez is $3-$5, 10x, triple field, and they have halves but no quarters. Generally much better dealers than you would expect at a break-in joint. Can't say much about the other players, though...

Sam's is $3 24/7 with 20x odds. Best deal in town besides Joker's.

Rampart also got rid of 100x odds and is 10x or 20x now, can't remember.

Suncoast is $5 almost always (rarely $3) with 5x odds.

By the way, I rolled aces three times consecutively for the second time in my craps career the other day downtown. (First was at the Tuscany where a guy DID chip up his hi-lo). I yelled out "PARLAY ALL HORN BETS" after the second aces but nobody listened... :) I will be hiring out my services to all horn players after I get it verified that I can throw more aces than normal people ... ;)

5 diamond (Paulson):



7 diamond (generic):



Not all 5-diamond are Paulson necessarily, but these are the only two types I have seen.

I really would like to characterize more details on the tables, this is just one that I noticed that other people haven't kept track of.
