But do I still have to go to Royale for a $5 table?



I was there during March Madness and played $5 tables at the Excalibur and Planet Hollywood.

On a weekend, maybe. Try Flamingo, Quad, or Harrah's first though, if you really want to avoid the CR.

Friday and Saturday night at certain casinos are the only time you might not be able to find a $10 table.

In general, those casinos are:

* Wynn
* Aria
* Palazzo
* Venetian
* Cosmopolitan
* Bellagio

These same casinos during these times will temporarily go down to $10 until they get a single customer, even if it says $25 in many instances.

Approaching a $25 minimum table and hesitating without even asking will often solicit an offer to get grandfathered in at $10 if nobody else is at the table.

I hope this is helpful!



I've definitely experienced this at Caesars Palace. It was a $25 table going dead, they dropped it to $10 and by the time I looked back at the min sign, it was back to $25 again.

Until I got booted out of Bellagio I always saw $10 tables there on weekend nights...

Wow, what did you do to get booted?? (haha...j/k) I barred myself from the Bellagio last summer. Can't stand the (rude) craps dealers on swing there.


That's so weird, I have had great experiences with the swing craps dealers at Bellagio.

I had a rude blackjack dealer at the Bellagio, Dorothy (if I'm spelling her name right). She gave me attitude amd made me feel unwelcomed at the table. I had considered saying something to the casino management about her but I didn't want to get her in trouble. I also had a rude baccarat dealer but that was at the Mirage. I don't remember her name but she was an elderly white woman. Maybe it's a woman thing, women tend to be more bitchier than men.

Thanks again for all the responses. What I actually found on Sunday afternoon at the mirage was $10 and $25 tables. Played some (and had good luck!) at the 10 table. After seeing Love and visiting with friends, I checked out the tables again (at about 2300)and 3 tables were half full but at $15. Watching the action it seemed a large fraction were grandfathered $10 players. I didn't play, I find $15 an awkward limit and didn't feel up to the late night trek to casino royale. My best guess is mirage was prepping to staff down for the night.
