"In fact, when there was discussion on the Internet about a shooter winning 3-million dollars on a hand (I think it was back in December) and I asked an exec at Caesars to confirm, his response was "people win that kind of money every day here."

I guess it's a stupid question, but it's a Saturday morning... Do people really win(and lose) that kind of money on one roll(pass line and numbers) every day at Caesars and perhaps other high limit tables around town? I've always thought it was a myth based upon my own experiences and observations. Baccarat another story of course and if talking about one shoe.

But at craps? The largest I've every seen was a guy at Binions about fifteen years ago, private table as in no one else allowed to play but in the casino near the cage, and only betting with $10,000.usd chips. He didn't lose or win a lot of money during the time I watched.

Another recent story I read on here, a guy wagered $25.usd on twelve 30 tosses in a row, then left. Immediately after this shocking loss, the poster threw three twelves in a row! It's a strange world out there. Be careful! I love gambling stories when they are true but when fiction gets mixed in I get sort of depressed or shall we say, disoriented and confused.

So, back to it...what sort of wins/losses in one hand have you actually witnessed?

The largest buy-in I have seen at Caesars was about $250K maybe a little more. The player was all show though. Had half of a regular table roped off for him all day, even when he wasn't playing. When I saw him he came down with a blonde on each arm and held court at the table for about 15 minutes with his entourage and was only betting blacks and greens.

The largest real action I ever saw at Caesars in the public casino was roulette. The asian player had the table to himself and was putting about $100K a spin out on the numbers. He would often win a million on 1 spin. He was playing for several hours and believe his chips were gone when he left but I didn't watch him most of the time.

I also watched a lady playing a whole carousel of $100 slots more as less a fast as she could. She was playing when I came down in the morning and still playing when I went to bed that night. That was likely a serious loss.

NokTang why don't you hang out at Caesars on a weekend instead of Binions and see for yourself.

Keep an eye out for a cursed craps table that rolls a lot of nines.

Here's a story about a high roller at Caesars with more than two million in markers, playing the don't, who tipped the shooters at the $10 table a thousand dollars each if they sevened out. I posted this online years ago, in this archived thread:

I read your question again, Noktang. A "hand" is not a single roll of the dice, but a shooter's turn with the dice. You might have a "good hand" and make five different passes, or you might have a "bad hand" and do a point-sevenout.

I hope you didn't think a "hand" meant a single throw.

Hi Alan. Yes, I know a "hand" means one shooter who perhaps makes several points and holds the dice for a while. That's why I mentioned placing the points.

Regarding your terse, wicked, and vial and childlike suggestion I hang out at Caesars instead of Binions I can only refer you to the obvious..I live in Bangkok Thailand so not as easy as you "suggest". That said, my Binions' reference was in the late 1990's when it was a large place with a lot of craps tables(including the converted Mint) and 100times odds. If you need a point of reference, I was a guest of the young Binion, he was my host. The nephew. His name if I recall was "Bobby Fexer".

even in the 1990s ... maybe even moreso than today... Caesars had $100 tables operating in the Palace casino.

So why are you questioning whether there are high rollers at Caesars? If any casino in Vegas is known for its high rollers at craps, it's Caesars.

Granted, Caesars isn't what it used to be. You can find plenty of $10 tables there now, even on Saturday nights and holiday weekends. They even let low rollers like me in to play.
