Amazing how a friendly, outgoing, and knowledge employee can add to a casino's bottom line. A shame most bosses are unaware of such a basic fact !


True. Have fun when dealing, it's contagious.

The sad reality is that the casino pit is often a rude place to work because of "da suits."

Hardly an incentive to be a suit, when your underlings take home more money. That's why I turned down management several times at AT&T. That and the fact as Chief Shop Steward I could always start trouble. LOL

Maybe so. But when the floor supervisors start showing up in flip-flops and shorts, that will be it for me ;)

Mew forum member and this is my first time starting a new thread, so I apologize in advance if this has been previously discussed (or already beaten to death). I'm new to Vegas and I'm still checking out some of the off-strip locations, mostly Stations Casinos, as I live in Henderson. Yesterday I decided to stop by the Fiesta Henderson to see what it was all about and noticed that they had a $3 craps table. I bought in for $80 and after a couple of 7-outs I'm down to my last $20 after making a pass line/odds bet on a point of 10. I toss in 4 reds to the base dealer and requested "inside, $6 6 & 8". I'm expecting the dealer to place $6 on the 6-8 and $4 on the 5-9 (or $3 on the 5-9 and toss me $2 change). The dealer places one red on the 5-6-8-9 and promptly requests $2 more for the 6 & 8. I didn't think that I was making the dealer take a calculus exam when I made the bet but now I'm starting to wonder if I'm the problem? I was already a little pissed after running through $50 in 5 minutes and the dealer not being able to figure out that they needed to break one or both of the remaining $5 chips caused me to make a not-so-nice comment regarding the dealer's mental abilities.

Please feel free to beat me up if you feel I'm the problem in this specific instance. I probably deserve it just for admitting that I was at that establishment 😐




It is up to you to watch your money. It may not be right, but it is so.

That said, I play a 3 dollar minimum table sometimes. They don't pay odds on a 3 place inside bet, even money until wager reaches 5 or 6 respectively.

My first thought on your original post [this thread] was, new dealers are lousy mind readers, it takes them a few years to get the hang of knowing what you want without having to tell them.

The dealer could mistakenly of also thought for twenty inside you wanted $6 on the 6&8, with $3 table min. on the 5 and $5 on the 9?

What Petro said. I have very limited experience with limits under $5, but I'm pretty sure Casino Royale took place bets on the 6&8 below $5 and paid even money. Considering the payouts, shouldn't a $3-$4 place on the 5,9 pay even money plus one? I'm not saying that the casino doesn't have the right to require that place bets are above the minimum, but why not offer them since people are actively seeking out the equivalent of a Big6/Big8 bet?

Unfortunately when your playing on a three dollars table, most likely your playing at a breaking house. So it's up to you to learn how to bet the game and watch where your bets are being placed for, one of the thing some of these casinos will also have, is dealers that have been dealing for over 20 years and they never advanced in their profession!

Cheap tables give you some very golden opportunities to make money if you understand the game and how to bet it.

My advice would be to go to the library and check out any book you can on craps, our library system here has excellent selection on anything to do with gamble. Then to go home and practice your betting and learning where your bets are placed on the lay-out!

I sometimes play in outlying casinos around Vegas, living in Vegas is a completely different experience that most players will never experience. Playing craps up to seven days a week you soon learn how to pick out the bad dealers.

For a local player Station Casinos are only a few minutes away, but there is a totally different atmosphere in each one of them, it's up to you to pick which one suits you the best for your style of play!
Note, all my post start with this is just my opinion...! You do good brada ..! superrick Winning comes from knowledge and skill when your betting and not reading fiction http://procraps4u2.myfanforum.org/index.php ...

Dealers hear sh** that doesn't make sense all the time!

"Buy the 6 and 8"

"I want the 6 10 5 4 9 and 8"

"What do the yellow bets pay?" (Hard ways)

"I want a crap jack" (crap check)

"I want a hiyo" (??? Horn high 11, or 11 straight up, or 11&12split???)

And just about any other thing that doesn't make sense. If your bets aren't all the same unit size, tell the dealer "$3 5 and 9, $6 6 and 8". If you say " inside, $6 6&8" I'm gonna expect $2 more dollars, especially if you've been playing reds this whole time.

Although, I have had some bad experiences with dealers there. There must be something about me throwing a $100 on the table and asking for a $24 six & eight...they can't figure that out, and still try to give me an infinite amount of white chips in return!!

Yeah, Fiesta is not your star studded craps resource, unfortunately. Sorry you had a bad experience there.
The guys at GVR or Sunset are much more up to speed but of course, there you won't get $3 craps.

They should have just confirmed your action by asking you the question. They have to do it a million times a day, I don't understand why they would not in your case.

Sometimes dealers are tought to not give change, rather ask for more money. The more money you have booked on the layout, the more the potential winnings for the casino.

It is an old but dirty trick.

Next time, rather lay it out for them in plain old English. I want a $6 6 and 8 and a $3 5 and 9 like RS suggested.

Or, just don't go back to that dump :) (Sorry Dan)

Rick, have you ever played at Red Rock? If so, what do you think of it? If not, what have you heard about it?
