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


Sonny44, I play it all the casinos in and around Vegas that have craps tables, Every Station Casino has a totally different clientele, the reason for this is very simple, they inherit the players from around where the casino is located.

Fiesta Casino and Green Valley are only about 5 miles apart if that. And the casinos are like night and day. Green Valley is in a higher-end community, so you have a better clientele going there!

Red Rock Casino, is a step up from Green Valley, only because they import players off strip. For Station Casinos, Red Rock Casino is their high-end casino! So with that said it all depends on what you're looking for.

I'm not into playing where the players don't know what they are doing or there is a high turnover of players buying into the game then leaving because they lost everything they had to play with. I play at the off hours of the day and night.

I avoid playing when we have major conventions or shows going on in town. I hate March madness and the beginning part of April, because of all the crazies that come in for sports bet books, that don't know what they're doing on a craps table. So during that time frame I avoid the strip, because these guys will party all night long and then get on a craps table.
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 ...

I have rant of my own, i think people that work at a casino should take a bath.

Last week the dealer in a poker tournament spelled just awful. Last night we were playing craps
and the stick man smelled just like that, me and the guy at SR1 both noticed it, then next stickman came up
and she was ok, then another guy came in and he was just was bad. Two times in a week , it was terrible i have noticed
anything like that since i was in laughlin and the stick lady decided she would rid herself of some excess gas.


Take a bath that is my rant.

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?



Noted... I assumed when I stated "inside, $6 6-8" that the dealer would realize that he needed to break at least one of the $5 chips to make the two $6 bets, leaving $8 (1 red/3 white or 8 white chips for the 5-9 place bets. I will try to do a better job of communicating next time and refrain from losing my patience because the dice aren't running very hot.

In hindsight, I probably should have switched to playing the Don't instead of throwing more money away making a pass line/place bet or just walked away from the table with the $20 after the back-to-back point/7out rolls.

I was at Harrah's Laughlin last night. Was the sticklady about 55-60 with blonde hair? I experienced a similar event and assumed that it was the old guy on my left that dropped ass and not the sticklady to my right.

Sgit,

That part I mentioned about watching your own money is from personal experience. I wonder how much money I left out there that got swept away because I had more bets out than I could keep track of? Now that I'm a lot more aware I catch them all the time trying to misplace or incorrectly make payouts. It's almost comical, even what you perceive to be experienced dealers, stuff happens.

That was my main point in playing devils advocate. How many times have you heard a player asking the dealer how much or where they had wagers? I still slip once in a while, but certainly not often.

I think if a player is playing that low of stakes where the difference between a winning or losing session can be $3, it's critical to keep track [always is]. If the player is going green or black or higher there is room to regress after a win and still have a winning session. Where as if playing minimum stakes and not winning any odds it's like going one for one against the house, that even takes away any hope for variance to put the player ahead [hope that makes sense].

end of ramble

I would suspect that in Laughlin dice crews have to steal their own soap and pay for showers. Then deal dice to largely the Geritol Set not particularly famous for being great tippers in general, much less in gambling. And some of the crew may get bused in from Vegas motels anyway.

Its not an easy life to be a dice dealer if you work in grind joints wherein tipping is an archaic behavior involving voluntary over paying.

So what you are saying is that the guy couldn't spell properly? Which words could he not spell? Rake, pot, all in?? :)
