We are heading to Vegas next week. It has been several years. We are hoping we will be able to find a $5 (or lower) table on the Strip. Does anybody know if that exists? Does time of the day matter?

Casino Royale is your best bet. They have $3 craps with 20x odds and If you bet $5, you can do 100X odds. Good luck. Despite the casino being really smokey, it's the best place to play craps low limit in my opinion.

Wow! That place still exists? I had heard that some new casino, Linq, had gobbled up that property. Maybe I am confused with another dive casino. There was one that had beer pong tables in it.

You're thinking of the Irish casino. Yes that Irish casino reopened at the linq. Casino Royale still exists and thriving.

Yes. Now I remember which is which. Casino Royale has (had) an Outback Steakhouse on the 2nd floor and the Irish place had a Burger King (I think) inside.

I also remember the smokeyness of Casino Royale.

Thanks for the tip. Give Roy my best.

While I am on the subject of cheap tables, is $5 Pae Gow to be found anywhere in Vegas? That game has the most optimal Free-Drink-to-Expected-Loss ratio.

I just read on the Casino Royale forum that they are down to just 1 craps table. That sucks.

Is there $5 craps out at the casino fka Sahara? Is it worth the monorail trip?

My OP was limited to the Strip. Let's expand the area. What about Fremont Street? Is there $3 or $5 craps there? Which casino would you recommend?

binions has $3 tables weekday mornings sometimes...they are quick to change it to $5 tho and $10 is most common...IIANM tho you are grandfathered in at $3 or $5...the fremont is famous for their 3 dollar table but it is only 2x odds last couple times i was there....the el cortez frequently has $3 tables 10x odds...and no matter what anyone tells you you can ALWAYS find a $5 table downtown...i have never been to main street station when they didn't have a $5 table---and i play there alot...20x odds too...
