As @meltzvegas noted yesterday, Cromwell now has 100x craps odds up to $5k. Last night they had $5 table. Other Caesars still 3-4-5x.

That's crazy. Can someone confirm?

Regarding the $5 table, I'm pretty sure they allow the pit/supervisor to change the min at will and they will not grandfather. I was playing at a $10 table, was informed it would be upped to $15, but nothing happened after 15 minutes and we were told that she (looked/pointed at pit/supervisor) changed her mind. People should not be thinking that they're going to turn into a Casino Royale, those minimums will be $15-25 as soon as they fill up.

I'm the one linked to in the tweet. I was coming here to post the news.

There was some discussion on Twitter about it yesterday so I went there and the other Caesars down there around 11pm last night. Cromwell had a $5 and $10 table open. The max odds are $5,000. I can't comment on raising limits and grandfathering. I believe Casino Royale caps odds at $500.

All of the other Caesars I went in were 3-4-5x so this is exclusive to Cromwell. The company must want to get gaming up at Cromwell. It has several $15 3-2 blackjack games in the front with surrender/DA/DAS and others in the back. I suspect those go down to $10 during the day. The split may be 50/50 with 6-5. They also have the standard CET $100 S17 game in high limit.

NSUD, 9/7/4 TDB and 9/6 JOB are available among other 99.5% games in quarters but TR is $50 = 1pt. Those machines are towards Flamingo from the craps table. Nobody was playing them last night.

Great development. I hope it lasts for a while.

They may be trying to drive big action to the Cromwell. I saw a little bit of that last time I was there; not much. Saw a guy take $200 up to $10k+ on craps.

Will they ever pay triple the 12 on the field, too?

I don't know who makes the rules & stuff.....but maybe if the Cromwell sees more action relative to what they expect vs their other Caesars properties....as a whole, Caesars may wise up and think it'd be better to offer better games with better rules, etc etc.

$10 3:2 BJ w/ LS, 99.5%+ quarter VP, 100x odds on slots.....it really doesn't get any better than that!

Maybe we should all push some heavy action through there, so Cromwell looks good, making other properties re-evaluate their shitty games and put some better games in.

I've always been surprised at how little action cromwell seems to get. It's right there on the strip (great atmosphere) and the dealers are above average.

Thanks for reporting this, I'll make sure to give them some action if it's still around in a month.

Moved this from a generic thread about 100x odds and why Cromwell would offer it; seems more pertinent here.

I think CET has that kind of action available to them routinely, assuming the guys with the money will place the bet. I've played Harrah's LV craps 3x now, and twice there were one or more 7stars throwing purple ($500) on the field (!) on $10 tables. If they can do that, they can definitely take max odds if they're offered. And I kind of assume, with no info to back it up, that those bettors are the ones being targeted with the Cromwell's changing that.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
