Is Bubble Craps Taking Over? With the invention of bubble craps just how many of these machines are out there? Some of the dealers are starting to wonder how long will it be before these machines take over!

I say that there are not too many of them in the bigger casinos but they may be in the smaller ones. So because I only know about some of the machines that I see around Vegas which of the two type of machine do you have in your casinos and where are they at? I hate the Shoot to Win one but could put up with the Interblock machine. The damn voice in the Shoot to Win one is just annoying and drives me nuts I can't stand to listen to it!
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 ...

Many of the strip casinos have both brands.

Bubbles may actually be good for the game because many beginners are too intimidated to play at real tables right away.

You can play video Blackjack on game kings. Idk what they're technically called but they have half-circle BJ machines I and others call "big tit blackjack" machines where there's a video of a real chick on loop and another that's anime or something.

That being said, Blackjack is still being played on tables and I don't see it going anywhere. People like to play at real tables with real chips with real cards / dice. Plus, there's an inherent mistrust between the public and machines. You can say the odds are the exact same and all that a million times but they'll swear by it the machines are gaffed.

I just see these machines as a bonus or alternate way to play. It's good for the beginner because they can't really f*** anything up and it's far less intimidating than any real table game. Plus, they're typically very low limits ($1 or $2 min) and are great for people in groups (you frequently see one or 2 playing with a big group around all hollering about the $3 win).


I think they're more popular in big casinos that get lots of traffic and can afford it. I don't imagine the machines to be cheap. A small casino isn't going to be able to afford such a machine, especially when most players there (which is few, compared to a big casino) would rather play real craps on a real table. Same reason why some small casinos don't have pai gow or tiles, bacarrat, or many carnival games (maybe three card, but no MS, high 4 card flush, UTH, etc)....just not enough demand and too expensive.

Nothing beats the feel of actually throwing the dice. The dealers can easily be replaced by having terminals to place your bets and then all you need is a stick man to pass you the dice and to record the outcome of the roll.

Most the smaller casino have this kind of machine. I saves them on manpower but gives them good profit. The machine is also very attractive to beginners who don't want to play the real table game.

In many jurisdictions, those machines are categorized as slot machines and taxed accordingly.

That may affect their desirability to the casino.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

yup.. my local casino switched from Organic Craps/baccarat completely automated machines to live dealers but same computer terminals.
this was after the state changed the gambling laws from slots only to allowing table games.

so 3 dealers for a combined seating of 60 terminals:

-2 bac dealers: one red deck, one blue deck
you choose which deck you want to play. the dealers deal at the same time from separate decks.
-1 craps dealer: the players throws the dice

gone is the automated card dealer with robotic arm, and the bouncing dice machine. :(

since it's real dealers, it considered a table game and taxed MUCH lower

In states like Flordia, where they are not allowed live craps, these craps bubble machines are the only option for craps. I dont trust them one bit as Im very confident that they have magnets in them to manipulate the dice. Stay away.

I like bubbles/Organic craps because odds count towards points at my local casino.

it was $2 coin-in per point, just like vp.
at the end of the year, I was SHOCKED that I had 500k points. ($1M coin-in)
and if this was caesars, I would have been 7star. but at this casino, 500k points is just the 2nd highest tier (ie: Diamond).

then next year, they changed it to $4 coin-in = 1 point so I stopped playing a lot and went to the poker room instead.

I did $1M coin-in at Organic craps.
at the end of the year, $6k profit.

did both pass and don't pass, depending on how I felt that day.
managed to win big at both.
ie: Placing $25 each on the 6 and 8, and pressing both to $500.
forgot how much I pressed the Don't but flat + odds = 4 figures. (I only play 1 # at a time for Don't pass.)

yeah, there were also days where i lost my $1000 bankroll.
but positive variance was with me and I had more days winning 4 figures than losing that
