To the player, bubble craps are more like a table game than slot machine. The dice are random and independent of anything else, and are used to determine the result.

They have no dealer, but use ticket in / ticket out. Does that make them more of a slot machine to you? If so, so be it.

However, whether the casino (or more likely the state) thinks of them as a table game or slot machine can be different in each jurisdiction. Therefore to argue it here, or even to merely discuss it, is pointless.

That classification is important for tax reasons, as well as to step around other restrictions that some jurisdictions may impose. And again, to argue or discuss those points here is pointless.

But again, to the player, the classification is irrelevant.

in Florida you sign for a taxable just like on a slot machine
the same exact thing with interblock baccarat machines as well.
kind of useless in knowing which is which as the machines are what they are
ill go back to the only reason anyone really would care is if they though the outcome was predetermined

ill give an example with 5 dimes on line Casino as why why someone would care
their pai got poker instead of charging commission actually pays above 100 percent, the house edge coming in the case of a tie goes to the house
however that game is not a random deal of the cards and instead the came is set for a return percentage and the game is simply an animation of the result
i.e. you get a 10 high pai gow and win the hand or get a full house and lose
if this is what op is asking, from almost everything I know and speaking to a million techs and even a former casino owner who I am pretty close with, there are no magnets or predetermined results in bubble craps
No longer hiring, don稚 ask because I won稚 hire you either

In Arizona, they are treated like slot machines which means a maximum of $35 spread out on the table. Tried it a couple of times, but didn't like the limited action I was getting. Can make pass line bets as low as $0.50. Offered 3x odds on 4/5/9/10, 2x odds on 6/8.

Gambling has always been (until recently) a human, manual, activity. Even slots of old required pulling the lever. Of course I can't propose outlawing gambling machines, but when the day comes, and I must walk into a machine casino, where everyone is seated at a computer screen, oblivious to everyone else, like w/ smartphones today, I'll not walk into a casino!
