hi dear gambling friends
I am heading Vegas in Christmas time and i would like to know which casinos (strip/ downtown/ off-strip) have STA bet (with the better payout preferably) so i can plan my vacation based on it. i found couple of websites about it but they are all outdated or significantly incomplete. I know it is a sucker bet but we don't have it in Canada and i really want to try it.
Thanks

It is rare that I am stumped by gaming terminology, but for the life of me I can't figure out what the STA bet is?

It's a craps bet offered by some casinos.

Was just in LV, and what I do know is that CET properties and Stevens properties(The D & Golden Gate) offer STA. Forget about trying to find the better payout.

Is it still standard at MGM casinos?
Its - Possessive; It's - "It is" / "It has"; There - Location; Their - Possessive; They're - "They are"

I know the Golden Nugget had it at some point; might be worth a peek if you're on Fremont.

If you call the casino 800 or main number, (the actual property, not their room reservation line) ask to speak to the pit or casino floor, they will nearly all put you through right to the tables. Anyone who answers the phones in the pit will know if they do and won't mind you calling. Hardly anybody outside the pit will be able to tell you. I would suggest you call the places you would most like to play and ask.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I believe Sam's Town had it and at a relatively good payout. I only suggest SamsTown because no matter what place you chose to stay at, SamsTown is relatively convenient to get to.

I agree a call to the pit or atleast to the Director of Table Games will get you a prompt and above all accurate response. Don't ignore a casino's 'twitter stream' also.

Vegas has an indeterminate and unofficial "Dead Week". I've not looked at a calendar this year but during the Christmas season Dead Week it is often possible to get great room rates and great comps. New Years Eve will be expensive of course but hotels and casino hosts offer good deals during Dead Week because otherwise the casinos tend to be .... well, dead! No crowds at all.
