I like hybrid craps for lower limits, but I prefer real chips for when I get out of lower roller mode so I don't inadvertently call the IRS with a $600 or $1200 win on the machines.

I play this game because and only because the table limits are lower[ $5 at the casino I play at]..One thing I don't like is the dont pass is a contract bet on this game. I just don't understand why these casinos all go to 15- 25 dollars I mean you can still make 10- 15 dollar bets on a $5 dollar table AND how many folks bet the table max anyway So this reason that $5 min tables lose money is BS..Thats just casino management justifying there greediness..WHERE IS BENNY BINION WHEN HE'S NEEDED MOST...

They'd rather get one higher roller than a dozen minimum bettors.

I've been doing math all day. My $88 inside (5,9,6,8) bet could progress to $880 inside on a long hand, which is under the $1,000 total bet table max. I'd be winning $3K+ to $6.5K+.

This is essentially the bottom line. Traditional craps table is a modern day business dinosaur. Too many employees to operate the game. I expect to see more of these games open in Vegas.

Thats what I don't like about this game.It is a job killer.I can see it getting VERY popular though..Did you know this game is considered a SLOT MACHINE.. IT is fun though...

In what jurisdictions is it considered a slot machine, or any other sort of "gaming device" (such as a VP machine)? Certainly not in California (where it is considered a "card game") - otherwise they wouldn't need the cards there.

even with a live dealer, it's still considered a slot?
thus w2-g when $1200+ gets returned to you? (payout + ORIGINAL bet!!!)

ie: Place $600 on 8, you win $700 and get your original $600 back.
it would trigger a w2-g because the total you get back at the conclusion of that one roll is over $1200!
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

So far, everywhere else!

Not a 300-1 or larger wager. Payout is only $700 anyway.

Some machines don't count your original wager as part of the win. You have to pay close attention to identify which machines you encounter that don't count your original wager as part of the win.
