A few years ago I had a friend go out to Vegas with me. He wanted to learn craps so I took him to Jokers Wild $1 table. That is gone from what I can tell. Where is the cheapest craps in Vegas now? I know it will be off strip and off Freemont but is there any $5 games at like Texas Station etc

I have no personal experience with this, but have read in another forum that $5 craps can be had a majority of time at Ellis Island, Southpoint, and Oyo.

Ellis Island is your best bet. Buy in $200 and play for an hour. Get a nice steak comped.

The steak is mediocre, and they charge for refills of the rootbeer. I prefer their BBQ plate much more.

The steak dinner is great for the price. When I gambled a lot at the Village Pubs (owned by Ellis), I would order a dozen of the filet cut sirloins Rare and take them home and have friends over for a BBQ and I finished them on the grill. With the potato and garlic green beans it was a great free meal for 12.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

We'll have to agree to disagree. I've never understood the appeal of it. For a buck or two more, you can get the BBQ platter. Any place in Vegas that charges for refills of soda sux.

Billy, Ribs at Ellis is also great but sometimes u like a change of scenery. And I think they have 2 steaks available. The New York is great but for 11pm to 11am. For that price and the ease /generous comp, no one can beat it. $5-$300 craps. Oh yea!!!!!

Don't they make their own rootbeer? It's common to charge for refills in that situation.

I've seen $5 at Ellis Island and Southpoint. Plaza has it on slow weekday mornings. Downtown Grand as well.

Yep. Ellis Island brews root beer (and beer) themselves. But I recall that the RB used to be free refills. If that痴 true, it ain稚 true no more.

I also think the craps was $10 when I was there in October, but I could be wrong about that too.

Downtown Grand had $5 craps in October. That much I知 sure about.

I壇 also bet that most (all?) locals casinos that have craps, have them at $5 minimums.

Railroad Pass used to have $1 Craps, but I don't know if that's true anymore. If I can remember, I will try to call them later for you.

Saves me a phone call; thank you! They should update their website as it still has hours for Table Games on it.

Take a look at

https://www.casinoquest.biz/
https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g45963-d19467704-Reviews-Casino_Quest-Las_Vegas_Nevada.html

I've never done this myself, but when I've read about it before, it actually sounds like a great, cheap way to get comfortable with how the game flows.

Do your own research if it sounds interesting.
