They are made by Shufflemaster, however it's a "Vegas Star Gaming" subsidary I believe..
They have one at Black Oak Casino in Sonora, CA. (Actually Toulemne, but close enough)
When I first played it, I absolutely made a KILLING..but then I went back and I got KILLED...just a RNG programmed into it, not much different than an actual dice table.

Yep, they had one at my local for a while: $1 minimum with 3x4x5x odds. I played $1 with max odds every throw and did not have one winning session. Just a complete beatdown.

Then they raised the minimum to $5, so I don't play anymore. That's money I won't be getting back (from that machine, anyway).

Edit: far less entertaining than live craps.

Would you guys who have played video craps say it is more entertaining than live craps or less, overall?

No question live craps is more entertaining.

But if you start looking at the cost of entertainment, I would put the $1 video craps I played as more entertaining than some $1 slot machine.

Now if only we could bring back the days of live quarter craps at the Silver City (I think). And I don't mean quarter as in $25 green chip, I mean actual quarter, i.e. 25 cent chips.

I have never played video craps, but I did see it at a (now-closed) California tribal casino just across the state line from Yuma. I expressed my (perhaps irrational) reservations about this game in this post. I don't think I would find video craps very entertaining though some day I will give Rapid Craps a try.
