That stickman is selling sucker bets in the middle of the table. Or was that your point?

The rush you get while rolling hot cannot be duplicated by VP/Slot machines or even other table games.



Not necessarily.

The glee of being in on a hot roll is eclipsed by the elation caused by a hand pay at your favorite slot.

Ain't that the truth!
There's no bet on a crap table, that with ONE HIT can turn a $1.25 investment into $1000 in a split second (ie: Royal Flush)

And why is that? I look at the hallway between the Cal and MSS and I see all these plaques where people have had monster hour plus rolls. Frequently the same person will have more than one of these in a year. I never seem to last long enough at a craps table to ever see one of these for myself.

Usually it is more than a $1.25 investment by the time you get a Royal.

I would take a hot roll over $1000 VP payout. If you bet a moderate amount you can get the same $1000, plus you make the same $1000 for the folks around you. There ain't no hero's on the VP machines! There are on the craps table. ; )

apparently I play at the worlds worst crap table, because I SELDOM see people make more than $100...I bet moderately, and I like ONCE made $1000...the tables in Reno are just too damn cold.

Part of the issue that I have with the game is the sheer amount it takes to play it. I guess I am greedy, but I want to walk away from the table with 100k or so, you have to be willing to lose some good money if you're going to have a chance at playing at that level. With slots, I'll go blow 5-6K and it's no big deal, but sometimes I hit a 30K or like last time, 80k hit. With craps, I can see myself losing 20-30K easily in a night with no action at all, and it just flat out sucks. I don't like losing 20-30K at a chance at 100K when I can play slots and lose 5-6K and have somewhat of a chance of a decent return. I wish to god I could figure out how to roll the dice, but I just haven't been able to pull it off. At 28 years old, you think I could still learn new tricks, but rolling dice is just not my strong suit.

Well with 20000k as a night session, Im sure you can find someone on this site to teach you how to roll those dice. lol

Hi. First time poster after viewing this site for a little while.

Craps is a bit unique in that not only do you have to have 3 croupiers plus a supervisor as boxman, but the dealers also require special training (at least at the casino I visit the most often, which is Turning Stone on the Oneida property in NY), which makes me think that casinos don't necessarily try to popularize it. Maybe that's why it seems like it's "dying off. I don't see too many craps tables even in the casino, let alone open for play.

As for age seen at the tables, I've seen a decent mix of young and old players, although I do see a "generation gap", as it were, between the two sides of the table (i.e. the younger folk will play on one side, with the older folk on the other). I don't think that's the issue.

Sometimes I will mention the game to passer-byers, and they'll say they think it's tough to understand, which is why they stay away. I do try to help them realize that if they make specific bets, it's an easy game to play. I guess it comes to some people quicker than others.
