I remember KC, he's the one that flat bet me for a 2:1 spread on their "three rounds heads-up" single deck game when I had a BAC of about 99.5%.

As for craps, I found most of the dealers okay there, except for one guy who was a real burnt-out tip-hustling piece of shit. He was 'hairy looking' (for lack of a better term), had a moustache and wore a ring that resembled a sports championship trophy ring. There's six players on the table, five stiffs and me betting $1 for the crew on the point hard on every hard point, working out to about $20 an hour. So what does the genius do? Work over the five stiffs? Nope, instead he sarcastically comments "Boy, I sure hope we win our one dollar bet" when I'm finally in the middle of a decent hand.

I need a really withering response to make to tip hustlers. It's one of my biggest pet peeves. There is always the talk-to-the-shift-manager route, but I want something more direct.

We just got back from Vegas and noticed that the craps "bubble" game is all over the place but with very different min bet and max odds. We saw them first where we stayed at Mandalay Bay ($3 Min 2x) and then also at MGM ($5min and 2x) NY NY (not sure of min or odds) Luxor ($2min and 3x) same for Excalibur. Sunset Station ($1min and 5x) We played at Luxor and sunset. Game was a lot of fun and all bets paid correctly. (You could make a $1 $2 bet on six and eight and get paid correctly. Also all buy bets were charged on win only. We also played the electronic hybrid game at Bills. It was $3 min and 3 4 5 odds. Also paid $3 six and eight correctly.

New York New York is $2 minimums with 5x odds. Better than the live craps game.

Call of all your odds and bets. Pass the dice. Explain loudly that nothing kills your luck like a tip hustler. While the next player is resolving the rest of your roll, ask to speak to a shift manager. Explain why you are now going to a new casino to gamble. If he or she asks you "is there anything we can do", say "fire this dealer on the spot, which I know you can't do, but that's what it would take". Explain that the other dealers have been paragons of professionalism. Do so with a firm but not agitated voice, to convince them you are serious but not just some raging nutter.

Was it, by any chance, titled Organic Craps? We have that here in Scottsdale at Casino Arizona.

It is not Organic Craps. It is Shoot to Win Craps by Aruze.

I had my first encounter with the "bubble craps" in NY NY this past July and I couldn't find it in any of the other casinos. As stated previously, it was a $2 min and it was an absolute blast. The ability to bet any amount on place bets and actually be paid in change ($1 place bet on 6/8 pays $1.17) was awesome. The only downside was that you could not insert your players card into the machine at NY NY and therefore, could not make any comps. I know the comp system would be minimal if they had any, but does anyone know if any of these "bubble craps" machines that are apparently all around take players cards to earn meager comps?

I'm so happy to hear that these things are spreading. Hopefully they find their way to the east coast to hold me over until my next vegas trip.

The machine at the Palms earns points. I'd imagine not for long.
