NYNY has it for 3x odds as well. The Palms has either $2 or $3 min with I believe 10x odds and I know Binions has one in the back which is a $1 min but only 2x odds. The nice thing about Binions is that you earn comps at the same rate as slot machines for playing, so you can easily play pass and dont pass, take max evening odds on both, and as soon as a 7 or the point is hit earn comps for every resolved dollar you bet. I saw a guy racking up comp points this way when I was there last week and as soon as I switched to try to earn some points myself, the come out roll came up 12 twice in 4 come outs losing me my pass line and pushing the dont, making it very frustrating.

I hear its spreading all over the south strip but I didn't see any other casinos specifically which have it. I've heard rumors of it being in Riviera but I cannot confirm this myself.

The reason I said "evening odds" is that you can only bet 2x on either pass or don't pass. The machine doesn't let you bet what would pay out to 2x for a dark sider, so you have to be cautious and work out the numbers to ensure a push on your odds bets.

Nice update

Most odds I saw was 2 and 3X.
I did not play STW Craps at all the strip casinos.
Gold Strike in Jean was the only one that I saw and used a players card at 2X.
This thread has some more on Shoot to Win Craps.

FWIW I had a blast playing these machines during my most recent trip and the trip before when I first saw it at NYNY. With a full table and people cheering, it can feel almost like a live action craps table... almost. At 3 AM by yourself with no one else around, it doesn't quite give the same rush.

Good Q
The ones I played ALL took the vig for all buys and lays after a win. NYNY and Gold Strike

I will be in Vegas in 2 weeks.
Guess it is time to really study the rules at every location.

I also noticed that if the max bet was $500, that was it on the Lay bets. NO Laying the 4 for $1,000.

When I played at Binions it did not give me any points at all a few weeks ago, even for line bets. They are also at Riv, but no points anymore. Station will give you points on the flat bets and other wagers, but nothing on the odds. Since the cashback is .3%, you are not going to be able to middle them with points.

got back from sunset station.

$1 min, 5x odds!
but $25max place bets and $250 max combined bets on the table :(

i racked up like 3000 points. so how much is that worth if i cash it in?
and how much is it worth if i use it for their buffet?


Also, does the bellagio give points for their Bubble craps machine?
