A few of the dealers made voice that they did not like the game and seemed to purposely slow it down. But other dealers, the majority and most were the female dealers, kept it going at a nice pace



Just a note for the slow dealers at Rapid Craps...you dudes are really missing a great opportunity. There are 2 signs posted at the table about asking about dealer tips. What casino table allows hustling tokes!?! As an ex-dealer myself, just cant think of ANY!

You are not even hustling, just given the chance to explain how to tip for the dealers. A few of the female dealers have it down and make the table fun, come on other rapid craps dealers and get with it!

I noticed that Rapid Craps only had room for 14 players. A regular craps table will accommodate 16 players.



I played at Bill's at the Rapid Craps table and talked with a service tech that was there doing something to a players terminal. He said 6 more terminals could be added to the same size table for a total of 20 players. As an old old man, bring more seats in!

Also the game is still in a trial mode and MANY things need to be approved by Nevada Gaming including ticket in/out, terminal reset after a no-roll situation and so on.

The table would rock when it got hot and numbers were rolling, everyone screaming, high 5s every place and the payouts were fast! sure like the fact you can bet anything at anytime, and press up bets by $1.

I did have to wear my glasses to see the terminal clearly, being old and grey it comes with the territory!

Hey 7winner I was at Rapid Craps last Monday and I remember you talking with that service tech guy. You left the table before a nice 39 roller by a newbie. was cool getting instant payouts.

You are right that the table rocks when a long roll comes around and it seems to happen more at this table than at a regular table. I even had longer rolls than my norm... must be the lack of obstacles on the layout as you roll the dice.

I also asked the service tech a few questions about updating the game and he said only time will tell when it gets full gaming approval.

Players either love or hate the game for different reasons. Add me to the love group.



I was not there on Monday, it was Wednesday night I think. The table was really crowded and the dealers there said the table seems to stay busy except around the dinner hour. I too hope to see more rapid craps tables in more casinos.

I have played at Bill's a few times and you are right about how crowded it gets. It sure is fun to sit down and kick back playing craps while still getting all your bets in. Computer terminals were easy to use and all the newbies had no problem after a few minutes of playing getting the bets down.



I think I mentioned before that one reason I liked RC is that I learned to play craps on mu home computer, therefore I felt a great deal more comfortable placing bets at a computer terminal. Easier to keep track of my bets, too.

I saw some newbies who just couldn't get the hang of it, but many would have had the same trouble at an old fashioned craps table. They didn't know the game or the interface. I had some interface troubles, too, but you do get used to it quickly.

About having to hand money to the dealer, and getting paid in chips, it was explained to me at a rapid roulette table once. These "rapid" games are not slot machines. Slot machines are regulated differently than table games. If they allowed the money to be put into the machine and tickets issued, then they would be slot machines.

Just to give an east coast view (seems like every rule in Vegas is slightly different in AC anyway)...the Rapid Roulette table is Ticket or Cash in (through a Slot Machine type bill acceptor), but you are paid off in chips. I figured it was also another way to get that last chance at a tip when they deliver your winnings.

Good info. When I talked with a service tech that had worked on the Rapid Craps table at Bill's he did mention just that. He did not see a need for ticket out. It would still be like leaving a regular casino table on cash out. Even tho at Rapid Craps the cash outs really do slow the game down if there is more than one cash out at a time, well actually the game totally stops and that does suck! I think it is the worst thing about the rapid craps game.

Perhaps what it needs is a single ticket out (or at least receipt out), in the stick's area, that would allow him to take his time paying out the players cashing out, while the game continues at it's regular pace.

Then again, having never played Rapid Craps yet, maybe it already does this and I don't know it. However, I'd assume someone would have mentioned it already if it did...

Hey, Bear that is a great idea. You must try Rapid Craps, it has some nice features unless you want the dealers to do everything for you.

Im sure Shuffle Master reads this forum and I know it does take customer survey cards at Bills.
