Headed to Vegas tomorrow. Please give any advice to the low roller BJ player, craps player, drunk. Where to play, where not to play, staying at NYNY. Love the site, love the forum.

You can play $3 full-pay (3:2) BJ at the ultra-low roller Slots of Fun next to Circus Circus. They also have $3 craps out on the sidewalk. Warning, its not swanky though.

Sorry, this question is more geared toward BJ. I assume that a $5 min craps game with 3x4x5 odds (low roller) is easy to find on the Strip even after dark. But if there are some bad craps tables please let me know. Also, cocktails service factors in (for me). To put it another way, where is the best low roller BJ game (including split), MC, Trop, Bill's? Thanks again for the advice.

Do they still pay out in coin?

You should be able to find $5 craps at Monte Carlo in off-peak hours. Maybe $5 BJ at Excalibur, but definitely at Trop or Hooters over there.

Last time I played at Excalibur (2 years ago) they had some really bad rules. Let me know if things have changed. I would love to play in that dump with real 3-2 BJ. Thanks.

More than likely not since its an MGM property. Almost everything $5 (or less) is 6:5 BJ on the strip. The only exceptions would be up on the north end (Sahara, Strat, Riv).

If you want good odds on low-roller 21, you'll need to go downtown.

That is what I figured, what about switch though?

Check out the Wizard's blackjack survey to find exactly what you're looking for. If I were you, I would head to Ellis Island for the huge draft beers they bring and decent BJ. Hooters has some low minimums but with terrible rules and you can never get a seat.
