Don't normally play table games, but I have $10 match play.

Casino charges a $0.50 fee per hand on table games, so, assuming my best EV is to make one big bet.

What game should I play, and should I fire it all in one big bet or make multiple bets.

Games they have are Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, "Roulette" (with a video screen instead of an actual wheel), Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride, Pick One 21, 3 card Poker, Ultimate TX Hold Em, Dragon Baccarat, that I recall.

1 hand of Blackjack, pass line on craps, or red/black on roulette.

Winstar charges money on every table game per hand or just certain limits?

I don't think craps is available anywhere in Oklahoma. Screwy.

And .50 per hand? HE isn't enough? Wow! Greedy and screwy.

Choctaw has some kind of weird craps done with cards. The funny thing is the table still has the rubber bumpy pyramids for dice even though the felt has pictures of cards on it.

I wonder if it's a superstition or something.

Craps with cards, which I have never experienced sounds really lame. Part of the excitement is watching the dice fly and the short wait for them to finally stop and reveal their numbers-good, bad or neutral.

I have no suggestion on how to use your $10, but good luck.

I would assume it's cheaper to buy a normal table from a normal distributor.

And fire it on one hand, preferably on the days the house doesn't charge that fee. (I swear I have read they occasionally do that at some OK casinos.) If every game still charges the fee, I play BJ if you get 3 to 2 on the free play. Otherwise, craps. If it's match play where the coupon is always surrendered and if they somehow allow it's use on non-even money bets, then go for a single number on roulette.

All table games in Oklahoma need to be card-based games according to the treaty between the tribes and the state regulators. Some casinos have cards-based roulettes or craps.

We had a casino manager from an OK casino hanging around here for a while...don't remember his username...anyway, that is absolutely correct. There were several ways to get around the collection fee, mostly involving joining the player's club and playing during certain "happy hours." Didn't seem like a hard and fast rule at all.

Well, they do use a single die and it's made out of paper and the die is large, almost 5 inches. The player throws that die and dealer uses cards marked with numbers 1 to 6, whatever combination they get that's your number. I'm not sure, but I think that is how it works.
