Just got back from Biloxi. Played the bubble craps machine at Treasure Bay casino for perhaps 12-14 hours while I was there with good results. This may be boring to some of you guys, but I would usually play the iron cross for a few rolls, then once I had a profit, I would reduce or even take my bets down to insure I made a profit. I had 7 sessions of about 2 hours a piece and won 6 out the 7 sessions. I didn't win big but usually won about 50 bucks or so for each session....I'm not getting rich by any means, but I'll take that every time!

Just thought I would share.

Seems I would do better to bet the DP for my sessions, but then the dice get hot. There's usually 1 Hot Shooter (≥ 20 rolls) per hour. But sometimes they bunch up, or there's none at all. If I bet DP for 3 hours, I might be ahead for the session. But if I'm gonna flip-flop depending on the shooter, I'll probably double my buy-in losses.

The last time I played there, I got 2 free days in the hotel and $15 a day to eat on.....Plus my points allowed me to eat another meal free, so not great but not bad.

Not a real craps table....Min bet one dollar....Not sure, but the max was $500 I think....Of course, I never came close to doing that.

They had a real craps table but it was usually busy....There are pros and cons to playing a bubble craps machine as opposed to a real craps table.....

Pros---I'm getting older so I enjoy that I can sit down while I'm playing
You don't have to listen to dealers make smart comments if you take your bets down or reduce them
Your balance is always displayed on the screen
There is no one to tip
Ability to make very small wagers

Cons---I sort of missed the synergy of the group at the table. Nothing beats a hot table atmosphere.
It's fun to roll the dice

So to me, the pros outweigh the cons, but I'm sure I will play the real table again someday....

They had one real craps table at the Treasure Bay Casino in Biloxi. Min bet was only 5 bucks when I was there which was on a weekday. I'm guessing it's a 10 dollar table on the weekend. I'm a low roller so I don't know what the max bet is.

Is the bubble craps machine on the first floor or the second floor where the buffet is, and how many players can be accommodated at the machine?

I'll either hit the 4 six times, or the 10 six times, or both six times each.

The bubble craps machine is on the 2nd floor.....I could be wrong, but I think it allows about 4 players on the machine but it was never an issue while I was there since I was there on a week day......I was usually the only person playing.....

I agree with you. The pros on the machines are better and more relaxed than the pressure of the table.... but if there is a good crowd, a table can feel amazing.

In Biloxi, generally, one does not have to "buy" the 4/10. When it hits you pay the vig.

I believe most casinos charge vig on 4/10 on win only.

So what do you call it then? Youíre not placing it or laying it.

Is vegas getting rid of bubble craps? Come to think of it, I don't remember seeing any when I was there a few weeks ago.

The player yells "QUATRO" and throws his bet at the box man.

Only if it hits. I would expect that there are many casinos currently that require a pre-buy, for me, I would not indulge.
