Red Rock has a new version of Bubble Craps. Instead of one pair of dice that everyone bets on, now you have your own individual pair of dice at your station. You play at your own pace.

No one is playing it.


Red Rock has 2 types of electronic craps. Stadium style and personal bubble machines (Interblock). My walk thru today was....a virtual ghost town. NOTHING is getting played, tables or machines. I cannot imagine the losses. Well, yes I can...MGM reported a $1 billion loss today. Locals casinos are also getting hit.

Craps tables are generally a 4 man operation and in the grand scheme of our world today....a dinosaur from a business sense. Casinos will continue to look for opportunities to cut employees. It is their largest expense.

People want their craps table. I get that. I also get itís close to impossible to run these tables profitably with capacity limits. I have no idea where or when this ends...but suspect we are a while away.

Vital Vegas is reporting today that the Sahara will close...permanently. September.

When it comes to table games, they need to stick with the tradition. Cards, chips, dice, live dealers etc. That is the reason you go to a casino. If everything becomes electronic, no sense to even leave the house, you can just play online. Casinos need to focus more on legitimizing online gaming if they want to focus more on electronic gaming


The craps table is a dinosaur from a business sense. In any other realm, it would have been retired. 4 employees and can still run very slow. These games are kept around because slots thru-out the floor is a no-go because hubby isnít playing slots all day with the wife. A necessary option.

If I understand this correctly, you have complained to authorities about conditions at RR being unhealthy, continue to think conditions are bad but were willing to be part of a marketing test there for a meal voucher?



That was before all the Covid stuff. Before the mandates to wear masks and before RR got lax about their enforcement.

Also this was when Vegas didnt have the Covid problems it has now.

Another thousand cases added today.

I still contend the mask mandate is totally half assed. You are still allowing people to smoke away without a mask, blowing covid respiratory smoke, ashes and vape smoke...all over the godamn casino floor. Dump the mask mandate or universally enforce it. Mask up. No excuses. Drink thru a straw. Ban smoking and vaping.

Itís a half assed approach...which is probably why we are continuing to get 1,000 plus new cases everyday. Those who might be spreading this virus are being given a COMPLETE PASS to blow covid smoke thruout the casino environment. Throw in the ash and vapor particles...well, you got another 1,000 cases today.

Until someone can explain to me how there is no hypocrisy in this ďplanĒ by Gaming control and Governor....My point stands. A good 20-25% on the casino floor are being exempt from spreading the virus.

Might as well go back to mask optional...because those potentially spreading the virus are mask exempt anyway. We arenít talking breathing here...we are talking blowing. Exempt.

I don't play on full tables, not for years. I plan and play when I am the only player or up to at the most 4 other players. I'm there to throw, I don't want to wait for my turn, so...In my opinion, a great craps game can be played on a smaller table with just one dealer who does the stick, pays and supervises himself under the watchful eye in the sky.

That's why I liked playing at either the Nugget in Laughlin or the Pioneer. They had a really nice 10 footer, that during the day only had one dealer. Great games for a couple o friends or so. Don't need no aircraft carrier's these days.

If I can play Baccarat with $5 bets, that would get me in the game, because the local tables have a $25 or $50 minimum even though most people would bet $20 or $40 on Banker for the vig split. What are the maximum bets? Is there a tax form for each $600 bet that pays $1200, or $1200 bet that pays $2400? I might have to max my bets at $550 or $1,100. What's the max cash-out? Does the machine eject a TITO at $3,000 and tell you to find a real table? I suspect these stadiums games are the future, but Bingo would be more boring.



Yes, if you are playing on a machine in the U.S. and the payout is $1200 or more you will get a W2G.

That's not correct in my experience.

Not sure how it works everywhere but in NY you get a voucher only good at the cashier but she can tell if you actually won over $1200.

For example if you wagered $1400 on Banker in Baccarat and got a tie you would receive a jackpot voucher for $1400 but not a W2G when cashing it
