Does anybody know if a video craps "machine" exists in Las Vegas and if so where can i find one. Also if one does not exist, why?

Well there's RapidCraps, available at the always classy Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon on the strip. it's sort of like a video version of craps.

More to the point, why are you looking for such I thing? I think half of the fun of a craps game is the social atmosphere and getting to actually throw the dice. Video craps would take all that away!

I consider video craps much, much different from RapidCraps. I have seen both but never played either, sticking to the real game. I have never seen video craps in Las Vegas, only in tribal casinos where real dice are prohibited. I don't think I would ever play that game (posted my reasons in another thread yesterday evening), but I would be willing to try RapidCraps. Just haven't yet.

I have no idea whether video craps exits in Las Vegas somewhere I have not seen it. If you search to find the manufacturer, perhaps their web site would have info about installations.

Why?, many real craps tables are available and the cost to install one of the Video Craps may still be very high.
I know in CA at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio they have Shuffle Masters' Vegas Star Craps game.
It is actually fun to play since a shooter can virtually roll the dice. Still all computer controlled.

i still dont think that rng's produce realistic rolls, so many things effect how dice land (not saying these thing determine the outcome) but the way they bounce, how hard they are rolled, how they hit the backboard, if they hit the back board, if they hit money. none of these things are taken into consideration by the rng.

prime example the craps game here on WoO's site many times i roll point 7 point 7 hardly ever get hardways and always seem to loose way more than win... showing the house edge being more like 94.41% rather than 1.41% on passline wagers.


and point 7 probably occurs about 80% of the time

I have never observed those phenomena at the WoO/WoV craps games. I have played them a modest amount, and I play them more aggressively than I would play a real game with real money. I think the outcomes are quite similar to what I would have expected if I had played the same style for real. Sometimes I come out ahead; sometimes I lose a bunch.

Then it should be crystal clear what to bet next.

Be sure to let us know the exciting results here. Thanks in advance.

90% right is fully sufficient. Just bet on "any 7" when you see it coming. You can quit your job and just make a living doing that.
