Maybe because they don't want people taking photos of the games? pretty standard in most casinos.



I had no problem taking a photo of the craps table layout at Caesars when I made five points. The Rincon facebook page has plenty of photos of players playing poker, players posing in front of slot machines with their jackpotss. No people were in the photo -- it was just the layout with the discs on the table.

Could there be a copyright issue with the artwork? Do you see other pictures of the same layout on their wall?

Also, congrats of the Firebet!

First I would love to take credit for my expert shooting, but I can't. LOL. I was only an RNG throwing two dice wildly down to the end of the table and the faces showing on the dice led to two card positions. Often I threw a 5-2 on the dice which made a point or a number. It's a crazy way to play craps and I did it more out of fun and for just being curious.

And you know my strategy for playing just the passline and the fire bet? Well, here's the ideal place to do it since any attempt at dice influencing or dice control doesn't mean anything.

About a copyright issue on the layout? Perhaps they are concerned about someone copying artwork, layouts, etc, but I have never seen a copyright symbol on any gaming table anywhere, have you? And what would be the purpose or effect? Taking a photo is not a violation of any copyright law, is it?

The reason why I think (some) casinos don't allow photography at gaming tables is that the photos might include other players. There is an assumption that when you are taking the photo of a royal flush that other players are not in the shot.

Again, Caesars Palace had no problem when I stopped the game to shoot the layout after I hit five numbers on the fire bet. And when the fire bet for all six numbers was hit several players whipped out their cell phones to snap photos at Caesars and no one said a word.

Maybe Bob Dancer had something to do with it. After all, he is out to get you at every turn.

I've never had any contact with Bob Dancer except when I went to one of his seminars about seven or eight years ago. As far as I know he has no idea who I am.

Does anyone know what type of air they pump throughout the casino? Rincon has a distinct scent to it. It reminds me of Caesars Palace: I always know I'm at Caesars or Rincon because of the smell...

There is a floral aroma when you enter thru the main entrance. I love it. but as soon as you go thru the second set of glass doors it's gone. Oh, that other smell is cigarette smoke.

What sidebets at Barona? I called Barona because I was told that with their card craps the cards are dealt face up one time for each shooter so you could actually see in advance what dice combinations you need to hit particular card values.

When I was talking to someone in the pit he said they had no fire bet and no hop bets and no exotic bets. so what side bets do they have?

Some folks at Rincon told me that PALA has some interesting jackpot bets. I was told if your dice show 1-1 and the cards show Ace-Ace that there is some kind of jackpot. I played card craps at Pala once several years ago but I don't recall any bet or jackpot like that.

I think this thread has revealed that even the much maligned Indian casinos are very much part of the items available on the smorgasbord and that all casinos are competitive in some manner seeking to differentiate themselves and reach out to some market niche.

Cards and Craps is a mixture I don't care to even consider so I'm glad I'm geographically untempted.

It shows that "gambling" is a variable offering and that there are various pressures on a casino customer: time, distance, spousal preferences, convenience, exotic atmosphere, particular unique variations at certain casinos, etc.

It is once again an illustration that "Vegas Baby" and "Las Vegas" are each states of mind as well as being geographically defined locations. I can see that if I were to trek to Rincon it would be a disappointing trip in many respects but still an adventure in some. The geographical dispersal of gambling is having a great effect on just what casinos offer and what customers will accept.
