Vegas is not the place to play craps anymore. 3x4x5x odds is the norm in the nicer places, and the 10x/20x places are all down-at-heel. Dealers are bitter for the most part. I'd play in the Midwest or down South. (Or even better, Colorado).


You can say that again. And ironically, these are the same characters who b*tch the most about tips.

For me, craps is about the people. I think that people have the most fun playing craps when they are on vacation, playing with their disposal income, and drinking heavily. I've played in Vegas (strip, downtown, and Boulder strip), Atlantic City, Wheeling, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Illinois. My favorite by far is Las Vegas, specifically Casino Royale. The crowd is always pretty young, $3 craps 24/7 with great odds, and quick drink service, but the dealers are hit and miss. Also, I love the diversity of Vegas. You can play craps with people from all over the world. Atlantic City doesn't offer that kind of diversity, it always seems like it's 95% NJ, PA, and NY residents.

However, the best craps dealer and casino employee that I have ever seen is Christoper (maybe late 20's, thin guy with glasses) at the Atlantic Club in AC. I have no clue why he isn't at the Borgata.

.



True, however, on the positive side, if a table gets hot there is no experience like the roar you will hear in AC. I'll never forget a roll at Caesars where they had to call for two fills, two. $10.usd bettors were winning thousands and thousands. Everything is tempered in Las Vegas as people are on vacation as you say.

Valley Forge in PA, while not AC, but close to Philly offers 10X Odds everyday. And the tables are almost always full with players.

Ive played craps just about everywhere , including Monte Carlo overseas. Craps is craps... However, the factors that are key contributors for me are energy and flow. You can find the type of game / tables you want in either AC or Vegas.. whether you like crowded tables and slow dice or open tables with fast action, you can find a place in either city... just need to go at the right times usually.

As far as the comment on black chips, etc... he should probably go to Wynn or Bellagio if he like to see and play with high action.

There are also plenty of places at 2x, and that's something you just don't see in other jurisdictions. It's obviously true that people can just choose not to play at those sub-par Vegas houses, but it's also true that this isn't a choice that a person has to make in AC.

AC is (universally?) 5x except for Bally's which is 10x


I played at Harrah's and Resorts AC on Sunday. I am too cheap to play full odds at most places, so maybe I wasn't paying full attention. Resorts definitely offered 5x, but I thought Harrah's had 10x.

I played no more than 2.5x at a $10 table.

I played at the $100 minimum table in the high limit room at my local casino the other day. Two shooters (me and the guy before me to establish my action). $100 line bet. Won one, lost two, and done :(

Vow, it was me who was banned from Ahigh website . I like the way the wizard outlines of what you can and can not say . Ahigh is a man of mystery , I must guess of what he thinks and if you wrong he cuts your head off .anyway , 90% of people think that it's impossible to influence the game of craps and tiny minority believes otherwise , Ahigh is among them . I brought my explanation to an ongoing dispute , which resulted in a carnage by the wild man . Stalin and Pol Pot got the replacement .
