First and foremost are the odds. Most of the machines I have played are only double odds.



My understanding is that the casino sets the odds, along with the minimums and other rules. I recall someone posted of better odds in some machines, but I forget where.

For that matter the field should pay triple on either the 2 or 12, as do most tables Downtown. I would love it if it were triple on both the 12 and 2, but I wouldn't expect it.

The other thing that I wish it had was an "I'm ready" button. Make your bet, then push the "I'm ready" button and the roll starts. It is an excruciatingly slow game, especially when playing alone.



It was only 20 seconds for bets in the machines I played. I also played alone a bit, and it didn't strike me as slow. And I get impatient with elevator doors which take more than an immeasurable instant to close after I hit the close-door button ;)

Besides, it gives you time to flag down a waitress or to collect your drink.

And by the way, I think one of the dealers on the machine, has a little thing for me. I swear she winks at me all the time. Every trip. ;)



Funny thing my wife pointed out to me: Those electronic dealers look like they just passed gas. It's hilarious if you look for it.
$1700, 18, 19, 1920, 40, 60,... :/ Thx 'Do it again'. I'll try

It's a hell of a lot easier to do stupid things when all you have to do is touch a screen and your neighbors don't know and don't have time to know. I wouldn't even know how to communicate those bets on a real table and many others might not as well. Twenty seconds between games is damn almost hostile.

That's what I am saying. 20 seconds... SECONDS!! ARGGGHHHHHH!


lol

But think about it. On a real table when you are playing alone, you can fly. Shoot the dice, shoot the dice, shoot the dice.
And seriously, that 20 seconds on the machines can seem like forever, especially when you are not making any more bets and are just trying to make the point.

I have played these machines I think at seven different casinos and none of them had "hurry up" buttons. It puzzles me because you would think the casinos would suggest it to Aruze as it would make the casino more money.

I'm like that with elevator doors. Of course, i swear the elevator in my building takes longer to clsoe the doors when I'm feeling particualrly impatient. It can't possibly be a coincidence ;)

And go through your bankroll with a bad roll in what will feel like 20 seconds, too ;)

Seriously, I dislike playing alone for just that reason: it's too fast.

True. Not that it ever felt too long to me, but sometimes you're just sitting there waiting for the timer to run down. If I got bored, I'd tap the rules buttons and read the rules. Then, too, on many sessions I would chat with other players. I handed out a few WoO/WoV cards on such ocassions.

I got more impatient when cashing out. Some machines seemed to take forever to print the ticket.

About odds play in bubble craps amchines, I never did check how much was allowed in odds at casinos like the Venetian, MGM or Bellagio. WHy not, because these were $5 minimum machines. My main reason to play bubble craps is that you can play at $2-$3 min on pass line and come bets. If I'm going to play with a $5 lower limit, I may as well play at a real table. $3 craps tables are rare where I usually visit.

I did play at Casino Royale for a small loss. The idea there was precisely to bet more on odds, but the table wasn't cooperating. There is a $3, 2X table always open at the Fremont, but it's usually packed. And since those are the same rules as in bubble craps, well...

well after several beers me and my new best friend sitting next to me deciphered the secrets of the dice and realized we were seeing lots of 12's... so of course I click a $5 and then boxcars... hit the plunger.... double six! woo hoo! got to hit again, right? sure, I'll even double my bet... ("c'mon.. roll the dice!") - hit the plunger - you kiddin me???!!!! 6-6!!!!! ok - next roll.... double my bet again... hit the plunger.... 7 out!.... that was pretty cool - stayed at the table for another 30 minutes, no more betting boxcars for me, my new buddy was throwing down $5 or $10 on every roll and promptly gave all of his winnings back... I walked away with about $700 (started with $100)....
