Hello, Does anyone know where the video crap game made by Shufflemaster is located. This game does not have a dealer. You roll the dice through a virtual screen.
I last saw this game at Barona Casino near San Diego about three years ago. Thank You to all.

I think the one at the Bill's Gambling Hall is made by Shufflemaster.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thank You, I understand that one has one live dealer much like roulette where you make bets on a screen.
The video craps I'm talking about is totally self run.

I don't think it's made by shufflemaster, but there's a video craps where you use a touchscreen to roll dice. It's at Indiana Live! outside Indianapolis.

I have seen it at:

Foxwoods, CT (They had one in the Rainmaker Casino area, in a hallway connector. The last time I was there, it was gone, with the electrical outlets all that remained...)
Yonkers Raceway/Casino in NY (They had several on their second floor)

Both places had a layout similar to Electronic Roulette, and no real dice. Just a touchscreen in front of each player. You could physically touch the screen and "fling" the dice, or just press the "Roll Dice" button, which was one of only a couple of actual electronic (not touch screen) buttons on each player's station.

Her's a small picture of the Yonkers one. Interesting they allow Electronic Craps, Roulette, and Bac, but no BJ?

Club79, Yes thats it, I guess there just not around anymore. Maybe there was to much advantage to the player? Thanks to all.

I'm not entirely sure, but I have a feeling it has to do with the fact that players can influence the outcome in BJ by standing, drawing, splitting, etc. (and would therefore be in violation of some gaming regulation). In Craps, Roulette and Baccarat, players only choose which bets to make.

That's a valid point. And, if correct, it just shows how silly the different rules are from state to state. In NY, no BJ, just electronic Craps, Roulette, Bac. In FL, ONLY card based games are allowed, no dice, roulette, etc. So you have 3CP, BJ, etc...When I was in FL, I asked the pit boss (who was a AC veteran before moving south) how likely it would be that they'd expand to Craps. He said it would be extremely difficult because the law specifically said "Cards only" and that's how they got a lot of wavering lawmakers to support it. I said that things change, and we've seen many other states expand. He said, true, but don't hold your breath, and if you really want to play Craps, he can get some guys together in the parking lot...He was being sarcastic...I think.

Has anyone ever played the types of games mentioned in this article? In the second part of the article, there are comments about the atmosphere of a video craps game, and I'm wondering if anyone can either confirm or deny this. There are some in my area, and I'm wondering what I could expect to see.
