The Horseshoe Baltimore is opening August 26th. They claim on their website they will be offering 100X odds on craps, which would amaze me. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

Every Horseshoe owned by Caesars offers this as far as I know. One of the few liberal gaming rules they offer. Your state will have you covered on blackjack though.

On page 17
Under "X. Pass Line and Come Odds", you'll see that they do have 100x odds.

It's a great gimmick to get people through the doors...I'd imagine the minimums will be $15-25 for at least the first few months, and I certainly won't be backing $1500-2500 behind my pass line bet. I'd wonder how many people take full advantage of the 10X odds at MD Live.

And yes, MD doesn't give leeway on the core game rules. Casinos can offer all kinds of side bets and adjust those odds, but the core game rules are identical from one place to the next.

Slightly off topic, MD Live has changed things a bit as the Horseshoe nears opening. They added another pit of blackjack, limits have come back down to Earth (more $15 tables), and they added a pit of $25 hi-top mini baccarat tables by the Ram's Head concert stage.

I'd check the website AND the local media outlet which has been running video tours of the construction area and video interviews.

I mean I checked the website and it's useless. Maybe local degenerates with higher ranges got some mailers.

Their website is the standard Caesars casino website that all the properties use. I imagine MD Live is going to have something going on opening night though...

Well, they opened last night, with thousands of people waiting in line while the venue had already reached capacity of 6800 people. Whenever I visit, I will try to confirm the 100x odds. However, rumor on the poker boards says that craps had a $25 minimum on opening night, which is not surprising considering most craps games at Maryland Live are also $25 minimum.
