    I have a few questions about laughlin casinos and craps. 1. What are the odds on the tables? are they 3-4-5, 2x, 5x, 10, 100x? 2. what are the general table minimums? 3. What casino's have the Fire Bet, and or All Tall, All Small, All bet, or repeater bet? Any insight would be much appreciated, thanks in advance...

    I was only there once, and I can't remember anything particilar about the craps game.

    I will say, though, you don't want to go there unless you absolutely have no choice. You see, the place is right on the river, and folks are swimming, water-skying, boating from to casino to casino. While I was there, several bikini-clad young cuties kept wondering in and out of the casino. One of 'em even joined the craps game I was at, and she even got on a bit of a heater, too. I don't think I've ever seen a bigger smile.

    So, yeah, there you have it: Stay away from that place.

    I don't know why I can't remember the details of the game, though. Odd.

    You can find craps games in Laughlin, but to my knowledge you won't find any of the bonus bets. Good tables at Don Laughlin's, Aquarius, and Harrah's. Golden Nugget is nice, but extremely bouncy. Most games $3 or $5. Odds typically 3x4x5. They cater to old folks, not craps players.

    Caters to Old folks? Not Crap Players? Hot diggedy ! Sounds like Old Top would blend in MIGHTY NICE! $3-$5 tables, too? An Old Dice Hustlers paradise!

    I've always loved the regression plays that I can make on those low minimum tables WITHOUT risking much !

    Now, TDVegas says that if you can be successful betting the $3-$5 tables, you should have no problems moving up to the higher limit tables!

    As I said previously.......Tossing dice with precision is just like the prize inside a Cracker Jack Box! It could very well be a Booby prize inside.........Waiting just for YOU!

    Laughlin is James Hall's ATM. I'm sure he could give you a profitable tour of the best joints.

    there is one table in Laughlin that the Mesa guys do well on , it's at the tropicana
    the rest do not match the bounce characteristic of our tales
    I personally don't go to Laughlin , only one table to play

    I go to Riverside there 4-5 times a year.

    For me Riverside's table is to high so I don't play there,
    Trop wont allow me to play. Aquarius has a real nice
    14 table. they used to be hard to play on if you set the
    dice but last year they were real nice, Avi has a very nice
    12 foot table with an ATS bet. I never play at any of the
    other places, I would rather drive to Vegas for a day or so.

    But Avi and Aquarius are very beatable....
    Avi is my favorite table right next to the 12 foot crapless
    table at Roadhouse in Tunica

    My experience in Laughlin is they will be all over you for setting dice. During the day you want to play at the Belle. They have the half table with only one dealer. I hate how their buy bets there they charge you the vig upfront other than maybe at the Nugget.

    My question would be to the casino...rather than getting "all over you" (not defined)---and making you feel unwelcome (wonderful customer service:rolleyes:)...why not just say no setting allowed from the getgo? I'm trying to understand it from the casinos point of view. Why allow someone to set if they clearly don't want you setting? Isn't this akin to having a hot pot on the stove and watching your kid touch it without warning him?

    Just say "no setting allowed"...why jerk around with allowing someone to "touch the hot pot"...then say..."don't do that"? Put a sign on the pot.

    Unless the setting problem is derived from the player simply taking too long and the casino feels it is holding up the game or slowing it (case by case basis). Then I can see where the issue is.

    They don't have a problem with you setting them but if you do you can expect them to talk to you about those crap classes. I also had a guy trying to get under my skin on how that doesn't work and makes them so much money. If you rolling as soon as the first dice comes up a half inch short they lecture you on the rules. Now the chicken feeder that goes next rolls several times barely getting dice past the middle bets and nothing is said.

    My visual on the dice setters has been they have a very defined way of tossing with some having a pendulum type lob toss. I suspect the crew realizes right off the bat that these players are going to have short tosses from time to time by wanting to just "kiss" the back wall...and they probably cut it short with a quick warning.

    Meanwhile the chunkers might just screw up with their throw and come up short...but the dealers see intent to hit the back wall...therefore cut them a little more slack on misses. In each case, it's a bit of a slippery "case by case" basis.
    You mean DI schools? What are the dealers saying? if I was running the casino...I would encourage my employees to talk "nicely" about DI schools or teachers. The only caveat being I'm going to have discretion on players slowing the pace of the game
    Well...depends how you look at it. If by making more money for the casino he means bringing in more gamblers---dice setters (DI's)....I would agree.

    If he means those attempting DI will lose more than non setters...I disagree.

    if dice setting slows the pace of the game...it's less money for the casino.
