    Either a slot tech or a drink girl at a small Reno casino.

    not according to TR31, hes cleaning up at the bubbles, and living life large with all the comps the bubbles give them.

    is it station casinos that have posted, for every 12 dollars played, 1 comp point, and is it 1000 comp points are equivalent to 1 dollar cash value?

    Station casinos are $12 coin in = 1 point and 1000 points equal $1.

    Best I have found here in the home market is $3 coin in equal 1 point. 1 point is worth 1/2 cent cash back, 1 cent free play or 2 cents at the restaurants, coffee shop etc. Also get varying amounts of free play depending on the amount of play and whether you won or lost the previous month. Usually $25 or $50 a week for my play.

    Your best shot is to find smaller non corporate casinos who don't want to spend the money for the software upgrades to calculate the points at a different rate than slots.

    Riverside casino and the sister property Rhythm City, went the opposite route and no longer give any comps or points from ETG play.

    I’m not so sure that’s still the case. All those tags have been removed from the terminals.

    It's still 1,000 points is $1....but the $12 to 1 is in question.

    Wow, how very generous. You mean I only have to bet $12,000 , to earn a whole dollar in comps. No wonder TR-31, and his team, are getting rich.
    Are people really THAT stupid? :confused: :cool: You'd be a lot better off, just paying your way, unless you just like the "thrill" of turning your money into their money. :) A quarter of a million dollars in bets, to recieve $20 in comps. :cool: Even if all of your bets were pass line, that's still about $3400 in losses. :confused: Ooooooooooohhhh, let me go to the comp machine, and see how much money I've made. :D Ooooooohhhhhh, $20! That and another $10 cash will get you into the buffet line, with Liman. :D DAMN? :cool:

    Take it up with the guy claiming big comps, free slot play and other parting gifts via his "teams" bubble craps play.

    I've been saying for years....they've closed down any loopholes that might have been at one time. MGM shit canned comps entirely on bubble craps.

    Plus, you're not accounting for the bonus days of 10x points. Then $1,200 in play gets you $1 in comps. Happy now?:D

    Why are you shooting the messenger? TDV was only reporting info. You make it sound like he set the rules.
    Typical troll, jerk weed.

    Our 7-11 team was out in full force today. Don’t mess with us. The power of pass. The “TR31’s” have nothing on the Red Rock Bandits...;)

    Using the Eagleeye "I can spot biased dice in 10 rolls or less" detector, those dice are obviously 6/1 biased. They must of slipped them in while you wasn't looking. :eek:

    llike Ive said, so many bubble, so many states, so many casinos, I might be wrong about comps at station bubbles, but I remember it was next to nothing most of the time. the second night I was at green valley, I switched from 5 dollar bubble bets(25 odds) to 10 dollar live table, and after 2 sessions at live table I had enough comp dollars to get dinner for one.
    bubble play first day, 3-4 sessions, maybe 2.5 hours total play, under 2 dollars.

    I didn't switch for comps, I switched because I was just in the mood for live tables.

    Virtually nil. Even the guys wagering big say the same thing. Comps are about worthless on a play vs. point basis. They have taken down all the signs that said $12 for 1 point. I assume it’s worse now.

    There is one guy commandeering 2 terminals for darkside and right side. I have no clue if it’s worthwhile...but I highly doubt it.

    Im headed over to the big A tomorrow late morning to see whats going on there. Ill have to walk around to the different areas to see whats new in bubbleland.
    I usually park, go right to one bubble and never look anywhere else nor go anywhere else except restroom.
    Ill take pics of anything interesting. Ill give it 3-4 hundred buy in...

    OK, so there you have it, from TD himself. "Don't play the bubble" they're too skimpy with the comps. Let's all purge this worthless machine from every casino, by NOT playing it. :) From what I've seen, this movement has been in full swing, for quite a while now. Just as a double-check, let's go to the Aruze web site. :cool:

    Craps is the most labor intensive game out there....by a long shot. Bubble craps will grow in popularity,IMO. The only caveat was the table version that Aruze introduced at the gaming expo with terminals for wagering...no dealers and just a stickman. Looked promising. That game was supposed to be installed at the Linq in late 2018. AFAIK, never happened.

    As the older players and boomers fade....the genx'ers are all that's left. Sadly, the craps table is a dinosaur. New gamblers are going elsewhere.

    The craps table is an awesome game. Two dice. 36 combinations. Everything else makes it tough to run. Dealers are a special breed of employee. Tough game to run.

    No worries. Maybe you can port your $35 -12 session win streak to another game.

    If there is a point where the only craps game available is a bubble, then craps itself will die as a casino game. Regular craps players have not migrated to the bubble, even though the screen makes things so much easier. It's the dice, they do not appear to be random, and for a very good reason, THEY ARE NOT. The empty seats, is a pretty good indication, that others see it the same way I do. :confused: The lack of maintenance on the Aruze web site, is also an indication, that there is not much interest in this game. :) The inaccuracies on the web site, indicate some other kind of problem, at Aruze. Your continued touting of such a poor game, also indicates some sort of "problem". :cool:

    von duck,

    Right-On, I continue to see Bubble Craps Games come & then Go @ Casino's.

    All this time More CRAPS Tables are being installed, within these same CASINO'S with CASINO'S only staffing them as the DEMAND calls for, i.e. on Weekend NIGHTS, where all 6 or 8 CRAPS TABLES are OPEN Vs One or two during the days on any week.

    This tells one that there are adequate folks playing CRAPS on TABLES, just not enough folks playing in off times, like Monday through Friday days...

    It's been stated that each active CRAPS TABLE brings in ONE MILLION $ in Profit to a CASINO Per Year. Obviously those CRAPS TABLES staffed on demand bring in less per year, but enough to justify their being there.
