IMHO best bet is the cheapo craps table, and tip the cocktail waitress well. You and your crew will not dry out, at all. But if you're there for anything other than some entertainment while you down your "free" drinks, then most likely no.
I had a night where we played craps all night for 40 dollars and drank a ton. We were tipping our dealer and waitresses a ton (for us) when we won. They were stoked and so were we.

It was so fun.

I can't gamble now.

That's why when I go to a casino Texas Hold'em is my go to. When playing Hold'em you are playing against other people (although the house takes it's rake) and every other game at a casino you are playing against the house. That's not saying I've done well at the tables but I at least have a chance.
Not the Vegas Casinos I played. . You play the Dealer. Everybody at the table is playing the Dealer. .

As a Gambler this is what I say. " I should have brought more money so when I had a dip I was able to cover it so I could come back up". So obviously I could lose more money.

Jeez that almost sounds like more hassle than it’s worth. How much was the total nickel jackpot?
I can't really remember - it was over 20 years ago - probably $50 - $80 - not much - but even $50 is 1,000 nickels!! I momentarily felt like a millionaire :cheers:

I read a book by Warren Buffet's partner Charlie Munger called "Poor Charlie's Almanac". Charlie described how roulette works and I had to read the passage many times to wrap my head around the simplicity and the genus of it. There are 36 slots on the wheel that the ball can fall into and it pays 34 to 1. This means that if you bet $1 on all 36 numbers (slots) you would win $34 each turn, losing $2 a turn. Whether you bet all 36 or just 1 the odds are inexorably the same. The odd, even, red, black, all means nothing but it makes you think that there could be a system. There isn't - it's just 36 slots and pays 34 to 1.

It's been a long time since I've been but when I played Texas Hold Em at some of the casinos there were many cash games where the dealer was only dealing and taking rakes. Also Sit-N-Go tournaments where you would only play other players. I've heard of some of the table games where everyone plays the dealer tho I never played them.

Like another one of your posts I too play a bunch on my phone for fake chips. I've been playing one the World Series of Poker (WSOP) app and it sounds similar where you can buy chips if you want and I too haven't spent a dime on it. It's not the same as playing for real money for you get the people who will just shove all in a lot since it costs nothing, but it does scratch the itch.

I just lost $300 at the Hold'em table at the Wynn. At $115 a round minimum I was out in 15 minutes. You got to have deep pockets to play here.
Money is too damn hard to come by. I won $309 last year. Now Vegas is SQ. Im out!
Ha I just stayed at the Wynn all weekend celebrating my anniversary. You should have joined Ms Pac and I in the sports book this weekend where we cleaned up. Between Curtis Blades win in UFC and Barcelona beating Real Madrid on Saturday and then the Mets beating the Padres on Sunday, I cashed out up $7,000, stocked! Celebrated with the most incredible Sushi dinner I've ever had at Mizumi Sunday night. Place is phenomenal!Wynn.jpg

I played the Card Clubs in Gardena years ago. Low Ball, 5 card draw. Never won big bucks. Sometimes enough to pay rent then, $200.00 for a one bedroom in Manhattan Beach. Humorous at times with a yakkity player.
A few good local Hawaiian plate lunch places there then. 1970's. Compton Dairy Queen for dessert before Compton became COMPTON.

many moons ago while in college i was on a few doses at imperial palace playing blackjack (never gamble) and got into some weird vortex rythym where the cards were floating and everyone speaking in languages and i could not understand anything and was just locked in on the green velvet and floating cards and somehow walked away with 5k which for a college kid was a fortune

Two different games. There is the table game in the pit where you only against play the dealer, and then 'real' hold em in the poker rooms where you play the other players and the house only takes the rake.

Gamblers of ERBB can lose a lot of money, even if they have experience in the game. Having a small capital, these players go to the casino hoping to win their first million. Still, many do not know that online casinos have a huge range of games and user-friendly interfaces. Such is the online casino https://wolfwinnercasino.com/login which not only pays out winnings immediately but also protects your money safer than many banks.
