Falling in love with roulette...

My Vegas trip last week has me hooked on roulette. I love that game, even if I lose money. If you do it right you could have hours of entertainment and the interaction with the others at your table can be quite fun I am typically not a gambler, but that game is fun Anyone else like this game?

I started with roulette. Then moved to some stuff with better odds like video poker and blackjack. I go to Vegas a couple times a year now.

I heart Roulette. It's the best way to get drunk in Vegas, and the best way to stretch those funds when you're smart.

Video Poker can be veerrry pleasant. I spent a 20 and with $1.25 left hit four of a kind aces and got 200 dollars. Sometimes Video Poker however just lets you drain a few twenties in too little a time.

Another friend won $1,915 on a 10 dollar buy in (Royal Flush)...that asshole...

When you're ready to move up, Craps is the best team gamble sport with the most energy. It's has the highest highs and lows I've experienced, but everyone is together in that same sense.

I don't care what anyone says. Blackjack sucks a big flacid one. Never before have I lost 100 dollars so fast. I'll never play it again.

Craps. Most entertaining game at the casino. Yes it is slightly complicated the first few times, but I can easily sit at a table for 8 hours playing with $500.

Mathematically, supposed to have the best odds in the house. I have played a few times, but I find it confusing as hell. I think I am just too slow to understand all of the options.

Yeah some have the blackjack knack (i.e. the lucky and skilled). I most certainly do not (being possibly the most unlucky human on the planet and not particularly skilled).

The only time I played roulette, I started with $40 and I think I was over $100 in about an hour. Then by an hour and ten minutes, I busted.

It was fun though.

What's the premise of craps? Are you just really betting on what the number will be on the dice throw?

Someone could tell you all the rules of that game and you'll forget them until you are in it. You start by playing the pass lane to open the game.

There is betting with the shooter, against the shooter, specific number combos, specific number totals, etc. A dbag bets against the shooter.

Rules are here tho:

more betting what won't be on the dice. You can play with the house on this game if you want too. Although, it's frowned upon by other players around the table.

I too prefer Craps. Roulette, you are actually competing against the house and other players, unless you share the same numbers. Plus, the dealer spins the ball. BJack and baccarat, each player may win/lose independently of each other, but not "team" games.

Now Craps is about the only game with player control as he is the one rolling the dice. I have seem strangers kiss and hug each other more than their own mothers when playing Craps. The loudest area in casino's always seem to come from the craps table. "Roll an 8 and I'll name my firstborn after you" has been uttered at least 100 times/day in Vegas.

Basic Craps play - roll the dice. 7 or 11 wins. If you roll a 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, then that is your point. Now, you want to hit your point before you roll a 7.

Players are betting on all the numbers. So if 8 is your point, and you roll a 4, 9, 10, 6, 9, 5, then an 8, you made 6 winning rolls.

Worst case, you roll a 10, then a 7. Goodbye.

There are different odds depending on the point and which number you are betting.

Sounds like a CLSB outing to Joliet or Elgin this summer is in order.

Doesn't the house make the most $$$s on roulette? They make the least on craps followed by blackjack, correct?

In most houses, correct. Followed by video poker.

Craps is a BLAST! A little complicated to jump right in but if you read up on it before hand it's easy to understand.

Ohh yeah the word "vegas" itself is heaven to me. I like gambling. Started playing roulette at first it was fun but when the "00" or "0" comes out it sucks! Then tried craps same thing it is fun together with other buddies but when the "7" comes out totally sucks. Then my favorite is black jack. I can be on that table in hours, the key is do not play single hand (1 bet) all the time mixed it up once in awhile. Dont mind those loosers next to you if they tell you not to do that. You can bet as manny hand as you want f**k them. Ofcourse you have to double bet on "10" or "11. "Timming is everything babyyyyy".

Go to some of the smaller casinos (Flamingo, Imperial Palace, etc) and play craps.

They sometimes have little courses at certain times of day too, and the thing about craps most of the time is like I said: Team sport.

People cheer on each other and many are willing to help someone new to the table because they know exactly what it looked like the first time they stepped up. Find someone who doesn't look like a deuche, saddle up to the table, ask questions, just watch for a while, and then re read those rules again. Then when you're ready, throw some chips down, and give it a whirl.

Those rules will make muuuch more sense after seeing the game played and trying a few rounds.

only worry about pass/fail and the come bet (the best odds in the house) at first. The rest will come as you play

Horse racing is by far the funnest form of gambling IMO but I've actually done ok with Roulette too. I was almost up $300 in roulette the last time I was in Vegas
