    Most off strip casinos bubble craps are $1-$2 minimums.

    On strip? I've seen as high as $5 for pass line bets while other wagers are $1.

    Maximums are generally cranked up so as not to "lock up" a terminal for a hand pay. For example, field bets are capped at $399 so a 2-12 result will "kick back" $1,197. $1,200 will lock up a terminal for a hand pay. All bets will be capped in this manner. Some even lower.

    Odds range from 2x to a max of 5x that I've seen.

    Went to Tahoe/Reno last year. Tahoe north shore had older casinos with a bubble.
    $1 minimums.

    Reno?...not a fan. Peppermill didn't have a bubble if I recall. I had not been to Reno in many years. I don't see myself going back. Tahoe? Definitely. Especially in the summer.

    Enjoy.

    This place I believe is 25 cents individual bets. $1 min aggregate bet. I don't remember for sure.

    All they have is a slots, VP, and a craps machine. Food is decent and cheap as far as Vegas prices go.

    Wow...that place is still there?

    I think they were famous for .10 cent roulette.

    If I remember...it was closed for a while and they did some renovations? This has to be 8-10-12 years ago.

    You might be thinking about the Klondike Hotel and Casino that was south of Mandalay Bay on South Las Vegas Boulevard. I picked up a token there before it closed in 2006. Per Wikipedia, Klondike Sunset (linked by Mssthis1) was its sister casino.

    It's still there and looks like they spent some money on it. Not very big. I think it has 200 something machines. We eat there once in a while when we're wandering around Henderson and I've played the bubble machine a couple times.

    It seems to have a LONG and interesting history of opening, closing and renovations. The picture of the outside is what I remember...

    Sunset Station, when it opened....did a number on their "numbers."

    It has struggled since then. I assume it has operated with thinner margins as opposed to just shuttering. These places are like "Jim's Hardware Store" next to Home Depot. They usually don't last.

    Kudos for keeping it going.
