I made a quick stop in Stateline, Nevada last week. What a beautiful part of the country. No snow on US 50 along the way, which made the visit possible. In year's past, I have taken that route (and the northern route on I-80 over Donner Pass) and had to put chains on all tires, which makes the drive hellishly long. On this visit, the weather was great (for February) -- and I missed the 8"+ of snow that hit Chicagoland while I was away! 1. There are 5 casinos in Stateline with craps tables: Harveys (3 craps tables), Harrah's (5 craps tables), Montbleu (3 craps tables), Hard Rock (2 craps tables), and Lakeside Inn and Casino (1 craps table). 2. Harveys, Hard Rock and Montbleu had 1 table open, Harrah's had 2 tables open. I was told more tables would be open at those casinos during Friday/Saturday peak hours. The lone table at Lakeside was open. 3. $5 craps tables were available at all 5 casinos when I visited. 4. Lakeside Inn and Casino has a 16' table. It is a lonnnnnggggg table. No bonus bets (ATS or Fire), but the only casino offering 3x on the Field 12. PL was $5 to $200 with 10x odds ($2K max). You could definitely hear the dice when they hit the table. 5. Hard Rock is the only casino that offers the Fire Bet (no ATS). PL was $5 to $1,000 with 3x/4x/5x odds. 6. Harrah's, Harveys and Montbleu offer the ATS (no Fire Bet) at 30x/150x/30x. PL was $5 to $2,000 with 3x/4x/5x odds. 7. Harveys, Harrah's, and Montbleu all had Aruze Shoot to Win Craps. I don't recall if Hard Rock had electronic craps. 8. On the way to Lake Tahoe area, I stopped by Red Hawk Casino (Placerville, CA, mailing address). This is an IGRA (Native American) facility built into a mountainside. There are 2 craps tables featuring the California version of the game. Recall in California, dice alone cannot dictate the outcome of a game of chance. So the casino uses a form of card craps using 6 cards, each with a different number from 1 to 6, and 6 rectangle outlines, each with a different number from 1 to 6. The 6 cards are hand-shuffled card and then 1 card is placed inside each of 6 numbered rectangles. The cards are then flipped over. The shooter tosses 2 dice and the outcome of the dice determines which card value is to be selected. So if the dice show a 3 and 5, then the value of the cards in the 3rd & 5th rectangle outlines is what was "rolled". If the dice are 4 and 4, then the value of the card in the 4th rectangle is doubled. The cards are reshuffled for each new shooter. I have to say the crew was much more efficient at this version of the game than I had recalled years earlier (using a different setup that involved card shuffling machines). There were 2 craps tables. PL $5 to $1,000 with 3x/4x/5x odds. ATS at 34x/175x/34x. No Fire Bet. Also Shoot to Win Craps, but the machine was out of order. IMO, the most interesting offering at Red Hawk Casino was Dai Bacc, a modified version of EZ Baccarat that offers a "kill" bet. I haven't seen this version offered anywhere in the Midwest and previously only at 2 other casinos/cardrooms. Shame I didn't have time to study it more closely. 9. If you get the opportunity, it's definitely worth a visit. The Lake Tahoe area is beautiful, with lots to do outdoors throughout the year (provided there is sufficient snowfall during the winter...).
