    My only recent action was in Manila, where stools with backs(sort of like a Black Jack chair but a tad smaller and lower) were the norm. All three casino's had them in place around the table.

    With a trip to Singapore and perhaps even the USA soon, can you kindly advise if stools are available without a bunch of hassle?

    Thanks and kind regards.

    While I have seen people sitting in chairs at the craps tables in Vegas...it is not the norm. I would assume a special request for a chair would be honored.

    I've played craps in casinos throughout the US. Some casinos have a policy against allowing chairs at the craps table unless the player requests one and has a demonstrated (obvious) need, such as an oxygen tank, older age, walker, etc. Many casinos allow chairs at the craps table (space permitting), but it is generally up to the player to find one on the floor (perhaps from a nearby vacant slot machine, but never another gaming table) and bring it to the craps table.

    If you're young(er) and able to stand while playing at the craps table without great hardship, you should do so (while playing in the US).

    Thanks for your reply. I'm older and overweight which is why I ask. I'm simply more comfortable sitting down. It isn't a matter of being lazy. It's comfort. I read some place about one or two casino's in Las Vegas having stools tucked under the table but don't recall where I read it. Doesn't matter at the moment. Cheers and OO.

    There are stools at some casinos in Biloxi, Beau Rivage, IP, and maybe some others, no backs though, they are short enough to slide under the table. There are only 2-3 for each table, so sometimes it's hard to get one. This is one way some east coast casinos out-class Vegas, they also have trees, within sight of the casino. :)

    If your picture is any indication of the level of play you enjoy, I am sure the casinos will accommodate you! :)

    Welcome to the forum, hope you will stay around and share some craps information with us.

    I guess when you are "perfect", you can criticize any, and everyone else! Or maybe you hit the bottom of the bottle a little quicker than normal tonight, hu Snake?

    One thing some notice in the Philippines, from General McCarthey to me, is how childlike human beings can be. Lashing out in such a manner is not only childlike but sort of just plain ignorant.

    Completely uncalled for. Is there not any limits to what is allowed on here.

    Grab a chair from a nearly gaming table and drag it over and use it. What's the worse that can happen ?.....Asking is always better but.....I always ask for forgiveness, never permission.

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. The snake and the Trumpster need to work on that....to appear Presidential and fit in the "normal" box.

    When people speak on a forum for a loooong time, you can get a very good sense of their nature, character, up-bringing, and their essence......you can fool people for a while, but not after a looong time. Your words will give you away.

    But otoh, that's his opinion....

    Not that big a deal. I'm sure a world traveler like "Nok Tang" has heard stuff like this before, maybe in Jersey. :)

    At my casino they have a stool on sr/sl1 for people with reduced mobilities...which takes out the best spot to DI on most crowded nights, which makes me gun for sl2 now as I know I will get moved dunno where when a old guy shows up.

    The local casino has stools like that now. That brought them in six months or so ago.
