    The last time I came into town to play big baccarat, I found it for $100 at Caesars in the Palace Court. Every other venue (of which there were not many) seemed to want $200 to $500 to start - does anyone have recent experience as to the minimums on the big tables? Hopefully Caesars still deals it at $100...

    On the weekends the big table is open in at the Rio according to some of the dealers I spoke with last time I was there.

    It's been a while since ive been there but the big table at Caesars was $100 in their high limit room.

    Used to have it at Bellagio for $100, but I think it is gone for good now

    Unfortunately they took it out in January for good.

    The only casino I know of that has it on the strip for $100 is Caesar's. Heard rumors about Rio, but never played over there.

    I just got a confirmation from Caesars that they're dealing it regularly at $100 in the Palace Court. Looks like they've earned my action yet again. :)

    This broke my heart last time I was in town. I walked in, expecting to play with the same dealers who always man that table (and if you're familiar with the Bellagio Bacc room, you know who I mean), and saw the table completely gone. That's a major element of my Vegas experience that's been annhilated.

    I've never seen it at Caesars, but I look forward to checking it out this week. Is there any other Big Bacc table anyone's aware of? (Under 500 of course)

    I was in vegas this past weekend. The rio does have it and pitboss said they open it around 8pm. Bellagio no longer has it which is where i stayed. I played in the mansion at mgm and they had one in one of the private rooms but was not open. Pitboss told me they hardly use it. I know last time i was at caesars, they had 2 big tables. Hope this helps.

    I'd love to get the big table bacc experience sometime, but even $100 is way out of my league. I remember Pass Line Man telling me about a place (in another city) that dealt big table at $25, but I can't remember where.

    Chicago Horseshoe. It's been a good year since I've been there but the table was there last time I was. It's not always open so if making a special trip you may want to call first.

    Awesome. Chicago is A weekender for me, so that could work out great. I'm just not sure how much money I want to pump into CET now that I feel more at home with MGM.

    Just an FYI, the "Chicago" Horseshoe is actually in northwest Indiana (Hammond), and there's no hotel at this property. There are places to stay that aren't too far from the casino, but it's a pretty sketchy area. Plan on staying in downtown Chicago (its only about a half hour drive, and there are numerous shuttles that run between the casino and various points in the city).

    The Rivers Casino on Des Planes has a Big Bacc table that I've seen for as low as $15. Usually $25 though.

    It's a pretty nice property. Not Vegas nice but compared to the other casinos in the area.

    Grosx2 is correct, no hotel there but ameristar is just 5 min away and they have a pretty nice hotel.

    I'll probably stay in the city or with family in the western suburbs and take a trip out there for a while one day.
