I went to my local Horseshoe yesterday -- played their version of bubble craps (wasn't Shoot to Win -- no one had to press any buttons to "shoot"). I'd played blackjack for a little while before and was going $100/hand on a $400 buy-in -- that I lasted for the eight hours I did amazes me, given the very high risk of ruin. I didn't feel like buying back in -- blackjack can get tiring sometimes -- but I had to wait for a buddy who was still at the BJ tables. So I parked myself at a bubble craps machine and played for a little while. My usual strategy is to bet the pass line with full odds, the inside, the hardway of whatever the point is, and a yo + midnight on the comeout (recently changed from C&E). I couldn't really bet all that much ($25 was the place limit, apparently) -- but the machine was going on for rolls and rolls and rolls before 7-ing out or hitting the point. So all I could do was just sit there and watch the place bets pay off, bit by bit. (Not complaining. Who doesn't like money?) I bought in for about $400, and cashed out at over $1000 after a half hour of play. My question is -- have others experienced long rolls by the machine? And for those who've played the machines before, how have you found the machines generally? What restrictions have you found on bubble craps machines? (2x odds -- just like the Wynn, $25 place bet limit, etc.) The machine seems less prone to a bad streak of point-sevens. It also seems great for inside/across players. I can see the casino making money off of craps newbs because they usually just bet the pass line and/or stupid prop bets, and I was probably the only person with more than $100 on the line on each roll. The machine did crap out and seven out a considerable amount, but usually with long rolls in between. It seemed like I was at least making back my initial buy-in before seven-ing out, which ... well. And yes, I know my half-hour+ experience at the virtual craps machine isn't statistically indicative of anything. And yes, it's less fun -- no hooting and hollering. Just wanted to collect anecdotes and see if others have grinded their way to decent wins on the machine. I don't think you're ever really going to get a hot shooter (and the inability to press to a significant amount means you're not going to go on a tear), but if you're looking for bankroll preservation/bankroll enhancement, even, it seems like a decent machine. Thoughts?
