    Hi all,

    On a slow week, midweek, in the early AM, would Bellagio or Cosmo have $10 craps or blackjack?

    Thanks

    I know you can find $10 at Bellagio. I believe that $15 is the lowest I have seen at Cosmo. I have heard cosmo really gets high minimums at night but usually at Bellagio you can find a decent limit table.

    Almost certainly. Haven't been to either in a while but there's still the low (handicapped-accessible) $5 BJ at Bellagio as far as I know.

    Cosmo - Early morning they have $10 BJ and $5 craps. Yes, $5 craps. I saw it several times labor day week when I was staying there.

    Bellagio - There will always be a $10 BJ table open (usually there are tons of them). I never saw a $5 table there this last trip. The handicap table was always $10. Never really looked at the craps tables there.

    I am absolutely positive that when I stayed at Cosmo in April, they had a $5 craps table running at about 10AM on a Monday morning.

    I have seen $10 on both Craps and BJ at Bellagio, but never $5

    I've played $15 craps at the B even in the afternoons on weekends.

    the major issues with these lower limit tables at such establishments is that there's usually only 1 or 2 and they are always packed for obvious reasons.

    No problem finding a $10 craps table at Bellagio almost any day of the week (unless it is a big event weekend).

    Last summer, I stayed at Cosmo midweek and found a $5 craps table. It was 9am and by 11 they had upped it to $10, but I remember being very surprised that Cosmo had a table that cheap. Of course, I was only one of three players in the entire casino playing craps at that hour, so maybe it does make sense :ssst:

    Definitely you can find $10 tables at Bellagio. I got $10 blackjack even during the NCAA tourney opening weekend this year. Craps usually $10 until mid- to late-afternoon. Not bad at all.

    Cosmo seems to have jumped to $25 minimums pretty early in the day on everything.

    Bellagio always has $10 craps tables. Always. Day, night, weekday, weeknight, weekends. They always have at least 2 $10 craps tables. We play there and at MGM because there are always $10 craps tables open.

    For some reason I can't bring myself to play at a $10 table (cheap bastard that I am, I prefer $5), yet when I'm playing at a $5 and they bump it to $10 because of the time I have absolutely no problem sticking around.

    Are you grandfathered in at $5 when they raise it to $10?

    I've never played craps in my life. But in Vegas, whenever they raise the limit on a BJ table I am always grandfathered in at the lower limit for as long as I stay at that table.

    It varies. At the very least, I have seen floor persons tell players they are grandfathered in at the lower minimum for at least one orbit around the craps. Often times, though, they will just let you stay at the same level until you leave

    I've also seen them raise the limit and enforce it immediately when there's a bigger player there and he's getting annoyed by too many players. it effectively thins out the table to a more reasonable level.

    I was talking about the craps tables, I heard they went up to $50 to $100 at night but I have not seen it.

    I have not seen it either. They usually raise their lowest minimum to $15, but I have never seen the Cosmos tables all $50 and up

    thank you all for your comments.

    Is there a website that tracks such things?

    Normal limits to expect?

    Its a bummer to walk all the way in sometimes to not find the table you are looking for.

    Not that I am aware of. Plus, the site would be ever changing, since casinos change their table limits throughout the day. But if you are looking for a $10 craps table midweek daytime (I think that was your original post) you should be fine at Bellagio and probably fine at Cosmo. And if that is somehow inaccurate, there is always Ballys, Paris, and Planet Hollywood across the street that always seem to have $10 tables (and oftentimes $5 tables as well)

    I've never been to Bellagio EVER where they didn't have multiple $10 craps tables open. Days, nights, weekends, weekdays...

    Thus Bellagio is my go to spot for $10 games. I'm not sure how all the CET joints across the street get away with $10 minimums during peak hours.
