    I am a novice at gaming and would like to know where the hotter slots are located on the strip or downtown. And I would like to try my hand at craps. Are there any $10 tables anywhere? Thanks in advance.

    If you want really cheap craps tables, take a look at Ellis Island between 5 and 7 happy hour. $3. Also Westin has the same $3 tables from 5 until 8 as well as 25 cent roulette.
    Next I'd look at Casino Royale, always a fun table and low rates unless things have changed.

    Slots on the strip have to pay for fountains and ferris wheels.
    You are better wandering even a short distance away. From the back of Bally's you can get a free shuttle to the Gold Coast or the Orleans. I'd play slots there.
    And when happy hour comes it is that same shuttle ride to the back of Bally's and right near Ellis Island or Westin.

    I'm guessing you are not that interested in downtown or Boulder Highway. Boulder has the best slots overall.

    Most casinos downtown have at least $5 crap tables. All except for the Downtown Grand and the Golden Nugget (they might have but mostly $10 minimums IMHO). The El Cortez and the Fremont have $3 crap tables also although the EC might raise their minimums to $5 when it gets busy or in the evenings.

    I would recommend you going to those casinos that give free craps lessons so you can learn the basics of playing craps before playing. It can get intimidating for the newbie on busy tables, you don't have much time to ask questions so best to take lessons and ask all the questions you can think of before you start to play.

    If you're on the strip, I know NYNY and MC (and I'd imagine MGM, Excalibur, and Luxor as well, if not all M life properties) offer craps lessons (if memory serves, it's from 11 AM to Noon), and they open a $5 table immediately after. Otherwise, $10 tables are pretty easy to find in the mid-low tier properties on the strip.
