    Is there such a thing anywhere? I have never seen a dice table in any high limit room. Have you? I think the shear size keeps them out. Can Nate or shifter ask a hotel to put a craps table in a private parlor? Even in the sky casino in Encore where there would be room there isn't.

    the Mansion has a dice table that's usually in the back. it's open for play on busy weekends or 500k players can have it opened anytime.

    I remember seeing a vid on YouTube about Phil Ivey. They had a private room with just him, and a few friends. I think he was betting 100k+ on the pass if I'm remembering right.

    Found the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hYsCemYyGQ

    I see craps tables in high limit rooms in AC, they even have chairs sometimes. I think in general craps action there is a lot bigger. You see a dozen tables full on the weekends at a single casino and seems like much higher averages than people in Vegas betting.

    I used to play that table exclusively, one thing special about it is that they use the bigger baccarat chips, so when throwing chips around it seems more fun (heavier).

    Basically now they oftentimes don't have it reserved for anybody when it is busy, and any "known" big player can play.

    A few years back I was at the borgata playing in their high limit area. We went off to dinner and apparently Phil Ivey rolled in while we were out and played craps there. I don't remember the exact numbers but something like he quickly lost $200 or 300k pretty quickly and bounced out. Supposedly he sets himself loss limits and is good at getting out whenever he hits those...

    I've actually asked about this at Paris (out of curiositiy). The told me if someone request a craps table in High Limit, they will move a table into the area. The request has to be made in advance. I think they told me the timeline was a couple of days. The gaming commission will come in and check the table prior to play.

    I have played high limit craps at the MGM (same table shifter mentioned, used the larger chips Nate mentioned) and Bellagio (in one of the high limit rooms directly next to the little food area). I think the MGM table is usually there, but not open. Or at least I recall seeing it multiple times. The Bellagio table must have been brought in for an event, because I have only seen it back there the one time I played it

    I remember being a little shocked that they let me play on it. I assumed it was reserved for a high roller, especially since there were no limits stated on it. They may have only let me because it was dead and nobody else was playing.

    Would love to see Wynn bring in a craps table to a parlor! Hint hint.. Or even move one into the upper deck in the high limit room up on the riser. You know, above the "B" bar.. Anyone have some pull?

    I played the Bellagio one as well, now that one is truly in a private room, so you will not have the public looking at your roll, whereas the one in the MGM Mansion there's people all around. Especially annoying when somebody is yelling for a 3-sider seven at the baccarat table haha....

    A Natedog hosted VMB craps session would be epic. Although he might not let some of you don't players bet against him.

    That's a given, why have a private table if you can't get everybody to root for one side?

    Very true. A couple lurkers watched quietly the one time I played at MGM. But at Bellagio, I was the only player in the room. and I only found the table by accident because I was trying to use a different door to get out of the room with the food

    yeah I was surprised about that too the first time. what did you play at? I've always assumed $100 or higher and never had an issue, but not sure if you could go lower.

    They quoted me $100 and I played a little higher than that. I assumed it was going to be yellow chip and higher. It was last September during the Mayweather fight weekend. The crew seemed happy to finally have something to do
