    Hi All,

    I play Baccarat at Foxwoods for $50 a hand. You can touch the cards, but they are dealt from the dealer and the high bet can flip them. I am going to Vegas next week for the first time in many years and want to find the best room to play in (Ideally mlife eligible). I am staying at Bellagio, but they have $100 min bets from my research and I do not want to play the mini at $25 when you bet and dealer flips cards over. Any help or advice is appreciated.

    Thanks
    matthew

    Bellagio has midi-baccarat (touch cards) in the HL room with $100 minimum tables. Aria HL room has it also at $100 minimum.

    Thank you Riddick. I was hoping to stay at $50 a hand. Do you know of a place that offers midi at $50? Thank you.

    No nice casino has $50 min for midi. I heard downtown and Flamingo have midi at that level. I've never experienced it myself, but it's what I hear.

    Thank you very much. You have been very helpful. If I could bother you with one more question please. Do these games run 24/7 at Bellagio or only in late evening. Thanks

    They run all day, 24/7 it's vegas. In the evenings, especially weekends, it is very lively. During the day, not as many people are playing.

    I believe I've seen $50 midi games in the HL rooms at Monte Carlo and TI. It was a few years ago, though. So don't quote me on that.

    DT grand has 25 dollar baccarat that you can squeeze the cards.

    dealer will open their cards first or second, depending on your wishes.
    great fun, no one around if you want to play with friends.

    Finding a midi game under $100 is virtually impossible on the strip. I haven't seen the under $100 midi game at Flamingo for about a year and a half. At TI they have always required $100 minimum to turn the cards when I have been there.

    The following are the minimums I generally have seen and some commentary on each room:

    Tropicana - $100 minimum - not always open
    MGM - $100 for midi, occasionally $25 mini in front of mansion room. Dealers are excellent. This room gets huge action.
    Planet Hollywood - $100 minimum, $25 mini on floor. Dealers are more laid back here than other places. Never a huge crowd but usually a few players at night.
    Paris - $100 Minimum - $25 mini on floor. I have never played in their high limit room.
    Ballys - No baccarat that I know of
    Flamingo - Haven't seen games under $100 for about a year and a half. Their mini table often has a minimum of $10 or $15. I play at this mini table most trips and generally enjoy it. I have never seen big bets here.
    Quad - No baccarat that I know of
    Harrahs - $100 minimum in high limit. Mini tables on floor are usually $10 or $15 minimum. They can play midi on any games on the floor upon request.
    Venetian/Palazzo - $200 or $300 minimum I believe. I have never played in these rooms.
    Wynn/Encore - I have played in their high limit but it has been a long time. I have played their mini tables on the floor for $50 before. Dealers are very good, and action here is huge.
    Treasure Island - Had to bet $100 to play midi the past couple times I have been there. Usually just 1 table open.
    Mirage - Usually 3 - 6 tables available for midi. $100 minimum. They have $25 mini table in the baccarat lounge also. Dealers here are very good and friendly. This room has been very dead since the opening of Aria. This is my home base casino. Weekends where they have big promotions going on will fill the room up.
    Caesars Palace - $100 minimum. I find that this room is consistently the busiest on the strip for baccarat. I play here regularly every trip. Dealers are awesome. For bottled water they serve Voss in glass bottles. I love playing here.
    Bellagio - $100 minimum. This room generally always has players. I find many times in the mornings the only players will be betting huge and have high table minimums or reserved tables.
    Cosmopolitan - $100 minimum in downstairs high limit - $300 minimum in Talon - I haven't had much luck here or ever had a great experience at baccarat.
    Aria - $100 minimum - awesome room and dealers. Great environment. Always players and you will see some huge action here.
    Monte Carlo - never played here. Unsure of conditions.
    NYNY - never played in high limit. Played mini on the floor but that was about a year ago. Dealer wasn't anything special.
    Excalibur - no baccarat that I know of
    Luxor - Played mini on the floor at $25 minimum. Never played in high limit. I have never tried but been told they will open high limit table upon request. $100 minimum.
    Mandalay Bay - $100 minimum. I haven't played baccarat here, but would like to know any information anyone has on this room.

    Wynn and Encore are both $500 min on the weekends. MB is $100 min, but is always dead. It is not a good place to play.

    I saw $10 mini at Luxor about 6 months ago.

    Mandalay Bay high limit usually has two tables open, but will open up more on busy weekends. The entire high limit is usually pretty dead there. I don't mean that in a bad way. It's a change of pace from some of the bigger properties.

    As for the OP, I am not aware of any games on the Strip that will let you touch cards at $50 a hand. Your best chance may be to call Monte Carlo in advance. They have a table in there that is opened upon request and I have seen $50 BJ in the high limit. So hopefully the bac would be the same. NYNY will also open a high limit table upon request, but since BJ is $100 in their high limit, I am guessing bac is the same

    I last played at Wynn and Encore last fall and they had high limit bac on the weekend for less than $500. So either they have changed significantly or you were there at a particularly busy time. Seems to me like Wynn will up the minimums very quickly based on the number of people playing. But I have walked in there on a Saturday morning and found a $200 table

    Yes, it was during the Pac vs Bradley fight. The other time I was there was for the Angulo vs Canelo fight and the Wynn was $500 also. Hopefully, I can get a $300 table next time.

    can i ask a stupid question why does matter who turns over the cards there not going to change, i see people look at the corners , bend then , crease them , who cares , just flip them over and move on to the next hand. am i missing something .

    its not majic there are only 3 posibilities.

    and ive played both types dealer flips them and the idiots at the tables who do wierd things to them. what am i missing besides banging on the table yelling monkey with 6 other people .:poke:

    Some people enjoy extra entertainment/suspense when they gamble.

    If you rub the cards you can change the value of the cards. :wink2:

    I do it for excitement. But if I play alone I just flip it quickly

    I know it seems dumb but it is really like playing a different game. If you find a table with great camaraderie its an awesome experience. A good analogy would be when at a craps table and you have a shooter that just can't miss. The same thing happens at the baccarat table. The person turning over the cards is called the "driver". A hot driver is just like a hot shooter. Streaks will occur and a driver will pull a couple naturals in a row or consistently is pulling out winning cards. When you need to change the luck up sometimes you will go to a new driver. You aren't really changing anything but it changes the mentality of everyone.
