    Does anyone know if they brought the LIR tables back to Aria?

    I was out in March and they didn't have a single LIR table in the casino. I had to go over to MGM for my fix.

    Also, does anyone know why they took them out? I heard a number of different stories when I was there.

    Thanks.

    I had my friend trying to play this at aria yesterday. The dealer I asked told us that they have been gone for two years without plans to bring it back. I found it at Cosmo and then bellagio as well, and the b has it right next to their main entrance. Monte Carlo probably has it too but I didn't confirm.

    Thanks for the info. I am still trying to figure out why every other MGM property has it but Aria does not.

    If anyone knows why they took it out, I am still curious. I have been told a number of different things and none of it makes since. I was also shocked to hear that it was been gone for 2 years. When I was in there in March, 2 of the hosts thought it was still on the floor.

    My guess would be that LIT does not drop as much as the other carnival games like, 3CP, Crazy4, and UTH.

    That was one thought but I am not sure. The table was always busy and with the 3CP option, it can drop a good bit. I was told they had some sort of scam on the table and pulled it for that reason but I am not sure that is right either.

    It wasn't mechanical like the Caribbean Stud tables so it wasn't pulled for that reason as CS was.

    I just find it strange that only the Aria pulled and they only had one table. I could see moving from multiple tables to one but eliminating it just seems wrong.

    I didn’t realize that Mississippi Stud had made it to Vegas. Is there anyway to find out which casinos have it now?

    I have seen MS at PH, Harrah's, Paris, Mirage, MGM. I am sure it is at many more casinos on the strip too, but I just haven't been paying attention to that game, so cannot say for sure on the other properties.

    Add Margaritaville to the list. Played it there last weekend (and got crushed...)

    Mississippi Stud has been in CET casinos for over three years now I believe. Most of their properties have tables - Bally's even has two. So does Paris - one in the main pit and another in their dancer pit. Most of them are set at $5 limits around the clock, but during prime time the tables at PH and Paris I have seen at $10.

    Thanks. I guess that shows how much I play at CET properties in Vegas.

    I'm not a frequent gambler but played this one night locally and had a blast so started reading up and practicing before our trip. First night I was about even (+/- $100) before dinner and went back for round two after we finished eating and had a few drinks. Got up about $250 and bumped my first bet to $40 (fueled by booze no doubt) and drew a pair of 7s and tripled the bets for 3-5th street. Got a third 7 on 3rd street and won $1200. Gave the dealer $50 and headed to the bar to avoid giving it all back....

    Lost at Mville the next night and then started playing LIR (learning it on the fly) which is less volatile and allowed us to play a long time and have fun without the extreme swings.

    Think LIR is what we liked a bit more, but obviously can't complain about MS !

    Saw it at Bally's last year too.

    I think LIR left some casinos because it was a slow game. That's how my friend introduced it to me, he said that the money lasts quite a while on it and they shuffle between every hand. He thought it racked up his comps pretty well while playing because of the duration between hands along with a high hand $ avg.

    It is a slower game but I think it is about the same hands per hours as most of the carnival games sans 3CP which moves a little faster. LIR definitely racks up comps but I am pretty sure it is more about the house edge than speed. The average bet in LIR helps but can differ from casino to casino. Most MGM properties rate at 1.5 times the last spot bet (as that is the only one at risk), however MB at one point was rating at 2x the single spot bet. Haven't played there in some time but I doubt it is the same anymore. Calculating the average bet size on any of the carnival games can range since there a many optional bets on the table.
