    Craps is all luck, and we'll probably get 100 different answers, but let's see if any overlap..
    I'm talking about a crap table where you've either NEVER LOST, or Won more times THAN you lost...
    Narrow it down to a specific table if you'd like...

    To get this started, I'll nominate Gold Coast (the table that's parallel to Flamingo road, rather than perpendicular). I have played there many times, and I can safely say its the only table in Vegas where in have won more times than I've lost...

    Now, your turn...

    The tables on the center aisle at Caesars. I don't think I've ever lost more than $100 in a session there, and had two 35+ minute rolls on the same trip once.

    The only place that I'm probably up overall is the Golden Gate, and both big winning sessions were on the table closest to the bar and the smaller losing sessions were mostly always on the table closest to the cage.

    Now that I think about it, I believe I've only played at the Binions table that's practically on Fremont street once, and did win nearly 4x buy in.

    For me it was the Imperial Palace. Have not been back since it became the Quad.. For some reason the vibe was conducive to winning. Maybe it was the lower limits or the dealertainers, lol. On the opposite side of the coin (No pun intended), I've never won a penny at Caesar's.

    The Royale(with cheese) 2 stories

    on my 50th birthday i went there with some friends and told them when it was my turn to shoot, i was going for the 100x odds.
    bet $3 pass and threw a 6. put 3 benjamins behind the line and a $10 hard six bet. three rolls later. 3-3. :banana:

    one other time when they still had the tub, again with a bunch of friends. my "vegas wife" got the dice and me and one guy pointed to our watches...
    47 minutes later she finally seven'd out...we went from a stack of reds to a rack of green and blacks...$$$$.

    I taught my father-in-law how to play craps at our local casino (sorry to non-vegas up a VMB thread) about a year ago.

    The first time we went, we lost a little money. Then my father-in-law started doing some research on "dice control". Now as a professional actuary, and someone who is well-versed in statistics, I did not believe in this one bit, but if anyone has changed my mind, it is him. Without ever getting out of control (max $10 pass with $50 odds) he has netted about $4,000 during trips that I have accompanied him. I have never seen a man so confident in his dice roll, so much so that I have started passing my turn to him. He does the whole 'flying V' dice setup, hits the same part of the table most of the time, and evidently has a genetic aversion to rolling 7s. I'm hoping this genetic deformity was passed to my wife so she can pad our bankroll on our next trip to Vegas!

    Excalibur...have only lost once and it was only $100 and I was teaching someone how to play so I was deviating from my normal strategy.

    Last trip I turned $60 into $600 in 15 minutes pressing the field and hitting two 12s...unfortunantely I was pretty lit up and proceeded to lose it all being greedy...but hey, I have good luck just no discipline

    Lost $100 at that very table Tim.Only remember the session because I was playing with an 84 year-old friend of mine who taught me craps and made the trip to LV with me and my usual buddy I meet up with in LV or AC..I had the dice and started off well,but after a few rolls and my buddy now with a lot of action on the table,I sevened out..Shit,really wanted to hit a home run for the guy so to speak.

    My first true craps heater was a $5 table at Paris in about 2007 or 2008. I don't think I've gambled there since though. My favorite though is at The Cosmopolitan. I usually end up at the one where the stickman's back would be to Queue Bar. Though I try to get on a table with a specific crew that I like.

    Always had great luck at NYNY for some reason. Played multiple afternoon sessions and won a lot. Had a shooter hit the all small and tall!! Shot for 30 minutes straight.

    The Riv...back in the 80s... no huge wins, but a lot of little ones over the course of several trips.

    This. I always rocked the center tables at Imperial Palace, especially when a couple of specific dealers were at the table. They changed over the years, but if I saw them at a table, I'd always head that way.

    For me it is the table in the Maragaritaville Casino at the Flamingo. I bought in for $200.00 and cashed out around $1,700.00, 2 different people had insanely hot rolls. The site seeing out on Las Vegas Blvd. is pretty good on warm days also.

    Sadly I can't say I have one. Craps is incredibly hit or miss for me (as it is for most people). Like the above poster said I love the one at Margaritaville but I have had some good sessions there and have been murdered in a few as well. On the flip side where I NEVER seem to have a good session is at Paris.

    I usually have to track it down as it seems to move.
    Never in the same location twice.

    Not vegas but I have had unbelievable luck in New Orleans over at least the last 10 trips

    I had a good run at the end table (closest to party pit) at Paris until my last disastrous trip

    For me it would have to be the first horizontal table paralleling the cage at Encore. I've had two monsters on that table over the years, one for 700k+ and another 600k+. Very memorable because one roll had the casino manager standing there with all the middle managers in between and was deadly silent, since I was not letting anything mess with that roll like cocktails, dealer shift changes, anything...

    The original casino at Caesars. I always make a point of stopping in at Caesars and playing either BJ or craps in the original casino dating back to the 60s. They have several tables there and at one time or another most of them have been very kind to me. In '83 a navy buddy and I were there and a guy went on a HUGE roll. I turned $100 into about $700 and my buddy turned his $100 into $5+k, pressing and pressing. It was fun to watch him win a pile of money. When the dude severed out my buddy had at least $1k on the layout. That was a lot of money Back in 1983 to a couple of twenty-something sailors. Good memories......

    Edit.....Just read Nate's post and I instantly felt insignificant... :nworthy::nworthy::nworthy:
