    Is it "real" craps, where the players throw the dice and the outcome is decided by the dice roll?

    As opposed to the California Indian casino craps, where the dice roll determines which card is pulled to show an image of two dice.

    I think I figured it out, and it's "bubble machine" craps, where the players do not handle the dice.

    Yes, it's bubble craps and functions like in Vegas.

    But ironically their VP doesn't behave like Vegas because slots and VP are technically virtual pull tabs and reels or poker cards just technically display your win. For slots, this method doesn't really matter because there is no strategy involved and the pull tab pool is designed to have similar probabilities to a slot machine One good thing...90%+ payback is mandated in NY racinos -the highest in the country.

    But for video poker strategy is tossed out the window. Hold all garbage and you still might win via some "Bonus" or a "genie" who will change your cards to a winning hand. And these games often show deceivingly high paytables if they played like vegas (99%+), but the probabilities of the hands have been shifted slightly to the lower end, so it pays closer to 92% like most of the slots. Total bullshit if you ask me. But the antiquated laws currently require this method of play for machines that are not e-table games.

    You're okay with your original question though, unless you physically wanted to throw the dice of course. :( But there's always vegas for that!
