    Hi All,

    I'm not a high roller by any means. For the past two years I've been going to Vegas for an annual conference at Mandalay Bay. This year I was able to get the mlife tier credits. I still don't quite understand how mlife works, but I'm definitely up for a $28 weekday room at the Luxor.

    I got into craps about three months ago. I find that wincraps is the best tudor for craps; I think that it teaches the odds and bet minimums better. For example, when placing the 6 or 8, it tells you to place $6 instead of $5, for the proper 7 to 6 payout.

    Mandalay was great, but when the table minimum shot up to $25, I took off for the $5 tables at Luxor, a leisurely walk through the mall. The table was much more relaxed at Luxor. After 4 hours on a $60 investment, I left the table with $280, a $200 profit after a ten dollar tip to the dealer and stickman. I play rather conservatively; I do not do many prop bets.

    Can't wait to go again. Any advice on craps, best tables, ways to improve my game-- come vs place, would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

    Thank you,
    bryan1650t

    Welcome....
    My advice would be to play early on an empty table. The dealers will be friendly and usually happy to answer any questions. Plus you get to place at your own pace.
    Some places like PH and Excalibur seem to always have packed tables.
    Monte Carlo or Paris or the older casinos down the strip have empty tables in the morning.
    Also, bet a buck or two on the hard-ways for the dealers especially if you are picking their brains.
