    Going with a group of friends and none of us are big gamblers. We just want to go and have fun. I know Downtown is known for being a bit more friendly for the casual gambler, but are we talking about $5 roulette? $1 roulette? Never been downtown so I don't know what to expect.

    Thanks!

    Main Street Station has $5 craps with 20X odds.

    Also $1 margaritas & $1.75 craft beers at the main bar.:beer:

    Also, I highly recommend the 777 Brew pub inside Main Street Station for lunch or happy hour 3-6 M-F.

    Downtown is definitely more friendly to the casual gamer. Have fun!

    I wanted to start an ongoing thread that listed the table minimums, but there was no way to edit my post to keep the list up to date. (not sure why)

    I think this would be a great resource for people that want to play at a $3 blackjack table or $1 roulette table. Unfortunately, table rates change and just because this info in this thread is accurate now, doesn't mean that someone going to Vegas in December can rely on it.

    Fremont has been offering $3 craps and blackjack 24/7 for quite some time now. At least a year and a half that I can vouch for.
