So a lot of you have seen these and have played them, it seems the minimum is around $2-$5, can someone please post what the max bet is and if there is a table max like some of the roulette machines.

I'm interested in playing these but only if they are worthwhile similar to a tables.

The odds, I think, are limited to 2X or 3X on a lot of the machines, and the field only pays double on a 12, not triple. But the basic play and pays are about the same.

I prefer being able to throw dice and play with the chips. I think (for me at least) it's probably more profitable to use the Bubble Craps machine as I'm a pretty regular tipper at the live tables, so I'm thinking I'm probably saving about $20-$30 an hour if at the machines, but it's still not worth it for me.

I like the craziness and ritual of traditional craps.

There are two different games:

Rapid Craps: this is the game with the craps table and the betting terminals. Players actually get to throw the dice and a dealer stands there and enters the roll results in the computer. Bill's is the only place that has this and the mins are $5 and max bet I believe (but not 100% sure) is $100

Shoot to Win Craps: this is the one in the pop-o-matic bubble with the dice that bounce. I took a photo of the betting terminal of the one at Excalibur and it says the minimum bet is $2 and max bet is $250 (I can post the screen shots if you want to see what they look like)

I played Shoot-to-Win at NYNY yesterday. $2 minimum, $250 max, 5x odds.
(I noticed that the minimum over at MGM was $5)
I bought in for $100, and played $5 pass/$10 odds, an occasional $5/$10 Come bet, and placing 6/8. Occasionally I threw singletons at C&E, and Hard 6/8.

I worked my way up to about $165 ... went cold to a point that all I had was $5/10 on point-8, and a $6 place on 6, and a buck apiece on hard 6&8. Hit the hard-8, and worked by bankroll back up. Eventually cashed out at $345.

Default "bubble craps"?!

The picture of the giant dice made me actually LOL. How funny/goofy is that? Might as well play the fake craps in California where the dice are linked to cards (A thru 6) that determine the number. I dont think Ill ever play those, would rather play the traditional tables. Will be there this weekend, cant wait!!!
