Hey everyone! I NEVER enter the gaming forum's because I usually go to Vegas for the show's, nightlife, pools, and resturants. But this trip my husband and I decided we are going to play some craps. We got a book and read it. I think we understand Pass Line and Come line Bets as well as the odds bets that go along with them. We've aslo played on some online craps games. But we'd like to start out with some low minimum tables to get used to the lingo and fast pace of the tables.
We will be staying at the Bellagio (it's our first wedding aniversary)and I realize that's probably not the best place for us to play our first craps game. We will be there from a Friday afternoon through a Tuesday morning in April. Where can we go on the strip for some of these low minimum tables. I thought that $5 min tables were as low as it get's, and then I read about a $1-$3 min. table in another thread, but no one said where you can find those!
And the Nurses will Unite!

My dad & my husband played craps for the first time at Bellagio--they had a blast Didn't know what the heck they were doing at the time, but they were playing on $5 tables I think. Many places will have $5 tables during the day.

For lower limits on the Strip, try Imperial Palace, Boardwalk, Casino Royale--basically, the "cheaper" the hotel/casino in general, the better your chances of finding low limit tables on the main part of the Strip. As you head north (to the cheaper casinos) you might have more luck. Again, even those casinos will raise the limits at night and especially on weekends. Off-strip is a good option too--my first time (at craps ) was at Orleans--they had $2 tables.

Try Casino Royale I think they have $2 tables there. Nothing fancy about the place but low limits. Might be a good place to start. I played my first craps game at TI years ago on a $5 table and the dealers were very helpful. Good luck it can be a blast especially if someone at the table gets on a roll.

Possibly the funnest craps table in town, IMO, is the one out front of Slots-A-Fun, up by Circus Circus. $1 min, 2x odds maximum, it's low-roller for sure, but fun. Casino Royale is often fun, but also often crowded, since it's a low limit oasis in a sea of $5 tables. Orleans is fun, perhaps not as crowded, decent dinner options, you can get there on a free shuttle from Barbary Coast.

Downtown is an excellent option all around. Good dinner options, the light show overhead, a relaxed atmosphere, and lots of low limit games. $2 craps at the Plaza, $3 at several other places including Las Vegas Club, Fitzgeralds, Golden Gate. Depends on how busy they are, peak times will drive table limits up, of course.

Start by sticking to your passline bet with whatever odds you're comfortable with (and table allows) and add a come bet if you get in the groove. Have fun!

Great suggestions by everybody, but I can verify that Bellagio does, at times have $5 tables. I've played them. So does the Venetian. Now they won't have them at nights, but it looks like you'll be busy doing other things during that time - shows, etc.

You just have to check them before heading out to play elsewhere. It's always fun to play at the Casino you're staying at.

If you have car, head out far southwest towards Henderson for Joker's Wild. They have .50 cents craps.

A good place to learn is at the Sahara. Low limits and great dealers!

Slots-o-Fun's craps table. It's RIGHT inside the entrace, so you have a great view of outside the building, and drink service is pretty good. $1 min with 2x odds. Dealers can be newbies sometimes and slow the game down, but generally they're great. Expect the table to be crowded on weekends since it's in a busy location and easily accessable.
