    The ALL is my favorite bet in ALL of gambling. I know that even at a 175:1 payout the HA is significant, but this bet has the rare combination of (1) potentially lasting a long time with increasing drama, (2) long odds, and (3) the (false) feeling of control (especially if you are shooter). But now that I have played this bet (and won) at 175x odds at Cosmo, Aria and elsewhere (I hit it in Puerto Rico once), I find it hard to enjoy (I.e. justify to myself) playing at 150x, as is now the case at MLife properties and Cosmo.

    Are there any casinos on the strip still offering this bet at 175x?

    Some of the TR joints did when I was there earlier this year but it is possible they have updated.

    Perhaps someone else can comment on TI or Trop

    Yeah at 34/175/34 it was a pretty high HA. And then they screw with it, 30/150/30. No thanks. My local casino has 34/175/34. And they have no competition.

    Update: I read somewhere else that the Flamingo had refelted and gone to the lower pays since I was there last, but someone else will have to confirm since I'm not back in LV until the end of the month.

    Early May the CET's properties we visited that had the ATS still had the better (not saying good) payouts. Harrahs, Flamingo and I think Bally's had it (Bally's may have had the fire bet).. Caesars had it in February but we didn't go there this time. Cromwell has the fire bet and PH has the repeater bet.

    Are you sure that you won't throw a buck or 2 on it if your playing at a table with 150x.

    i'd begrudgingly throw a $5 each on short/all/tall even with the lowered odds
    if it's going to hit, you'll be making money along the way anyway

    Don't tempt him! Lol

    The new paytable has just as crappy odds as the fire bet does now!

    I will of course still play a buck or two at the lower odds, down from my regular $10-15.

    I'll give Harrah's or Bally's a try on my upcoming trip and report back. Thanks!

    I was there there the end of April and I think it was changed at CET properties. I know it was at Golden Nugget and Golden Gate. Hopefully I am wrong.:beer:
