    One table. There were two decent rolls, but they didn't move mountains. It was a slow bleed. One don't bettor did well. Table hated him! Lol!

    This kid had amazing discipline. $25 DP, small odds bet, and nothing more. I give him credit. Couple guys were bitching about him, and I said, "he's the smartest guy here!"

    I am not a fan of "don't players" either but some days they are the smartest ones!

    This month due to work/bills etc, this is the least I have been to "The Pot" to play Craps in about a year. Only 2 trips this month.....Any other trip reports?

    Leaving work shortly for a quick trip to the "Pot"......I have been away for a month and I am hoping on a Wednesday night for some $5.00 tables. Buy-in will be $140.00. I have not had a really good Craps day at the Pot in several months. I am hoping that tonight will change that pattern.........

    Just found this thread. I'm also an on the border flat-lander...FIB as my classmates at UW called me. LOVE Potawatomi...nice clean casino, usually not too crazy. The smoke can be an issue, but it didn't look doesn't bother me too much.

    I played craps at Potawatomi for the first time back in February... I've mostly played BJ and Pai Gow in the past. Not sure why...craps is my go to game in Vegas. Funny story on how I even played in the first place. My wife and I were there on a Sunday night and she's playing video roulette. I had already burned through like $100-200 in like 2 hours so I was taking a break. As you know, the video roulette is right next to the craps tables. So, as she's playing I start watching this guy go on a roll at the craps table. So, of course, I wander over and as soon as he makes his point I put down a $10 pass line bet...nothing else. Guy hits a 7 right off the bat. So I press and he establishes a point. Lay down odds and sure enough, he hits it like 2-3 rolls later. As soon as he was done rolling, I picked up my chips and left. Made maybe $50-60. Went and grabbed a beer, watched my wife play roulette, and eventually found myself back at the table. The original guy was gone, but the table was still hot. This time, the dice made it around to me and I shot for a while. Again, for me...nothing crazy: pass line, double odds, $1 on the hard-ways ($2 if the point was even). I was as consistent as possible and I stayed disciplined. Every time I sevened out, I walked away for maybe 20-30 min. Grabbed a beer, hit the head, back to the table, start over again. I probably did this 3-4 times and ended up +$500 for the night. It was a good time...the dealers were cool. As I said, I was consistent so when I forgot to re-place some bets (did I mention the beer??), they always helped me out and reminded me.

    I haven't been since February. I'm itching to get back as a kinda warm-up for my Vegas trip in early June. I really want to check out the poker room. I've played poker ever since my college days...always at someone's house with friends, never in a casino. I think I'm a decent poker player...I'm curious what the crowd is like in the Potawatomi poker room. Anyone here ever play there?

    My trip last week was good. Bought in at $120.00- $5 table and cashed out 75 minutes later with $240.00- exactly double. Best "win" at the Pot in a while. 2 guys rolled a combined 6 points but threw some numbers in between. After 3 quick "7 outs", I walked away!

    Might be my last trip until maybe around the end of the month.........

    Played at Potawatomi tonight, craps had four tables all of them $5 tables on a Saturday, until about 6pm when mine went up to ten. I played for about 6 hours, was up as much as $200, ended up losing about $200, couple really good shooters, hit one small in the 6 hours that was it on the bonus, I rolled terrible, should've passed on all my rolls lol, for 6 hours, a lot of beers, and only losing $200 it was a good time. Good vibe at the table today from the other players and dealers. Hopefully I'll be back at the end of the month.
