    Lots of $5 tables if you walk around on a Wed or Thurs and get outside of places like Aria or the Venetian.

    in general, somewhere like the Flamingo or Excal is going to have that game.

    Last time I gambled on the strip, Harrah's had $5 tables... weekday early evening.

    Pretty consistently $10. But that game's huge betting structure makes it play way bigger than that. I have lost $200+ in minutes playing $10 a hand.

    As far as I know, UTH "table minimum" applies to the ante & blind bets only.
    I've never seen the 'Trips' bet require more than $5... but then, I've played very little UTH on the strip, so I suppose it's possible that some places apply the table minimum to the 'trips' bet.
    One UTH table that I know of has a 'progressive' bonus bet (4-Queens, downtown) at $1.
    Pays on trips or better (only pays on your two cards + the flop), with a royal winning the progressive.
    Golden Nugget has a UTH progressive bet as well, but it's $5.

    I think most of the Strip progressive jackpots are $5.
