Thread: Table minimums

  1. #1

    Default Table minimums

    I,m going to LV on 9/20/05. Last year, I noticed a lot of the strip casinos have increased their table minimums to $10. Are there any strip casinos that still have a $5 minimum? If so, could you name a few? Also, may I assume that the downtown casinos (especially the Golden Nugget) still have $5 tables?

  2. Default Betting Limits

    Hello Shooter,

    Table minimums tend to be a fluctuating thing. The time of year, the time of day, the day of the week, the game you are playing, the number of people in the casino and how much they are betting all affect the limits. All that being said, the best places to find $5 tables would be at the North end of the strip in the late morning hours (i.e., 7:00AM- 10:30AM) on weekdays. That is a general statement, however. I have also seen $5 Pai Gow and blackjack at the Luxor on weekdays as well.

    Default minimums

    as of a few months ago, center strip hotels with smaller minimums: Imperial Palace, casino Royale, Flamingo, Barbary Coast

    Weekends, pariticularly weekend nights, the minimums go up at many places, but during the daytime on weekdays, many casinos have $5 tables

    Be careful about the 6:5 blackjack many now have

    have fun

    Tabel minimums seem directly related to crowds. Busy times/big crowds equals higher minimums. My husband and I were in Vegas over Memorial Day. We were unable to gamble at our own hotel (Harrahs's) due to the high ($10 and up) table minimums (even during the day!). That being said, we did find plenty of five dollar tables both on and off the strip. Off the top of my head...

    On Strip (centrally located)
    Casino Royale and O'Sheas are always cheap. They are also dingy and smoky.
    Bally's
    Imperial Palace
    NY NY
    Aladdin
    Paris
    MGM
    Flamingo
    Barbary Coast

    Off Strip -
    the Palms
    Gold Coast
    Hard Rock

    Downtown -
    Pretty much everywhere. I even found a $3 Let It Ride table at the casino with the 99 cent shrimp cocktails. The 302 busses are express and get you downtown.

    have a great trip -

  5. Default 5$ tables

    Hi Shooter,
    I like to play Let it Ride and there are 5$ tables at Westwardho. I stayed there in June (they comped us a very sweet deal). Hope this helps!

    Very rarely do you see a $5 table on the strip. I have never personally seen a $5 table at the GN, but I have seen them at the Golden Gate, Main ST station,the Vegas Club, and the 4 Queens. HTH.

    Cool table minimums

    Actually the Golden Nugget seemed to have a lot of $10 tables. Everything else downtown is $5 or less.

    The New Frontier on the strip has $5 tables, as do the Riviera and Circus. The Westward Ho has sub $5. The Tropicana has $5, as do Luxor and Excalibur. Barbary Coast does too.

    Off strip, try the Orleans, Palms, and Gold Coast. Also Terribles.

    They have $5 during day at IP. I've even seen it during day at MGM

    Lots of choices. You just have to look around a bit.

  8. Default Table Minimums

    I have found that many casinos still have $5 minimums (that's all I play), especially during the week. Weekends may be a problem ON the strip. If you wander off of the strip, the Orleans, Gold Coast, Tuscany, and the Silverton have a few $5 tables. The Sahara and the Stratosphere should also have some $5 tables.

  9. Default $5 tables

    The Monte Carlo still has $5 tables that pay 3:2 for blackjack. Many of the others that have $5 tables only pay 6:5 and should be avoided. Also, Bellagio has $5 tables but they will not rate you.

  10. Default

    Most casinos will still have the $5 tables although they may be hard to find. If there is an event or weekend it will be pretty much impossible at a major resort.
