    Last I knew, the best place for this was Fremont Street. There's a casino called Golden Gate that we went a few years ago (they're known for having $0.99 shrimp cocktails) that was $3 until about 5:00 p.m., then they went up to $5. It may have raised a bit since then.

    Go to the old strip or old downtown. Where they have the lights over the street.

    Anything that cheap is going to be downtown.

    Freemont can be really fun for gambling.
    Cheaper bets downtown or otherwise out of the way. Also check off-hours. Some of the big casinos will go down to $5 really late or during the day.

    I hated gambling on Fremont St., I felt like I was surrounded by impending death with all the gamblers on their last legs. The strip has such a better atmosphere.

    Re: Cheap Craps....

    Bills Gambling Hall is your best bet on the strip. It's the old Barbary Coast. Great location and pretty low minimums. Not sure if they ever go to $3, but they are usually $5 other than during peak times.

    $3 craps is fun, but I recommend you go on a six hour bender at the Mirage playing pai gao with 4-5 of your closest friends.

    Re: Cheap Craps....

    Casino Royale has the cheapest table minimums on the strip, IIRC. Plus $1 MGD pints at the bar. However, you definitely can tell it's a cheap place to play - last time I was there, the craps table had scotch tape over a tear in the felt and the dealer was working the tear over trying to make it bigger...

    Re: Cheap Craps....

    My cheapest favorite place used to be the Boardwalk or O'Sheas, not sure if either exist anymore, I think the Boardwalk got blasted a while ago.

    Don't worry about the minimums, just look for this guy and you will be set.

    We had a BLAST playing $2 craps at the Golden Gate a few years ago. Even with the low minimum there were a few of us up BIG... Until Soccercy showed up. Watch out around him, he's a cooler.
