Just got back from a 5-day Vegas trip, where I hadn't been since I was 8. My brother got married and 22 of us went to Vegas with them.

Anyway, when I had been in casinos before, I always screwed around with the slots and video blackjack. Never was into card games or gambling much. I don't even know how to play Poker.

Anyway, this time I picked up a book on Craps, and supposedly Craps and Blackjack have the best odds so I tried to play Craps at our hotel (New York New York). What a riot! While I lost $50 in about 5 minutes playing "real" blackjack, I made about $100 an hour playing craps, and it was fun as hell.

Now I need to get up to Blackhawk here in Colorado to play some more. Fun stuff.

No craps in Blackhawk? Why not? That sucks. The Blackjack in Vegas was $5 or $10 min bet and the craps was the same.

The funny thing is I think my damn brother was psychic or something. Every single time, without fail, he said he felt a field bet coming on we'd hit. Our last hit we threw $100 a piece on the field, and of course hit. He only lost this call once. Hell, I quit placing odds bets and just played the passline and field, in addition to my 8 come bet which seemed to work well. What a fun-ass game.

bhawk has a $5 bet max. craps doesn't work well with that limitation. save your $$ for vegas. slots are for losers and old people.
