    My casino, Maryland Live, still has $25 to $100 tables only. With the plexiglass I think it is 8 players max per table.
    They have the live shooter/video craps but it totally sucks. You only get like 14 seconds to make your bet, and the software is not that responsive. Last time I played one dude had a dispute that took about 40 minutes to resolve. I couldnt walk away as I had over $100 in bets going.
    I could play the $25s but am holding off for now, waiting for the $15s to come back. The casino says its supply and demand which doesn't hold water because they have 4-5 closed tables. Just bring some more dealers in and voila, those tables could all be filled with players, especially on weekends.

    I just go every 3 months to get a free meal and keep my comps alive.

    Guess Cris didn’t want the truth! Mr T ; I have retired the shirt with my last move. Only wore it once, did not like the reactions from personnel.

    You are a class act. Have you retired from the PO? If so, what do you do to fill your time, and are you still frequenting the Beau and Biloxi? For me, it has been over a year a half since my last trip. Not sure if I will return. It is a 7 hour drive, and for this 80 year old, short, fat, dumpy dude can be a bit difficult. I don't really miss it or the gambling, which might be a good thing.
    Take good care and be well.

    Thanks! Still at PO for the medical insurance, still do Biloxi, driving now due to transportation costs through the roof. My suggestion is fly Delta to GPT, then Uber/Lyft

    You just answer your own thread, now multiply yourself by thousands of you just like you that do as you just posted.
    Has the penny dropped yet. ?
    Now this is your new cost of doing business to get your “free meal” , with inflation added. I certainly hope it’s an all you can eat buffet to cover the cost of travel, betting, depreciation on your vehicle, laundry, and any other incidentals you and wifey may incur. I for one show a lot of appreciation to the “free meal” patrons as I’m sure many dealers this forum will also be thankful. If I’m ever in your part of the planet I hope to catch up and the next free meal is on me as my way of saying thanks for keeping the casino industry alive. Cheers.

    I am sorry; who are you answering? "Penny"?? I do not know the context of your post, Punkcity. Can you clarify or maybe DeMango can help me out.

    Mr. VonStein: There is a way to make really small bets on a $25 min. table if.......1) they have hop bets, 2) they don't get p....d and let you play, and 3) if you want to give it a shot and have some fun.

    1. $25 each on PL and Don't PL (Doey/Don't) + $1 on the 12.
    2. After the point is established, any point. hop the 7 for $3 for 5 straight rolls or until a 7 out occurs which ever comes first. The 5th roll 7 out pays you $16. If no 7 out, just stop and wait for the next hand and start again. Point conversion - stop and wait for a new hand and start again. Your losses will be minimal or a cold table will give you some wins and some really dirty looks from the dealers and pit boss. If you feel at all confident about a shooter or the table in general, you can bet (and this will take some stones) across the board including the PL odds $160 + $4 Horn. This will give you 30 ways to win and only 6 ways to lose.
    Three rolls max and bring everything down. The minimum win would be $42. You can then revisit the hopping a perhaps $6 for 5 rolls. Like I said, some of this is very risky, but doable and fun.
