    Has anyone ever heard if craps tournaments? They used to have a lot but i haven't seen any in years? Maybe we should have our own?

    I played in one at the Wynn about 6 years ago? It's interesting. There is a set amount of time period per round and once that threshold is hit, the shooter rolling the dice throws until he craps out and the round is over.

    This would definitely feed my current craps crack addiction.

    Just learned how to play craps over the last couple of trips, but never has a game been so addicting since I first stepped into the casino at the age of 21. Whenever i pass by the tables, I heard the sirens calling my name.

    That being said, craps is my evil mistress. She treats me so well and then takes it all away.... I still am learning how to bet. There are so many different ways to bet, that I have a fairly simple method. MAX LINE, ODDS, AND NUMBERS ACROSS. Easy for me to track until the evil crap out.

    And then, an evil pit critter tells me, I can even PUT bet on the come out numbers.....bastard....I'm saving that for the next trip. For some odd reason, I do the best playing at the weirdest of hours and/or flat out plastered.

    I wanna do a craps tournament. I know that you can earn an entry at the cal [I believe] in march sometime.

    My local does baccarat tournaments. I am going to try one of those soon, though I will need to look at strategy for it.

    Perfect description - so fun but can be so evil. Nothing sucks more than an ice cold dice table.

    As for tourneys...I've heard of them but never been involved in one. I think it would be awesome though.

    I'd never really heard of, or seen one in any casino, but I just got this from Paris. I do love throwing bones, but I can't make this. I'd give one a shot if I was already in town though.

    Also, after getting the email this Chapelle Show skit was the only thing I could think of. NSFW

    I was thinking about going but the format isn't great. It's based on 288 players. The top 24 get freeplay.

    Yea, not great odds there. Knowing most craps players though I bet it world be a lot of fun. Generally nothing like the stoic slot warriors in those tournaments.

    I got the same mailer, first I've ever gotten for craps....wish I could make it.... I think it would be a ton of fun...If nothing else, I would have fun making all those long shot prop bets that I shy away from when I'm betting my own real money...Come on @newmans , go for it so you can tell us how it was :p:D:)

    The $100k prize pool is based on 288 entries.

    RULES:

    At random a guest will be determine the “roller” and if they crap out- it will move to the next person to roll the dice. Dice will be rolled 20 times. Highest chip count at the end of the 20 rolls is our advancer.

    Chip count start is $1,000, min bet is $25 with no max bet

    The format isn't very enticing to make a special trip for it

    Wow....I hadn't read as far the Rules.... I agree, that format doesn't sound like all that much fun, seems kind of a strange way to do it... Oh well, maybe they'll do some more of these and one will coincide with a future trip....

    Downtown Grand is having a craps tournament at the end of August. I wish I could make it. Originally had plans to be there that weekend but life happens.

    It’s a part of their “king of the casino” promotion. There’s 3 tournaments, craps blackjack and slots.

    Yeah, I remember one of the people here described a craps tournament they were a part of (golden arm tournament or something ... perhaps it was craps_player).

    But I haven't seen too many of those on the strip recently. I would love to try participating in one of those.
