It’s no secret that everything in Las Vegas is getting more expensive by the day. That logic goes for meals, shows, ancillary fees, and of course, gaming limits. Nowadays on the Strip, it is rare, if not impossible, to find a cheap craps table with most minimums starting at $10-$15 during non-peak times.
With more and more casinos pricing out low rollers, where can you find cheap craps in Vegas? We’ll dive into a number of casinos that offer the lowest minimums in Las Vegas below.
A good rule of thumb is that the further you get from tourist centers like the Strip and Downtown, the cheaper minimums become. We also recommend hunting for cheap tables mid-week or early morning when player demand is lower.
Please note that table minimums are fluid and can change at a moment’s notice. We will certainly do our best to keep this list updated, but also recommend calling or checking with the property to ensure there are no surprises before stopping in.
Cheap Craps on and Near the Las Vegas Strip
Although no properties on or near the Strip offer games with low minimums, both OYO and Ellis Island offer $5 tables. Both of those properties are a short walk or ride from resorts on the Strip.
Unfortunately, $5 minimums are almost non-existent at casinos directly on Strip at this point, with most posting minimums in the $10-$15 range.
Cheap Craps Downtown Las Veags
No properties downtown currently offer minimum bets on craps below $5, however, $5 tables are common. Whether playing craps, roulette, or blackjack, downtown is a better option for players looking for low limit gaming than the Strip.
If struggling to find a $5 table, try casinos a few steps away from the Fremont Street Experience like El Cortez, Downtown Grand, The Cal, or Main Street Station. Those properties specifically are known for offering $5 games, even during peak times.
Cheap Craps Away From the Strip
Jerry’s Nugget is popular for low table game limits and offers a $3 minimum craps game 7 days per week.
Joker’s Wild is a short drive from the Strip in Henderson offers some of the cheapest craps in Vegas at a $1 minimum bet Monday – Thursday, and $2 minimums on Friday – Sunday. UPDATE: Table games at Joker’s Wild are temporarily closed.
In addition to the sub-$5 minimum bet options above, the vast majority of locals casios away from the Strip and Fremont Street offer $5 tables.
Alternatives to Consider
Bubble Craps: Found in almost every Las Vegas casino at this point “Shoot to Win” craps, or bubble craps, mechanically pops real dice inside of a plastic bubble instead of using a live dealer. These electronic craps games usually offer a lower required minimum bet, in the $3 – $5 range, than their live dealt counterparts.
