Table Games Minimums?

Has anyone been since the table games opened know what the table minimums are? I predominately play craps and like either a $10 or $15 table. All other games info would be appreciated too.

Update

I went to Maryland Live on Saturday night 4/20, was disappointed to see all blackjack and craps tables we either $50 or $100 tables. That's rediculous. Not sure if it's cause they are still new, they're the only game in town or because it was a saturday night.

What I do know is that if this is the normal for them, they won't be getting my gambling money. I'll drive to Atlantic City before I'll throw out over $300 a roll at their craps tables.

Yes, yes & yes. They're new, they're the only game in town, and it was a Saturday night. If I owned the joint--I'd frankly do the same. I have to think that in a month or two, the "normal" minimum you'll be able to find on a Saturday night will be something like $25.

Reality is that it's all about supply & demand, and human labor costs a lot more than slots and other automated gaming systems. Only when they can't fill the tables at these prices will they drop the minimums. The only concession I'd hope for is that the minimums are still $10 at the Organic Craps machines (not sure if there's automated blackjack or not).

Until the novelty wears off, it's possible you might find $10-$15 at, say, 3 a.m. on a Wednesday. Maybe someone playing in the wee small hours can provide some reconnaissance.

It's even getting hard to find $10 in AC in the wee small hours. Downtown Vegas is probably the only remaining outpost catering to low-rollers like you and me.

Went on a weeknight and found a couple of $25 blackjack tables. don't play craps so wasn't paying attention. But most of the table were $50. Few weeks ago stopped in at Horseshoe in Cleveland and found same situation.

Maybe when we have Balt City, MD Live and National Harbor all up and running the competition will make them lower the minimums.

This is why AC is still a bargain! If you have a couple days off during the week, and if you have any Points at all, you can usually get 2 nites Free at almost any of the AC casinos during the Off-Season. In AC you can find most any tables at $10 anytime. I had 2 nites free on comp at the Taj Mon-Wed last week. Plus the Taj between Resorts and Showboat are all interconnected. You don't even have to go outside, In AC at least you are staying and playing at a Real casino. If you don't know the difference, well it's no use me telling you about it anyway. Feel free to just stay here and feed MD's 2/3rds of the take they get. I have the roughly 2:45 hr drive committed to memory by now and it doesn't even feel that long to me. Since I have EZPass for my everyday commuting I don't even pay attention to the tolls. Live doesn't impress me at all especially with the crowds with their attitudes there. I'll stick to where I have Fun, that's up in AC, it isn't Here!

I was at Maryland Live a few weeks ago at 5 am on a weekday prior to dropping off a friend at BWI. The tables were practically empty-and still were $15 minimum. So I have to think you'll never see them lower than that amount.
