1st trip to RENO,some info please

Hello all.February will be the first time my wife and I will be going to Reno.Getting really tired of corporate Las Vegas.Anyway,we thought we'd stay at the Peppermill and was wondering if they have any $5 tables? Are there $5 tables anywhere in Reno? I am specifically looking for $5 craps,roulette,and blackjack tables.Thanks.

Well, Lower table limits are certainly easier to find in Reno than the LV strip. Like any casino town, its driven by how busy they are, and what they can get away with. Almost everybody has $5.00 (or less) during the week, even your destination, Peppermill.

Peppermill and Atlantis are stand alone properties on Virginia Street, about two miles from downtown, and about 1/2 mile apart. Being competitors, they will go after each other for your business, so expect competition for lower table mins during off-peak.

Downtown, there are an abundance of table games, and the casinos are concentrated in a rather small area. CalNeva, Harrahs, Eldorado, Silver Legacy, CircusCircus, Sands, Sienna are all in a tight grouping. I would start at the ElDorado/Silver Legacy complex, since its the center of it all, and work out attempting to find what you want in table minimums. They are connected on the second floor by a huge bridge, as is CircusCircus, so no need to go outside if inclement.

Other places are further- Nugget in Sparks, and a few smaller ones nearby. Boomtown to the west on I-80

The Indian Casino business in California has really hurt Reno now for several years. This leads to lower table mins for the customer and a pretty good value for the tourist buck in Reno. Have a great trip, and enjoy the Peppermill. It really is a wonderful property, and has everything you'll need.

Dave was pretty spot on. I'd like to add that I was at Atlantis a couple of weekends ago and they had a $3 double deck bj table going and this was early Sunday evening. It's walkable between Atlantis and Pmill, particularly now that the road construction is completed. I don't recall seeing 6:5 bj at the A or P, but I did see it downtown, so be careful about that.

Great responses! Hey, anyone been to Atlantis recently? Would love to know what their mid-week minimums are. Here's hoping its $5. Any $2 tables in Reno? I'm new to blackjack and want to learn the ropes at the low minimum tables which is a step up from video blackjack.

Not sure how outdated this is, but it might give you an idea.

Atlantis has several $5 tables midweek - single and double deck. I've seen one $3 table but I don't know what the rules are on it.

It's been a while but I know Western Village had very cheap tables ($2 craps, .25 roulette, etc) Not 100 percent sure if they still do but extremely table limits. Also The Nugget also has very low table limits as well.

Cal-Neva on the strip is generally my favorite for low limits. They do however change the rules slightly on the super cheapo tables depending on how many decks are being used.
