Table Minimums

Any idea what kind of table minimums we might see on a Sunday afternoon? Thanks.

I am no expert on this subject, but you should easily be able to find $5 tables. I have never seen anything lower.

We didn't see anything lower than $5 this past Sunday, but didn't go in every Casino.

It really is a supply and demand situation, if the casino is getting too crowded, they raise the minimum amount to play.

Some general stuff based on my personal experiences.

They don't go below $5 minimums unless there is some type of special promo. Of course, they have tables with higher limits even at slow times to allow people who are willing to spend more have seats available. Then when the $5 tables are getting close to full, they will raise the limit, usually to $10, and FYI, anyone at the table can still bet the $5 minimum until they stand up and leave.

So look around, sometimes they place the low limit tables up front to give a feel of a busy place, sometimes that are in the back to hide them and try and get you to play the higher limits. So check out the entire casino and decide if it is the right place for you, or decide to take your money elsewhere....

LOL! There aren't too many places in Lake Tahoe to take your money elsewhere!
