Rapid Craps is a new way to play craps and not an illness from bad Chinese food. The name gives giggles and is too easy to poke fun at. I’ve never seen the game, but thanks to Five Hundy By Midnight I had a few chuckles about Rapid Craps. The game wasn’t in Atlantic City when I was there a few weeks ago, so consider this a Vegas exclusive.
I love craps and rapid craps is the newest in a line of “Rapid” games from Shuffle Master. As described in the press release:
Rapid Craps™ combines a traditional craps table and live dice throwing with up to 20 touch-screen betting terminals. By automating many of the game’s elements which make it costly to operate, Rapid Craps increases game productivity and security.
I don’t really like roulette, but the redeeming quality of the game is the social interaction between the players. I fear that Rapid Craps would do the same for the game – especially with room for 20 players. Something doesn’t jive here with me. I will look at this game and probably stay away. If that changes on my next trip I’ll let you know.
