"Craps is a game of camaraderie," says Tosha Tousant, the casino's director of table games. "The majority of the customers bet on the pass line, where they are wagering on the shooter's luck factor."

Each player bets on the dealer, the players or a tie. Four cards are dealt face up: two for the dealer and two that all players share. Add the numbers on the cards together and the closest to nine wins.

Blackjack offers good odds and is easy to learn. "Some players will watch how the others play and comment on what decisions they make. Hindsight is always 20-20 in blackjack," says Tousant.

Roulette carries the promise of a huge payout in a short amount of time. "You're playing numbers, betting on colors and playing rows of numbers," says Horseshoe dealer Lori Longo.

Each player gets three cards face down. The dealer gets three cards face down. Like your hand? Bet equal to your ante. Don't like it? Fold and lose only your initial bet.
