Thus is the case with another discovery over at Scott Roeben's "Vital Vegas" Blog, found in the archives back on May 15th, 2014. (Ed. Note: "Amazon Prime," you're not. Try to speed up the blog posts a bit, will you?) Here's the link to the actual story, but here's the "Cliff's Notes...."
If you roll a 2, 3 or 12 on the first roll, you lose your bet. A seven is a “push.” Only an 11 wins on the first roll (it pays even money).
If you roll something other than those numbers, the dealer marks the point, and you have three rolls to hit the number again. There’s a digital counter on the wall that counts down from three.
The straightforward nature of Street Dice at Downtown Grand should make it accessible to people intimidated by traditional craps, as well as those with far too much disposable income.
There’s one side bet in the game, just to keep things interesting. (Ed. Note: Besides the fact that Scott's post is over 3 years old...)
The side bet in Street Craps is called a “Brick Bet” (again, no actual bricks, and this bet must be made before the start of a roll). It pays if an established point of 4, 6 , 8 or 10 hits as a pair, or “hard way,” within three rolls. On the “come out,” or set-the-point roll, 2, 3, 5, 9 and 12 lose, as those aren’t among the four numbers (4, 6, 8, 10) that can be made the hard way. A roll of 7 loses, too. An 11 on the set-point roll is a push. A winning “Brick Bet” pays 25-to-1.
There you have it, my friends. We're looking into the possibility that this game still exists in Downtown Las Vegas... We'll let you know.
