235 Stud

235 Stud is available exclusively at Plaza. It combines two-card, three-card, and five-card poker hands. The player must bet on all three. There are two optional side bets. The hand is paid based on its strength. There is no dealer hand. The minimum bet per stack is usually $5.

3 Card Blitz

3 Card Blitz is a point game. Aces are worth 11 points. All other cards have a blackjack value. The player and dealer receive 7 cards after an ante is posted. The highest point value in a suit is what plays. If the player wishes to stay in action against the dealer, an amount equal to the ante must be raised. This game is dealt at Sahara. The minimum bet is $10.

Big Wheel

Big Wheel, also referred to as Big 6 or Wheel of Fortune, is available at two Las Vegas casinos as a live game. More have digital versions. The minimum bet is usually $5 or less at live Big Wheel tables. It is often found near casino entrances.

While live big wheels have been decreasing in number, they are available at many electronic table game stadiums. Most big wheel games are auto-play. The wheel spins automatically while a camera shows the results on the large screens and players’ gaming screens. The video version works similarly but has fewer player seats. It also only offers one game.

Casino War

Casino War is slowly disappearing in Las Vegas. It is a simple game where one card is dealt to the player and dealer. The player wins by beating the house and loses when the dealer wins. Ties either lose half the bet or go into a war where the player doubles the bet to save the original one. The same rules are applied after a war except that another tie pays the player 2/1.

DJ Wild

DJ Wild is dealt at Harrah’s and Flamingo on the Las Vegas Strip. The game uses a 52-card deck with a joker. It is wild along with the deuces. The player and dealer each receive five cards after an ante and blind are made. The player doubles the ante to play or folds all bets. The blind bonus pays on winning hands of a straight or better. There is also an optional side bet. Both properties offer the game for $5 or $10, depending on the time of day.

I Luv Suits

I Luv Suits plays like High Card Flush. We include the two games on the same page.

Jackpot Hold’em

Jackpot Hold’em is like Ultimate Texas Hold’em. The main difference is that players see one of the flop cards before making a decision to raise preflop. The maximum raise preflop is three times. Jackpot Hold’em is found at Sahara. It has a $10 minimum bet.

Pai Gow Tiles

Pai Gow Tiles is the original version of the poker game. It is dealt at several Strip casinos and a locals one. We found $25 minimum tables at Bellagio, Palace Station, and Paris. It is $100 at Aria, Caesars Palace, Encore, and Wynn. MGM Grand removed pai gow tiles in June 2023, according to a reliable player report.

Wild Five Poker

Wild Five Poker is dealt at two Boyd Gaming locals casinos. Players make an ante and receive five cards. Deuces and a joker are wild. Players have the option of raising one to three times the wager or folding. The minimum bet is $3 at Cannery and $10 at Aliante. 

Recently lost Las Vegas table games

Do not see a table game listed above? It is possible it is one of many games that were once dealt in Las Vegas but have left the market.

Some games have been gone for a while like Cajun Stud, Chase the Flush, Double Ball Roulette, Flushes Gone Wild, Poker or Bust, and River Hold’em.

Some games never made it fully out of testing, like Casino Dominos. We spotted Flushed at The Strat, but it was gone before we could ask questions.

Criss Cross Poker

The Strat brought Criss Cross Poker back to Las Vegas in 2022. It was last seen at Linq in 2019. The first Las Vegas sighting of it was at Planet Hollywood a few years before that. Strat removed Criss Cross Poker later in 2022.

Criss Cross Poker is a popular table game on the East Coast. It has struggled in the Las Vegas market. The minimum bet is $5 at The Strat. The player receives two cards after making two ante bets. A five-card board is dealt in a plus sign. The center card is used in both directions to make a five-card hand with the player’s two hole cards.

There are three additional bets of one to three times the ante. The player may fold instead of making one of these bets. The player wins on a pair of jacks or better and pushes on a pair of sixes through tens.

Deuces Wild Hold’em Fold’em

This game was only dealt at Sam’s Town with a $5 minimum bet. It is comparable to Let it Ride with an ante and Deuces Wild. It vanished in 2022.

Keep N Straight

In March 2022, we discovered a new game at Flamingo. It vanished later that year. Keep N Straight had a $5 minimum bet. The object is similar to High Card Flush but with straights. The player’s goal is to have a higher and longer straight than the dealer.

Royal 3 Pictures

A new game was discovered at Venetian. Royal 3 Pictures has a $10 minimum bet in 2019. The object of the game is to have a higher value hand than the dealer. The more face card hands, the better, as these count as pictures. All other cards count as face value. It disappeared

Sic Bo

While there are no live Sic Bo tables in Las Vegas, a couple of electronic versions have appeared, and then disappeared. Recently added in March 2022, the heads-up Sic Bo game at Resorts World had the Australian casino pay table. This is one of the best pay tables for the game. It had a $1 minimum bet. Another Sic Bo-based game is at the Venetian. This game is a hybrid Sic Bo game with random slot multipliers. It also has a $1 minimum.

The Resorts World video sic bo disappeared later in 2022. At last check, the Venetian version moved to Palazzo.

Others have disappeared more recently. Asia Poker is no longer dealt in any Las Vegas casinos. The game played like Pai Gow Poker except that the high hand was only four cards. The extra card became the front hand. The two-card hand became the middle hand. The player had to win two of the three hands to get paid. The house won all ties on hands. The table at Gold Coast was gone before 2021 started. Paris stopped dealing Asia Poker this past year.

Super Baccarat

First seen at the end of 2020, Super Baccarat was baccarat with side bets. It is owned by Las Vegas Sands. Both Venetian and Palazzo dealt it for $15. We last saw it in 2022.

Palazzo and Venetian were the last casinos to deal Caribbean Stud. Venetian also had Prosperity 3 Pictures and  Raging Bullseye. All these games are MIA. 

Ricochet Poker recently ended a short run at Binion’s. Brief appearances were made by Deuces Wild Hold’em at The D, Four Card Frenzy at Santa Fe Station, and La Paire at El Cortez. Heart Attack was dealt at the Palms prior to the pandemic, but the game did not return upon reopening. Three Card Prime left The Strat in 2022. It was replaced by Three Card Poker, which is a similar game.
