No. They might have offered that minimum bet probably at the same time dinosaurs were still roaming the earth

Mint casino used to offer a 3 minimum only during daytime hours. I don`t know if they still do it. They are mainly CSM`s anyway but do have a shoe game where that min bet was applicable (at certain hours)

Give them a call and ask if they still do it?

You could always take a chance with the 5 min games but if you have a small bankroll your ROR is large.
You can still play a slightly positive EV game with a lower spread at some particular places.

But why not just wong? If you have- lets say a 1K bankroll, just play the shoe games when it is busy and only play the positive counts- even flat betting might net you some good results.

This is probably your best option to enlarge your bankroll.

Actually, it's 2. Plus it's a 4-decker. I think they still do it; I haven't been in a little while.

The hours were 4pm-8pm, if I remember correctly. But often I used to find the one table with a shoe to be empty at that time, with no dealer standing behind it, while a bunch of people played on the CSM table. Maybe they would provide a dealer if asked, but I never did, as I was worried it might draw some unwanted attention.

The Gala at Russell Square (and maybe others) also reduces the min bet (from 5 to 3) during the less busy periods. Again, there tends to be just one table open.
