Are there any high-stakes table game players in the audience? Then belly up to the tables at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Beginning last Monday, Caesars Palace raised its table games betting limit ceilings to the highest in the city.

Blackjack players who previously could bet up to three hands at $10,000 a hand, will enjoy raised wagering limits of one hand at $50,000 or three hands at $25,000 per hand.

Dice players who were limited to $5,000 on line bets, will have higher betting limits of $50,000 on any line bet. (Pass, Don’t Pass, Come, Don’t Come). Place bet limits will be $25,000 and $30,000, up from $5,000 and $6,000. "Hard Way" bettors will be allowed to wager $10,000 on any ”˜Hard Way."

Roulette players who were limited to $500 "Any Way" wagers (single numbers, splits, quads, etc.) will enjoy new wagering limits of $3,000 "Any Way."

The new wagering limits will be available in high-limit gaming areas and in the dice pit and will not affect popular lower table game limits posted in areas such as the Pussycat Dolls gaming pit and elsewhere throughout the resort.

"Caesars Palace always has been synonymous with high stakes gaming," said Gary Selesner, president of the fabled resort. "These new limits are the highest in Las Vegas and are in keeping with recent changes at the property to improve our appeal to the highest rollers and most affluent guests, including the opening of opulent new villas and suites, over-the-top new amenities and restaurants like Qua Baths and Spa, Restaurant Guy Savoy and Rao’s, and the Bette Midler show coming to the Colosseum in February."

"The new table limits also will enable us to share customers more easily with our London Clubs casinos in England and Cairo," Selesner continued, "and to better accommodate premium customers from sister casinos in the U.S."
