I happened to be playing craps at Caesars the other night and saw some blatant dealer greed on display. Here's what happened.

There was a guy playing next to me, and he was doing pretty well especially on the prop bets. So much so that over the course of about an hour, he was betting for the dealers quite frequently. He must have bet at least $30 to $40 dollars for them, perhaps more. Anyway, at the end of his session he was about $800 ahead. He colored up, and what happened next is what I found so irritating. Right before he left the table, he generously put $50 on the felt and said to the dealer, "This is for you guys. Where do you want to bet it?"

The dealer thought for a second, looked at the guy's winnings in his hand, and said, "Drop 3 of those red chips right here," and pointed to the Come box right next to the $50 that the guy had already tipped them. The player looked a bit confused but did as he was told and gave the dealer $15 more [for a total of $65 instead of the original $50 tip]. The dealer then stated, "We're going to go $64 across for us with $1 on the Yo." (I thought to myself, "What a greedy old bastard!)

But justice was served because the dealers got one hit on the very next roll, but right after that the shooter threw a seven. (I laughed to myself)

This incident, of course, had absolutely no effect on me, but does anybody else hate seeing dealer behavior like this? I mean, basically helping himself to 3 more of the player's red chips seems a little outrageous to me, especially when the player had already tipped almost $100 for them on an $800 win.

What do you guys think?

I'd tell any Caesars dealer, "your tip comes out of the profits from 6:5 blackjack."


You said it, brother! LOL

That is the sentiment I thought about today regarding the Golden Nugget's choice to implement that silly Fremont Street Experience Fee (now called the Downtown Destination Fee.) OK, I won't do that, but I thought about it.
Never count your winnings at hour 23 of a 24-hour drive.

I'm not following, what was so greedy? somebody should have said, "hey, keep your money?"
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Telling a player to tip $65 instead of being happy with $50 (plus all the other tips they previously got from him).

Winning hands in blackjack (including a blackjack) pay even money minus a 5% commission.

If nobody tipped, the casino's would be forced to pay the dealers a reasonable wage, or they wouldn't have any dealers left.
