I Dealt cards just after I turned 19 and worked in three different casinos...

What kinds of games did you deal? Regular table games, or poker?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

ahh.. forgot about switching tables.
at my casino, it's every 30min.

and yes, they sometimes sit at an empty table because it got broken up.

lets subtract 10% hands for that so 27 hands/hr.
$27 +$5 base = $32/hr = $64k/yr if 40hrs/week of tables with players.. lol



More than 10% every switch you will miss 2 hands. That is 4 hands per hour, we can even say it will be 1.5 for 3 hands per hour. That alone is 10%. Then take in breaks, another 40 minutes or more a shift. That is approx 20 missed hands or 2.5 per hour. Then take your down time. Is that an hour a day? Let's say 30 minutes for another 15 hands missed. Those deductions are adding up quickly for about a 30% reduction off your 70k.

I'm pretty sure that theoretically, dealers should be paid top pay to discourage stealing money from the players. If you're paid top pay you would be less inclined to steal money from players.

Dealers are vetted, and the vast majority of dealers don't do this regardless of pay, -- in exactly the same sense that bank tellers (or any clerk) who handles money doesn't do this either, generally.

Often the most corrupt are on the top of the food chain. Bernie Madoff, Michael Milken ("Milking") et al.

Someone that is going to steal is going to steal regardless of pay. There is always more money to be had.

I know that dealers are vetted but being vetted didn't stop a woman from stealing $1,000 from a cash register from another location of the company I work for. What an IDIOT. There are CAMERAS watching cashiers at all times. She was promptly and deservedly fired but I felt bad for her friend who worked for the same company for a long time before her friend went to get hired gave her high recommendations when they were hiring. Ouch. The friend basically said,"When I gave her high recommendations, she wasn't a thief. She used to be so responsible and honest. I don't know what changed her so bad."

But who is more likely to steal his player's money? Sam who makes $10 an hour or Robert who is making $30 an hour?

Old dealer joke from the time the Venetian paid craps dealers 70 to 80 grand.

New Dealer at downtown break-in joint demonstrating his skills to the Pit Boss: "how long do you think it will take me to get to The Venetian?''

Pit Boss: "Twenty minutes if you leave now".

The one who makes $30 an hour - because his appetite is whetted and his eyes are bigger.
The one who makes $10 an hour - because he is hungrier.
ad infinitum.....

Seriously, it's just a matter of personal integrity, you don't know who is a crook or not until the tire hits the road when on the job.
