You must be in an alternate universe. Life does not work that easy. If you used to make 75 and now make 25 with 24 years of your 30 year mortgage it is not that easy to just move to an apartment.

I never said stealing was the right thing to do so your point still makes no sense. My point is, it does not matter what your income was in order to determine who is most likely to steal. When people steal they do it for 1 of 2 reasons. They are either just a bad person looking to take shots or they are desperate and do it because they feel there are no other options.



This is an utter rationalization, "no other option." If you're working full time and making less, you downsize. If you are not working, stealing chips from a gambling hall is a bit different than sliding a steak under your coat at a supermarket to feed your family. If your family is hungry you're not in a gambling hall (or else they're hungry because you are in a gambling hall).

Back to the original question...Isn't there a website that lists the salary and conditions for dealers from a large number of casinos? I recall that the data is the result of anonymous surveys.


Well, durn! Why didn't I think of that? (Giving myself well-deserved dope slap.)

Here's the low-down from a website (I believe) not yet mentioned in this thread:
Casino Dealer: Dream Job or Nightmare?

  • Starting Salary: $7 - $8 per hour
  • Average Dealer Salary: $10 per hour after a "few years." US Bureau of Labor Statistics sez average dealer salary (excluding tips) is $14,700 per year.
  • Average tips: Anything from a few dollars per hour up to $50 per hour.
  • Total pay, including tips: $30,000 - $60,000 per year, topping out around $100,000 per year (in very rare, exceptional cases).

But, if "business" is slow, dealers may get fewer hours, lowering pay. And, there are other drawbacks to dealing as a job, and the article mentions those also.

Yes and no. Where i work (Im on the strip) If its a slow time of year, they offer full time employees days off and give the part time (extra board) employees those shifts...So it gives the part timers more opportunities to get more days during slow times..which is nice.

Not lately, but if you do a search, you'll find plenty.

And as to the last statement, let's just say there is a range of opinions on the subject, sometimes argued "vigorously." :)
"Dealer has 'rock'... Pay 'paper!'"
