Bob, just how high a level of ethical standards do you think minimum wage employees?

The pit usually makes less than poker dealers. The floorman always touts me on the easiest table, whether it's worth waiting for, who's on tilt, etc. Hey, he is not allowed to take tips. But I have shown one ot two of them the glowing email I sent to the casino manager.
It's easy to get info, hell this aint Wall Street. It just a f***ing casino.

Bob - I have experienced this is 95% of casinos I have ever been in.



Me too. And that's over 500 casinos...

So I have been having a conversation with someone regarding whether or not they have ever heard casino employees
talking about players to other players...


Only under exceptional circumstances:
A strikingly beautiful woman, a very obnoxious drunk, any incident that involved intervention by security.
Dealers downwind of Fleastiff tend to express relief upon his departure.

Usually it is improper for their to be any discussion about a player or references to players. One Dice Crew even got written up for using the phrase Dark Side when it just happened that one end of the table was composed of a racial element that turned out to be super sensitive and the players at the other end of the table were all white.

People talk about their work and about other people. It follows they'll talk about people they come accross during work, too.

I've had dealers tells tories about "this guy" who bet a lot, or "that guy" who did this or that peculiar ritual. But nothing I would call indiscreet, as they never identified anyone. I see nothing wrong or improper about it.

The pit giving out private details of other players to the public.
Name, profession, details about their lives.

You must go to entirely different casinos than I do, thats about
as unethical as you can get. If I heard that happening about me,
I'd raise so much hell with upper management they'd never get
over it.

I remember a dealer telling me how they woudl use small code for letting each other know about odd play made by players. She told me that when a player would split 10's in BJ a couple of the dealers would yell out "4 inches!" if they again resplit a new 10/10 the dealer would yell out "2 inches!" ... the joke being 8 inches is a good thing for most guys to have, so is a 20- why cut a good thing in half. ;)

Yeah it's mostly all in good fun...social. But if employees of the casino bad mouth other players. It could be bad I suppose. Mostly I think the staff is just bored.
