He was talking from his personal experience in the industry. So far all I've heard is opinion here. Why would the guy lie? He was very convincing and credible, and he seemed to know his subject very well.



Well, if we have learnt something from the internet... it's people can be convincing, credible and making it up as they go along :)

"They come under lots of pressure from their families to cheat when they become dealers, apparently.". Why would this just affect asian families? Why would being asian affect this at all?



Ever hear of Amway? Their most successful market so far has been China and SE Asia. Know why? When somebody becomes an Amway distributor in Asia, their families are bound by tradition to buy from them, its like they don't have a choice. Family pressure in Asian families is a very real and potent force.

This may be just an inflamitory thread without any real basis in true gambling.



How do you figure? Are the dealers invisable to you when you play?

This guy is very credible, he reeks of it. I've spoken to him many times and he doesn't BS. I'm positive he believes what he told me.

This floorman guy told you basically, "All Asian dealers are crooks," and your response is, "Gee, this MUST be true about those Asian dealers! And this guy is so credible!"
This is all completely assinine.

Again, this is just an inflamatory thread that really isn't realted to gambling.

Utter hogwash, but so what?

Consider that casino in Mesquite that is Korean owned? Do you think they watch Asian dealers any differently than others? They watch for anything that is not in the procedures manual. People watch for a hand in the till, they don't particularly care whose hand.

If many dealers are Asian, many arrests will be of Asians.

It's not regular Asians; it's the Asian Mafia infiltrating the casino industry here.

Oh wait, I made that up.

Really, though, it's the first I've heard of such a thing.

In any randomly generated set (as likely 95% or more of you already well know) you can have a high number of identical occurrences (so you could have conceivably) a high number of Asian dealers caught cheating at the casino the guy worked at and still not be out of the norm for the general population, which would mean of course, there's nothing to the accusation -- other than he, or his boss(es), whatever came to believe it.

I heard that Mexicans are smuggling Asian-Americans across the border into Mexico to find jobs. The Jews are funding the operation, and the Italians want a piece of the action. The blacks don't want to go because they don't want to work anyway. The Muslim nations are demanding that these infidels convert, and the Germans just want to exterminate them. The French just want to give up the fight, and the Swiss are remaining neutral. The Chinese are ramping up production of the supplies needed, and the Indians are looking at providing customer support for the operations. Meanwhile, white Americans are afraid to say anything about it, but are wondering who will be left here to do the jobs that are beneath them and where might they be able to purchase some slaves.

How did you find all that out, Jack? Are you an investigative reporter? Great post.
