A Day in the Life of a Casino Dealer
If you’ve ever been to a casino or played online, you’ll have interacted with a casino dealer or host. In this short blog, we’ll talk about what they do, what qualities are needed, and ultimately, how to become one.
What is a casino dealer?
A casino dealer’s main role is to make sure that each game runs smoothly. And, as the name suggests, they’ll be the ones dealing out cards, paying out the chips and interacting with the players. They are also referred to as ‘croupiers’.
So, whether you’re playing Live Blackjack, Live Roulette, Live Baccarat or Live Poker, there will always be someone on hand to guide you through the action. This is to make sure that the game is played fairly.
Being one of our Live Casino hosts, is slightly different, as the payouts to players will be done automatically. The hosts will still have the same responsibility of running each game, dealing out the cards and interacting with players online.
Check out our Live Casino, where our live dealers will be in action. There are tons of tables to choose from, including the unique Lightning Roulette, which can see payouts of up to 500x on a single number.
How do you become a casino dealer?
There are many different ways to become a casino dealer. Some people will start their journey by working an entry level job at a casino, for example as a slot attendant, before gaining knowledge of the industry and working their way up to become a casino host.
There’s also the educational route, with many degrees in hospitality and tourism widely available. These can help you develop the necessary skills required to succeed in this line of work.
Can anyone become a casino dealer?
The simple answer would be yes. However, there are a few qualities that are essential when working as a casino dealer. You’ll need to:
- Enjoy working with people
- Have strong communication skills
- The ability to work under pressure
- Remain professional at all times
So, If you’re a chatty, outgoing people person, then becoming a casino dealer or a live host could be for you.
