It is a question that is asked quite often in our field of business. The short answer is yes, but it really depends on your situation. For example, Dealers that work for Eventricate are paid on an hourly basis and are compensated by the host in addition to their hourly pay at the end of the event. Whether you are a host of the event or just an attendee, there are multiple factors to look for when deciding how much to compensate the dealers at your event.
Was Your Dealer Knowledgeable?
Your dealers should not only be knowledgeable about the table game in which they are working, but also be able to teach new players seamlessly without disrupting the pace of the game. A good dealer will be able to continue working the table while simultaneously answering questions from new players.
Was Your Dealer Entertaining?
Showmanship is everything. Did you find yourself staying at one table just because you were laughing and having a good time? This is a sign that your dealer was entertaining. Usually, if people are huddled around a table and the atmosphere is upbeat, your dealer is doing a fantastic job.
How Much Should you Tip your Dealer as an Attendee?
If the dealer hits (pun intended) all the criteria above, it would be a good idea to throw them an extra $5 or $10 dollars for a job well done. Do not tip with casino chips because they do not have any monetary value. Much like a bartender, giving them cash in the amount you are comfortable with will be sufficient. Remember, our dealers are there because they love entertaining attendees just as much as they love the table games, so a kind word with an added cash tip goes a long way in showing them that their hard work is appreciated.
How Much Should a Host Tip at the End of the Event?
Usually, we see our hosts tipping in the range of $25 to $50 per dealer at the end of the night. Use this range to show how satisfied you were with your dealers. If you walked around your event and the attendees seem to be having a good time, then you know your dealers are doing their job and deserve added compensation. Other hints that your dealers are keeping your guests entertained are from feedback. Did your attendees randomly compliment your event throughout the night without prompting? Then you know the dealers entertained your guests to the best of their abilities.
