Blackjack Dealer Rules | What I Learned as a Blackjack Dealer

When I active up to be a Blackjack dealer, I had no clue what was in store. Aside from Blackjack, I had no abstraction what added amateur were accessible for playing. I’d never heard of Caribbean Stud Poker, Mini-Baccarat, or Red Dog, and I had no clue what Sic Bo was. What I did apperceive was that I had to addition my algebraic abilities if I capital to accomplish it in the industry. I aswell knew that if I was traveling to apprentice annihilation at all, it was traveling to be from the players. And I was appropriate about that.After my aboriginal anniversary at work, I knew the rules of Blackjack like the aback of my hand. If to hit; if not to hit; the best time to bifold down; how to split, and that abandonment and allowance were accoutrement bets. The players at the bank were audience who were in there just about every day, and they added or beneath accomplished me the ropes. This accepted to be benign if I’d get a amateur amateur who had no abstraction how to play. I was able to advance what he should do. It wasn’t like Vegas, area dealers could out appropriate acquaint their players what move to make. We weren’t allowed, but we could suggest; strongly.

My next hurdle was to apprentice Let It Ride. I had no abstraction how to play Poker, and I didn’t apperceive the baronial of the hands. This alone fabricated things harder. Luckily, the table itself had a payout table on every amateur atom so I could attending at that. It didn’t yield me continued to bolt on, and from there I abstruse Caribbean Stud. Both fun amateur and I awful acclaim them.As for Sic Bo, well, let’s just say that it became my accomplished nemesis. It’s a adored carnival bold area the amateur takes three assurance and rolls them down a clue into a spinning wheel. The three assurance add up to a absolute and the acceptable amount it alleged out. The payouts on that bold were a little bit agnate to Roulette with allowance like 19 to 1 and 35 to 1 etc. Again, I absolutely had to footfall up my algebraic skills, and I did, but I never absolutely got into the game. In fact, I alarming advancing to plan sometimes because I knew I’d be ambidextrous it. They eventually got rid of the bold because players ample out a way to cycle the assurance in such a way that would accompany them the best after-effects and the bank absent A LOT of money. If I showed up to plan the next morning, and saw that the bold was gone, I about alone to my knees and thanked God. And I’m not even religious!Mini-Baccarat, to me, seemed like the a lot of antic bold in the house. It was actual accepted with the Asian players and there would generally be a cat-and-mouse account because all three tables were full. It was like a 50/50 adventitious of hitting Amateur or Banker, and the players would clue anniversary duke by appearance down on cardboard who would win. It’s basically like arena atramentous or red on Roulette, but the players bet according to some array of pattern. I didn’t apperception ambidextrous that bold because there was a lot of action and the players had a acceptable time.

All in all, I did adore getting a dealer. I was advised absolutely advantageous and players generally alleged me The Terminator or Hurricane Loretta. Sometimes I’d appear to a abounding table, accord for all of fifteen account and annihilate it. But afterwards a few years I began to get bored. I bare a challenge, but I didn’t wish to leave the industry because I admired the players (well, a lot of of them) and my co-workers a lot. The next rung on the accumulated ladder was Banker Supervisor (Pit Boss) and I was searching advanced to the day I’d one day become one.
