It's actually six hours, I do an hour on, 20 off, and when I'm sitting box, lately, my pit is on a 40/20 rotation... 40 minutes on, 20 minutes off..., and all breaks are paid.... I get tons of time to read magic books during break. Hey Clock, a lot of the poker dealers in California work on above minimum wage + tips..., a good dealer can turn out about 30-35 hands per hour..., usually you get a buck a hand on average pots and more on bigger pots..., but of course, sometimes you will get a table full of cheap ********, and you won't make squat for that round... It's all a part of the job and you will learn how to deal with those types...

Well duh. 60 on/20 off is the norm.

In my private games dealers were making £2,000 a night, what's that? about $4,000 in tips but not now as the big private games seen have dried up. In fact I am struggling to get any games of late. Most guys are playing comps and the tips there are nothing.

Tommy,

What were the stakes? Games? Rake?

Does anyone know how much poker dealers in Vegas make?

Iamslow,

I don't see where the amount that Vegas poker dealers make is mentioned. Could you point it out to me??

Generally the poker dealers around town keep their own tips. So it's highly variable.

And the pro players who play in the big cash games are notorious stiffs.

I highly agree with Mr.Z... I once dealt to Johnny "the *****" Chan, and I dealt him a $54,000 pot, and I got zero tips.... He's also the worst to have on the table... It's like babysitting.... There's also Joe "tight***" Hachem who won the world series and tipped a hundred bucks...

Can't comment on California, but here in Vegas you live off the tips. The best job in town right now is at the Wynn where they average $450 a day, and that's the *average.* If a big George comes in they can make significantly more, for example in March they had their best day, a little over $1500 in one night. Needless to say they make over 100K a year. The next best jobs are probably Caesar's and Bellagio. Hard Rock's a great gig too. Generally, at the big strip properties it's between 40 and 80 grand a year. Still not bad for just snapping cards and pushing checks for 8 hours a day.

Yeah I was just gonna mention Hachem.

Devilfish Ulliot is another one. I hear he likes to beat up on dealers too, and is a real fleabag to boot.

Oddly enough I think if you want to make good money dealing poker Vegas isn't the place for it, at least in this day and age. A buddy of mine deals poker at an Indian casino in upstate NY and makes $2-300 a night in tokes. Dealing poker is the prized gig there and after taking their dealing class you're on a waiting list to get hired, for months at a time. The dealers in the pit barely make $100 a day.

I know Devilfish. I am not sure what you mean by beat up on dealers but he couldn’t punch his way out of paper bag. As for flee bag - well not many I know are fond of him either lets say.

Tommy, I think he means the whole 9 yards... throwing cards,swearing,threatening the dealers... calling a bet and placing it just barely past the line so the dealers gotta reach...

I see, thanks, I am not up on USA lingo. Well Devilfish would not be alone there and it is the one thing I hate about dealing but it's part of the job to be able handle bad losers. There is not so much of it in private games because the dealer can knock them out as far as I am concerned and still keep her job. Some of my girl dealers are well capable of doing just that and the players know it. Smile Not really but they can give as good as they get.
