Crown Careers: Being a Dealer

Crown Careers: Being a Dealer


My name is Michael Withers[SP], and I’m a
croupier or a dealer at Crown, so I deal blackjack
and baccarat.
Well, I started off dealing blackjack.
And so the way it usually works is you deal
blackjack or roulette or poker.
You can have one of the three options to start
with.
So you deal that for 12 months.
And then after 12 months is up, then they’ll
offer you a second game.
So I got baccarat as my second game.
I love baccarat.
It’s a lot of intensity.
And when you deal up into the higher end levels
like mahogany, you get a lot more action,
so you get a lot bigger games going on.
I love Chinese New Year, because I love backrooms.
That’s when we get a lot of international
players coming over, who are spending a lot
more and betting a lot bigger.
So they jump in and get to know them, it’s
always a new face.
So it’s just someone else who I get to talk
to.
One of my best moments was probably when I
was dealing up mahogany and I had a player
come up and he threw $100,000 plaque at me,
for the first time.
That was astonishing.
It really opened my eyes.
