One of the most confusing things to new patrons when they come to a casino like Montana Jack’s is how much you actually need to tip. It is easy to figure out how much to tip a waiter or waitress, but when it comes to tipping your dealer in a casino, it can be hard to figure out what is best. You can’t simply calculate 20% out of your winnings because after all, that is a lot of money that you just made. Here is how to figure it out for yourself when you are at the casino.
Tipping Casino Servers
Typically you will see servers floating around with drinks ready to be taken to tables or individuals who are at the slots. When it comes to servers the same rules that apply to bars in the United States can be applied. A dollar a drink is the perfect amount for easy to make drinks like beer or two-ingredient mixed drinks. If your bartender is making a cocktail that includes more than two steps, then it is recommended that you tip at least two dollars.
In the case of Black Jack, it is completely up to the player, how they felt about the dealer, and how much was won. For instance, it is a good rule of thumb to at least tip $5. If you played for a longer amount of time then up that to $10. If you win more than $1,000 while at the table then it is generally good to give $25 to the dealer, but it is not required.
When it comes to games like poker, it is best to at least plan on a dollar per game that you play. If you start to win a lot more, then it is not a bad thing to slide them a little more money than that, but again, it is completely up to you. Games like roulette can vary. If you are having a lucky game, then sliding some money to the dealer can be much appreciated, but if you are having a down day, then it isn’t something that you should be overly concerned about.
Typically, experienced players will throw a $5 chip to the dealer just to keep them happy. This will likely make the experience better overall for everyone at the table.
