The croupier: game host at the casino table
Croupiers speak to the imagination. They are the nimble-fingered ladies and gentlemen who make sure casino games run smoothly. They shuffle and distribute the cards, spin the roulette wheel, take care of payments and keep an eye out for cheater behavior. Becoming a croupier is not something you do overnight. There’s a great deal of training involved, which you can only complete if you possess the right skills.
Do you think you have what it takes to become a croupier? Hold your horses! You have to go through the Gaming Commission first to have your background checked. Once you have received the all clear, you can apply for in-house training at a casino. Note that most croupier training programs are limited to roulette and blackjack at first. After a year or three, once you’ve got a little more casino experience under your belt, you will be introduced to other games.
What skills do you need to become a croupier?
Croupiers must be mathematically gifted and able to do quick calculations on the spot. Dexterity is a plus, but practice makes perfect when it comes to motor skills. It goes without saying that croupiers also need to have great people skills.
Practice makes perfect
Becoming a croupier requires mastering many different techniques. Giving the right spin on a roulette ball, for example, is an art in itself. Shuffling cards and laying them on the table so everyone can see them perfectly, is also easier said than done. In short, becoming a croupier requires lots of time, hard work and dedication!
