Christmas at the casino: how people celebrate it?

Christmas at the casino: it’s like a movie title, yet another Christmas comedy, and instead one of the favorite activities of fans of the game, or who wants to spend alternative holidays without endless lunches and without relatives.

You’d think that casinos close during the holidays, but no. Instead their glittering decorations, restaurants that offer special menus and shows characterize these days rotating about games and fun.
Any examples of Christmas at the casino?
In South African casinos, the dinner party takes place between 6 and 9 p.m. with live music and courses prepared by great chefs, then of course you wait for midnight playing!
However, In Australia, they prefer Christmas lunch at the casino, or dinner with overnight stay. Moreover, when the casinos also have the hotel, children are welcome so the whole family can enjoy a nice Christmas weekend doing what they love!
The more luxurious casino also give you the option of a room reserved only for you, for an intimate Christmas dinner but always inside the casino!
Of course, Christmas at the casino is also valid for online casinos, with special events organized in those very days when maybe you get bored to always sit at the table with your relatives.
Working at Christmas in a casino also means more generous tips, well-organized shifts and continous work throughout the year, without problems of closures or forced holidays for those who refuse to taking them.
Moreover you’ll have customers who want to have fun and warm welcoming atmospheres!
Not to mention company Christmas celebrations, parties with work colleagues or Christmas dinners!

Black Jack: history of a game born by chance

Do you know how many games on average are there in a casino ?

The most famous are five:
. Black Jack
. Texas Hold’Em
. Three Card Poker
. Bank Point
We have already talked about the different types of roulette. Today instead we’ll discover the world of Black Jack.
HOW DOES BLACKJACK COME ABOUT?
Black Jack was born as a variant of “baccarat” or “Chemin de Fer” in the 1700s in French casinos by the name of “Vingt-et-Un” that is 21.
WHAT WERE THE RULES OF THE ORIGINAL BLACKJACK?
Of course it wasn’t like today, Black Jack has been modified over time and several times. At the beginning, the dealer was the only one who could double the bet, extra prizes were provided for certain winning combinations. Above all, you can imagine playing right along for many hands in a row, until a player gets to 21 first and takes the whole jackpot, leaving the other players dry. This is how you played Black Jack.
WHY IS IT CALLED BLACKJACK?
About 1800s, it was appointed Black Jack in the USA. It was added, to the already existing rules, an extra paid hand: if the first two cards received by a player were the Ace of Spades and the Jack of Spades then “Black Jack” was declared and the lucky person was paid a hand 10 times as much!
Because of the low probability that it could happen, when it happened, the jackpot rose so high.
AND WHEN DID IT BECOME THE BLACKJACK WE KNOW?
When Black Jack reached Northern Europe, fans of gambling realized its potential. They studyed and improved Black Jack to make it more appealing and even more convenient! They began to study the chances of winning, combinations, and they put new rules, all this to reduce the chances of winning of the dealer.
Then Roger Baldwin came, he was considered the Einstein of Black Jack, who wrote one of the most famous books in the industry: “beat the dealer.” The book quickly became one of the most read in America, Baldwin, in fact, introduced the famous “trick” of “card counting.”
This brought Black Jack to worldwide fame, however, frightening the casinos who didn’t want to be defeated. Thus Black Jack was further regulated, including the possibility of playing with multiple decks as well as new rules.
When they realized that the techniques explained in the book were not a threat to their finances they restored the game with the rules we know nowadays
“Why are you telling us this story?”
Because we love our job, the smell of the cards, the sound of the chips, and we would like to transmit to our followers our passion of being a Professional Croupier, what makes us so happy.
A passionate person will rise faster, will love what he or she does every day, and will have fun.

The secret tricks of the croupiers.

“The way people play shows something of their character. The way they lose shows it at all.”
(Harvey B. Mackay)
Imagine you are on the other side of the table. You’ll be dealing with all sorts of people: calm, assertive, quick-tempered, deadpan, cheerful, high-strung, edgy.
Each emotion will probably be linked to something experienced in the casino: for example, one person could be full of energy after a big win, or a good hand, while someone else could get angry easily if they have been losing for a while.
And you, who are the croupier, how should you behave? You certainly cannot rejoice or get nervous with the customers. You must remain unmoved, as serious and professional as possible. Will you make it?
You will have to be a skilled observer, you will learn to read signals that perhaps you had ignored until today. You will become a skilled professional croupier and this will allow you to make a career and earn more and more.
What are the three most important tricks to staying sharp and in control of the table?
1. First know the multiplication tables. That way you won’t waste too much time counting chips or collecting bets.
2.

Casino history: different types of roulette

How many types of Roulette are there?

After telling you how Roulette was born today we’ll talk about its different types.
. French Roulette
. English Roulette
. American Roulette
Amateur players or on “vacation” players probably won’t notice the difference playing one of these types of Roulette. More experienced players, on the other hand, know every rule, and try to foresee the coming out of certain numbers by studying the odds. The truth is that everything is only in the “hands” of the ball, where it decides to drop into, it will be just luck or bad luck for the player!
Which are the differences among diffent types of Roulette?
French Rouletteis the classic one: there are 3 croupier to deal the game, French roulette has numbers from 0 to 36.
If zero comes out, the bets on the simple chances will be put on standby, as if skipping a spin, and in the next spin, if one of the previously played numbers come out, these chances are released, and then win or lose.
English Roulette is similar to French Roulette but without “stadby” so if the zero comes out the bets on simple chances will be halved.
The layout, on the other hand, is different from the French and American Roulette, the game is maneged by only one croupier.
American Roulette differs from the others by presence of a number more: the double zero (00). Number distribution is totally different from the French roulette, and there are no ads.
As in English roulette, there is no “stadby” rule, but unlike the other two types, here at the coming out of zero the simple chances (red/black, even/odd, manque/passe) will lose.

The History of casinos: How was roulette born?

How did the casino ROULETTE come about?

Like many other games, the true origins of roulette remain unknown to this day, but let’s try to take a few steps back in time.
The first evidence dates back to Roman times, when soldiers inside encampments, probably bored during guard duties, they decided to turn over a chariot wheel and attack an arrow to spin in the direction of the ground on which numbers were drawn.
Each participant spun the wheel, and depending on the number drawn, a lucky soldier could win coins or any possible bargaining chip.
From that time many legends about roulette tried to tell us its origins, although the most likely one, dates back to France, more specifically to Bordeaux around 1700. From this supposed origin we can therefore explain all those phrases that are used all over the world throughout the game, such as the famous “Le jeux sont faits” and “Rien ne va plus.”
In 1790, once all the changes have been made and precise rules have been established, the roulette came right in the casino games. Of course, there is no longer an arrow on the roulette but many little boxes and the ball that spinns around and will choose the box of the lucky winner, or of the dealer eventually!
In next time episode about casino history, we will tell you how many types of roulette exist!

Donna Croupier? It is not a man’s job

Croupier is not a man’s job.

Are you thinking that we are going crazy, all of a sudden? It is not like that. “Croupier is a man’s job,” how often have we heard this phrase?
However, it isn’t true. It is not (just) a man’s job, but it is perfect for both sexes!

The Professional Croupier woman still causes, in Italy today, some perplexity. Thanks to the movies in which the male figure playing these roles, and also the outdated mind-set, a wrong thought has taken root in many people that the job of the croupier is exclusively for men.
Abroad it is not only normal but in some cases it is really an advantage!
Ladies croupier are more than you can imagine and they are often better than their male colleagues. Many of them, in fact, win the first place in International Challenges held in Bristish casinos, every month.
It is time to say stop about “Croupier is a man’s job.”
Is it not enough? We’ll explain you the other benefit: ladies croupiers often get more tips than men. This is because many players give in to a woman’s charming and warming ways of doing, and they are mentally inclined to tip higher because they feel like gentlemen even entering in competition with each other. The classic primal instinct that, in this case, plays for the women.
Work within casinos are meritocratic and objective, so career opportunities are exactly the same for both sexes, it doesn’t create a gap between job positions.
Only flaw: there are still too few ladies dealer in casinos around the world!
If you have the desire to make a career abroad, learn foreign languages, and especially if you want to do a different job staying in contact with many different cultures and making the gambling your job, then you are in the right place!

5 Interesting facts about the Casinos world!

Do you want to know fun facts about casinos world? We selected the 5 most popular news, find them out with you!

Let’s find out together the 5 interesting facts about the casinos world!

N. 1 – CASINO HAS ITALIAN ORIGINS

In 1744 the word “casino” was born for the fist time in Italy, it exactly means “small house.” Although we are unable to give exact origins of gambling (we talked about it, here), the first gambling house is supposed to be “Ridotto” in Venice, it opened in 1638, therefore even before the spread of the word casino! Fun facts: in this Venetian gambling house, players could only “bet high stakes” and the dress code required were masks and tricorn hats.

N. 2 – HOW MUCH IS THE HIGHEST PAYOUT AT SLOT MACHINES?

The temptation to play slot machines is strong for everyone, even for those who do not have the passion for gambling. That must have been so for the winner who saw (almost) 40 MILLION DOLLARS come jingling out. A young American boy, after he only played $100, won the greatest prize in the world ever at the slots machines.

N. 3 – BLACKJACK IS THE LESS CONVENIENT TABLE (FOR THE CASINO)

Every table must have a gain for the casino but not all gaming tables are equal! Some games are more lucrative for casinos, for example, just slot machines have almost 70% profit margin. Black Jack is, on the other hand, the less convenient table where the chances of winning against the dealer are higher and it is therefore the most convenient game for players! PAY ATTENTION: not suitable for first-time players!

Do you know that Poker is a resistance game and that there are games that also last one or two months? Do you think it’s more than enough?
