Being a Croupier in Switzerland

How does one live in Switzerland working as a Croupier? How many clichés exist about living in Switzerland? We are sure you have read all kinds of them! From earnings to the unfriendly population to the cost of living.

Let’s see together what are the false myths and what instead will make you say “I want to live in Switzerland”!

What is it like to live in Switzerland?

The quality of life in Switzerland is certainly optimal, especially since the services, the hospital sector and everything related to the person works very well. The Swiss are very law-abiding, and it is first and foremost the citizens who abide by the rules and want them to be obeyed. Perhaps for us Italians it might all seem a bit “stiff,” but when that means the lowest unemployment rate in the whole world, services that work perfectly and feeling safe, then we are sure the game is worth the candle.

How much does a croupier make?

The income of a Croupier is about 3800 francs gross per month, excluding tips which are then a very important part of a Croupier’s “end of the month.” Are you wondering how much it amounts to in euros? Approximately 3500 euros, not a small amount if we think that to this we have to add customer tips, which, in Swiss casinos, are quite high.

Is making a career in Switzerland possible?

As in all casinos in Europe and around the world, careers within casinos are entirely possible. However, entering casinos in Switzerland is not as easy as in other places. Table Tests are tough and the demands very limited. This makes us even more proud when some of our trainees are hired by our partners in Switzerland!

Table Test: what is it and how to pass it?

Table Tests, what are they and why are they essential to get into casinos around the world?
More importantly, how do they overcome?
Table Tests are actual final exams given to aspiring dealers or to already professional dealers who want to change casinos to assess their preparation. Everything will depend on that, if they are passed then the permanent contract will already be ready to sign.
Passing them obviously requiresexcellent preparation, and the more difficult it is to get into a particular casino, the more difficult the Table Tests will be.
In Gaming Academy we continuously prepare our students to take the Table Tests. What we are most proud of is the 100% positive results, which then allows our students to sign their contracts. But, allow us, an extra bit of pride comes when already professional dealers ask us to give them a hand with Table Tests to get into casinos that have “higher” demands at the professional level.
Then the bar is raised, and we love a challenge.
But let’s take a step back, what happens during a Table Test?
Imagine a real game simulation: dealer – customer. Everything is taken into consideration. And when we say everything, we mean everything: How is the croupier dressed? What does it look like? Do you smile at the customer? Are his movements on the table clean and firm? Do you show signs of insecurity? Is he clumsy or does he make many mistakes?
In short, if life is made up of exams, the Table Test is one we thought we left behind by finishing school!
Cold-bloodedness, optimal preparation and eagerness are the three main characteristics for those who want to take a Table Test. We can certainly help you with the first two, will you put the will in?

Being a Croupier in Gibraltar, had you ever thought about it?
Let us delve into the topic geographically: Gibraltar is located in Spain, more specifically in Andalusia, but it is part of British territory politically. Despite this, it is not suffering the same issues after the advent of Brexit. There may be news but not at this time. Indeed, one of the most developing sectors is precisely Gaming, between land-based and online casinos.
But what is it like to live in Gibraltar?
The climate is very similar to ours, Mediterranean. Life flows slowly, peacefully, forget the hubbub of big cities, Gibraltar is a small corner of peace and serenity. Ideal for young people who are eager to develop new ideas, fertile ground for work and career advancement. Finding where to stay is very easy, you can choose from different areas or types of houses, also because one of the biggest advantages is that the salary is that of England but you live in Spain, where everything is definitely cheaper than in the UK. This means that for the same salary as their English colleagues, in reality those who choose to be croupiers in Gibraltar proportionally earn significantly more.
Is Gibraltar a safe place?
Absolutely! It is a closed peninsula with borders. You can walk at any time of the day or night without any fear, and enjoy the evening atmosphere as well.
Summing up, we can say that Gibraltar is one of the ideal places to start a new career and life path, with countless advantages and in complete safety.
