The croupier was a decent sort of bloke, with lots of empathetic chat. I started tipping him three pounds for the bigger wins. Each tip, he would bang these chips​.

tipping croupier

The cards and chips were everywhere. I was having dinner with another manager in the casino restaurant when a disgruntled customer walked past and spat in my food. Then I saw it, and it was a piece of shit. Steven remembers, "I saw a guy stand there and piss himself at the roulette table, because his numbers were coming in, and he didn't want to leave the table to go to the toilet. Eloise remembers a Russian player losing a quarter of a million on blackjack in less than five minutes: "He swept the whole table at me. So they went and got it, put it on a plate, and he went, "no, in a fucking box". The manager put it in front of the player and asked him if that was his card. It was the first time I'd dealt to him and I was thinking 'who the fuck is this guy? Some girls had a kip upstairs on their break but as much as I was tempted to roll out a sleeping bag under the roulette table, I couldn't sleep in the casino. I sleep properly now, so I don't waste my day in bed, waking up when it's dark. He says, "the worst bit of the week is changeover when you go from a night shift, to a day shift. Eloise spent a decade in Mayfair. Management said, 'what d'you want us to do? Faye describes one player insisting all the chips are hand sorted before he'll play. She'd slept with a horse or a donkey β€” that was the translation given to me by one of the waiters. He hadn't played in some time when his favourite number came in, then, "low and behold, he was going to bet that time! Tom and Steven cite similar examples, with Steven explaining, "they'll say something like, "oh, I was thinking of number eight, but I forgot to play it. All names in this article have been changed.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} She took her necklace off, gave it to me, and said, 'please make this the start of your new collection. You're at work on Fridays and Saturdays when your friends are out socialising and meeting people β€” that's why I'm still dangling on a thread at the age of Says Tom, "I'd take energy tablets and all sorts to get through a night shift. Tom says, "they swear at you in their own language β€” it translates strangely, so they're calling you 'scum in the gutter,' or 'son of a motherless goat. I ran downstairs, out the front door, and luckily I found it in the gutter outside. Tom says, "I've seen a player run out of money and send a manager downstairs to get his suitcase β€” it was the kind you'd take on a flight as hand luggage. Tom was rewarded if the house won: "If we had a big win, they'd send a crate of champagne to the break room, with a load of Belgian chocolates. Seb spent 20 years as a manager in Mayfair casinos. Eloise says on one occasion, a big player sat at the table repeatedly asking her to spin, without placing any bets. The punter told me he was bringing me in a watch and I got excited β€” I thought it would be a Rolex. But that's shared between hundreds of people so I probably got a fiver out of it! One guy lifted a heavy chair to knee height, and launched it feet, skidding along the floor. Once they knew I dealt roulette, blackjack, and other casino games to multi-billionaires, the inevitable questioning would commence, beginning with, "what's the most money you've seen someone win or lose? It was crap, because other dealers had been given designer jeans! Eloise remembers, "I had a customer who wanted to buy me a box of chocolates. It would roll on to, "you must work funny shifts? I told him to run it by a manager, and the manager said it wasn't allowed. I think he tries to find the thing in life he can't control β€” and that's the ball on roulette. Was the player pleased with his win? He's probably the most aggressive punter anyone in the industry ever came across. He was a beast of a man. He stayed for another couple of spins then sloped off. Someone else took the ball out of the wheel and chucked it down the casino, and another punter grabbed a manager round the collar and held him up against the wall, threatening to hit him. You might as well choose numbers and tell me how much you want me to pay you. It happened five or six times in the four years I was there. We had to have taken millions β€” or at least hundreds of thousands. He makes us sort thousands of them, so they all face upwards the same way. He's very controlling. They'd let us have a mini-party! Seb adds, "I've been spat at. No one wanted to drink the shitty Nescafe, so you'd bring in a jar of Lavazza, and someone would nick it. We don't have enough security to escort the staff to their cars one-by-one. He had fingers like Vienna sausages and he'd bang the table and call everyone a fucker or a cunt. I've been threatened to be killed. It would sort my life out, and to them it's just a losing number. Tom says, "there was one punter whose wife bought him some lottery tickets and he won a few hundred grand. Seb says, "your body gets used to it, but you never know how badly it affects you until you come out of the business, and realise you do actually need to sleep at night. Now we just bring our own capsules in. We were praying he'd say yes, because if he said no, it would've been problematic! It had to go through a manager β€” it was at their discretion if I could have it. So they went and got it, put it on a plate, and he went, "no, in a fucking box. The card had been drawn face down and given to the Russian, so he was the only one who'd seen it. It's like, 'let's test them and see if they'll pay this! Eloise says, "I used to sleep all day then drink sugary tea throughout the night shift. She explains, "the chips have their cash value on one side and the company logo on the other. We all froze and stared at each other β€” no one knew what to do. A player might throw money during the spin, and say they want it on number 23, but if the ball drops in number 20, they'll claim they called 20 and 3. Seb says, "an Australian punter had us bring in Big Mac and fries for him because he wouldn't eat from the restaurant. When he opened it up, it was full of money. He says, "That's how you get over your nerves when you're dealing with big money. An Australian punter had us bring in Big Mac and fries for him because he wouldn't eat from the restaurant. He turned a table over on a pregnant girl β€” he made her vanish, paid her off. Steven drinks six or seven coffees a night. Another classic is for players to simply claim they would have bet on the winning number. He said something in Arabic about my mother. He was only in for a few grand. You lose touch with most of your non-casino friends. I hit his favourite numbers three times in a row β€” and the last time, he threw the ashtray, and walked out. To satisfy the curiosity of everyone whose questions I dodged at parties, I've roped in some fellow croupiers to give you a glimpse into what it's like working as a croupier in London's most exclusive members' clubs. The shifts affect your social life. What's the most she's seen won? {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}When I worked as a croupier in Mayfair casinos, I'd sometimes pretend I stacked shelves in Tesco, rather than tell people what I did for a living. There was a time when I was high every night on coke. He kept it in his pocket and waved it in everybody's face, going, "can you believe I won the lottery and I don't even need it? I've seen a punter pick up a chair and throw it over the table at the dealer. Then they decided they'd get some, but if we wanted one, we had to make a donation to charity. There must have been a million in there, and it had just been left by the front door of the casino. Luckily he agreed it was β€” even though it meant the other player won. He went, 'it looks cheap enough, you can keep it. Other punters get really pissed off. Steven's seen several players lose three to five million in a few hours. In summer, working weekends means you miss weddings; and sometimes you miss Christmas with your family because you have to choose between time off over Christmas or New Year. He was a proper prick. Made us bring him fucking McDonalds. Faye says, "the worst reaction I've seen was when an English player threw a crystal ashtray in the roulette wheel while it was spinning β€” it shattered in a spiral against the wall. What's the point in me standing here? How did they react to the win? He kicked all the chairs over, threw all the chips β€” the dealer was coked up, so she was laughing, and I had to empty the room of the staff. So on roulette, a player might throw money during the spin, and say they want it on number 23, but if the ball drops in number 20, they'll claim they called 20 and 3. Everyone saw his trousers getting wetter and wetter. He had a date with him once β€” she looked at him as if to say, 'Who am I with?
