What sort of career progression is available to you?

Pit boss and then Manager.

Can you describe a typical day for you at work?

If I have a morning shift, I wake up at 6 a.m.

I’m always at work at 7 o’clock. I spend 40 minutes to prepare myself: make-up, hairstyle and uniform. Then we change girls from the night shift.

Our schedule is  30 min on each table and the next 30 minutes we have break. We work the whole shift like this. During the break I can take a rest, eat and watch movies.

12 hours.

30 minutes.


What training are you given?

We are given training in Blackjack, Roulette & Lottery.

Professionals who have a lot of experience in the casino industry.

How long does the training take and do you have to pass tests before you are allowed to deal?

6 weeks and then we have an exam before we are allowed to deal.

What does the training involve?

At first we have to learn the rules of the games, then the technique of dealing and spinning. We are also trained in how to communicate with players.

Is your on table performance measured? If so, in what way?

Yes,  the pit boss gives us marks on our performance.

How do you know when you’re doing a good job?

After the shift the pit boss announces our marks, and explains our mistakes or praises our work.

How important is the chat facility?

It’s a very important facility as this is the only way we can communicate with the players. Players can ask any questions or simply talk with me during the game.

Do you have pre-prepared questions to get players talking?

No, I don’t. I usually let the conversation be light, see how players behave, if they like to talk or maybe they only want to play.

What subjects are you not allowed to talk about?

Politics, religion and our location.

Was there anything that surprised you about being a live dealer?

Yes, a lot of things. Working in front of the camera, getting used to TV-makeup and bright lights.

We have a monitor with a Dealer User Interface and also a camera.

What info do you have about the player?

Only his nickname and also what he writes in the chat.

Do you know how much people are betting?

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?

Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?

Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?

Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?

Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?

After all that, would I play there regularly?
