Learn Casino Rules and Language
by Frank Scoblete
In this lesson, you will learn casino rules and distinct
dialects or the language of the casino.
Casinos have their own rules,
you don’t want to feel like an unwanted foreigner, you have to
language and rules and then you must assimilate.
You will find that there’s only one way to do things when in
a casino – the casino rules!

Before you can play any casino table game, you have to
exchange your cash for chips. Here certain casino rules apply. Never
money directly to the dealer. He isn’t allowed to take anything
the hands of a player.
In fact, a dealer isn’t even allowed
to shake the hands
of a player. You must put your money on the layout.
The dealer will take the money on the layout and spread it
for the camera and the floorperson to check. The floorperson is the man
woman not in uniform who oversees several tables in a pit.
pit is a group of
tables, usually of the same game, in a given area of the casino. The
charge of a pit is a pit boss.
Once the floorperson okays the amount of the buy-in, the
dealer then takes chips out of his chip tray and counts out stacks that
equal the amount of the buy-in and stuffs the cash into a hole in the
where it is collected in a drop-box.
Again, the floorperson
checks to make sure
that the dealer has counted everything out correctly. When the dealer
nod, he slides the stacks of chips to the player, usually saying, “Good
The casinos are sticklers
for the proper buy-in procedures. They have to be. The most frequent
theft in a casino is from the casino’s own personnel.
Of course, even with all the proper procedures in place,
cheating dealers can sometimes be so ingenious in their tricks that
able to rip off their employers anyway.
I saw a video where a dealer was able to shovel chips
directly into her sleeve as she counted out chips or collected chips
losing bets. Once she had several chips up her sleeve, she would then
arm slightly and the chips would go down into her shirt.

what to look for, you would never have seen the move – it was that

shirts that have sleeves that cling tightly to the wrists and aprons
surround their pants or dresses.

Casino chips come in all sorts of denominations and colors.
Usually, $1 chip are white (sometimes blue); $5 chips are red; $25
green; $100 chips are black; $500 chips are purple; $1,000 chips are
grey, and $2,000 chips are orange.
It’s rare to see denominations larger than $2,000, except in
some high roller rooms.
The sizes of the chips vary as well. The $1 to $500 chips
are the same size but, usually, the $1,000 and higher denominations are
Once you have your chips, you can begin to bet. However,
even here there are certain casino rules that must be followed. When
betting different denominations of chips, you must place the highest
on the bottom and go up accordingly.
So if you want to bet $131, you’d put a black chip on the
bottom, a green chip on top of that, a red chip on the green chip, and
chip on the red chip.
With the exception of roulette, all casino table games
within the same casino use the same denominations and colors. Because
individual bets from a variety of players are stacked next to and upon
another, roulette games have many different colored chips, the
which are determined by the player.
When a player buys in at
state what he wants the value of his particular colored chips to be.
Suffice it to say that if you trying to
learn casino rules, it’s always best to ask first, before you
yourself upset or into hot water.
