Blackjack Tips: Tipping

Today’s blackjack tip should go without saying, but sometimes these things need to be said anyway. If you are playing online blackjack at home, the only money you need to spend is on your wager. You deposit money in your account, wager with that money, and then make a withdrawal after you win all kinds of money (hopefully). That is all you need to worry about when it comes to money. Not so for playing blackjack at a brick and mortar casino.

If you visit a brick and mortar casino to play blackjack, remember that you will need to do some tipping. So who should you tip? Well, almost everyone. If you use valet parking, you need to tip the valet attendant. If you’re staying at the casino resort and a bellhop carries your bags to your hotel room, leave that person a tip. On the casino floor tips are also expected.

While you’re at the blackjack table, cocktail waitresses will come around and give you free drinks. Many people don’t tip for those free cocktails, but it is polite to do so. Leaving a small tip for the complementary drink will get the cocktail waitress on your good side, which could lead to better service. Even if it doesn’t, though, it’s polite. And that brings us to the blackjack dealer.

When you play blackjack at a casino, you should tip the dealer if you are winning money. If you lose your shirt, no one expects you to hand more money over. However, if you have a good run and make some money playing blackjack at the table, you should leave a tip with the dealer when you leave. Some players tip as they go.

Players who tip as they go can just place on the table and tell the dealer it’s for them. Another way to tip is to place a bet for the dealer. Even if the hand loses, in which case the dealer gets nothing, they usually appreciate the gesture. Tipping the dealer is not only polite, but it leads to a more friendly and helpful dealer, which make the blackjack experience more enjoyable.
