This is a question Gambling

Broke the bank at Las Vegas, or won a packet of smokes for getting your tinkle out in class? Outrageous, heroic or plain stupid bets.

Any croupier that say they don't gamble is a liar.
After being exposed to vast sums of money being won and lost - it all becomes a bit meaningless and it's hard not to get involved.
Also, any croupier that says they don't enjoy taking money from punters is also a liar.
Generally, we want your money, as quickly as possible. Not everybody, but at least 95% of the clientele.

Especially when you bring your lucky beads to the table.
Or swear at us in Arabic - yes, we know what it means, but we've still got your money...
Or shout that it's all a fix - even though you're pouring your last coppers on to the table and have been playing for 6 hours.

Talking big and acting smug, abusing the staff and tipping the waitresses a fiver does not make you cool.
Losing 100 grand* on one hand of cards, not even breaking sweat and shrugging your shoulders, even though your stomach will be churning at 200mph. That's cool.

Great job though.

*Well, it was 100 grand NZ, but still...
