set up in some
rooms, paid out when one very high hand is beaten by an even higher one. Most Bad Beats require a Full House or better to be beaten by a Four of a Kind or better, as well as a certain amount of money in the pot for the hand. Bad Beat Jackpots are split up in different ways depending on the
, but often go along the lines of: 15% to the winner of the hand, 75% to the person who was beat, and 10% split up among all the other players at the table. A small amount (25 or 50 cents) is taken out of every hand played to fund the Bad Beat Jackpot.
- A tour bus that brings a group of
, usually retirees, to a casino for a day.
- Race & Sports Book, the place where you place bets on sporting events.
- A dealer brought in to "break" a player's luck.
- A Dealer's first job. A casino where Dealers go after finishing Dealer School, to learn the hands-on things that the schools can't teach effectively.
- Go broke ("I busted him out in under ten minutes!")
Burn a card
- In Blackjack, putting a card directly into the discard pile without it having been used or seen by the dealer and players. This is most common at the beginning of a new shoe, (one to three cards), and when changing dealers (one card). Any card that falls off the table is usually burned, too.
- The cashier's booth. Called the cage because they usually have iron bars over the window.
- A free benefit given to someone who plays a lot, ranging from a free buffet to show tickets to a room at the hotel. Short for "complimentary."
- A credit-card-like card that casinos issue to
for tracking purposes. You get comps for using your comp card.
- Lose ("I dropped forty at Roulette last night.")
- Early Out. The privelege of going home from work early. Day shift never gets EO's. Swing and Grave do. Dealers,
waitresses, and change runners can sometimes get EO's.
- Chips from another
- The area of gaming tables where
, and other non-Poker games are played.
- Used in Poker rooms. Refers to an extremely
player who folds most hands, playing only the most certain of winning hands. Usually attempting to be present for a Bad Beat.
- A plastic rack designed to hold several decks of cards (usually 6 or 8, but I've heard of 10-deck shoes). This allows for longer gameplay without interruption - and also messes with card counting systems.
- The table games with a high
, like Chuck-A-Luck, War, and the Big 6 Wheel.
- Going around looking for unattended
with coins in the trays. This
get you kicked out if you're caught doing it.
- A place where all of the
' tokes are collected so that they can be evenly split among all of the Dealers.
- The casino keeps a log of how much a player plays, for how often, and how he or she plays.
