How much a casino dealer makes depends on state or regional rules and the rules of the house. Where dealers can receive tips, they are often paid a minimal salary. A quality dealer on a popular game during a busy night might be tipped well. However, a dealer on a less popular game during a slow time may not receive much by way of tips. Also, the house rules might require dealers to pool their tips and divide them equally. In places that do not permit tipping, dealers usually receive a higher salary.
