Poker is usually played either in a private room, or in an area somehow separated from the rest of the playing areas.
As with other dealer positions, applicants should possess not only technical skills and knowledge of the game, but also good communication skills, general manual dexterity, and the ability to add and count out chips and cash quickly. Dealers earn an hourly wage, usually a bit more than minimum wage, with tips making up a large portion of their income. Tips for poker dealers are often quite good because the odds of winning big are somewhat better at this game than others. The game attracts plenty of high rollers as well, with generous tips from winners.
