What does a Gaming Dealer do?
As a Gaming Dealer, you will be operating the table game (Blackjack or various forms of Poker) assigned to you.

They must have good customer service skills to ensure that each game runs smoothly and that no fights break out during their games. Be aware that some conditions of the establishment you work for could contain hazards- such as cigarette smoke- and various distractions like loud chattering from people not at your table and sounds from lottery machines.
