NAME: Steve Khan
MESSAGE: It is with great regret to hear the sad new of the passing
of Ricky Pritchard. As his brother Dave quite rightly says, “he trained
thousands of dealers“. As we never forget the person who trained us, I
am sure this news will be felt by many across the four corners of the gaming
world. It will take many years before there isn’t a dealer somewhere making
the announcement of, “last three spins” that hasn’t got something to do
with Ricky Pritchard.
NAME: Dave Pritchard
MESSAGE: I am so sad to say that my Brother RICKY PRITCHARDpassed
away in South Africa on the 23rd Feb. He fought Cancer like a champion
but it was all too much in the end. Rick trained thousands of dealers in
his time, and will be missed. Any donation to the fantastic hospice people
worldwide would be appreciated.
May he rest in peace.

MESSAGE: I was working in North Cyprus, what i want to post now is
a warning, because they have about 5 or 6 casinos and they make contact
to people from gaming floor and lie for them about offer in everything
about money and working hours and offs, in some casinos people work 10
and 11 hours and they cut money for every thing even if some body say for
u a call bet with turkish and u dont understand it.
Email address withheld.
A slightly cautionary tale. Casino staff travelling
to a new location should ideally ask for a copy of their contract before
accepting a position. Ian
