DEALER TIPS
An interesting quote from the Casino-Wiesbaden website.
"It is an unwritten rule that our guests donate 1/35 of every payout to the so-called staff
"kitty". Please note that this is not so that the croupiers receive extra tips; it is the only form of remuneration they receive. So if you pay the corresponding percentage to the kitty, we would like to say a big "Thank you" on behalf of our staff."

With regard to this message. Has anyone ever come across a former German casino dealer on the ships! I never did. - Ian
