MCP DEALER HOMEPAGE
Casino dealers are absolutely VITAL to the ongoing success of our casino parties. This MCP Dealer page is intended for use as an overview of our guidelines and expectations. Additionally, this site will post open casino events that are still in need of staffing. If you are interested in booking one of the posted events, or have any questions or concerns, please contact Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dealer Attire / Uniform
Basic Dealer Attire/Uniform:
- White Tuxedo Button Up
- Black Comfortable DRESS Shoes
- Black Dress Pants/Slacks or Skirt
- Black Bowtie and/or Black Vest
Occassionally, we have special themed evernts that require different attire. Dealers will be notified in advance any change or specific requests to the required attire.
Bowties are available for purchase through MCP for $5 each. Please notify the dealer coordinator prior to your event that you would like a bowtie, and one will be provided to you in the event binder.
PRIOR TO THE CASINO EVENT:
- All dealers are to arrive 45 minutes ahead of the scheduled party/game time, dressed and ready to deal.
- Upon arrival at your event, please locate and sign in with the casino supervisor (MCP Operations). Fill out a VOUCHER, and check your table assignment.
- Once the event starts, dealers should not leave their table for any reason. If there is a problem, or you need a quick bathroom break, please find your MCP Ops Supervisor.
DURING THE CASINO EVENT:
- Encourage guests to play casino games and have fun! We are the ENTERTAINMENT!
- All dealers should maintain a $10,000 limit per bet at your table (besides TH).
- Failure to maintain limits causes problems: not enough chips to pay winner, or guests unhappy with inconsistent limits throughout the event.
- Remember that most guests do not know as much as you do about how to play the games, so you may have to help teach general rules.
- We want dealers to teach guests how to play, especially at the beginning of the party when tables are not yet busy.
- Always be friendly and courteous, and have fun with the players!
- If there is ever a question of who won a hand or how much a player bet, pay the player out – remember we are here to have fun, not make money for “the house”.
- MCP Operations/Supervisor will notify you when to call last hand, and when you may close and cash out your table.
- Dealers should work together to cash out guests – either counting for highest winner or providing raffle tickets based on a set amount.
- All dealers should return their full chip trays, cards, dice, balls, and markers neatly to the designated table (typically craps). The supervisor will dismiss you when all guests are cashed out and casino incidentals in order.
- EVENT SIGN UPS: Open events will go out via email. Dealers should respond via email directly or through the online form with their availability. The online casino schedule is currently under works – which will allow real time viewing of open casino events.
- CONFIRMATION: After collecting availability, dealers will be assigned events and sent a confirmation email message from the dealer coordinator.
- RSVP: Dealers are responsible for responding to the confirmation message and confirming their booking. Failure to RSVP will result in your spot being reassigned to another dealer.
- REMINDER: Assigned dealers will receive a reminder about their booking 2-3 days prior to the event. This reminder email will include the Casino Supervisor name and number, along with parking information and any special notes.
Baseline dealer pay pay for in-town Metro Atlanta events is:
– $75 for Texas Hold’em, Roulette, or Blackjack
– $95 for Craps.
Events outside the Metro Atlanta area range in pay based on the distance.
Dealers are paid via CHECK only at this time. Checks are processed on the 1st and 16th of each month. Checks are available for pickup after 2pm day of processing; or may be mailed via USPS the following morning. If you do not receive your mailed check, you may wait 90 days for the check to be voided by Truist free of charge, or you may pay the stop payment fee according to Truist at the time of your lost check ($35 currently).
MCP Dealers are considered independent contractors. This means we do not deduct taxes from your pay check; and will be provided a 1099-NEC tax form. You may be able to take advantage of itemized deductions depending on your income situation.
Behavior / Responsibilities
- Dealers should report to work dressed and ready to deal in a timely manner.
- NO alcoholic beverages under any circumstances on the premises before, during, or after the party.
- NO eating the client’s food before, during, or after the party.
- NO smoking during the party.
- NO cell phones are allowed once the party has started. Please be sure your device is on vibrate or silent during the event.
- Occasionally, the client will offer to let the dealers eat after the event. For these occasions, the supervisor will let you know.
- NEVER speak directly to MCP’s client – unless of course they are playing/interacting at your table.
- If you have any issues at your table or with a player, flag down or go find the MCP Operations/Casino Supervisor.
- Parking is the responsibility of the dealer. MCP will reimburse up to $15 for parking. The reminder email will include parking information and suggestions – such as whether parking will be validated, or where is the cheapest nearby lot.
- BE AWARE of signs and no parking areas. MCP will not reimburse for tickets, boots, tows, etc. due to negligence. You are responsible for your own vehicle parking.
