    Default Croupier Jobs In Hippodrome Casino

    I saw an ad somewhere that the new Hippodrome Casino on Leicester Square is recruiting over 400 staff for various job positions including croupiers. Casino is not open for the public yet but I saw some pictures of the casino and it looks amazing. I would really like to work there and I would like to get some more information about becoming a croupier and what the job involves and what is the pay rate for croupiers. Any info is appreciated. Thank You.

    I am surprised that with the current economy as it is at the moment, there are still people with money to throw away. I can see positive side of opening that new casino in London and all these 400 people getting all these jobs but would there be that much business really. Maybe the economy is not that bad as they say it is.

    Hey, Career1, that is nice and detailed job description you have provided there, thank you. I also want to ask about tips, as usually players tip the croupier, at least I now that they do in America, but someone said that in UK croupiers are not allowed to accept tips from customers. Is that true, or maybe it is just policy of some casinos and does not apply for all the casinos. If that is true then croupier wages must be that much higher to substitute the tips?

    I've worked for the parent company of hippodrome casino. They are really tight. Do not for one second think that they will pay more to reflect the lower amount of tips you receive. when it comes to casino work, make sure you pick the jobs that award the highest amount of tips.
    Waitress (tips are generally untaxed - you keep what you earn although in some places you may have to share between with other waiters/resses)/ dealer (tips are taxed and percentage goes to management)
