Most Online Casinos Don't Offer Tipping Functionality

The topic of tipping while playing in online casinos is discussed in this article.If you have ever played in a casino game at a "brick and mortar" casino, you likely know that there is an expectation to tip after you win a big amount of money.

For instance, let's say that you win $1,000 after a spin of the roulette wheel. It's pretty standard to tip the croupier at this point - likely somewhere in the neighbourhood of $20-$50.

One question we see asked quite frequently - is there the same expectation when playing at "live" online casinos?

After all, you aren't just dealing with a computer - instead, there is a real, live person in front of you, responding to all of your moves, just like at a traditional casino.


"Live" casinos don't expect you to tip.

In fact, many casinos prohibit tipping.

If they don't prohibit tipping, there is usually absolutely no expectation that you tip.

After all, you can stand up and leave a table at any time.

Online casinos are very profitable ventures as it is, and their dealers are usually well-compensated.

This is different compared to Las Vegas, where dealers usually receive very low wages and rely on tips to survive.


In short, don't worry about tipping at a "live" casino.
