A roulette table with a single layout is usually worked by two "croupiers".
A double-end table with two layouts is operated by either three or four
croupiers. The croupier who spins the wheel and deals the game is called
the "wheel roller" by casino employees. To keep it simple, we'll
call him the "dealer" and his assistant the "croupier".
A working example using a table with a single layout is as follows:
The dealer is in charge of the conduct of the game. His/her main duties
are selling chips to players, spinning the wheel, throwing the roulette
ball, announcing winners, collecting losing bets and paying winning bets.
The croupier separates and stacks the losing chips that have been collected
or swept from the layout by the dealer. He stacks the chips in piles of
20 of the same color and places them in the chip rack on the table's apron.
He also helps the dealer pay off winning debts by stacking the correct
number of chips in a convenient place to the left of the table's apron.
All large casinos use an additional employee, the pit boss or inspector.
He 'stands guard' in the pit ring, watches the game and is in charge of
its conduct. He makes out cash-out, credit and fill slips, corrects any
errors made by the croupiers or players and watches for cheating.
