The Wynn Las Vegas is ending a 12-year policy of allowing other employees to share tips given to dealers.
The resort shares about 12 percent of their tips with casino service team leads, according to reports, and this move means dealers will now take home about $10,000 more per year.
Wynn Las Vegas released a statement Wednesday evening regarding the dealer tip pool:
Beginning Nov. 12, the Casino Service Team Lead position is being replaced with the new position of Table Games Casino Supervisor. Casino Supervisors will not participate in the tip pool. As a result, dealers will be the only members of the tip pool, resulting in a net increase in pay. The new Table Games Casino Supervisor duties are extensive and include coaching and training of table games employees and well as participating in interviews and auditions for new table games employees. All current Casino Service Team Leads that are able to perform the new supervisory duties will be offered the new position.
