On January 29 and 30, 2024, the first Bavarian Dealer Championship took place at the Casino Bad Füssing. A total of 16 dealers from all nine Bavarian casinos took part in the Bavarian preliminary round.
In seven demanding disciplines, the croupiers and croupiers had to prove their skills and professionalism. In addition to the classic work at the American Roulette and Blackjack table, the dexterity and mathematical skills of all participants were tested at 5 side events (Best Chipper – best sorting and stringing of chips, Best Mathematician – best mental arithmetic, Best Cutting Chips – best mixed stacking of chips according to specifications, Best Pushing Stacks – best skill in pushing the chips and Best Card Handler – best skill in handling playing cards). In all seven disciplines, the factors of hospitality, technical ability and game control were of great importance for a good rating.
In the end, after exciting competitions, Mrs. Dominika Hobzova from the Casino Bad Steben and Mr. Lukas Vanik from the Casino Bad Kötzting were able to qualify for the German Dealer Championship. These will take place from 9 – 11 April 2024 at Casino Baden-Baden.
