The salary range of a casino dealer can be anywhere from $14,000 to $58,000 a year, depending on a variety of factors. The biggest factors in the wide salary range are the casino's starting pay, whether the position is hourly or salaried and the actual location of the casino.

A casino's starting pay for an hourly dealer can be as low as minimum wage up to around $12 an hour with periodic raises. Most casino dealers make the majority of their money through tips from the casino's patrons during prime hours. The success and location of the casino greatly affects the quality of tips.
