Harvey L. Weisenbaum, Director of Operations for the Winfield Corporation who own and control many of the casinos around the world stated that he had met with dealer representatives from their various casinos, and he was taking their concerns to the Board of Directors who will meet in Las Vegas in early May.
"It's a drastic step, it is how it has been done for many years, it's what the public expects, I don't know if the wording can be changed or not, it's tradition. I see where you guys are coming from but, well, I don't know what to say," Weisenbaum added.
The concern of both male and female dealers, from around the country, concerned the terminology used during the first roll of the dice on the crap tables, and the use of the term, "Coming out." They feel that the term has taken on connotations that are embarrassing for the dealers to declare.
Burt Woodall, dealer at the Sands, indicated that his using the term "coming out" had led to a number of "incidents" upon leaving the tables to go on breaks. "Once I had four guys follow me when I left the table, it was kinda spooky," Burt stated. "I think there may be other things we can say, maybe just, 'Shot and Got.'"
