The floorman's job is varied. Being the one executive in constant touch with the players, he is supposed to put on a friendly front and to chat and be courteous to the gamblers. At the same time, he watches the games and makes certain that no cheating is going on, that no card counters are hurting the casino's bankroll, and that the bankroll is being protected at all times.

The job can be both grueling and boring at the same time and the suspicious and unsmiling faces a player often encounters while at the table are not those of pit bosses, but of floormen.If a high roller, a stranger to the casino, is at the table, floorman may hover around, getting acquainted with the player as best he can, offering him the services of the hotel so that he continues gambling at that club.

However, with the rise of monumental, thematically designed gambling palaces in recent years, such as the MGM Grand, Mirage and Treasure Island in Las Vegas and the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, to name just a few, the overhead or "nut" is tremendous. Entertainment alone costs these hotels millions of dollars per year, and the free drinks, cheap food, and other services offered the players to get their "warm bodies" into the casino runs into more millions.

To feed this constant nut, the big and opulent casinos need action from gamblers, and their definition of action isn't players who are going to try their luck at the tables with a series of $2 and $5 bets for a couple of hours. The casinos do make money from these players, but what they really want are the big bettors, the high rollers, who will think nothing of losing $50,000 or more at the tables in the course of a couple of days.

If they can't get the $50,000 players, the $30,000 gamblers will do as well, and if they can't get them, a $10,000 limit player is still preferable to a grind that loses $40 at blackjack after getting three free drinks, eating the special buffet lunch, and cashing in a free coupon for a lucky buck or a roll of nickels.
