for tokes is something many dealers do routinely.
Whether it works for them or not on a particular customer
they forget quickly. I do not think a dealer has ever
remembered whether I toked last time I played.
1 have played a few hands without toking, the dealer
will give me a gentle hint about sharing my good fortune
by donating "something for the boys." I
just keep smiling and act as if I do not hear or do
not understand the hint. Usually the dealer stops
hustling me and accepts the fact that I am one customer
who has better uses for my money than giving it to
hustle is not too subtle. In Germany, I am told, a
dealer will shake the toke box in front of a winner
to demand a toke. The most gross I personally have
witnessed was at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, long before
it became a Hilton property. While making a circular
motion with his palm on his shirt pocket, the dealer
opened his mouth and stuck out his tongue as if he
were begging for food.
