The boxman (person) is your key to your relationship with a selected casino. A
good boxperson, doing his job, will spot serious players and offer a player card
so that the casino can track your gaming action. This will provide you the benefit
of receiving full "comps" for all the time and for the investment that you make into
the game with your bank.
The boxperson will coordinate the data entry of your
initial and ongoing investments into the game and will also track your average
wager. This will have a dramatic effect on the courtesies that will be provided to
you by your casino of choice. In situations where a spouse might be playing or
obvious partner players a good boxperson will gang your action into one
player card so that you can receive maximum casino "comps" in a shorter
period of time. This can have a dramatic effect on players who have a short
schedule during a specific trip or "session".
The boxperson can also help you
win by seeing to it that the dealers provide you appropriate service and
information about the game. Naturally this will depend on the specific
boxperson and the limitations of specific casino policies on disclosing
information about the game. By tracking your action you also can receive
certain advantages when it comes tax time, especially if you score a major win
at some time because gambling winnings can be written off against losses
provided that you have the proper documentation to show to the IRS.
If you are
a serious player you need to be very selective about your casino of choice and
you need to develop rapport with the boxpeople and floorpeople in order to
receive the full benefit of your gaming action and investment.
