An online gaming site that caters to the high stakes player is often referred to as a high roller casino. Most high stakes players are experienced players who have an aptitude for gambling. A simple definition of a high roller player is a person who bets with large amounts of money. However, even defining what constitutes “large amounts of money” varies from casino to casino. High stakes gamblers often receive lavish “perks” such as free private jet transfers, limousines, and use of the casinos’ best hotel suites, as well as other gifts and bonuses to lure them onto the casino’s gambling floors. The casinos often will even extend credit to their high stakes players so they will continue betting, as well as offer rebates on betting turnover or losses. High roller rooms at certain casinos even allow smoking to accommodate these large spending players. Although Hollywood movies tend to give the illusion that there are lots of glamorous high stakes players, in actuality big betters do not provide the major portion of revenues to the casino industry. However they can have a major effect on the net income of the high roller casinos that indulge them.
