Why?
Sometimes the dealer has to check the whole card to see if he has blackjack. If you have say 15 and decide to stay and the dealer accidently gives you a card it might not be by accident. Many years ago I did not catch this until it was brought to my attention.

Craps is another one that pays dividends. Take the spot next to either of the dealers. Donít be surprised when you get over paid.

Smaller casinos are prime candidates for this.

Standard tip in Israel is 12%...if they are Israeli w/ the service it drops to 10%...and if they are really really Israeli, there is Amex.

I tipped $5 on a delivery of chinese food to newark airport (delivery itself was free) and the guy practically started dancing with joy.
in thailand i tipped a taxi driver about .50 cents (15 baht) after a 40 min drive that costed approx. $7 (215 baht) on the meter, and he was so excited!
the best is, if u need to get somewhere quickly (granted there is no traffic, which is more than a disaster here) u give the guy 100 baht ($3.25) and he will go 160 kmh the whole way!
