High Rolling Nature
High rollers truly are an elite breed of gamers. Categorised as such due to their fondness of placing exclusively high stake bets in just about any given wagering circumstance, they have become an intrinsic part of an industry which in many ways relies on their frequent and active participation.
Rewarded for their tendencies by casinos aiming to attract them towards their games tables in the form of various ‘comps’- high rollers, as you may expect, lead a particularly lavish lifestyle.
As you may expect, high rollers most frequently compete directly against one another (and of course the house) via specially formulated high-stakes games. Similarly, different casinos have conflicting opinions on what exactly (or perhaps more accurately- how much money) marks a distinction between a regular ‘civilian’ player and a high rolling VIP.
For example, in the west’s most notorious gambling destination, Las Vegas, high rolling players are those able to keep up with table limits of up to $300,000. Though this may sound huge, there are houses elsewhere that strive to take bet limits for players of this kind that one step further, such as in the emerging gaming city of Macau, China- where ceiling limits per game have been known to clock in around the half million dollar mark!
