Eddie Mush was a degenerate gambler.
He was the world's biggest loser.
He was "Mush" because everything he touched turned to mush.
Never mind. I need a winner.
At the track, the teller would give him his tickets ripped up.

They do at least in a superstitious sense. I dealt blackjack in international waters for a bit and it was done just to shake things up & try to force some kind of change on some 'streaks'. We didn't have a particular cooler though, just any hink in the roll was considered enough. It is funny to note, however, how some dealers were considered consistently unlucky or lucky by management.
