Make

What is ‘Make’?

In a casino, make usually refers to a deck of cards. To make the deck means to shuffle it in preparation for the next game. It appears often in poker and also in other card games like blackjack. Make could also refer to the act of making a bet, making a win or loss, or making a decision in a game.

‘Make’ Explained

Make is common casino slang for shuffling the cards, usually used in relation to the deck itself – i.e. to ‘make the deck’. The term comes from the random shuffling which sets the deck as completely fresh – it has been built or made. In most card games, play starts with a brand-new deck (or a combination of decks, such as in blackjack) which is shuffled by the dealer or by a machine, ensuring the cards are properly mixed up and that the deal will be completely at random.

During play, the deck will be made several times over, usually when the cards are running short and there are not enough left to deal to every player. Some forms of stud poker will deal a single card to all players before the deck is reset; that’s if there are still enough cards in the game. The deck will then be made (or shuffled) and play starts again from the top of the deck.

In wider casino use, ‘to make’ means to undertake an action – to make a move. To make could mean put down a bet, to place a wager, to win or lose, to pick up cards or to take other actions and decisions during play. For example, a player can make a bet at the tables, make 21 in a blackjack game, make a hand in poker and make money from the tables by scoring some wins.
