I think gambling dealers might become automated, but I guess well have to wait and see

The task can easily be done by AI. It can already be done by computers. The only thing really keeping casino dealers alive are trust of customers. People want people dealing to them. In addition to the social nature of gambling, people want people dealing to them over computers or AI due to lack of trust. A computer dealing cards to a player, for instance gets already untrusting players to distrust more. If a computer pulls a 7 card 21 in blackjack, the player will immediately disavow the "rigged" game. They almost do so with humans and physical cards in front of them as it is.

casinos can't open if they don't have traditional gambling tables and the number of slot machines depends on the number of gambling tables the casino has. (at least in france)

I think it's an experiential want. We are currently dealing with online casinos and people still want to go out and see other people at a casino.

People go to have human interactions, make money, and have fun. People would likely stop going if they replaced human interaction with robots. But alas it is probably fairly likely that the job would be taken by robots.

People come to the casino for the experience, and a big part of that is the physicality and human interaction -- it's part of the entertainment sector, don't forget. Online casinos and virtual dealer machines inside the casino have existed for a while now and there are no signs that any of these will supersede the traditional table games.

This isn't a hard job to automate - which makes me question why it hasn't been automated before. I'm sure casinos will still employ people to keep the human element of the job
