Dealer says
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
