To address the question, posed by the title of this thread, seems to have been lost in the musings of Mr Majestic.
And, NO, "high -roller" tables, or any table for that matter, (in a legitimate, licenced casino) never needs to cheat.
The nature and compulsion of the game, is such that more than 65% of all money that goes across the table, in return for providing chips, jetons, tokens, or whatever you want to call them, stays in the house coffers.
Turnover may extend the life of the chip-bank, but the (individual player) outright losses, bite big chunks out of it, and even when a coup is hit, the house %, keeps a little for the service.
Whales or minnows, the rise and fall of fortunes effects them all on the same level, where the game is concerned.
Have played alongside the so described, "high- rollers" and, can say that I would consider none of them to be actual advantage players.
They were looking for the favourable streak, just like everybody else.
(Just from a much higher input point!)
The one major difference I have noticed, is that the "HR's" are treated with a feigned courtesy, and some consoling reactions (from staff) when they hit a dead patch.
As I have mentioned previously, there is a heady atmosphere and theatre attached to this salon game, and watching money being burnt, is only part of it, so is resisting the temptation to throw caution to the wind!

See I would prefer to not be offered free stuff or treated nicely - I would rather just show up, win what I came to win and leave. I know a lot of high rollers who can afford to lose silly amounts are just playing for the fun of it and probably enjoy the attention and free stuff, but if I find the dozens system works consistently well enough to build up my bankroll, I really would prefer to just get my £500 or £1000 for the day and get out. But if I'm there doing that every day I imagine it will irk them after a while. Sure, they have people that win far more than that but generally those people also lose, as they just throw money around the table hoping to win. Advantage players obviously get identified and counter measures applied, but would they bat an eyelid at someone winning £500-1000 near enough every day? I imagine they would not be happy about that. Especially my local casinos which only ever seem to have pensioners playing for small amounts in there, keeping out of the cold.
