A croupier was a casino employee who worked at a gambling table with dice.

A casino in the early-21st century novel Hotel Royale employed numerous croupiers. In 2365, the USS Enterprise-D encountered a planet, whose inhabitants had based themselves on the book. One of the croupiers there oversaw a game of craps between Lieutenant Commander Data and a man named Texas. (TNG: "The Royale")

In 2375, several holographic mobsters assumed control of Vic's lounge, Doctor Julian Bashir's holoprogram of a 20th century Las Vegas club. They immediately turned it into a casino, employing several croupiers. During the Deep Space 9 senior staff's attempt to reclaim the casino for Vic, one of the croupiers there exchanged some money into chips for Captain Sisko, and wished him good luck before his craps game. (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

The term croupier was never used in dialogue, but the scripts for "The Royale" and "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang" used the term. Casino employees who were using playing cards were identified as dealers, both in the scripts and dialogue.
