 n.Note: The usual use of “junketeer” is to refer to a person who takes a junket, not the person who organizes it. «Junketeers organize casino trips that often include free meals, rooms or even transportation for customers. They’re generally paid based on how much their customers gamble or are expected to gamble.» —“New junket rule gives Indiana casinos a piece of the action” by Lesley Stedman Weidenbener Courier-Journal (Louisville, Kentucky) July 5, 2008.
