Drop: The amount of money that the players put into action with their play. This is the money the player brings to the game and puts at risk. For a casino, it can be measured by the sale of chips from the cage and tables and also by counting cash bets made. For instance, if a gambler brings $100 with him to a blackjack table and plays for several hours (winning and losing), the drop is $100. On the other hand, the handle (q.v.) may be several multiples of $100, as the player could accumulate large wins and then keep playing them until he or she decides to leave the table.
