Welcome to CruiseReviews!
Congrats on your first cruise! I am pretty sure that the Casinos are ran by Carnival Corporation's Casino Division. Unlike the Gift Shops and the Spa which are ran by outside sources.
I am not an expert on how the Black Jack tables work as far as Dealer rotation. However, member Jim C. most likely is. He is on a cruise right now, but I'm sure he'll comment upon his return.
The Casinos are not under Government Jurisdiction for regulation. However as a member of Cruise Lines International Association they have to adhere to the Gaming Guidelines which can be found HERE.
