What is a Junket?

A junket, originally, referred to a kind of trip that was paid for by another party, such as a government trip at public expense (via tax dollars).

Now, a junket has come to refer to trips in general, or a trip that is sponsored by another party, outwardly resembling a business trip, at times, but really for pleasure and enjoyment.

More on Junkets

Businesses might take their teams out on a junket to attend a week-long or weekend conference or industry event, for example.

Many casinos will sponsor junkets to some high rollers to get them to come back to their casino and gamble money by comping their rooms and meals.
