You don’t have to be a gambler to enjoy the excitement and atmosphere that comes with gambling. You can go to states with legalized gambling and learn to work the tables. This allows you to be part of the excitement without having to literally gamble your own money. First, you have to get in a casino as an employee and then you need training to be a dealer.
When you first start out, you will most likely have a floor job. This means you will work the slots, the tables and anywhere you else you are needed. You help players when they have questions, possibly get their drinks and if they need chips or something else and don’t want to leave their machines, you may be asked to help with that. This is a ground level, get your foot in the door job but will help you pursue your dream of working in the casino.
While you are working the floor, take the time to make friends with the dealers who can teach you the ropes and ultimately help you become a dealer. You will have a lot to learn before you can take over a table.
It takes training and time to become a dealer. Not only do you have to be able to manipulate the cards (shuffle them and make it look easy and efficient), you also have to know the games you are dealing. You can’t very well go into a game of Texas Hold’Em dealing a game of Seven Card Stud. You need to either take formal training classes or get a mentor in the casino who is willing to help you learn. This is one of the best jobs in the casino. You make a good salary and you can also earn tips from the players. Good dealers are in high demand and it is worth your time to learn this trade if you want to work in the casino.
Casino jobs are only available in states with legal gambling and on Indian Reservations; however, they are good jobs that can pay very well when you are good at your trade. If you are interested, do some research, find a mentor and get started.
