One of the fascinating things about a casino is the fact that it takes a lot of people to make sure that it works. Today, TCGOP will be discussing the different people that you see on the casino floor. We will also be touching upon the people—the workers—that you may come across but do not really see.
Each one of them plays a vital part in making sure that the floor operates suitably. Last month, we discussed the position of the gaming and casino supervisor. In this article, we will be looking into the other people and positions that you can normally come to expect at a casino.
Here they are:
These are the faces of the table games. Often suitably dressed and wholly professional, they are usually in charge of card games like blackjack and poker. You can also expect them to be the ones that operate the roulette and other dice or ball games.
There are often security team members that are dressed clearly and then there are those that are in plains clothes—blending in with everyone else. They are at the very frontlines of the war against those that try to cheat or try to do anything illegal within the premises.
The security team is also the ones in charge of handling any unruly guests that may pose a danger to themselves or others. The world we have right now is pretty scary. More and more people are seemingly off their rockers and are actively causing harm. It is the security team of a casino that you can rely on as the first responders and the first line of defense in times of trouble.
These are the smiling faces that you will see when you first step into the premises. They are the ones that are usually assigned to special parties or VIP guests. While they are not butlers or anything so odd, they are the ones that often provide perks or additional services.
Hosts are often found at the concierge desk of the casino or hotel. In specific areas on the floor like at the slot machines, there are usually hosts assigned as well. Each host usually has a specialty in order to suitably help guests with their needs.
These are the friendly faces that you see when you buy or exchange your chips. They are often the faces that you see when you make bets or partake in sports betting. For those that work in the casino industry, tellers are often called the gatekeepers to all the wealth.
Tellers often come with accounting experience as they need to be able to keep a sharp eye on the funds and do a suitable accounting of the expected amount that should be in—as presented by the system.
As You Can See…
It takes a small army to ensure that everything works well. It also takes a small army to ensure that you, the precious guest, is able to have a smooth and positive experience.
