Deciding on a career in the gambling industry? Not the ‘play the games’ part, but actually being employed by a casino institution. If this is your ideal industry and the entertainment part is of interest to you, the ultimate place to work would be Las Vegas Nevada.
Other ideal casino locations include Reno, Lake Tahoe and Atlantic City. These are known for the world’s biggest gambling settings, as well as the most entertaining. With the U.S. setting one of the highest bars for everything a casino should be and be able to offer, some might think that other countries find it difficult to compete. Places like Peru, Lima, Panama, Korea, the Philippines and Singapore also have a competitive range of the very best casinos.
Some may think that the employment rate and prospects in this industry can’t be that high, but if you look at the global scale of casinos, their ever-growing revenue and the major interest in tourism and travel experiences it brings to countries abroad. Travelling to casinos have thus become a big international tourist attraction.
Different opportunities when working for a casino
There are a variety of different jobs and roles to fill in a casino. These include dealing with one of the most popular games, blackjack. This role would generally be for a blackjack dealer. This is one of the most entertaining and exciting roles as blackjack is one of the most likely card games to win money, but also one of the most intimidating.
Other roles include everything from security guards to cocktail servers, to customer service reps that will ensure the happiness and allow for the customers/ casino visitors to have a safe, entertaining and stress-free experience. More roles also include being a teller, a bartender and other roles which allow individuals to delegate or rather instruct the many different games. The bartender might also have one of the most important jobs. Can you imagine a casino without alcohol? It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? That’s why it doesn’t make any sense. To be quite honest, if there’s no hard liquor, chances are there will be less enjoyable. Welcome to the psychology of humankind. Have a seat.
There are also people who work behind the scenes. These include people such as the security and surveillance teams/ officers, casino operations and administrative staff managers. There is also a sales and marketing department and a human resource department that allows for the overall safety and hiring of new and existing staff.
A casino is a real company. It is one of the industries that generate the most money and in an easy, sufficient way at that. This fun environment is nothing less than exciting and just makes one feel expensive and with a martini in hand, classy. When you’re an employee though, perhaps its safe to stick to soda. You could still pour it into a martini glass though. Here’s to the bright side of things.
The one industry that will never be able to fall, is believed to be the gambling industry. It is without a doubt an industry that accumulates some of the biggest revenues in the world, without too much hassle that is. It is thus set to be around for many years to come. How can this be true since most players lose money every day?
Well, although people don’t like losing money. The possibility of winning and gaining money might seem bigger and more worth it than any loss they experience inside the doors of the casino. See, gambling is not a thrill. It is attractive, the idea it creates and what it could be. The idea of also doing nothing to gain millions is just as attractive as the initial idea. People want to become millionaires and enjoy their lives rather than working and in today’ economy and perfect Instagram lifestyle splashed all over the web, it’s understandable as to why. All you must do is place a bet, sit back and hope for your luck or ‘by chance’ to kick in. Whether the industry is vied as good or bad, it is undeniable that there are a lot of issues the industry face daily, such as the following…
Although many might think that gambling has been accepted, there are many institutions, referred to as “pressure groups” that fight against the entire concept of ambling. These groups refer to gambling as an act that destroys lives and basks in the scrutiny of the industry daily. There are also many protest groups against the use of animals in gambling. On many occasions, horses and dogs are used in racing tournaments and bet upon to win. Although their point of view is quite strong, there is no doubt that horse racing will prevail for many years to come. With the use of technology, one can even place bets on horse racing with the mere use of their cell phones.
A restrictive regional law
In the same breath of placing bets on your phones, it is only legal in countries that have legalized gambling. If it is legal in your location, you can easily and conveniently download the betting application, but in other circumstance could be heavily prosecuted if you do.
Diluting of the industry
With technology, gambling has to reach online status and is a major platform for scams and cons. One may think that placing a bet online is safe, but on the contrary, anyone can develop an app or stage a betting platform, which make those who bet online susceptible to scams perfectly orchestrated by gambling scam artists.
