What about the employees at these places-are they ever allowed to play in the casino? Or are there rules that state that if you work there that you cannot also game there, like lots of competition rules state that employees of the company cannot enter-and lastly, what about the family of employees?

I know that some states do allow their employees to gamble but only in their casino’s. I really don’t see a problem with it but I do understand that you are trying to say that they would know the ins and outs of the tables and slots. I don’t think they would have that much of an edge over a regular player.

I can’t see how a staff member is going to have any kind of edge over anyone else when using a computer controlled slot machine. After all, it’s the computer who holds all the cards….

They are not allowed, I don’t think so. But their families can play in the casino they work in. They earn more than the gamblers in wages, including tips and benefits. Those who work in a gaming/casino industry, employees earn higher average salaries than those who work at the motion picture industry, amusement and recreation centers, and the hotel/motel industry.

Well that would depend on tips though I guess. The jobs I have seen advertised in casinos didn’t pay that much, certain not compared to the other industries that you mentioned.

I think it’s more of a casino rule rather than a states rule, although I’m not positive.  Most casinos do not allow their employees to play at the casino they work at.  However, I do believe, that they can play at any other casino.  I almost positive they can play at casinos not owned by the company they work for, and pretty sure they can play at their company’s casinos that are out of the states they work. (For example, if they work in Indiana, they can play at their company’s casino in Vegas.)  Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Well there are no rules at casinos but still being a private property they can allow/reject anyone or everyone. Mostly employees don’t play at their casinos but I have heard that in Las Vegas casinos, majority of them aren’t allowed to play at other casinos as well.

Well there are restrictions on employees and ex-employees too. They can’t play in their own casino. But I never knew they are barred from playing at other casinos as well. BTW how do they keep track of other casinos employees?
