Congratulations on the job! I know it sucks that you can't gamble there anymore, but think about it this way - you've scored yourself consistent employment and are saving yourself from blowing all of your money. Is there another casino near that one where you can celebrate by any chance?

Lmao awesome pun aside, OP is in Ohio. The only way they're getting to another casino "close by" is by leaving the state. We only have one or two since they only recently made them legal here.

I work for a gaming company myself, and I find it very difficult to believe they would hire you before you turn 21 as it is illegal for you to be on the gaming floor if you are under 21. Also, it is standard practice due to the gaming laws in most states to not gamble at the property you work for. Other casinos are not off-limits though, so you can still enjoy gambling other places!

#31 - It's highly dependent on state laws and the gaming company in question. Where I live and with the company I work for, it is okay to gamble at your place of work, as long as you're not wearing your uniform or ID badge. But other places tend to be much more strict, as they fear since you work at the casino you have "inside information" and could possibly rig a game to win.

I worked at a casino in California for 8 years, 31, and they all have different policies. For instance, the one I worked at allowed employees to gamble. They also offered payday advances if an employee needed it. Well, too many employees gambled their paychecks away and asked for payday advances, so they decided to take both away. That policy stuck until about 4 years ago. Some casinos don't care at all, some do. The only rule I've seen that's in every casino is dealers aren't allowed to play table games, and slot attendants aren't allowed to play slots. Collusion, and all that.

I work for a casino. Depending what you are hired to do you can be 18 years old or older. I'm security and was hired at 20. I know tons of 18+ people in my establishment. Every place is different but as long as you aren't pouring alcohol you can work there. Also depending on the policies they could have it set up where they can't gamble. Ours go by departments that you work in. OP casino can have it set up where no one can gamble or drink.

It is standard practice in most countries to not gamble at the property of employment or a even a property owned by the company of employment. I've worked in many different casinos in several different countries. The same rules apply everywhere. Doesn't matter if you work on the tables, waiting on the floor on reception.

yes, they can. I don't even work directly in the casino, I work for the hotel they run next door and its in my contract that I can't. a customer wanted to give me a chip as a tip but I wasn't even allowed to cash it. they're strict about that stuff. they have to be.
