THE BENEFITS

Many casinos are part of large corporations and offer excellent benefits to their employees.

 

Bonuses and benefits are second only to medical benefits.

 

Some casinos also offer tuition reimbursement for job-related college classes and courses.

THE SCHEDULE

Some casinos offer 24-hour gaming and croupiers can work various shifts to suit their lifestyle.

Most croupiers work an hour and twenty minutes and then get a 20-minute break. This translates as you getting paid for regular and more frequent breaks during your shift.

FLEXIBLE LIEU TIME

Some casinos are offering personal time off as well as paid holidays.

Croupiers can earn paid time off each week for any time worked over their contracted hours, and can arrange their own days off or holidays way in advance.

THE PEOPLE

Croupiers meet people from all walks of life, this makes for good stories and unique personal experiences.


Plus there is always plenty of fun to be had with your fellow croupiers!
