What Does a Casino Manager Do?

A casino manager oversees day-to-day operations, keeping watch over customers and dealers to make sure everyone is having a good time and following the rules. 

A casino manager, also called a gaming manager, supervises employees or managers in the gaming areas or pits. A big part of this task is making sure games follow all state and federal rules. 

Monitoring security, table games, slots and the overall gaming area means this manager is always moving, always alert. As this manager walks through the room, he or she will be checking in on employees and customers alike. 

One of the most important qualities of a successful casino manager (and a smooth operation) is the ability to solve problems quietly and efficiently.

The best casino managers make juggling all these tasks look easy. If you're diplomatic and find it easy to get along with and manage all types of people, this could be a good fit for you.
