Don't you need a Sheriff's card? That requires being fingerprinted.

There's no requirement from gaming, no. You could just have someone privately teach you, or if you can figure it out -- teach yourself.

Once you do get hired, you have to pass a background check and get fingerprinted, though.



Interesting, I believe there is a requirement here. To supervise you need a year or so on the floor. At least that is what I have seen. I do remember in dealer school the instructor was demonstrating payouts and put up a barber pole. He asked if anyone could read it. He said he new we couldn't, but joked if we could he would "invent" the 1,500 (or whatever) hours we needed for the GCB and sit us in box.

I don't think it's called a Sheriff's card, but you need some sort of "license" or approval kind of a thingie. It's just some thing in the system, I never got any actual "card" that I could show as proof that I was a dealer. That requires fingerprint and background check, AFAIK.

I believe the drug test is a company policy, not anything mandated by gaming.

I'm not sure if there is any requirement to be on the floor. I believe you have to pass a Title 31 test, maybe, or if that's just company policy. I was going to be promoted to a floor position at my first job (after definitely less than a year), they had me "take the test", which was basically where the shift manager sat next to me and gave me "helpful hints" in filling it out. Not that I needed the help, because I already knew much of the stuff on it. I didn't take the position because I ended up getting hired at another casino.

But I've noticed that many places outside of NV require dealers to have a physical "dealing license", or something like that, on them at all times.

In Atlantic City dealers had to have a list on
Their badge of all the games they dealt.
They also had to pay a fee every year for each
Game they dealt.
This is no longer required.

The fingerprint, drug test, and background check makes absolute sense. Last thing you want as Casino manager\owner is to hire a crooked dealer to work in your property. Of course there is the very real possibility of the dealer becoming a Crook after being employed on your property, kind of like the 19 year old who passed Starbucks background check when they were hiring her but later copied a customers' bank card information and went grocery shopping at Ralph's, using 212 of the stolen bank card information,(She was fired after the irate customer returned like a day or two later to confront her and get her to admit she took a picture of the bank card information and stole from her)but at least you know they came across as clean when you were interviewing\hiring\training them)
