I interviewed a former casino surveillance employee at a large Tribal casino for our blog. These were a few of the most surprising / interesting things I learned during our conversation: The surveillance team made highlight tapes of funny things caught on camera like people picking their noses while withdrawing money from the ATM. Contrary to what I expected to hear, in surveillance they weren’t taught how to count cards. A common crime that they would investigate was a person stealing someone’s TITO slip from a machine. Apparently a player can hold a casino liable if an employee says you won a big jackpot when, in fact, you didn’t. The background check for surveillance really isn't any different than any other position in the casino. Don’t plan on a very diverse casino career if you start in surveillance. Here's a link to the full interview.
