Never worked a Casino before?  Here are position descriptions to help you understand the roles.

Position: General Manager 

The role of the general manager is to supervise all aspects of the casino, ensuring the casino is conducted according to Casino Operating Guidelines.

Position: Banker

The role of the banker is to supervise the cash cage. This includes documenting all cash cage transactions, ensuring the security of the chips and cash in the cash cage, and holding the cashiers accountable for the chips and cash they manage while on duty. The banker reports to the general manager and is responsible for cashiers and chip runners.

Position: Cashier

The cashier's role is similar to a bank teller's. The cashier interacts directly with casino players. Any transactions over $200 must be witnessed by the general manager, banker or cash cage advisor. The cashier reports to the banker and works with the general manager, banker, financial control supervisor, advisor, and casino players.

Position: Chip Runner

The chip runner opens and closes tables, delivers chip fills from the banker to game tables, delivers credits from game tables to the banker and may assist the general manager with other duties. The chip runner reports to the banker and works with the general manager and gaming table personnel.

Position: Count Room

Count room volunteers take on one of four possible jobs (which will be decided in the Count Room):

1. Sorter: Sorts all cash or chips by denomination

2. Counter: Counts the sorted cash or chips, by denomination

3. Recorder: Records the number of bills, coins, and chips counted

4. Amalgamator: Verifies the cash or chips counted and groups them into bundles and summarizes the cash and chips with the count room supervisor

 

If these all sound overwhelming, no need to worry – there are paid casino advisors whose job it is to train every volunteer at the start of each shift so no previous experience is necessary.  

If you (the parent) cannot help at the designated times - perhaps your child's grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, adult sibling, etc might be willing to help out our school.

Please contact Trina Jewison at tdjewison@shaw.ca if you would like to volunteer or would like more information.
