How to Become a Casino Dealer in Colorado

Save

Casino dealers, which are also known as gaming dealers, are responsible for dealing cards, enforcing rules and conducting the game they are in charge of. Depending on the casino you work for you may be required to know the rules and regulations of several table games as a casino dealer may be moved from one game to another throughout the course of a work shift. The State of Colorado requires at least a high school diploma as well as certification in order to become a casino dealer.

Things You'll Need

  • Resume
  • Cover letter
  • Research casino dealer schools within the state of Colorado. Casino dealer schools, such as the Colorado Casino Dealers Academy or the I-Deal-21 Casino School in Denver provide training programs to educate and train potential casino dealers.

  • Select the program that will teach you the games you are interested in playing. While it may not be necessary for you to be fluent in every casino game, most casino positions require a solid understanding for all table games, such as craps, roulette and all versions of blackjack and poker. If you are interested in working at a specific casino, contact the hiring manager and ask what games their dealers must be fluent in.

  • Complete the dealer training program of your choice. The duration of training will vary according to the schedule you choose since many casino dealer schools offer flexible school schedules.

  • Compile your work and education resume and apply for casino dealer jobs within Colorado. The American Casino Guide states that Colorado has over 30 operating casinos. Contact the career service center from the casino dealer school you graduated from. Most dealer schools will provide services to assist you in resume/cover letter creation, as well as a list of open dealer positions.

  • Attend any job interviews you are offered. Be prepared to perform a table audition where the casino will test your gaming etiquette and knowledge. You may also be asked several hypothetical questions to determine if you have the skills to navigate players throughout their gaming experience.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not attend a school if they don't offer a career service center, since finding a casino dealer job can be complicated due to the high level of competition.
  • Never pay for a casino dealer school until you have read all informational materials provided by the school to ensure that it provides a modern and useful education. Seek referrals by graduates, if possible.
