Casino dealers are entrusted with fairly dealing to all players and upholding the rules of the game. The casino expects that they honor all rules so players can enjoy their games and the casino itself can make money. Before they provide this trust, the casino will do a thorough set of background checks on the new dealers.

Criminal Background Check

All employees of casinos must endure a criminal background check. A casino won't hire anyone whose background shows a conviction for financial or violent crimes. For example, if you were convicted of embezzling funds from your previous employer, the casino is unlikely to trust you with the cash on the table. The casino is also unlikely to want to have an employee with an unpredictable personality who has been convicted of violent crime.

Gaming License

Each casino employee must pass a background check to get her gaming license, which is required for virtually every casino employee in the U.S. However, different states require different types of licenses with different fees and applications. The background check will show whether you have obtained the license for the dealer position in that state.

Reference Check

Casino dealers will most likely also need to pass a reference background check that will include former colleagues and bosses. The casino will inquire about the individual's trustworthiness, his ability to act under pressure and his competency with numbers. The job applicant should first check with each of these people to make sure that he will receive a favorable and honest review.

Employment Check

The casino will conduct an employment check to make sure the aspiring dealer was employed at each of the locations where she claimed to have worked. This is especially important if the dealer claims prior experience at other casinos. The new employer can confirm each of these records through state and federal employment records.
