Are the Sheriff's Card and Gaming Card two different cards. I thought the Sheriff's Card was for carrying a weapon and the Gaming was for employment in Casinos. Where do I obtain both? What is entailed in getting them? Thanks for any help!!!

The gaming card is for working in the casinos near the games. A sheriffs card (aka a guard card) is the card needed to be a security guard anywhere. I'm not sure if you need both to be a security guard in a casino.

There is no longer a Sheriff's card which was required for working in a gaming outlet. It's now called Gaming registration and to do that you must have a referral from a prospective employer to proceed. If you're hired in a gaming outlet, the HR department will give you a packet explaining the process of finger prints, filling out information, etc.

It used to just be Sheriff's Card. It was for any job where you'd be handling money in casinos. It was also required for certain sales jobs such as car sales. There have been changes over the years, and it either just changed again, or is about to. Your employer will tell you what you need. If you can't afford it, you can go to Nevada's JobConnect and they will pay for all the cards you need. Unless they have changed it, first you'd need to pick up their form, have the employer fill it out, and take it back to JobConnect. They will also pay for certain clothing or tools required for the job. You don't have to be collecting unemployment insurance benefits, but you do have to be unemployed and have a job offer with a definite date to start working. They'll need to see your Id's too ...DL plus SS card is best, and Green card if you need one. Requirements may have changed a little bit since I retarred, so see JobConnect,

No they are not the same thing anymore. If you work in the gaming industry here in NV. You are required to be NVGCB registered. It has been this way now for almost ten years.
