Hi, moving to NV in a week, I have several interviews linedup at several casinos. Here is my dilema. Some property's state i need a health card, some state a gaming card. I did some online research and found that the health card will cost me about 50 bucks and a TB test LOL ouch. but one property is requiring a gaming card. I was advised this is issued by the sheriff. but confused what this entails.

Hoping you folks who live there can help me out? and what kind of checks are they doing for gaming cards and health cards?

confused and packing...
thanks!

A gaming card is required in some positions [primarily those directly associated with gaming, direct gaming customer contact or money handling. It consists of a criminal background check and fingerprint check. It is done at the Metro Office on 6th an Fremont [unless they moved the office recently] You MUST have a referral from the HIRING company before you can go for it. It's going to take, up to, three hours or so of your time and is a pain in the xxx. Other then that it's no big deal if you haven't killed anyone recently.

Hi Dynimagelv

Thanks for the insight! Nope haven't killed anybody, only run in with the law i have ever had was a running a red light directly in front of a cop, then not noticing his lights for another 2 miles LOL.

Thank you again, and I will prepare myself for the long day i will spend there if the casino refers me in to get one!

Just chiming in with an update to Dynimagelv's info. They did move the Location for Sherrifs cards and Fingerprinting. It is on Cameron st. and Russell road in the newer LVMPD buildings.

Thanks. Where about back East? Just wondering how your Las Vegas experience has been, from a resident standpoint?
