I currently work in Table Gaming (Australia) and have been in the industry for the past 10 years. A position has become available in the Surveillance department and I am interested in crossing over for a the rest of my time with this company.

I will be moving to Las Vegas at the end of 2015 and ideally would like to work in the Table Gaming department once there, my question is "Will working in Surveillance here, hinder my chances of being employed in a Table Gaming department in Las Vegas?"

I know that here once I cross over I am unable to return to gaming in my own casino and must look for work else where if I wish to go back to the tables.

Its the same here in Vegas. Once your in Surveillance there is no going back and you can not transfer to another department within the casino.

Mojavedxer can you tell me do you think if I work in Surveillance here will it effect my chances of working in table gaming there?

NLVgal you cannot cross over in the same casino as you know what kind of coverage the casino has, potential black spots and a lot of other secrety stuff.

As long as you can deal the major six games and have the connections in the pit to get hired. Previous experience working the eye at another resort should not be a problem or any concern.

Casino security has always fascinated me, since long before I moved here. I think I would thoroughly enjoy working in that field, and couldn't imagine going from that to dealing - I would see it as a step backward.

But that's me. YMMV.

The reasoning could be financial. Dealers make a helluva lot more than eyes in the sky.

Depends on the location. Smaller joints it can be the opposite, especially for day shift.

Absolutely, For some its a lateral move or a slight improvement while at a high end house you would be taking a pay cut until you moved up to a lead or shift supervisor position. The benefit of surveillance is that you avoid all the politics the pit has to offer.

You are not missing a thing. It's even more boring than regular Security duty. And, you don't get to mix with staff - it's like you're on the outside looking in.

My hat is off to the people who do it - I couldn't. They have to stay focused, on task, and know the tricks to watch for. It takes a special type.
