My name is Fitz. I am a working Pit Boss in a brick and mortar Casino and have spent over forty-five years in management and customer service.
Go back to Las Vegas in 1968 in a now defunct casino called the Mint Hotel. In this period of time, going to a Casino was about the fun, the glamour, the shows, great food, and absolutely the gambling. Here comes a green kid from the Midwest that wants to learn this business. He breaks in as a dealer and makes a 20-year career in the Casino Industry. He works in and out of the Casino business then takes his management skills to other private sector and government fields, but decades later, he is drawn back to the Casino industry like a kid to a circus.
Fast forward to today, over 40 years later and look at the renewed business.
Las Vegas still refers to itself as the “entertainment capitol of the world”, and rightfully so, but the Las Vegas gambling monopoly is gone, eroded like the Grand Canyon, first by Atlantic City, then by an unbelievable number of tiny Casinos all over the country. There is even a riverboat Casino in “Superman’s home town” of Metropolis, Illinois. (Who knew?) Today you don’t need to travel to Las Vegas to play because a Casino is as convenient to your doorstep as a 7-11. That convenience is why I have written this. The Casino is now close to your home, and you can drive there to have a good time. Enjoy yourself. Good Luck!!
