Working as a Casino Host

Casino hosts are tasked with nurturing the casino's relationship with patrons in order to enhance customer loyalty and maximize profits. They send event invitations, respond to inquiries, solve customer issues, and report to marketing managers. They also provide varieties of services to casino players to convert them to regular and loyal customers to the casino. Casino hosts earn a median sum of $51,000 annually or $24 per hour.

Casino hosts primarily ensure that high rollers and VIPs don't gamble in other casinos that compete with their employers. They do this by offering an array of comps, such as free rooms and meals at the casino, that are meant to entice the high rollers to come and gamble. They determine what level of play warrants a complimentary night in the hotel's best suite and which warrants a free buffet.

Casino hosts typically hold a bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline. Although, some employers may not require an academic degree, opting for prior casino experience instead. But generally, a combination of business experience, excellent communication skills, and a professional and likable demeanor will get them a long way in this field.

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to being a casino host. For example, did you know that they make an average of $24.59 an hour? That's $51,140 a year!
