Top 3 Cool Jobs This Week: Gaming Law

By Casey C. Sullivan, Esq. on March 17, 2017 12:56 PM

When it comes to gaming, not all the action is on the casino floor -- nor is it all in Las Vegas. The domestic casino and gaming industry is highly regulated and massive, taking in more than $70 billion in revenues every year. That means plenty of opportunities for legal professionals who are as good at the law as they are at poker. (Unless you, like me, are terrible at poker. Then you'll need to be better.)

So, as part of our affiliate relationship with indeed, we're gathering up the best gaming-related jobs we could find. Get ready to roll the dice on these careers.

1. Corporate Counsel, Litigation, Caesars Entertainment

Join Caesars on the Las Vegas strip as corporate litigation counsel. As an in-house lawyer for Caesar's casinos, you'll be in charge of supporting the company in litigation management and liability issues. This includes overseeing general liability litigation, managing outside counsel, proactively reducing risks, and developing litigation strategies.

Caesar's doesn't care about your roulette game, but they do want you to come with a few years of experience in litigation and a "strong desire to learn the business."

2. Director of Regulatory Compliance, River City Casino & Hotel

You'll be rolling on the river as compliance director with this St. Louis casino, "nestled along the banks of the mighty Mississippi." As director of compliance for this seven-story hotel, casino, and event space, you'll be in charge of ensuring that federal, state, and local laws and regulations are met at the property level.

That means preparing and maintaining internal controls, working with operational leaders on policies and procedures, administering the company's anti-money laundering program, working with gaming regulators, and the like. This is not a lawyers-only position, either. Anyone with a degree in law, business administration, finance, marketing or related fields, and a few years of experience in the gaming industry, is invited to apply.

3. Compliance Manager, Massachusetts Gaming Commission

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is looking for a regulatory compliance manager to join its Gaming Agents Division. The compliance manager will be responsible for directing and reviewing internal controls and audits at gaming facilities throughout Massachusetts. This includes overseeing monitoring systems, managing regulatory audits, assisting investigators, and directing agents. As with the River City Casino compliance gig, this job is not limited to practicing lawyers, but could be a great fit for a legal professional interested in compliance and gaming work.
