Every manager and supervisor must be financially literate to advance their career in casino management. Managing expenses, a key aspect of performance reviews for managers, relies heavily on the ability to read financial statements. Since there is cash and cash equivalents moving around the casino facility like in no other business, the need for financial literacy is critical in the casino industry. Money exchanges hands at gaming tables and at the cage. Employees assume responsibility for banks and chip racks worth thousands of dollars. Extending credit and issuing comps have a material effect on the profitability of casinos. Money is everywhere and controls must be in place to avoid theft and embezzlement.
