We run a small horse racetrack and casino in our juristiction and are currently reviewing our employee play policy. The policy for horse betting is currently open to employees as long as they are not on duty. This has provided some issues in the past as management is technically on duty whenever visiting the location whether officially or not.
What is your policy for betting at your own location? Do you allow it? Is simulcast betting permitted?

We are a small casino. Rules for employee gaming are by department. For instance, Guest Services employees can game, but not accumulate points in a club account; slot department employees can game at tables, but not on slot machines, etc. Employees can game until a half hour before their shift, and anytime after a shift. They must not be in uniform or wearing their gaming license. The Gaming Commission, Surveillance and IT are never allowed to play. In my opinion, management in your operation would fall into that category. Protecting our image to the public is our main priority in establishing our play rules.
Thanks for your input, that's great. I'm planning on recommending that management definitely cannot play and considering how small of region our locations are, I will likely restrict gaming for any gaming personnel (as our slot and table departments are merged).
In our location, we do not permit any of our employees to collect points as it opens up the risk of collusion between the guest services staff and other personnel.
