Casino Math: Essential Skills for the Gaming Industry (2010)

This workbook is part of a series developed through a two-year project initiated by the Canadian Gaming Centre of Excellence (CGCE), a subsidiary of Manitoba Lotteries. While the project focused on meeting the training needs of Aboriginal or new Canadians, the material could be relevant for any new or potential employees in the gaming industry.

Designed to be used by both learners and teachers, the document is divided into two separate parts. The first section offers a review of the underlying math skills required in most gaming jobs, including working with fractions; counting cash; converting currency; and estimating. For each topic, the authors provide a description of the skill; practice exercises for the learner; and teaching tips.

The second section deals with what the authors call “job families” and contains practice questions organized according to specific kinds of gaming and casino jobs. For example, learners who need to develop skills for calculating odds and payouts specific to table games will find relevant math skills exercises in the “Casino Table Games” section.

The seven workbooks in the series are available for download at this address: http://www.gamingcentreofexcellence.ca/essentialskills/downloadableresources.cfm.
