The world of gambling offers many exciting career opportunities. Following is just a short list of popular gambling careers.

Please note that we did not list any careers such as croupier, pit boss, casino manager, and such. Those are all low level salaried positions. Those people have to work all week and then wait for the paycheck. The paycheck has taxes already deducted form the total and it still take up to five business days to clear.

The best gambling careers are of the hands-on type, as casino player. The benefits are tremendous. After every session you can just walk up to the cage, with the chips, and get the cash for it. Plus, as a player you get to enjoy all the casino comps. And the more you play, the more they comp you. It really boggles the mind how casinos expect to make any money like that.

Many authors have come up with various Winning roulette systems; guaranteed to win money in the long run. The most popular winning roulette system is the old Martingale system. However, that system is old. The modern roulette system player has other choices that can be combined with the Martingale system.
