    Casino sportsbook ticket writers need dwindling fast

    We will always need a few but online betting is taking a toll. No need for many writers with kiosks and online betting...☹️. I failed to see this coming and feel pretty dumb considering I'm a sharp sports betting mofo...

    Seriously though.

    It's like they can just send you to the cage for all of it anymore. All they need to do is give the clerks the authority instead of calling in the manager and bam it's all done there whenever it's done in person.

    They are a small HR restructuring away from just that happening everywhere.

    Good Luck The General.

    I always go to the window.

    Takes too long to feed 5k into a machine plus many of my bets are lowered

    Kiosks are a pain in the ass, especially when you are trying to get a bet in right before the game is about to start

    Of course, you always have that black guy in front of you betting $5 on every fukking game on The card making his selections at the window! Making me get shut out!

    So true Big Joe. I used to freak out enough at the ticket counter line, books propbably watching for me to go postal as I pace in a small circle looking up front like it makes the line move faster all because any wait is too long of a wait.

    I would flip out in the kiosk line with some drunk dipshits capping at the screen.

    And then while they are making all these bets at the window, they keep looking at the screen to see how much they owe now. Then when they know they have a few more $ left to spend, they'll handicap a few more bets while everyone is standing there waiting!

    May have to move over and work in the cage for awhile until things pick back up. Sports book is slow going... Or buy 5 lbs of methamphetamine, grab a 3rd shift job at village pantry and seduce sexy female addicts for a period of time.

    They donít even staff them Monday - Wednesday at some books in Vegas. Just go to the kiosk. I prefer the kiosk over some dick with booze breath unable to put together a sentence.

    I'm back in action as a dual supervisor and ticket writer. Business is slow going, but the interaction with gamblers all day is like nothing else for me...I couldn't ask for anything more.

    It pays the bills and for me only, money doesn't matter. I came from a homeless shelter. I enjoy the business. I only seek happiness. Being able to pay the bills and working in sports betting is everything I want. Money means nothing to me. I desire happiness. That is all.
