Whenever you hear the term “metaverse,” your mind undoubtedly turns to Hollywood. From early depictions of digital space in “Tron,” to the ultra-realistic digital world of “The Matrix” and the more relatable gaming world of “Ready Player One,” the metaverse always appears to be a world reserved for movie makers and gamers. 

Yet, so many people already live and work there. Social media platforms, 3D online games, online shopping, and even online casino games in both augmented and virtual reality are all instances of the metaverse in which real people work and earn a living. 

Find out what it is and the kinds of jobs you’ll find in the metaverse — specifically for live dealers and other casino employees.

What Is the Metaverse?

The term metaverse was first introduced in Neal Stephenson’s 1992 science fiction novel “Snow Crash” and has since been used to describe the totality of virtual and augmented reality.

In the metaverse, you can do all sorts of things. You can play games, socialize with people, buy and sell things, and even learn. By this definition, you could pretty much call every online platform you use a part of the metaverse.

However, the key differentiator is that — strictly speaking — the metaverse is a 3D world where you can interact with others through avatars or other digital representations of yourself.

The metaverse is also not understood as a single platform or technology but rather as a network of different virtual worlds that are all connected. The idea is that it’s supposed to be a really immersive experience that should make one feel as if one is actually in the virtual world rather than just looking at it on a screen.

What Job Opportunities Are There in the Metaverse for Casino Employees?

Technological development is still far from the huge parallel digital reality in which people can put on a bodysuit and headset for total immersion. That said, plenty of jobs already exist in the developing metaverse landscape. Many of these career paths are already well-established, while some are still emerging, and others are incredibly niche but growing. While there’s still work to be done, there’s no doubt that the metaverse is the future of casino jobs, offering more accessibility and flexibility — from remote work opportunities to flexible hours and global reach. 

Ready to enter the ground floor of a new industry with incredible potential? Read on for a round-up of the best job opportunities in the metaverse for live dealers and casino employees.

Virtual Casino Dealer

Countless online casinos, including BetMGM Casino, already offer live dealer jobs, which are currently the most widely available types of metaverse jobs for casino employees. So, what can you expect? Like in a real casino, as a virtual casino dealer, you’ll manage virtual tables for popular online casino games like blackjack, poker, and roulette. The difference is that everything, including the cards, chips, and wheel, is digital, and you interact with player avatars through a VR/AR interface.

It’s relatively simple to transition from a dealer job to a live dealer job since you already have the necessary game knowledge and social skills for player interaction, even in a virtual space. Of course, it never hurts to upskill. If you have your eye on a live dealer job, it’s worthwhile getting used to wearing/using VR/AR headsets; that way, you’ll figure out the interface of leading metaverse and online casino platforms. It could also be helpful to brush up on basic coding to understand how the digital game mechanics function.

Metaverse Casino Guide

This is an emerging job opportunity for casino employees in the metaverse and revolves around leading groups or individuals on tours of metaverse casinos. A metaverse casino guide provides important information, answers questions, and steps up as the welcoming, friendly face of virtual gambling meccas.

Most casino workers will adapt seamlessly to a role like this because they’re already well-versed in engaging audiences, explaining games, and creating a sense of excitement. Your knowledge of the casino world will essentially act as your tour guide ‘script.’

Metaverse Customer Service Representative

Every metaverse and online casino needs customer service reps to keep their players happy and assist them in placing bets. As such, this is another well-established metaverse job casino employees will be interested in. This career path involves assisting with account issues and technical difficulties, explaining metaverse concepts, and mediating disputes on a gaming platform.

If you currently operate in a similar role in a brick-and-mortar casino, your patience, problem-solving skills, and ability to communicate clearly under pressure will serve you well in a metaverse customer service representative position.

Online Casino Game Designer or Consultant

If you love casino games and have some technical ability, this niche job opportunity could be a great fit — although it’s likely to be freelance/once-off project-based. Your job would involve collaborating with developers to make metaverse casino games more exciting, fair, and easy to navigate. You’d draw on your unique perspective as someone deeply familiar with ‘the other side’ of the table. After all, you know how games feel, so you can spot loopholes and understand what makes a game rewarding. Developers often lack this practical insight.

Remember, the metaverse is in its early stages. Job titles and roles can be fluid and might not perfectly conform to traditional job descriptions. Also, while still new, the potential of metaverse jobs is attracting many, so try to stand out by highlighting your unique casino industry experience and brushing up on your technical skills wherever possible.

How To Apply for Casino Jobs in the Metaverse

Have you decided it’s your destiny to move to the metaverse? Then, you need to learn how to apply for casino jobs in this evolving space. Metaverse-focused job boards like and should be your first stop. These boards cater to the evolving needs of the virtual work market. 

Also, don’t shy away from scouring cryptocurrency and blockchain job boards for opportunities — many metaverse casinos utilize blockchain technology, so these job boards will often feature suitable listings.

Another sure-fire way to find metaverse job listings for the casino industry is to search through general freelancer platforms. While you won’t find any full-time jobs here, it shouldn’t be difficult to uncover project-based work and short-term contract opportunities. Reputable platforms include Fiverr, Upwork, and Toptal.
