Slot Operations Oral History Project

Slot Operations Oral History Project was made possible through the generosity of the UNLV University Libraries Advisory Board. The Oral History Research Center enables students and staff to work together with community members to generate this selection of first-person narratives. The participants in this project thank the university for the support given that allowed an idea the opportunity to flourish.In 2016, the Center for Gaming Research undertook a series of interviews with slot managers in order to capture the complexity and history of this position. This interview is part of that series. Interviews were conducted by David G. Schwartz (Director of the Center for Gaming Research). Schwartz's book Tales from the Slot Floor: Casino Slot Managers in Their Own Words, was published by UNLV Gaming Press in 2018.
