Working from home

There are some jobs at an online casino which you can do remotely. For example, customer support, affiliate manager, developer, etc. About 10 years ago it was much more easy to find a job to work remotely than nowadays, so you need to be lucky to find this opportunity. Because there are much more qualified and experienced employees than 10 years back it's more easier to find good staff and they prefer to have the employees in their office to have some kind of control.

Salary expectation

Of course you want to know how much you earn working at online casino. Like with all jobs this depends a lot of your experience, skills and country where you will work. If you have a lot of experience and good skills you can easily earn between 3000-6000 euro per month. If you don't have experience you will likely start with 2000-4000 euro. But again this differs a lot.

Affiliate Managers and some VIP/Retention managers work mostly on a combination of fixed salary and commission. This can be a percentage of the profit or a fixed fee per delivered player.

Final tips for working in an online casino

Working in an online casino is exciting and you can earn good money if you grow in the company. Most casinos are young companies where it's fun to work but on the other hand you need to deliver results to be able to grow. The competition under employees is big so there might be a pressure to bring the results they ask from you.

When you start working for an online casino we advice you to study the casino site, the company behind the casino and play many games to get the feeling of your new job.
