In order to work at Rivers Casino, or any licensed gambling facility in the state, an employee who has been hired by the business must then apply for a license from the state Gaming Commission.

As of April 3, the Gaming Commission had received 1,211 applications from Rivers Casino since it opened on Feb. 8. That includes people who were hired, fired, quit, had their applications denied or were still being processed.
