(5) Individuals involved in security, including guards and game observers;

(6) Individuals with duties similar to those described in divisions (A)(1) to (5) of this section or other persons as the commission determines. "Casino gaming employee" does not include an individual whose duties are related solely to nongaming activities such as entertainment, hotel operation, maintenance, or preparing or serving food and beverages.

(B) The commission may issue a casino gaming employee license to an applicant after it has determined that the applicant is eligible for a license under rules adopted by the commission and paid any applicable fee. All applications shall be certified as true.

(C) To be eligible for a casino gaming employee license, an applicant shall be at least twenty-one years of age.

(E) Each applicant shall submit with each application, on a form provided by the commission, two sets of the applicant's fingerprints. The commission shall charge each applicant an application fee to cover all actual costs generated by each licensee and all background checks.

(F) Notwithstanding the requirements for a license under this section, the commission shall issue a casino gaming employee license in accordance with Chapter 4796. of the Revised Code to an applicant if either of the following applies:

(1) The applicant holds a license in another state.

(2) The applicant has satisfactory work experience, a government certification, or a private certification as described in that chapter as a casino gaming employee in a state that does not issue that license.
