Employee Spotlight – May 2019

In recognition of Knighted Associates that best exemplify teamwork, ownership, and poise in casino operations.


Hunter Cole
Parkwest Casino Lotus

Hunter has been with Knighted for just over two years and is currently in the process of learning Tiles. Previously a barista at a local coffee shop, Hunter stumbled upon this position as he worked his way through Consumes River College. Supervisors describe Hunter as reliable, positive, upbeat, and dedicated.

He continuously goes above and beyond and has proven to be an asset to Lotus and to Knighted. His ambition and drive carry on to the rest of his peers. Thank you for all of your hard work, dedication, and positivity! Know that it does not go unnoticed!

John W.
Garlic City Casino

In the South Bay Area, the Garlic City Casino management team has chosen to highlight John Walias in this edition of the Knighted Writer! Known for his reliability and positive attitude, John takes great pride in his work and shows up every day, on-time and has proven himself to be nothing short of an asset to the Knighted team. During his time at Garlic City, John has done a fantastic job of building relationships with his team members and casino staff alike and his supervisors wanted to take this opportunity to thank him for exemplifying what being an outstanding Gaming Associate is all about.

John is a California native who, when not working, enjoys riding around in his new Tesla, reading up on other EV’s (electric vehicles) or enjoying his classic rock with surround sound. “If the walls aren’t shaking, it’s not loud enough” he jokes. But all jokes aside, John is truly a family man and he wanted to take this as an opportunity to highlight the most important people in his life. He and his wife of 36 years, Andrea (pictured above) have 3 children and 3 beautiful grandbabies, Andrea, Rebecca, Don, Tom, Tori, Jessica, Ella, Jackson, and Johnny. Shout out to John and his beautiful family! And shout out to John for showing up to work every day and giving 100%. We can’t thank you enough.
