Why are Monagesques not allowed into Monaco's casinos?

I have tried finding the answer but all the websites just state the rule without explaining it. Are the locals allowed to work in a casino?

Because only the one who owns the casino is certain to win ;-)

2. Re: Why are Monagesques not allowed into Monaco's casinos?

the reason is old

when they created casino, they didn't want local people and not expert lost their money in in the casino (they prefer take money from foreigner, tourists...)

it's a social law to avoid poor people after

it's switzerland, you have sometimes the same law

it's not true in Monaco but in some cities, they do not build casino in the city center for the same reason (to avoid temptation)

I found a text about restriction in switzerland (but it's in french ;-)
