What does it cost to learn a game?

Blackjack is $299 and Craps is $349. These are the two most popular games. We offer a combination of both games for $500 complete. Our prices include your registration fees, books and casino job placement assistance. There are no hidden costs of any kind. We also offer courses in Roulette ($299), Poker ($799), Pai Gow Poker ($299) and Mini Baccarat ($299).

When can I attend classes and how long does it take?

You can start any day of the week, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 7:00 pm (except for Poker which is taught Monday through Thursday between 11am and 4pm with Friday being a practice-only day from 9am to 7pm), and Craps which is taught between 11am and 7pm). We work around your schedule. We move you at your own pace. Most students attend classes four days a week, 3-5 hours per day, for 3-6 weeks. Some students go more often, some go less, depending on the individual.

Should I learn more than one game?

Not necessarily. It’s an individual thing. Knowledge is power. The more games you know the better, if they are good games. If you learn two games, and you deal them crisp and clean, then yes, it’s of value. If you learn three or four games at a mediocre level, it’s of no value. I was a casino GM for fourteen years and when I hired dealers I’d look for personality, attitude, ability to deal – in that order. A person’s ability to deal will always improve, but if they have a bad attitude now it may get worse next month. Casinos figure your skill level will always improve. What they look for is the package; a nice individual with a good attitude and ability to deal.

Is age an issue?

It is not. Personality and attitude are the issues. The only reason that age enters into it is that some older people are mad at themselves for not having achieved great success and they often carry that negativity with them. A young kid is aggressive, happy, upbeat and excited… and casinos want people who are excited. They want someone who will draw customers to the table. It’s not necessary a 21-year old girl that gets all the attention. People of all ages can draw people if they have a positive attitude. On the plus side, mature people are better in many ways in terms of dependability, always showing up prepared to work, and with our party days behind them. Mature people are considered a quality product for most casinos. In a good casino corporation, they will move up the ladder.

How much experience do your instructors have?

Our dealing instructors are either full-time dealers or have extensive dealing and casino experience. Most instructors are currently employed as full-time dealers in their respective games.

How to Be a Great Blackjack Dealer.

Want to increase your earning potential and likability as a blackjack dealer? You can learn how to be a great blackjack dealer even before getting hired or trained. The casino or dealing school you attend will teach you the actual mechanics of how to shuffle cards and handle chips, and they'll give you manuals about game protection and efficiency, but they won't teach you about making good decision, working with the pit bosses, and handling your players.
