Interviewing and Auditioning
Blackjack and especially poker have become incredibly popular over the past couple of years because they’re fun, exciting and challenging. Professional and celebrity tournaments can be seen on TV all the time and are held often in the local card clubs. You can play in the clubs, local card rooms, casinos, on-line, cruise ships or at home with your friends. But knowing how to play is a world apart from knowing how to play and win. It can be intimidating, especially when your own money is on the line. That’s where the Casino College can help. For those who want to play, we’ll teach you the mechanics, rules and terminology. For those who want to increase their playing ability and proficiency to win more often, we’ll train you in the skills, tricks and inside information the professionals use … all in the comfortable and friendly confines of our facility. Call us to learn more and find out about our reasonable rates and group discounts.
