In underground games, gamblers frequently place bets using any collateral they possess, transforming car deeds, heirlooms, and $5 bills into valid currency. Wager with confidence with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a Learn & Win casino table game seminar at Casino Dealer School (a $149 value), with locations in Bensalem, two miles from the Parx Casino, and Philadelphia, just across from Sugar House Casino and less than 20 miles from Harrah's.
Run by the Bucks County School of Bartending, the Casino Dealer School helps to mint professional dealers and outfit players with the skills needed to stay competitive at casino tables. The three- to four-hour Learn & Win package helps demystify common casino games with easy instructions and practice games of poker, craps, and roulette, as well as carnival games such as three-card poker and Shave the World's Hairiest Man. Guests can rotate among the tables and listen to certified dealers share their strategic wisdom on topics such as when to split or double down during a game of blackjack.
In addition to tips, tricks, and rules, guests take home strategy cards festooned with gambling odds and several emergency aces. Students munch on snacks and sip complimentary beverages while accumulating earnings using practice chips, and by the evening's end, the player with the most winnings receives a prize and an invitation to an underground Go Fish league.
