What You'll Get
Though appropriate in a casino setting, raising the ante with a $1,000 bet causes unnecessary roughness when seeing who can push the elevator button first. Learn appropriate gambling behaviors with today’s Groupon to the Casino College of Los Angeles in Lakewood. Choose between two options:
- For $75, you get a four-hour strategy course in poker, blackjack, or craps (a $150 value).
- For $575, you get a full casino-dealer course (a $1,150 value).
The Casino College of Los Angeles is a fully accredited casino school that teaches card sharks the ways of the one-eyed jack with introductory classes for beginner or experienced players and full certification courses for aspiring casino dealers. In the four-hour strategy course, students can choose to learn the ins and outs of poker, blackjack, or craps and roulette. Perfect your bluffs and avoid paper cuts in a fun environment with authentic equipment and materials similar to those found in actual casinos in Reno, Atlantic City, and Las Vegas.
For those looking to enter the world of professional card dealing, the Casino College of Los Angeles also offers full dealer-certification courses that qualify students for casino employment upon graduation. Pupils can choose to specialize in poker dealing—which covers equipment, rules, and more for Texas hold‘em, Omaha, seven-card stud, Mexican poker, and Hi-Lo—or table games, including blackjack, pai gow, Caribbean stud poker, and baccarat. Before completion, nascent card handlers must pass an audition that mimics casino hiring practices. Though marked as a 60-hour course, students can stay as long as they need to pass their certification, with full mastery taking anywhere from 150 to 250 hours, or nine games of 52-card pick-up. In addition to certification, this Groupon includes all books and supplies.
