Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
The Casino College, with Casino Dealer Schools in Phoenix, Arizona & Detroit, Michigan is betting they can get 100 of their graduates to deal this June's World Series of Poker event in Las Vegas, Nevada. To put the odds in their favor the Casino College has developed a special Poker Dealing Course covering nearly a dozen variations of the game and are having secret WSOP insider connections fly into their Phoenix campus for regular visits to deal out tips and advice to get students audition ready. "We're very confident that we'll achieve our goal with this" commented Sharon Watts, Director of the Casino College, going onto say "They'll be hiring around 400 part-time Poker Dealers just to cover the event and we can make this happen."
To sweeten the pot, the Casino College has added a side bet - They'll cover the cost of lodging during the two-day audition stay for any graduate that successfully lands a spot dealing the big event, but some restrictions do apply. Once hired, dealers can make up to $20,000 for the two month long event. When asked for the inspiration behind the challenge, Watts stated "We were approached by someone close to the event, who we've worked closely with before in the past, asking us to send over some of our dealers to audition for the event, so we figured this would be a fun thing to do for our students".
Casino College graduates will still have to go through the same audition process as everyone, by applying online at Harrahs.com & heading out to Las Vegas for an in-person audition held in April & May, however Watts thinks her graduates will have a definite edge, "With our track record of creating highly trained Casino Dealers, combined with the special Poker Course we've created, that really nobody else can touch, our graduates will definitely stand out from the packe - even dealers with years of experience". Due to the length of the course, prospective students need to enroll and get started immediately to take part in the challenge.
The Casino College also offers training and job placement assistance for Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and other popular casino games.
