CEG Dealer School Blog & News
Happy Birthday to our very own Lisa!!
We tried to get a picture of Lisa to go with this cake but no one could muster the courage to take the shot, not to mention that some idiot gave her a set of throwing knives for her birthday, so there’s that.
We jest of course! (umm but only a little ) It will all become clear in time…..
Lisa, is our Director of Education and Development (ahem The Dean of Dice) and the heart and soul of CEG. The pictures you see spread throughout our website are just a sample of the many students whose lives have been positively impacted by Lisa’s instruction and mentoring.
In just a few short years Lisa has helped transform CEG Dealer School into the premier destination for casino dealing students and teachers alike. Because of Lisa our students are recognized throughout the valley for their level of skill, personality and presence. As well, no other school can boast about the sheer breadth of experience and level of success that CEG’s faculty possess.
It is only fitting that we get to celebrate a milestone in the life of our Lisa who has created so many milestones for others including CEG. In a couple weeks CEG will be moving to its new location effectively doubling in size and scope.
So today, our thanks to Lisa with Birthday hopes, wishes and prayers that she finds the joy and prosperity she has given to all of us, the family of CEG students and staff.
In June CEG will open its doors to a new chapter of expansion and empowering even more Nevadans to find success in Casino Gaming Careers.
We recently inked a 5 year lease on a new retail space that will nearly double the square feet available for our “Casino” training floor.
Some highlights will include;
A new Dice training area will feature 2 full dice tables in addition to our famous “probie” starter table and a portable pop-up dice game. Details of our Advanced Dice courses are coming soon.
We are also adding a 2nd Baccarat table. Come July CEG will be offering the first Midi-Baccarat 202 course taught by our very own Momma Kim (a current High Limit Salon Dealer at Caesars Palace for 28 years). If you are an experienced dealer or graduate of CEG Mini-bacc you will now have the opportunity to learn the skills needed for high limit salon Baccarat. We also have a 2nd instructor who is a current High Limit Cosmopolitan Dealer (with 32 years of exp) – if you weren’t already impressed.
Our expansion will include adding 11 more Blackjack and Carnival games and the addition of left and right handed Roulette wheels set up back to back ala most strip casinos.
Stay tuned for more announcements as we get closer to moving.
Ps. If your wondering, its on the Southwest Corner of Sahara and Decatur. More food options. More parking. More aesthetics.
Become a Casino Dealer – The Story of Vy (pronounced V-e-e)
Can you imagine coming to Las Vegas from another country thousands of miles away? You know just a few words of english, have no friends and no car. Where do you even begin? This is the story of Vy, A CEG multi-game Casino Dealer graduate.
In March 2017 Vy immigrated to the United States from Vietnam. Before long (as with many before her) she saw an opportunity to become a Casino Dealer and found her way to CEG through a referral.
In August 2017 Vy signed up to learn 3 Casino Table games, Blackjack, Roulette and Mini-Baccarat.
In December of 2017 Vy graduated from CEG as a certified multi-game dealer and was placed by CEG at the Fiesta Rancho Hotel and Casino.
In January of 2018, Vy returned to CEG and signed up to learn Craps (or Dice), becoming certified just a few months later.
A few weeks ago, CEG was contacted by the SLS who needed qualified multi-game dealers with Dice/Craps. Vy was scheduled for an audition and passed. She has now become a Casino Dealer at the SLS Casino and Resort.
Congratulations To Vy. The faculty, students and our entire CEG family celebrates Vy’s hard work, persistence and faith in herself.
Here is a picture taken today (May 10th 2018) of Vy with her newly purchased car. Today is a good day!
