Winner’s Circle Casino Gaming Club

This is what I had envisioned: Members who joined this club would meet once per month and I’d be able to teach them the basics of how to play craps, roulette, baccarat, and how to play blackjack on gaming tables that I would bring to the meetings. After much thought on this concept, my wife and I (along with another couple, who were partners in this venture) launched the unique Winner’s Circle Casino Gaming Club.

A Unique Blackjack School

I was living in New Jersey in the late 1970s, when casino gambling became legalized in Atlantic City. The casinos that began opening there were clamoring for casino dealers. Soon, casino gambling schools began opening that taught students the skills necessary to become a casino dealer. (You had to be certified by a state-licensed dealer’s school in order to be a casino dealer.) The public was inundated with news, TV, and radio reports and advertisement about becoming a casino dealer.
