Beginning March 4, Live! Casino Pittsburgh is hosting free table games schooling for anyone looking for a career change.

The casino industry, both retail and PA online casinos, is in need of passionate dealers to be able to successfully facilitate popular table games such as poker, blackjack and Mississippi Stud.

January table games school deemed a success at Live! Casino Pittsburgh

Live! Casino Pittsburgh offered table games schooling in January. The classes appeared to be a hit, as the property is bringing them back next week.

In a press release emailed to PlayPennsylvania, Live! Casino Pittsburgh said that classes are “back by popular demand.”

Just like in January, the school will run for six weeks and is held Monday through Friday, from either noon to 4 p.m., or 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Students of the course are able to apply to table games positions at the casino once classes are completed. Live! Casino Pittsburgh General Manager, Sean Sullivan, said in the press release:

“Our initial class in January proved so popular that we decided to host another one right away. We love helping people who are interested in an exciting new career in the gaming industry.”

Live! Pittsburgh generates second-most table games revenue among mini-casinos

Live! Casino Pittsburgh is a mini-casino, so it won’t compete with the likes of Wind Creek Bethlehem or Parx Casino Bensalem in table games revenue. Those properties produced $241.3 million and $202 million, respectively, in revenue last year.

However, among mini-casinos, Live! Casino Pittsburgh is right at the top. There are four mini-casinos in the Keystone State, and Live! Pittsburgh ranked just behind Hollywood Casino York in table games earnings. Yearly revenue is as follows:

  • Hollywood Casino York: $16.6 million
  • Live! Casino Pittsburgh: $16.3 million
  • Hollywood Casino Morgantown: $9.6 million
  • Parx Casino Shippensburg: $1.1 million

Live! Casino Pittsburgh even finished ahead of Category 1 casino, Presque Isle Downs, which recorded $12.6 million in table games revenue last year.

Live! Pittsburgh isn’t far off from capturing the top spot among PA mini-casinos. While table game dealers might not get the fanfare they deserve, they are instrumental in the revenue that comes through the establishment.
