Times remain the same 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. but the 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. sessions are now devoted exclusively to craps. As explained by instructor Darline Schrader, it takes as long as one-half hour to explain the possible bets. When craps, roulette and "21" were taught in the same hour, there was no chance for students to play the game of craps. Now they actually play the game (not for money) and observe the bets in action. At the other two daily sessions, "21," roulette and mini-baccarat are explained. The students have a chance to play a few games and become more comfortable with the rules, jargon and etiquette of the games before they attempt live gaming in a casino. All instruction is free at the school. The classes are held on the second floor of the shopping arcade called The Court of a Thousand Treasures. The elevator to the school is located beside the casino's poker room. on C z c CATCH OUR SMILE Package includes round-trip air fare and deluxe room accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights (double occupancy), plus free green fees on our championship golf course and TWO FREE TENNIS LESSONS on our newly resurfaced tennis courts.
