Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway is honoring about 60 students for completing the first course in Maine teaching people how to deal table games and poker. The course began in January and was held in conjunction with Eastern Maine Community College’s Hospitality Institute. The 8-week course ran five days a week, and gave students the opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge of table games that could be used for job opportunities at Hollywood Casino, or other gaming facilities around the world.
“These students have put in a lot of effort to get to this point,” said John Osborne, General Manager of Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway. “They have put in long days, and are now prepared to deal all of the games that we offer at Hollywood Casino, and they are also prepared to enhance the entertainment experience of our customers.
