Las Vegas dealer schools see ‘fast and furious’ recovery Bailey Schulz, Las Vegas Review-Journal · April 8, 2021 at 4:18 pm There’s a wall at the Crescent School of Gaming and Bartending covered with success stories. The collage of portraits shows dozens of former students, each a smiling face below the name of a casino where they found work as a dealer. Owner Ricky Richard says enrollment rates at the school are nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, despite Las Vegas still facing headwinds under the pandemic. Even more surprising: Nearly every graduating student has been able to find work immediately. It’s a trend seen at dealer schools across the valley. “Right now, almost anybody who wants to work, we can get them to work,” Richard said.
