In preparation for the arrival of blackjack and poker at two casinos in Maine, Eastern Maine Community College is planning to add a course to train table game dealers. They are currently awaiting approval from Maine’s Gambling Control Board which will meet next week.

The two casinos, Hollywood Slots casino in Bangor and another casino which is currently under construction in Oxford will be offering table games in the Spring.

Hollywood will be adding 14 table games, including blackjack, poker, craps and roulette. Once it opens, the casino in Oxford will also have slot machines in addition to the table games.

The dealer course is part of a new hospitality program at Eastern Maine Community College, which will also train students in other aspects of the industry.
