Bally’s to Launch Training School for Chicago Casino

Bally’s Chicago Casino, in partnership with the City Colleges of Chicago, will offer local residents specialized job training to become a casino table games dealer. To build towards the hundreds of table games dealers that will be hired prior to opening, Bally’s Chicago is launching a Dealer Training School this spring to teach candidates the skills needed to begin a successful gaming career. 
“Our Dealer Training School is an exciting opportunity for Chicagoans to receive real workforce training for a new profession and become a member of one of the best gaming companies in the world,” said Ameet Patel, SVP and regional general manager of Bally’s Corporation.  

Bally’s Chicago management team is working in partnership with local workforce development agencies and the CCC to attract Chicagoans to the upcoming Dealer Training classes. Qualified graduates will be offered the opportunity to join Bally’s Chicago table games team.
