Aces "College Of Casino Game Knowledge:" Ten Not-So-Tough Mid-Term Questions About Roulette

Aces Casino has always taken pride in being the number one Orange County casino party company, a fact we don't take for granted.  Besides putting on fabulous casino parties in the Southern California area for over 17 years, Aces Casino Entertainment has also taken on the task of training would-be casino gaming enthusiasts in the area of what we call, "The How-To's" of the games themselves.  Hey, when you're playing with fake chips, you better have a fall-back option.

Yes, It's true - We LOVE teaching players these casino games we love so much.  It's so much easier giving classes on just how the games work when you can give your students "Hands-On Experience" at casino-quality tables with phony, valueless chips.  They get the real "feel" of the game's play and speed, without feeling the "pinch" of losing their hard-earned cash.  "Win-Win."

However - Once we started the Aces Casino Blog, we discovered one interesting factoid:  Our faithful Blog-readers normally can't attend our Orange County casino party happenings here in SoCal.   Solution?  Why, It's the Aces Casino Blog's own "Mid-Term College of Casino Game Knowledge,"  of course!  Last year we published our blog's Mid-Term on Blackjack in true/false form (the link can be found here), and THIS year, It's Roulette's turn.

OK, here's the only hint we'll give you.

OK, students.  Sharpen those #2 pencils, and open the Roulette test booklet.  Inside, you'll find ten questions concerning the fun, yet frustrating game of Roulette.  Each question will have three possible answers - Mark your paper from 1-to-10, and answer each question with an "A," a "B," or "C."  We'll give the quiz today, and the answers next Friday, one week from today, in this same Aces Casino Orange County casino party blog.  Ready?  Begin.
