The Aces Casino Blog: 2014 Was a Blur, and 2015 Must Mean That It's Time To Plan For The Aces Casino Entertainment Holiday Party (In January!)


Boy, it is SO good to be back.  If there is one thing that everyone here at Aces Casino (A.K.A. the top orange county casino party company on the West Coast) can testify to, it is simply this -- There is nothing more important to oneself their their health.  So, to sum it all up, your Aces Casino Blog reporter is back and in good health, and not in that order.  Let's get back to work, shall we?

OK, first off -- As Aces Casino Entertainment moves on in it's 21st year of operation, the team reports that the December holiday season was a smash.  We had four brand new clients join us for a scintillating holiday event extravaganza in this 2014 season.  So, to all of our clients, we thank you so much for trusting Aces Casino with your holiday endeavors, and thank you for referring us to your friends, neighbors and compatriots.  We're glad you loved us.  (Ed. Note: And, we LOVE you!)

Blog-Story #1... OK, show of hands.... How many of you out there in Aces Casino Land are aware that our consecutive win streak of winning Super Bowl picks now currently site at (ahem) TWENTY STRAIGHT?  Yep, no lie.  20 in a row, and done with what we might classify as an unorthodox way of making our "picks" each and every year.  Here's the link to our Jan. 30, 2014 blog post that chronicled the latest perfect pick.  We're about a month away from having our Super Bowl 49 pick made... We'll keep you posted, check the blog in late January for pick #21.

Hint: Here's who picked Seattle last year.

Blog-Story #2 ... Hey, here's some new Aces Casino news!  We're bringing back our Aces Casino Blog "Blast From The Past" series of blog posts starting on New Years' Day, January 1st!  Our followers (all 7 of them) have always loved reading about the trials and tribulations regarding our team of "frustrated game show contestants" that we call our staff, and the crazy ideas that they come up with in concert with our goofy blog.  Check it out on Jan-One, It'll go all the way through the month, culminating in our attempt to go 21-0 in picking the Super Bowl winner....

Blog-Story "The Last" .... As is tradition here at Aces Casino Entertainment, January means it's time to begin planning the Annual "Aces Casino Holiday Party in January.  (Ed. Note: We can't hold our Christmas party in December like everyone else for obvious reasons, like WE'RE WORKING ALL MONTH!)  In 2015, we're doing our usual "2 for 1" thing again this year.  We'll start off at K-1 Speed for the bi-annual "Aces Casino 500" go-kart time trials and race, and that will be immediately followed up by our 2015 Aces Casino Poker Tournament.  All you dealers and staff members that are interested in qualifying for the race and/or entering the tournament, please CALL us!  We're taking sign-ups right now.  (Ed. Note: You MUST have worked for Aces Casino at some point in 2014 to be eligible for the festivities.  Call now.)

Well, so much for this scintillating blog entry.  We hope that all of our crazy team members of the Aces Casino orange county casino night crew are having a wonderful and joyous holiday, and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2015.  We'll be back on Monday with our latest attempt at a Pulitzer... Until then, have a great weekend, and we'll see you later!

Aces Casino Blog: "Hello, Hello, Is This Thing On?" Good Thing, Because There's No Time To Spare When It Comes To Booking Your Holiday Event!


The Aces Casino Blog has always been the perfect "propaganda minister" when it comes to getting the word out as to just how terrific this orange county casino party company can be, when it comes to putting on these wonderful casino events.

That having been said, it's still not too late to get on our event calendar for some of the dates that are still not wearing that ugly "SOLD OUT" sign.  Call us here at Aces Casino Entertainment today, and ask us about helping out Ol' Saint Nick at YOUR next holiday casino party!   We would be happy to assist you in any way, in order to make that Christmas event SHINE!

Oh, and here's a lil' tidbit from our Aces Casino Blog "Useless Facts File:"  Next week, we'll make sure that this orange county casino night party company's "Blog Team" will be back online and in service, doing what we do best here on the Blog --  Linking up the casino industry with things that happen in what we loosely call "everyday life."  We'll be back on Monday with our twice-weekly blabber.  See you then!

The Aces Casino Blog: Eighteen Days In "Sick Bay," And I Can't Find My Desk Under All These Papers


Wow... OK, all we can say is, that "Flu" is a KILLER.  I wouldn't wish it on anyone.  To be honest, this is yours truly's first day back, and I'm actually still not 100%, but how tough can it be to type some blather from the top orange county casino party company on the west coast?

Actually, it IS tough.  Aces Casino deserves better than this scatter-brained sickie, so we're going to jot down a few thoughts, and then, I'm going home.  Shouldn't be here.  OK, some random posts for the ol' orange county casino night company that paid me, even when I wasn't here (told ya this place rocks!)....

 ---- The Chargers are 2-and-1, the Buena Park Coyotes are 4-0, and the Angels locked up home field for the playoffs.  I missed going to all of these games (especially the Coyotes' games), but maybe they're all better off if I didn't jinx 'em.  Life is good...

---- Thank goodness the NFL's playing games again and keeping the commish away from the podium, answering questions about the state of the league's policies on spousal abuse.  (Ed. Note: Gotta let the laws of the land take the first shots against the bad guys...)

---- The December calendar here at Aces Casino looks like the "Big Board" from Wall Street.  If you're thinking of getting Aces Casino to do your holiday event, you'd best speed up your process....

That's all for now.  Boss says come back Monday, and give a full blog article.

OK.  Can do. 

Have a good weekend, and we'll see you (hopefully) next week!

The Aces Casino Blog: Well, This Is What Happens When Your Office Computer Turns Into The Office's Largest Paperweight (And/Or a GREAT Door Stop)


Sigh.....

OK, we admit it.  We blew it. 

OK, I admit it.  I blew it.

I torched the Aces Casino computer system.  It's not necessary to into details (Ed. Note: He spilled coffee on it.), but what's done is done, and we're finally back on-line with our irreverent blog.  We've truly missed blabbing about how great our orange county casino night party company is and has been for some 20 years now, and it feels good to actually be back on the ol' 'net.

Basically, this blog submission is just a test to make sure that we're back up and running, so check in with us tomorrow (our normal blog submission date, Thursday), and we'll have something scintillating for the masses to partake of.  Or, it'll be dumb and boring, like normal.  One way or the other, the blog is BACK, and we'll be touching base on some of our fave orange county casino party company topics in less than 24 hours. 

Take care, wish me luck that I stop being clumsy, and we'll see you on Thursday!

The Aces Casino Blog: The First Of August Means Just One Thing Around Here -- Time For Another Aces Casino "Blog-A-Thon." (Gee, That's GREAT.)

 
August.  The month that means the vacation is over.  Back to work.

Ahhh, but It's SO good to actually be back here and situated at the Blogger desk of Aces Casino, the Orange County casino night party leader.  When you've been dubbed the official "propaganda minister" of the company, you MUST be in the right place.

And believe me -- During the month of August, there's no place we'd rather be.  Why, you ask?  Simple.  For you see, August is the one month out of the year where we publish one blog entry EVERY DAY.  (Ed. Note: The best idea I've had in the company's history.  Now get to work and make it happen, Blog-Boy.)

Translation: Someone opened their big mouth around these offices and said that we could do 31 straight days of blog articles, and BOOM - It's now the "Law of Aces Casino."  Consider this year #2 of the chase for the most useless info in the month of August.

Hey, we're the top orange county casino party on the west coast.  Ain't nothin' we can't do.  ESPECIALLY when it comes to goofy, useless blog posts.

And, as the official liaison to the Aces Casino Entertainment "Department of Useless Information," we thought that it might be time to remind our throng of some 14 subscribers of some seemingly little-known facts when it comes to the art of casino gaming.

OK, actually, the boss suggested the topic for today's entry.  Everybody's a Blog critic.  But, it IS a pretty good idea, and yours truly has never shied away from stealing someone else's good idea, so, let's do it.  Courtesy of the Orange County casino party leaders, here is Aces Casino's "Top 3 Things We've Known For a LONG time, That Others Never Seem to Figure Out."

#3 -- The "Odds" bet is the best bet on the Craps Table

I thought THIS one was a gimme, but, apparently not, if you go by the countless numbers of players that consistently skip the chance to place this bet behind their original "pass line" bet.  In 2010, the Aces Casino Blog touched on how to begin playing the game of Craps in this link, and followed up with Part Two of the series with THIS link, but didn't mention the "Odds Bet."  That's coming in Part 3 of the Craps saga, coming soon to a Blog near you.

We're ALWAYS teaching players to place the "Odds Bet," a bet that has no actual decal on the Craps layout to show it's there, but take our word for it - It's there.  Placing your Odds Bet right behind your Pass Line bet on the layout is the right place to put it.



It ends up looking like two bets, one right behind the other, and it's the best bet on the Craps table, by FAR.  Why?  Well, I'll tell you; It's the only bet on the entire table that the house has NO MATHEMATICAL ADVANTAGE over the player. 

Here's an example.  On a "point" of six, the odds against a player shooting a six before a seven on the dice are 6-to-5.  But, should you SHOOT a six before a seven, the dealers will pay off any "odds bet" at what is called "true dice odds."  Therefore, any winning odds bet is paid at "true dice odds," or $6 for every $5 wagered.  

The odds against the six or eight coming up on the dice are 6/5 against; against the five and nine?  3/2.  Against the four and ten?  2/1.   ANY time you get a chance to place an odds bet, TAKE IT.  The house has no advantage.  That's a good thing.  

Say that you placed a $5 pass line bet, and the point came up four.  Then, you placed a $10 "odds bet" behind your pass line bet.  (That's called taking 'double odds,' or placing twice your original bet on the table for the odds bet.)  Should a four come up before a seven, you'd win $5 for the pass line bet, PLUS $20 for the ODDS bet (2/1 odds against the four).

I know, it sounds complicated.  You'll get it after about 30 minutes of play on a Craps table.  ome to an Aces Casino party.  We'll teach you.  We're not the Orange County casino party leaders for nuthin'.  Plus, when your company motto is "this beats working," well, you LOVE putting on casino parties.  Trust me.  (grin)  Bottom line: TAKE the ODDS BET.  We promise, it's the best bet at the table.  We're changing America's mind on this, one player at a time.

#2 -- ALWAYS split Aces at the Blackjack table

We just saw this at a table at last weekend's Rancho Niguel Little League gala over at the Aliso Viejo Golf Course.  I must have seen players avoiding the splitting of two aces time and time again.  Here is a great Blackjack trainer when it comes to practicing your skill at "21," but the linked web site from our friends over at the Wizard of Odds ALSO has GREAT techniques at teaching the strategy behind the games.   
Bottom line: Take advantage of this GREAT web site, and take advantage of the ability to split Aces at the table when you play Blackjack for keeps.  Check out the "Wiz." Look it up, splitting Aces is the play.

#1 -- Soldiers, tanks and planes have NEVER had ANY effect against Godzilla

Yeah, I know, this doesn't have much to do with casino gaming, but as far as I'M concerned, this is THE number one thing that we've known for a while now, that the Japanese army seems to constantly ignore, time after time.

The Toho Film Company has made some 28 Godzilla films since 1954... We were watching one called "Godzilla, Tokyo S.O.S," which came out some 5 years ago.  (Ed. Note: the film came out in 2003.)  We watched this film after one of the Aces Casino events last week, a film that is something like #26 in the series.  (And YOU thought "Rocky" made too many movies.) 

Yep, it's the tried and true format; Godzilla comes poppin' out of the Sea Of Japan, and who's on shore waiting for him?  That's right; It's none other than the Japanese army, armed with all kinds of guns, tanks, fighter jets, and even some magic-wand-looking laser-thingy's that shoot lightning bolts at out favorite 20-story buddy.


Does THIS guy look like planes, guns and tanks bother him?

Yep.  I kid you not.  The Japanese army is out on the front lines, AGAIN.  Twenty-Five times, they've come face-to-face with Godzilla, and twenty-five times, Godzilla has mopped the floor with them.  It's like the Harlem Globetrotters against the Washington Generals, only the Globetrotters shoot three-pointers at their opponent, instead of a nuclear blast that incinerates whatever it touches.
After 25 consecutive butt-kickings, you'd think that SOMEBODY in the Japanese Government would figure out by now that those soldiers and their lil' toys ain't gettin' the job done against Godzilla.

Heck, in ONE movie, I saw the Japanese built a Godzilla-like robot, to pull a WWE - type thing on Godzilla.  Didn't work, he just ripped the robot's head off, and rolled it down the alley for a strike. 
Bottom line: Take it from Aces Casino, the Los Angeles County casino party leader.  After 28 movies, you guys have to get the hint.  No more tanks, guns, and planes.  THey don't work, trust me.  Hey - We've got some "Raid Pest-Be-Gone" somewhere in the back offices that looks like it kills ANYTHING we spray it on.  We'll come out and spray him, if you want us to.  That oughta do the trick.
And, if it doesn't?  Someone go find that flying turtle with the flames coming out of his feetie-holes that I saw in a movie last year.  He's probably not doing anything, and he'll probably let you pay him in lettuce.

That's all.  August issue #1 is done.  Back tomorrow, with another scintillatingly irrelevant post.  Hasta manana!

Aces Casino Blog: Famous Last Words - "It Can Go Right Across The Lawn If You FLY It Right!" (Sure.)


If you know ANYTHING about Aces Casino Entertainment (those crazy guys and gals from the top orange county casino party company on the west coast), you KNOW that we LOVE goofy YouTube videos.  And, ofcourse, when we GET one worthy of our parakeet paper-blog, well, we just HAVE to share.  (Ed. Note: Videos, they share.  Candy?  That's another story.)

So, courtesy of our time-wasting buddies over at YouTube, here's another submission from the Aces Casino "don't let this happen to you" division of our award-winning orange county casino night party company.  We aptly call this, "It Can Go Right Across The Lawn If You FLY It Right!"

You are cleared for takeoff.  The Landing?  Errr....Not so much.

Call this one an early Monday blog-present for the masses from Aces Casino (all 3 of you).  We'll be back tomorrow with another goofy video, you can count on it.  Take care, have a good rest of the weekend, and we'll see you on Monday!

The Aces Casino Blog: If It's Mid-July, It MUST Be Time Again For Our Monthly "YouTube Epic Videos Of The Week!" (Believe Me, They're Truly EPIC!)


No doubt about it -- July is one of Aces Casino's FAVORITE months of the year (Ed. Note: That's probably because everyone on staff gets a vacation...) when it comes to the Aces Blog Team.  Hey - When you're the top orange county casino party company on the west coast, you LOVE spreading the word thru our almost-award-winning parakeet paper.  (Ed. Note: THAT'S what you get PAID for.  Now, get back to work and print our propaganda...)

And, when it comes to our blog, well, as they say in the break room, "always go with the YouTube vids."  Good advice, as always.  So, without further adieu, here are our favorite YouTube "Close Call Compilation" videos for the month of July.  Enjoy!

People thanking their lucky stars abound...

That's all for our "Lazy Monday Edition" of the Aces Casino Blog.  Thursday, things heat up a little when the top orange county casino night crew goes back to the Aces Casino "College of Casino Game Knowledge," and check back in to the "Wizard of Odds."  It's always worth the price of admission - We'll see you on Thursday!

Aces Casino "College Of Casino Game Knowledge:" Anybody Interested In Trying Out a Game They've Never Heard Of? Well, There's Always "Wild 52!"


Any time a new casino game hits the streets of Las Vegas, the ever-curious crew over at Aces Casino Entertainment gets pretty excited.  Hey - It's not every day that the top orange county casino night party company on the west coast gets to take a shot at "trying out something new."

Well, semi-new, anyway.

About three years ago, the Flamingo Hotel and Casino debuted a game called, "Wild 52."  Well, the brass here at Aces Casino loved it, but it appears that not too many people have still had the chance to witness the game in all it's glory.   Hey, we can fix that with a "stroke of the pen," so to speak.  So, anyone interested in finding out more info on Wild 52 can check out this lil' YouTube ditty created by super-blogger Scott Roeben over at Vital Vegas.

"Wild 52."

Our staff has an event this weekend in Whittier, so we've decided to offer "Wild 52" for a moment or two for some soon-to-be-intrigued guests.  We'll let you know how the game is received.  Looks pretty fun to us...

That's all from the desk of The Aces Casino Blog.  Back on Monday with more "informative fodder"  (Ed. Note: 'Fodder' is not a word.) from our award-winning orange county casino party company.  Have a good weekend, we'll see you back here on Monday!

The Aces Casino Blog: Day 127 of SkyVue "Web Cam Gate" - They Haven't Thrown In The Towel Yet (But They Should Be Warming Up In The Bullpen)


OK, show of hands... Who out there remembers "SkyVue?"  No, no, all of you team members of Aces Casino (the top orange county casino party company on the west coast) can put your hands down; You're not eligible for the "SkyVue Web-Cam Ghoul-Pool" prize.

For those of you that are not indoctrinated into our little Las Vegas "Obsession," feel free to check out some of the old blog posts re: the High Roller vs. the World's Largest Slingshot located in our slightly irrelevant blog.... (Ed. Note: There are a ton of links to our inane coverage of this "space race" in the Aces Blog archives...)

Today, we lost two of our co-favorites in the SkyVue pool, as the ol' webcam that came online to marvel about the "slingshot" some two years ago is now still up and chronicling the constant lack of effort in re-starting construction.

Ahh, the good old days... When the scaffolding was still up.

There are still 173 entrants that are still in the "when will the webcam quit" pool, with three more up for elimination this week.  Things will start getting much tighter in October, when a lot of the remaining players will come up to bat.  (Ed. Note: We've considered guarding the cam in Vegas in three months.  Hey, if we're considering doing and event in Minnesota, we're obviously up for anything.)

So... For those of you that wish to play along, we'll drop the link to the SkyVue webcam HERE (Ed. Note: Entries for the trip to Vegas ARE closed, but sure, you can play along.)

Hey - We're leaving!  That's all from the top orange county casino night party crew on the west coast.... We're back on Thursday with another edition of the Aces Casino College of Casino Game Knowledge.  We'll see you on Thursday!

THe Aces Casino Blog: The "Fireworks" Start Early for the 2014 Buena Park Coyotes Football Program


Anyone that knows Aces Casino Entertainment (A.K.A. the top orange county casino night party company on the west coast) knows that we have three passions around here -- Family, Casino parties, and football.   Today, we talk about the latter, for one small moment. 

Our favorite High School Football program, the 2014 Buena Park Coyotes, are right in the middle of their July 4th fireworks celebration.  They've put up a fireworks stand on the corner of Beach Blvd. and Malvern (Next to the Chevron station), and are open for business from now thru the 4th of July. 
 
"Ow-Ow-Owwwww~"

The stand is open from 10am to 10pm both today (Thursday) and tomorrow (The 4th of July), so hurry up and get over there and be a part of the action.   Besides a vast array of fireworks for sale, I'm sure that the Coyote Club (our booster club) will be selling BP Coyotes football program hats, shirts, sweat shirts, you name it.  You'll also have the rare chance to mingle with the families, coaches and players that make up the 2014 team, something that can be tough when the games are being played.  (Ed. Note: True, we never bother Varsity Football Coach Anthony White during the games.  He's got enough to be concerned about, besides my three cents worth...)

That's all for now......Short blog post today... We'll be back on Monday doing what this orange county casino party company does best -- Blather on about our industry.  We'll see you over at the fireworks stand!  Bring a chair, you'll want to hang around!

THe Aces Casino Blog Turns Four Years Old This Week, Mainly Because Of "Blast From The Past" Blog Entries Like This (Happy Birthday, TACB!)


(Ed. Note: Blow out the candles, you blog staffers out there, because the Aces Casino Blog has just turned four years old.   We know that we tend to blow our own casino party company horn around here, but It's for a good reason -- Simply that Aces Casino Entertainment CARES about not just OUR clients, but ALL casino party company clients. Here's just one of the very first blog entries that appeared almost four years ago that showed the commitment to excellence that this company takes pride in each and every day.  It's also one of the most searched blog posts in our industry, and for good reason.  Happy B-Day, "The Aces Casino Blog," now get back to work.)

Here at Aces Casino, the orange county casino night equipment rental leader, we take pride in giving each and every client of ours the most entertaining, unique, and imaginative casino night parties possible. It's just what we do. And, we do it VERY well. 17 years in the business means quite a lot of practice.

As a matter of fact, Aces ALSO does something that no other casino party company in the industry would EVER do: We also will go the extra mile to help out someone in dire straits that ISN'T a client of Aces Casino; some poor party coordinator or fund raising group that has found out too late that rock-bottom pricing and promises that are too good to be true usually are, and all their hard work to put on their party for their guests is going to be ruined by an unscrupulous casino "business."

There's nothing we hate more than hearing that an event has been ruined this way.

So, we were sitting around the offices the other day, when one such telephone call came in; someone that had called us originally, then found a "company" on the internet that beat our price by $25, and booked with them sight unseen, because of the "savings." Alas, you DO end up getting what you pay for. The company they ended up hiring didn't show up for their fund raiser, because (we found out later) they got another party from another client that PAID THEM more, and they ditched their first client so they could make more money for themselves.

Boy, we've grown SO incredibly tired of hearing results like this.

So, we thought, if we really ARE the orange county casino night industry leader, we need to do something about this. Hence, the meat of our blog post today. It seems that we we keep hearing the same three complaints from highly unsatisfied people and groups, people that were unhappy with the service from their "cut-rate" casino companies. So, it would seem totally logical to take these same three recurring complaints, and broadcast them to the casino party throwing community.

So, without further fanfare, here are three biggest complaints that event planners and fund raising chairs have, after they decided that saving an extra $25 was more important than going with Aces Casino, the orange county casino night industry leader for Southern California;

#3 -- The casino company's "Management, Pit Boss and Staff" don't have any clue about how to help their client

-- Usually, this particular situation DOES begin to show itself early on in the beginning itinerary meetings you'll have with your casino party company -- They don't have ANY suggestions on how to maximize profits at the fundraiser, how the fund raiser even WORKS, how much equipment that the client should have at their event to make sure that there isn't too much or too little casino power, what the chips are worth, how much chip power to start each guest with....Sometimes, we've found that the client knew more about the overall operations of the casino event than the CASINO COMPANY did.

If THIS is your casino company's staff, make a run for it.

Red Flag. Reputable casino party companies WELCOME all of your questions, and are FULL of great ideas and scenarios to help YOUR next party or fund raiser become an instant hit. Don't go with the cheapest company to save a buck, then end up losing money or killing the ambience of your event because you got a casino company that doesn't know what they're doing.

#2 -- The equipment that the casino company brought to the event was substandard, and not up to the quality promised by the casino company

-- This is a BIG one, but it's not even the number one problem with some disreputable casino companies. We can't say this enough: NOT ALL CASINO EQUIPMENT IS THE SAME. CHECK OUT what your casino party company plans to bring to your event. Ask for references, and USE them.

I wish I had $5 for every time that I heard a client tell us that their LAST casino company literally brought TOYS to their party, and pawned them off as "Casino tables." There are some companies out there that will literally show up with plywood sheets, and wrap cheap Blackjack layouts around them that are half the size of the size of normal BJ tables, fasten the layout on with tape, and put them on spindly cheap legs that wobble like hula dancers when touched.

Other companies will promise a Craps table at your event, then show up with a plywood box, a "tub," if you will, that's a miniature table at BEST, THEN tell you that you only purchased the "discounted model," and that the REAL casino size and quality Craps tables cost more. By THEN, it's too late; your party is about to start. You're stuck. Ask for pictures, or better yet, visit the casino company at an event that they're hosting for another client. If they refuse to give you this kind of info, RUN AWAY, as fast as you can.

But, the most blatant equipment problems that we've heard about seem to center around the Roulette tables. Two words. "TOYS ABOUND." You'll know that you got the wrong casino party company when they show up at your next event with a 12" plastic toy wheel, and call it a "Roulette Wheel." Friends, here's the straight dope -- Casino size and quality Roulette Wheels are 32 inches in diameter (from one end across to the other).

THIS is what the Roulette table should look like.

There's NOTHING worse than trying to play Roulette on a cheap, toy wheel. If they send you pictures of toy Roulette wheels upon request, find another company. Take it from Aces Casino; NEVER settle for toy tables at your casino event, especially toy Roulette tables. You want to see what the real things look like, go to www.acescasinoentertainment.com.

#1 -- The casino party game dealers are morons, and don't know a thing about the game they're dealing

Yes, as hard to believe as this sounds, there are disreputable casino companies that will just bring "bodies" to your event, and try to bluff their way through the games they've been assigned to. Sometimes, this happens because the casino company is just too busy for their own good, and have spread themselves too thin. Sometimes, they're just small companies that don't even ASK their staff if they can actually DEAL.

We've even heard of dealers that are brought to events, especially in Southern California, and they DON'T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH. I'm not kidding. There's a company out here in SoCal that will stop off over at the local Home Depot on their way to their party, pick up the necessary people to fill their party, and off they go. Can you imagine not being able to even CONVERSE with your dealer during your party?

Other problems abound with sub-standard dealers, too. They don't know the game they've been assigned to. They can't help you with your game -- They're too busy asking YOU about how the game is played. Oh, my word.... Unfortunately, this happens all the time. There's nothing worse than playing casino-style games for fun only, and finding out the fun itself has been lost, because the dealers are IDIOTS, and can't deal games like Blackjack, 3-Card Poker, 3 Way-Action, Tournament Texas Hold-'Em, Craps, Roulette, or Let It Ride. They've got a better chance of piloting the Space Shuttle, then creating a split-pot at the Hold-'Em table.

Aces Casino has always prided itself on having top-flight casino-quality dealers, tables, and staff at each and every casino event they perform at. We're not the only company that does -- That's why, again, it's important to CHECK THOSE REFERENCES. Go and SEE your casino party company in action, at another event, see how the fund raising event works for THEM. Call your prospective company, and ask questions. LOTS of them. Hey, if they're any good, they WELCOME the questions.

Bottom line -- Aces Casino is here to help all of our clients have fun, and raise funds for their favorite charities. We aren't the orange county casino night leader for nuthin'. Give us (or your local casino party company) a call, and find out everything you ever wanted to know about how much fun these casino events can be.

Oh, one more thing -- Check out the casino company's chips. If they're plastic chips, run away. It's one of my personal pet-peeves. Can't stand plastic chips. If I wanted plastic, I'd go to Hollywood.

Aces Casino Blog "Blast From The Not-So-Distant Past: Here Are 5 Semi-Historical Facts About Las Vegas That You May Not Have Known (Until Now)


(Ed. Note: While the Aces Blog team is off working on equipment renovation and new construction and design of brand new stuff, we'll give them a day off, and re-play one of our more popular Aces Casino Blog entries.  Don't worry, we'll do the Kardashians later, we promise...)

When you're known as the top orange county casino party company in SoCal, you had better know EVERYTHING about casino games.  Thankfully, the brass at Aces Casino DOES.  Now, possibly, their expertise in selecting authors to write their twice-weekly blog might be questioned, but, for now, I'll gladly accept the weekly $34.65 stipend for creating this published (?) train wreck, and cash the check, before someone gets wise.

Today's blog is a result of yours truly roaming the halls of Aces Casino, and asking the tough questions: #1, "do you know any really good trivia about the city of Las Vegas," and #2, "who stole my $16 pen?"  Well, I didn't get any nibbles on question #2, but as for the first query, yep, without question, there's no one group of casino party crazies that know more useless trivia than this team of orange county casino party nuts.  (I do have the greatest job in the world.)

So, without one more moment of hesitation (and before they can stop payment on the $34.65 check), here are the top 5 Aces Casino "gee whiz" facts about the city of Las Vegas.....

#1 -- Everyone knows (or thought they knew) that Ben Siegel's "Flamingo Hotel and Casino" was the first hotel / casino resort built in Vegas, in 1946.  Uhh, nope...Not true.  Actually, the very first hotel / casino in the city was built some five years earlier -- The El Rancho Vegas, a strip property, was built in 1941.  Goofy factoid:  This hotel burned to the ground 19 years later, in 1960.  Anyone that knew Siegel's whereabouts on that particular night is encouraged to call the LVPD cold-case division.



Flamingo Hotel, 1946. VERY cool. 

#2 -- When you officially leave California, and take the 15 freeway across the border into Nevada, there was a time that you used to refer to that area as "State Line, Nevada."  However, since 1996, that border area's name was officially changed to "Primm, Nevada," in honor of the area's founder, Ernest Primm.

 Ernest Primm. 

#3 -- There are some people that think that the MGM Grand Hotel at the corner of North Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue is NOT the largest hotel in the world...They're wrong.  It's still the boss of the planet, boasting a total of 5,005 rooms.  Word is they go thru about a million rolls of toilet paper a year there.  My wife must stay there when she's in town.  That woman can go thru GOBS of the stuff, believe me.

#4 -- Mormon settlers have always been given credit for discovering that vast plot of land know as Glitter Gulch, but actually, the Mormons, while receiving proper credit for setting up the first settlement in the city in 1855, were NOT the original group to discover  Las Vegas: Spanish explorers actually discovered Las Vegas some 26 years earlier, in 1829.   Guess they didn't want to stick around and wait for Siegel's hotel to open.  Can't blame 'em.

#5 -- It seems that a big part of Las Vegas' "history" is to seemingly erase it's past history:  every year or so, decisions are made to demolish one of the older hotels that made the city famous, in order to build something new, something"bigger and better." With that in mind, you'd best fasten our seat belt -- There are current discussions with one of the major hotel chains in the city (MGM Resorts) to actually knock down a hotel that is STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION.  I kid you not.  It's called the Harmon....Seems the darned thing might have a few defects in it's initial foundation construction.  Translation: It probably wouldn't  still be there if an earthquake hit the city.

Hey, at least the ticker works.  DOES look like It's leaning, though.

Uhh, yeah, that's gonna be a problem.  I'm not staying in a new hotel that has signs on the wall requesting that the patrons not sneeze hard.  Here's the link to this amazing story.  Hey, at least MGM can save money on the demolition of the thing.  Sounds like a loud party might be all that's needed to raze that thing.  Someone's losing their job over THIS one.  I can't believe someone forgot the rebar....

Well, that's all for now, my friends.  Any possible last-minute casino events that our clients might be planning should book now with ol' Aces Casino -- Our orange county casino party crew loves going out of town on off weekends, but they'll be glad to stick around, should the need arise.   Should anyone need info about or is interested in booking their next casino party, give Aces Casino a call today.  Maybe, by then, I'll find my $16 pen.

(Ed. Note: I doubt it.  I brought it home with me last week.  You're right, it IS nice.)

The Aces Casino Blog "World Cup Special:" The Impact That World-Class Soccer Players Have On The Youth Of Tomorrow (No More TV For The Kids)


Without question, we here at Aces Casino (A.K.A. the top orange county casino night party company on the west coast) has caught a BAD case of "2014 World Cup Fever."  Every four years, fans from around the world get a chance to watch the best players on the planet play some serious world-class football for their respective countries.

If you haven't tried the World Cup, give it a shot.  It's tremendous.  They say it's the game that the whole world plays.  (Even us.)

So - To celebrate this once-every-4-years occurrence, the staff here at Aces Casino Entertainment would like to pay tribute to the World Cup tourney being held in Brazil.  And, what better way is there for the top orange county casino party company on the west coast to pull this off then by posting our favorite videos from the guys at YouTube that shows the spirit of competition that these finely-tuned players have exhibited in the June games?

Cool!  We thought you'd agree.  Here's one vid that we found that truly shows the impact that these players have among the youth of America when it comes to fair play.   Here's one toddler that looks like he's ready for big-time soccer.  He's already got the "flop" mastered....

World-Class Soccer Player In The Making.

That's all for now... As usual, we'll be back on Thursday with more or the irrelevant non-sense that our orange county casino party company is known for.  (Ed. Note: For the uninitiated, the Aces Casino Blog posts every Monday and Thursday, with extra-special posts like this one that appear when the need arises.)  Take care!  

P.S. -- We couldn't resist throwin' a zinger at those players that play the game, get touched by a finger, and fall to the ground like they've been shot by a shotgun blast.  Love the World Cup, HATE the floppers.  Rant over, we'll see you in 48 hours....

The Aces Casino Blog: "It's All Fun And Games, Until Someone Gets Hurt" -- Here's The Other Side - Addiction And The Life Of The Compulsive Gambler


We think it may be time for "just one of those times."

We'd like to take the time to stray from our perch as the top entertainment tool in the casino night party industry for just a moment, and put aside our irreverent, goofy blog ideas for just one quick moment...We can ALWAYS be hokey, fun and goofy.

This isn't one of those times, however.

Make no mistake about it -- We love our position as the top orange county casino party company on the west coast, the company known as Aces Casino Entertainment.   We love bringing up one of our favorite sayings around here (Ed. Note: Besides the companies' motto of 'this beats working,' of course) -- "It's all fun and games at Aces Casino."  And, it quite frankly IS.  The chips are fake, the dealers are encouraged to cheat for the "players," and subsequently, a good time is had by all.  That's what Aces Casino is all about.

Unfortunately, we know full well just how much these "games of chance" that people love so much can quickly become an enemy of every man, woman and gambler that can't say "no" to the lure of what they feel is the ability to win that quick and easy buck.  There's no doubt about it -- Compulsive gambling is an addiction, just as strong or stronger than an addiction to smoking, to alcohol and hard drugs, and many other addictions that tear families apart and ruin lives.

Aces Casino Entertainment fully realizes this fact.  That's why we always tell our many clients up and down this west coast of ours that we make it look easy to beat these games when we cheat for the guests.  BUT... When the games are REAL, it's a whole new ball game.  We didn't get to be the top orange county casino night party company around by just playing games. We not only teach clients just how to play these games we love; we also teach them the systems of money management, patience and time management -- "To learn how and when to quit while you're ahead. 

Sometimes, hearing the sobering words from the people that have suffered the slings and arrows of compulsive gambling is the only way to get through to people that it CAN happen to anyone. So, we thought this might be a good time to stray away from our normal blog-foolishness, and tackle a task that can harm so many people from all ends of the spectrum.  We found this segment on the world of gambling addiction and the compulsive gambler a few days ago.  Check it out, courtesy of Aces Casino Entertainment -- Your orange county casino party company leader in the area of all things gaming.  We hope you like it, but what's more, we hope it tells a story that some people might need to hear.  It's pretty interesting we hear at Aces Casino hope you like it.


Addictions, and the compulsive gambler.

We'll be back on Thursday, with what we do best -- Looking at the lighter side of life, gaming, and all things in-between.  Take care, thanks for checking out the Aces Casino Blog, and we'll see you later!

The Aces Casino Blog: Los Angeles Kings Fans Take To The Streets To Celebrate Their Second Stanley Cup - Anaheim Ducks Fans Still Reeling From Loss


The Los Angeles Kings won their second Stanley Cup on Saturday, beating the New York Rangers in five games.  Here's how the fans celebrated in the streets of L.A. at the parade held in honor of the team's accomplishment...

Cup #2.  Life as a Kings fan is good.

Unfortunately, our friends down at Honda Center aren't handling the Kings' good fortune very well.  Headline: "Unhappy Anaheim Ducks fans leave Honda Center en masse after Kings win Game 7 in blowout!"  Here's exclusive footage, found only here at the Aces Casino Blog.

Ducks' fans taking the loss hard.

That's all for now...Back on Monday with more from the top orange county casino party company on the west coast (and home of some of the biggest L.A. Kings' fans around) -- Aces Casino Entertainment!

The Aces Casino Blog: We Would Be Remiss If We Didn't Post This Fascinating National Geographic Documentary on "Casino Wars." (Yes, War IS Hell.)


At Aces Casino Entertainment, we love ALL things "Las Vegas." (Ed. Note: Except maybe that "Flipping Vegas" show with Scott Yancey, but we've grown to love HIM, too.)  So, when we found out that a production group the like of National Geographic had recently done a very well-done piece on the current "Casino Wars" going on in corporate Las Vegas, well, we HAD to see it.

It's very good... Good enough for our orange county casino party company to instantly provide a link to the piece, and share it with our many (5?) viewers here on The Aces Casino Blog.  Here it is, courtesy of the top orange county casino night party company on the west coast - Aces Casino Entertainment.  Enjoy!


 "Casino Wars."

Hope you enjoyed this NatGeo look at the state of things in the casino world of Las Vegas.  Have a good weekend, and we'll see you back here next Monday with another parakeet paper-worthy piece of cyber-prose from The Aces Casino Blog!

The Aces Casino Blog: We Never Thought That The Word "The" Could Cause Such a Commotion In Cyberspace. (And, As Usual, We Were Dead Wrong.)


Aces Casino Entertainment just celebrated it's 20th year in the orange county casino party business last week, and we are so proud of our reputation in our chosen field, and our non-stop commitment to excellence that Aces Casino brings to each and every event that we've done over these last two decades.  It shows our pride and extensive knowledge that we bring to everything we do here.

Well, NEARLY everything we do here.

It seems that there's one area of expertise that has escaped us from time to time, an area that has nothing to do with the BUSINESS side of our multiple award-winning orange county casino night party company.   High-End, lavish, wonderful Las Vegas Night Events, we know.

It's Cyberspace, that we're still a little hazy on.

Sigh... It's official.  We're "dummies."  I still don't get it.

First off, there's good news here..... Early on, we scoured southern California for the best IT company in the business to handle our web marketing via the internet and social media. And, we found that company right away -- Rich Stark, of Stark Logic in Oceanside.  Now, we're not doing this Aces Casino Blog article to throw out commercials, but since we've mentioned Rich, we MUST say to anyone that's interested that he and his team IS, without question, the BEST Information Technology company that money can buy.

Rich is, and had always been fantastic.  But, OUR ability as being tech-savvy?  Ummm, not so good.

Now, Rich tried so very hard to teach us what to do with social media, with IT, and especially the value of Aces Casino Entertainment providing a twice-weekly blog like our parakeet paper, the Aces Casino Blog.  He has taught us everything we know. 

Which, unfortunately, still ain't much.

That brings us to present day, and something that happened about a month or so ago.  We were notified that our Aces Casino Blog domain name needed to be renewed, which turned out to be tougher than we thought.  We were met with countless obstacles in trying to get to the right place to actually pay the money and renew the blog domain, with no luck.  (Ed. Note: It had something to do with blogspot.com changing their system, but I couldn't figure it out, either.)  Rich did his best to tell us where to go and what to do, but we ended up in cyberspace Hades with links that kept telling us to click here, click there... It was an endless loop that got us nowhere.

Alas, the expiration date came and went.  Our dumb little Blog link failed to renew.


So... We figured that, with the domain expiring, we could just go onto the king of domain site sellers, "GoDaddy.com," and buy it there.  Surely, we'd be the only one interested in having the "Aces Casino Blog" name.  So, we went onto GoDaddy, and found out something interesting.....

Someone else got into the site before we did, and snapped up our domain name. 

I guess that, in the domain name biz, that some sites can appear to be worth some bucks, because of the traffic the sites get.  Now, when it comes to our blog, we thought the domain name would be worth about $.03, considering our "terrific" content.

Wrong again.... Unfortunately, we were the victim of two things -- 1) Our success in creating this goofy blog that has a lot of followers, and 2) Our lack of knowledge at finding and renewing the dopey domain name in the first place.

Well, sure enough, the new buyer of the domain name contacted us, and asked if we'd like to buy the domain name from him.  Now, you may think that we'd be ticked off, or saddened, or whatever.... Nope.  We were pleasantly surprised that this fine gentleman thought so highly of our domain name, that he'd sell it back to us for some five-figure amount. 

Unfortunately for him, he doesn't know our owners very well.  They immediately went back into GoDaddy, bought the domain name "The Aces Casino Blog.com," and told the profit-hunting gentleman that our blog wasn't WORTH $20K, and that we had already purchased the domain name we wanted in the first place.

Now, when we heard that the old domain site was worth that much to someone, we thought that it was time to "strike while the iron was hot."  We told the bosses that our Aces Casino Blog Crew had created this baby from scratch, and over these many years of toiling at the keyboard, had turned the Aces Casino Blog into a real moneymaker.  It was time for a raise, we thought.

Until these same bosses told us that it was OUR fault that we LOST the dumb domain name in the first place, and now, we had to pick up the pieces, actually LEARN a little bit about cyberspace, and consider ourselves lucky that we still HAD a job writing the Aces Blog.

Make that TWO things we weren't very good at -- Cyberspace, and Deal negotiating.  It's a good thing we know that orange county casino party business like no one else on the planet, or we'd be in trouble.  Craps table good, keyboard not-so-good....

Well, all's well that ends well.  "The Aces Casino Blog" is back up and running just like clockwork, the links all work fine, the traffic is back, and our new domain name is easy to interface with, and renew. 

That's all for now... We'll (hopefully) be back on Thursday with another edition of the "Blog."

The Aces Casino Blog: Looking For a New Challenge in Zip-Lining? Check Out The Newest Tourist Attraction to Hit Downtown Las Vegas -- "SlotZilla!"


When the staff at Aces Casino Entertainment (The top orange county casino party company on the west coast) was asked about what they had heard was new to the Las Vegas scene, we expected to get responses about new hotels, the latest in the crazy Vegas nightclub scene, or some new casino games they had heard of but not yet played. 

Wrong. 

It seems that most of the suggestions for the latest things that needed to be checked out the next time our team was heading to Las Vegas were touristy-type attractions.  Number one was "The High Roller," the world's newest (not to mention the tallest) Ferris wheel in the world, which currently resides in Caesars Entertainment's new hot spot, the Linq.

Number two was a slight surprise .... It seems that we've got some of our team that's intent on going to visit the "Zombie Apocalypse Store" in Las Vegas.  Now, we did a little piece on this place a year or so ago, but for those of you that may not have been aware that this store even exists, here's a little YouTube clip that chronicles the store and one of it's reps....

Biggest fears?  Zombies, floods, and "the government?"  OK, that says it all.

With the Zombie Apocalypse Store now in out rear-view mirror (thank goodness), we can now move on to our third and last suggestion for things to do and places to go to in Las Vegas -- SlotZilla.  

Now, we know what you're thinking.... It's something that you might see at some demo-derby at the local dirt track.  Nope -- "SlotZilla" is the latest thing to hit Downtown Las Vegas.  Fasten your seat belts -- SlotZilla is a ZIP-LINE ride that takes you right down into Downtown Vegas.  You KNOW we've got the footage for ya; Scott Roeben of VitalVegas.com strapped a helmet-cam on some poor, unsuspecting dude that was riding this thing for the first time.  Here's that first-person look at SlotZilla....


SlotZilla.  $20 / ride? OK, we're in.

Wow.  OK, we'll we can't move this past the High Roller into the #1 spot on our list, but someone tell the zombies to step aside.  This orange county casino night party company gives 12 big thumbs-up to something that might just make our strip-loving team wander downtown, next time we're out in Las Vegas.  (Ed. Note: This may sound weird, but our annual Aces Casino Christmas party is coming up, on June 27, in Las Vegas.  I'm guessing SlotZilla is on the menu.  Oh, and why June for a Christmas Party?  It's the only weekend we had open this year.  Hey - We're really busy over here.  It's the price of success.)  

That's all for now... Have a great weekend, and we'll see all six of you back here on Monday for another "scintillating and informative" piece in the Aces Casino Blog.  Aces OUT....

The Aces Casino Blog: The Final Results Are In, And The Winner Of The First-Annual "Who's First - SkyVue vs. High Roller" Race Was... Not Even Close


We have a winner!

Actually, it appears that we HAD a winner in our 2013 "SkyVue v. High Roller" competition quite some time ago, but you know this orange county casino party company -- Aces Casino ALWAYS waits for the "official" designation on the tote board before paying off all winning tickets.

Now, for those of you that aren't quite up-to-speed on what the heck we're talking about, you can catch up on our past Aces Casino Blog entries on this "fierce" competition here, here, here - and  here. Go ahead, check out the Aces Casino Blog Archives.  We'll wait.


And remember, look out for "High Voltage," especially during public acts of affection.

OK, you up to speed, now?  Good... Now, we SHOULD have known that this battle for wheel supremacy was over when "Tiny The Tumbleweed" made his appearance in "support" of SkyVue (Ed. Note: Obviously, Scott Roeben, he of his super-blog "VitalVegas" knew the inside story here) , but hey, we'll always give the underdog the benefit of the doubt.

Until, of course that it's determined that the underdog had fleas.

Yeah, it's over.  The winner, by knockout in what turned out to be the 7th round of Aces Blog posts, and new champion of Ferris Wheel supremacy in Las Vegas --- The High Roller!

Missed on my ticket price prediction by ten bucks (It's $30/lap).

We love the part about an "optional bar" being rolled into your gondola for things like bachelor-ette parties.  Hey, who wouldn't pay $30 to ride in that bubble for a party like that?  Marketers from all over the globe will be creating proposals for the builders of this "world's tallest Ferris wheel" (Ed. Note: Please don't mention that term to the folks at Caesars Entertainment -- They hate it), which ended up costing about $500M to build.  Yeah, that's right.  Half-a-BILLION.

Wow.  OK, I'll pay the extra ten bucks to take a lap on that thing.  500 Mil?  Yeah, we can pony up the extra sawbuck for the High Roller.

Oh, hey, let's not forget our pseudo-challenger in this "Las Vegas Space Race," our buddies over at SkyVue.  Here, we've got a link to SkyVue's still-operating WebCam that shows the current state of the "World's Largest SlingShot" right here.  Also, those of you that want to take a shot at predicting what date that the SkyVue WebCam will go off line can enter through our website right here.

Seriously.  We're all about games of chance and contests over here at the top orange county casino night party company on the west coast.  So, come and play!  Just e-mail us the date that you think that someone over at SkyVue will wake up and kill that video feed, and if you have that exact date on your submission, you'll be automatically entered into our drawing to possibly win a trip to Las Vegas and join all of our Aces Casino Blog team as THEY ride the High Roller!  Come on, It's free.  We'll expect your e-mails!

That's all for now.  Get your WebCam "Ghoul-Pool" predictions in right away, and we'll see you on Thursday with another edition of our orange county casino party parakeet paper, the Aces Casino Blog.  Take care, see you then!

The Aces Casino Blog" Anyone Up For a Little War? Then Suit Up - It's Time To Show Off The Winner Of The 2013 'New Table Games' Award -- War Blackjack!


I have to admit it... When I saw the name of 2013's "New Casino Table Games Award," I was thinking to myself, "What, were there only 2 entries?"  And, as usual, I was premature in my analysis of what turned out to be a pretty interesting "cross-breeding" of two of Las Vegas' favorite table games -- War, and Blackjack.  Simple in It's design, but fun to take on, the time has come to introduce the latest soon-to-be craze at a casino pit near you -- "War Blackjack."

 "War Blackjack," the brainchild of Garry Hamud of War Blackjack, Inc., shows that you don't need to create something so confusing that rocket scientists shake their heads in amazement on how complex some new games have been.  War Blackjack led a field of 25 entrants in the 2013 Table Games Conference "New Games" Series, and for good reason.

It's FUN!

This new game also won the 2014 Aces Casino Blog "Why Didn't I Think Of That" award, and for good reason.  We can see this particular game making it's way onto this orange county casino party company gaming floor VERY soon, for two reasons -- 1) It's easy to learn, and 2) It's SO easy to learn. Here's a little snippet of info on this simplistic new entrant into the casino gaming industry.

OK, so it says "combing, not "combining."  Keep the game, fire the guy that wrote the script.


Our kudos to Garry and his staff for creating a pretty cool game that we're sure will make it's way onto the list of games available at our orange county casino night party crew VERY soon.  (Ed. Note: We've got $5 that says Garry fixes that spelling glitch in his YouTube fluff piece in the next 72 hours.)  That's all for now... Next up -- It's time for the Aces Casino Blog to recognize the winner in our famous "SkyVue v. High Roller" competition.  We'll see you on Monday with those not-so-surprising results!

The Aces Casino Blog: Those Gamers Looking For a Tweak In The Way Roulette Is Played May Have Just Found It Here With The New "Riverboat Roulette!"


If there's ONE thing that this crazy bunch of orange county casino party company crazies LOVE, It's new casino games.  And, just like clockwork, every year at about this time, a company called BNP puts on their annual "Tables Games Conference," where table game designers from far and wide are given the chance to show off their new creations in front of a very prestigious and high-octane group of casino execs that are more than willing to give their new product a test drive.

This year, the game that stood out to us here at Aces Casino (those orange county casino night guys) was a game that we had been waiting for, for a VERY long time -- A game that put quite a twist on the time-honored game of Roulette, something called "Riverboat Roulette." 

This game was first brought to our attention from none other than the man behind our favorite "Las Vegas-Flavored" blog, Scott Roeben of Vital Vegas.  You can check out his report on this colorful take on the "Wheel Of Fortune" (Ed. Note:Tell Merv Griffin that his royalty payment is in the mail)  here.  It's the brainchild of the folks over at Double Luck Gaming Company, and we applaud them for their effort, especially since the game is now "being spread" at the Golden Gate Casino in Downtown Las Vegas.


Not your Grandpa's Roulette, but, then again, Grampa wasn't much of a gambler.

Riverboat Roulette won second prize in the "New Table Games" Division (Ed. Note: First place went to a game called "War Blackjack," a game we'll look at later on), and is just what the doctor ordered to spruce up what some might feel is a table game worth sprucin' up.

"31, Black, Odd and Yellow."  Oh, and there's blue AND teal, too.  Don't ask.

Below this Aces Casino Blog entry is a YouTube video that takes an in-depth look at "Riverboat Roulette," which shows the multitude of plays and combinations available.  If anyone wanders "Downtown" and gives this game a shot, please let us know (Ed. Note: Unless they're looking for casino chip reimbursement.  That's handled at our sister location in the Caribbean).  We'd love to hear how it went!  Next up in the Blog on Thursday, we look at the 1st-place winner at the Table Games Conference -- "War Blackjack."  We'll see you then!

The Aces Casino Blog: Here's The "Sneal Preview" We Promised That Shows The Brand New Game Of "Riverboat Roulette." (Just As We Promised.)

We here at the top orange county casino night party company on the west coast (Aces Casino for short) would be VERY interested in our readers' views on Riverboat Roulette, a game that WE consider a viable option to the game's traditional setup.  Check out this vid, and tell us what you think... Our e-mail contact info can be found right here.  Enjoy!

Aces Casino Blog: What Better Way To Waste Our Faithful Blog Readers' Time Than To Hit Them With Our Very Own Video Poker Game Simulator?


Here at Aces Casino Entertainment, we just LOVE games - All kinds of games, from the traditional casino games that can be found in just about any reputable Las Vegas-based casino, to the various card and board games found at your local card shop and department store.  Bottom line -- When you're the top Orange county casino party company on the west coast, and the word "entertainment" is in your name, you had best know the Las Vegas gaming business.

And, without question, we DO.  (Ed. Note: They love YouTube, too, but that's another story.)

The best news of all in this shameless brag from the Aces Casino "Ministers of Propaganda" is that we ALSO love to SHARE our good fortune with our many clients up and down the California coast.  That's why our Aces Blog, A.K.a. the "Parakeet Paper," is such a useful tool -- We can interact not only with our many on-site orange county casino party clients at one of our many live fundraising and private party events, but also with people that find us right here on our blog.

So, to that end, the team at Aces Casino Entertainment have decreed that the month of May this year will be known as "Let's Play Games" month here on the blog.  Every Monday and Thursday here on the blog this month, we'll post a great link to one of the many fine Las Vegas-style casino game trainers for our fans to play with and try out.  Take one of our many game trainers for a spin, and see if you like the games, without the sting of playing for real money.

That having been said, It's time for us to wrap up our "Let's Play Games" training series with our last entrant into the "casino practice" genre -- Video Poker.  Before you begin, you SHOULD check out just what machines to look for when it comes to these "quarter-eaters," ans we suggest "The Wizard of Vegas" might be a good place to begin your quest.  Just sayin'.

Video Poker!

Well, my friends, that's all for another edition of the Aces Casino Blog "Game Trainers."  We hope you liked taking all of the games for a free test-drive.  Next up on the parakeet paper, we move into June, which means It's time for our favorite subjects here on the Aces Casino Blog -- The up-and-coming "New Casino Games" Blog Series.  It starts on Monday, June 2nd, so come on back and we'll see if any of the latest new ideas in table games tickles your fancies.  We'll see you on Monday!

(Ed. Note: P.S. -- As of today, the SkyVue WebCam is still up.  Those e-mail entries with today's date or earlier are out.  Remember, only one entry per e-mail address, you internet gaming cheaters!)
