The Aces Casino Blog: This May Be Hard To Believe, But Aces Casino Is Preparing To Celebrate Their 25th Year In The Casino Party Industry! (It's True!)


I know... That Headline SHOCKED us, as well, here at the orange county casino party company industry.  "Aces Casino Entertainment - 25 Years In Business!"  Wow... THAT was a fast quarter-century!  (Ed. Note: Maybe for YOU, it is.  It's been a LOOONG time, on this end, dealing with all of you crazies.)

So, to that end, we'll make this Aces Casino Blog entry short and sweet -- Aces Casino Entertainment opened it's doors back in April of 1994, so we thought, "Let's pass along the celebratory feeling in the way of some DEEPLY discounted events for the month of April!"

Great idea.

The Aces Casino Blog: A Late Friday Addition To The Blog (Should Have Been Here Last Week!) -- A St. Paddy's Slot Machine Called "Clover Grove!"


I don't Know HOW the powers that be that run the Aces Casino Blog didn't see this lil' ditty come thru the game trainer series for last March 17th (Ed. Note: Too much green beer would be our guess), but this one comes under the heading, "Better Late Than Never!"  

Courtesy of the top orange county casino party on the west coast, here's a slot machine game trainer that fits the "Erin Go Brah" set perfectly, and it doesn't cost a nickel to play it.  Without further adieu, we give you, "Clover Grove!"

The Aces Casino Blog "Blast From The Past:" The History Of The Gambling Ships (Now Un-Redacted), Which Includes "The Battle Of Santa Monica Bay."


Well, we fixed it.  Kinda.  OK, Aces Blog Fans - Here is the original post of the "Battle Of Santa MonicaBay," In Full View.  Enjoy...

Here at Aces Casino, the place widely recognized as the top orange county casino party in southern California, we're big on history -- Specifically the history surrounding the casino gaming industry and the many games that we love to play.  At one of our casino night events held recently, some questions arose that centered around OUR favorite stories regarding this relatively short, but interesting history surrounding west coast casino gaming.
When my response to their inquiry brought up "The Battle of Santa Monica Bay," you could hear a pin drop.  Quizzical looks were aplenty, as everyone looked at me and asked their one-word question.... "What??" 
"You've never heard of The Battle of Santa Monica Bay,?" I responded as if I was dumbfounded, yet with a slightly sarcastic tone.  "Why, It's only the greatest southern California naval battle in the HISTORY of Los Angeles casino gaming!"  To which our Aces Casino crew said, "Blarney!  But tell us more about this 'Battle of Santa Monica Bay,' Aces...."  (Ed. Note: Yeah, It's true.... I'm the one that asked.  Sue me, I had never heard the story.)
Why, I'll be happy to tell you, my friends... The story goes something like this.... Back in the 1920's and 1930's, way before Las Vegas was truly born, and right smack-dab in the middle of prohibition  (Ed. Note: back in your teenage years, I'm guessing...hehe), the L.A. residents from that time period loved to take a lil' drink (which were against the rules of prohibition) and play those famous games of chance that we all know so well (Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and the like), which were truly outlawed by the staunch rules against gambling in Los Angeles County.
That's where a man named Tony Cornero came in.
You can guess which one is Tony "The Hat" Cornero.
Tony Cornero wasn't big on the laws of L.A. at the time, and thought he had figured out a way to beat the system -- Gambling ships.  He came up with the idea that went something like this; If maritime laws allowed the playing of games of chance in international waters, than why doesn't someone get a big boat that's loaded with game tables and slot machines, float it out about 3.1 miles off the coast in Santa Monica bay, and "Viola!"  Meet the gambling ship "Rex," and instant floating casino.
Not exactly the Disney "Fantasy," but not bad for the 1930's.
For it's day, the "Rex" had all the amenities that gambling buffs and top-notch Hollywood stars were looking for, and at just some 3 miles away from the Santa Monica pier, it (as well as three other ships known for providing the same mode of entertainment) was within easy reach of the "water taxis" of the time.  And, boy, did Mr. Cornero advertise his wares in the local papers....
Tell me you wouldn't want to catch a water taxi, and check this out.
Unfortunately for "The Hat," the then-California Attorney General, Earl Warren was NOT too hep or big on Cornero and his floating casino in Santa Monica Bay.  He set out to take "The Hat" down, and the way he did it was a stroke of genius.  You can read all about "The Battle Of Santa Monica Bay" by using this link.  It's a great piece of L.A. history, and no one tells it better than "LAIST."   Oh - But, before we go, we have to share one more photograph taken during former Attorney General Warren's raid that fateful day in 1939.  Here's a warning to those of you that love to gaze at vintage slot machines; You may want to turn away from the screen.....
Bet "The Hat" didn't dig THIS.  So sad to see...
And just for reference.... Those of you out there that are wondering why Aces Casino Entertainment goes the extra mile to bring these fun and informative stories to our long-time Aces Blog, when other companies can't even spell the word, "Blog" -- We love going the extra mile for ALL of our clients, as well as prospective clients.  Heck, out top-viewed blog entry of all time is the one about the three things that everyone should look into when hiring a good casino party company.  Our competitors are learning the ropes thru us; what do they say?  "Often imitated, never duplicated."  Every client of ours finds this out eventually -- We're NOT like ANY other casino party company out there.  We love what we do, and we do it well.  THAT'S why we're the top-rated orange county casino party company in the biz... OK, brag over.
That's all for now.  Hope you enjoyed our little Aces Casino Blog trip down memory lane.... We'll be back next time with another "scintillating" blog entry from the top orange county casino night party company in SoCal, as we continue our "Blast From The Past" series.  See you then!

The Aces Casino Blog "Extra:" Geogian Ski Lift Malfunctions, Skiers Thrown Around Like Toys; 10 People Injured, Skiers Seen Jumping Off The Lift


You talk about a wild ride!  Aces Casino Entertainment spotted this on the news, a one-minute video that will have you cringing.  Thanks to the top orange county casino party company on the west coast for spotting this news flash, hope everyone's OK....


Full speed, in REVERSE.  My goodness...

Luckily, no one was killed, ten people injured, at last count.  Prayers to all those that were hurt, let the lawsuits begin.  (Let the attorneys ride the ski lift to get up the mountain.)

The Aces Casino Blog: If You Look Hard Enough, You'll Definitely Be Able To Find Some Of The Strangest Stuff On The Internet. (We Knew That!)


Over here at Aces Casino Entertainment (You know - The award-winning orange county casino night party company!), we strive for greatness in every possible situation.  (Ed: Note: Is that why you broke the blog with that "Blast From The Past" redacted post yesterday?  Nice.)  Especially, those of us that write for this parakeet-paper Blog for VERY little pay.  (Ed. Note: Please refer to prior Editor's note above.)

That's why we decided to reach into the Aces Casino suggestion box... Frankly, for suggestions on how to dazzle the Aces Casino Blog masses (6?) with another scintillating Blog entry.  To that end, here are three things that we would NEVER have found on the internet, without the assistance from some of the crack team that IS Aces Casino Entertainment.

Suggestion #1 -- (Ed. Note: My Favorite) -- "Don't Hug Me - I'm Scared!"

This YouTube video begins as what seems to be a creative lil' children's song ... Until we get to the 1:30 mark, when the creepiness seeps in, and we find out later that the word "death" appears on the board.  There is something blatantly eerie about these (Yes, THESE) videos.  There are five more, including "Green is not a creative color."

Oh-My-Gosh.  There's FIVE MORE?

Suggestion #2 -- OMG Laser Guns

So, you ask yourself, what might happen if you equipped a squirrel with a laser gun?  Well, I suppose, THIS might happen.....

"Pew-Pew-Pew!"

Suggestion #3 -- The Chin Piercing

No video, just the picture that may stay with you for a bit.  Actual photo, no photo-shop.


Don't believe it?  Here's the link.

Well, that should cause our friends at the top orange county casino party company on the west coast a few night-sweats.  Let this blog post forever take the place of the "redacted blog post" from now, into eternity.  We'll work on our "blast from the past" postings, and get them fixed.  Have a good weekend, and please don't pierce ANYTHING this weekend!

The Aces Casino Blog "Blast From The Past:" Has Anyone Heard Of Tony Cornero, His "Gambling Ships," And "The Battle Of Santa Monica Bay?"


(Ed. Note: This week, The Aces Casino Blog takes a look at some of the all-time most-popular posts created by those wacky writers in the Aces Casino Blog division.  Today, we look back at something we call "The Battle Of Santa Monica Bay."  Enjoy, we'll be back with another "Blast From The Past" on Monday.)
