Casino Quest was founded by two passionate gaming professionals - Alex and David - and some really incredible supporting students, staff, family, friends and Fashion Show's very own Brent.
IMAGINE THE ODDS
It all started off the strip at CEG Dealer School, a trade school and job placement center that trains locals to become casino dealers. It became Casino Quest, located on the famed Las Vegas strip at one of the most celebrated malls in the world. We teach all casino games to players of all stripes while providing even more opportunities for students of CEG - a WIN WIN with no losers.
The Casino Quest Story
Here is Alex working out his lunch order while David is trying to navigate some very important but very small detail.
Alex, a Las Vegas native and decade-long casino VIP dealer (Wynn, Cosmo) and supervisor (Gold Coast, Hard Rock), founded CEG Dealer School in 2013. Against a chorus of negativity, an early eviction, and more than a dozen competitors, Alex kept CEG alive and thriving despite every obstacle.
David, a former homeless Vet, found his future in Las Vegas at an early age. From his first job dealing a 25-cent dice game at the Golden Gate to a career that spanned 12 more casinos and 28 years, David forged a new path with Alex in 2017.
Together, Alex and David have found success. Now on its third expansion, CEG offers 23 tables, 14 instructors and a network of 36 casinos for job placement.
But the story doesn't stop there
On one very random day, a guy named Brent called from the Fashion Show Mall. In fact, Alex and David thought it was a prank call. Eventually they got around to a meeting, worked out some logistics and talked to their students and graduates about participating in a gaming showcase for March Madness at the Fashion Show Mall.
CEG and Fashion Show Mall held a fantastic event and guess what? A LOT of people had fun, lots of fun, and so did our dealers and staff.
Enter Brent again with another idea and some space at the Fashion Show Mall.
From some numbers on a napkin, a little sweat, all of their savings and a few well-placed friends, the work began on a place where you can learn to play or master casino games without risking real money, where you can enjoy a comfortable, friendly environment, away from the smoke, bosses and sometimes unforgiving players.
That place is now Casino Quest Las Vegas @ Fashion Show Mall!
On May 13th 2021, a year after closing due to Covid, Casino Quest opened its 2nd location.
Now at Suites 2000 (1800 square feet) and 2640 (4800 square feet)!
