Fun Casinos and Job Satisfaction

As told by June Howley, Business Owner of Aces Fun Casinos.

What is it, after twenty years of working in fun casinos – 16 of those with my own business – keeps me enjoying my work?

As a provider of fun casinos I have been asked to attend thousands of different events at venues ranging from castles to chip shops, stately homes to narrow boats. We’ve worked on farms, in festivals, race courses and tv studios, in people’s kitchens, even their bedrooms when space was at a premium.

We’ve driven to the middle of nowhere, carted our gear across fields and gardens, in through French windows, slithered through blizzards and held our breath driving through flash floods. Why?

Speaking as someone who spent many years in the gaming industry, working in a variety of casinos in the UK and abroad I can say in all honesty that, apart from the excitement of travelling to new countries and all that entails, I find the fun casinos that I do are far more enjoyable.

No one stands to lose their income over the turn of a card or the spin of the wheel.

I am able to engage with my players, tell them a yarn perhaps, teach them a little strategy or just have a bit of banter going alongside the game. How very different from the mostly silent and tense games in the gambling halls of the world, where players show no emotion whatsoever or worse, blaming the croupier for their losses.

Fun Casinos are a light-hearted form of entertainment and really – not just for the player. Most of the croupiers that work in my fun casinos have had many years experience working in the gaming industry. They leave for a variety of reasons but a part of them still miss the GAMES as did I. So, after years of meeting all sorts of different people, driving to different places, celebrating different occasions– birthdays, anniversaries, fund raisers, corporate entertainment, weddings – helping to make an event the best it can be and seeing the enjoyment on people’s faces – that’s what gives me job satisfaction. That’s what keeps me doing what I do and enjoying it while I’m doing it.

Best and Worst Blackjack Hands

What’s The Best Blackjack Starting Cards?

Everybody’s ideal hand in blackjack is 21 right away. After all, being dealt 21 on your first two cards automatically wins you the hand (provided the dealer doesn’t have blackjack) and nets you either a 3:2 or 6:5 payout. So if you bet $10 under 3:2 payout rules, you’d collect a £15 profit.

Unfortunately, we can’t rely on being dealt a natural blackjack too often. In a standard 6-deck game, you only have a 4.75% chance of being dealt a natural. That said, you’ll be dealing with a large variety of hands while trying to improve your score and beat the dealer. And here’s a look at the best and worst among the bunch.


 

Best Starting Hands

Two Aces – Why not start off with the chance to have two great hands in one round!? Split this one every time because you have an excellent opportunity to win both hands.

11 – The great thing about being dealt an 11 is that you’re just one 10-value card away from hitting 21. And even if you don’t get a 10-value card, 7, 8 or 9 still leave you in pretty good position. When your cards are 11, it’s recommended that you double down every time, except for when the dealer has an ace.

10 – This is another hand where you double down in most situations, save for when the dealer has a 10 or an ace. Speaking of the latter, if you’re lucky enough to get an ace, you will hit 21.


 

Worst Starting Hands

16 – The problem with 16 is that the dealer is supposed to hit until they at least reach 17. Of course, the dealer will bust out trying to do this sometimes, but more often they won’t. What’s worse is that when you hit to try and get a better score, you stand a good chance of busting out.

15 – This is yet another hand that puts you in a poor position to win because your score isn’t very high, yet you might bust out by hitting. For this reason, it’s definitely a good idea to grab a blackjack strategy chart and make the correct moves so you avoid being put in these situations.
