Across the country, cities are looking for ways to refill drained budgets and get people back to spending money. As a result, more and more states are legalizing gaming in the form of slots parlors and betting halls. This trend seems to have what the public appetite for in gambling. Popular games like roulette, craps, and even slots have come back into favor in a big way.
One place that many will notice this trend is in private casino parties. From business and corporate events to elementary school fundraisers, everyone is getting in on the action. But when you are planning a casino night, the last thing you want to gamble on is the party planner. You want someone with a great track record and quality products so that you can turn a roll of the dice into a sure thing.
The first thing every casino party needs is a theme or a vibe. Before you choose a casino night planner to manage the games, ambiance, and flow of your party, you have to decide what kind of casino you are running. Are you Vegas chic, with ritzy high rollers wall to wall? Maybe you want a vintage Monte Carlo look, with cads, flappers and swingers sipping martinis. Or maybe even a raw, betting-hall look with old-fashioned dice games, poker, stiff drinks, and stiff upper lips. With their increase in popularity, casino party options have expanded, allowing you to create your perfect, tailor-made atmosphere.
Atmosphere is not the only place your casino options have expanded. You have your pick of casino games. Whether you want a few small tables or are looking to recreate the main room at Caesars, you will be able to fill the room with hungry gamblers if you increase the variety of games you offer. There are the basics like poker, blackjack, or betting wheel games. But to really make your party stand out, many casino party planners offer craps and roulette tables. Give your guests scorecards with spaces for every game on the floor to encourage circulation. Watch the money pour in!
Another way to encourage betting is to offer prizes for the chip leaders. Since casino night games are not played for real money, people will bet more if they know that their “funny money” can be turned into raffle tickets or exchanged for prizes. Sports memorabilia, gift certificates, and event tickets often make attractive prizes. Casino nights have become especially eye-catching as fundraisers for education, charity, or other worthy causes. If you are planning a fundraiser, try exchanging publicity for donated prizes from local businesses. You will be surprised how many jump at the chance to be a part of the action.
As popular as gambling gets, people never love losing money. With a casino night event, you bring the fun of casino games without the risk of losing your shirt. We give 20-1 odds that your casino event will be a huge hit!
