How long should my casino party last?
3 hours of dealing time is the average for most casino parties. This allows plenty of time to complete the entire event in approximately a 5 hour time period.
When should we open the tables / start the gaming?
Try to allow at least 1 hour before starting the casino portion of your event. This gives your guests time to arrive, settle in and eat before you start the games. Also remember to plan adequate time to award your prizes upon completion of the gaming.
How many tables do we need?
Generally 60-70% of your attendees will play the casino games. Tables can accommodate different number of players.
- BlackJack – 7 players
- Roulette – 8 players
- Craps – 12 players
- Poker – 8 players
Do we need to tip the dealers?
Tipping of the dealers is entirely up to you. Our staff will never solicit tips from your guests. At some events, guests may tip dealers directly as they play, however, many event hosts don’t want their guests to have to spend money at their party! As a client, you may add a tip to the final payment, if you so desire. The customary tip is 15% to 20% of the total invoiced amount. Any amount received will be divided equally among the staff that worked your event. And, of course, our staff extends heartfelt thanks for any gratuity received.
How do our guests receive chips to play with?
We will supply you with a customized chip voucher for each of your guests. We will work with you to design these and to determine the amount of chips each guest will start with. They can include a company logo, message, or picture. You may distribute these vouchers as guests arrive, at registration, or one of several other creative ways. Your guests may cash these vouchers in with any of the casino dealers.
How should we give prizes away?
There are 3 basic ways to award the prizes:
- Top Winners
Of all the versions listed, we highly recommend the raffle method. For a raffle, your guests will cash in all their chips with the dealers for raffle tickets, generally at a rate of 1 raffle ticket per $1,000 in chips. Guests are always given at least 1 raffle ticket which keeps everyone’s interest until the very end. Big winners are awarded with more tickets, giving them a better chance to win. Guests who elect not to play can also participate in the raffle by exchanging their casino chip voucher in for raffle tickets. The raffle includes everyone! Raffles can be conducted as a single drawing or auction style drawing. The raffle method is, by far, the best method for fund-raisers. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you would like to discuss the various options in more details- it’s always our pleasure to help!
