The casino experience

Simple steps to host a casino night is our long overdue blog. But before we do this, let’s look at the reasons why casinos are popular. 


Simple steps to host a casino night

Firstly, you live in the moment and forget about everything else when you visit a casino. Secondly, it’s a magical world where you can have loads of fun and feel like nothing else matters. Thirdly and most importantly, you often get a rush from winning and losing.

Unfortunately, this is often why it can be addictive to some people, so today, we’re going to introduce you to simple steps to help you plan a casino night without the darker side of gambling.

Preparation, games and guest selection

The secret to the success of most events is in preparation, but if you follow our simple steps to host a casino night, it won’t be so daunting. We’re here to guide you if you need our help.

Which day works best? What’s the best time to start and end your casino night?  Do you need props? Music- How do you set the right tone? Games selection – Finding games people can learn easily? Are you going to use fun money as your currency for the night? Do you need advice on which games work best for a type of group? How would you like to place the tables to get maximum effect? How long would you like your guests to play for before doing other aspects of your event?

If it’s for a charity fundraiser event, the issues are often how to raise money for the chosen charity, attract guests to play without making them feel like they are gambling, and attract sponsors.

I’ve often heard people talk about guest selection. Of course, this can be true when you pick games like poker that need guests to want to play. But, sometimes, it’s the ambience, mystery and excitement that attracts guests who would never consider playing normally.

Food is often a big issue at casino-themed events. It depends on how you want it to happen so that the casino and dinner can work together. It’s hard to play while eating, except it’s a buffet-style meal that allows guests to eat at the gaming tables.

Finding the right professionals to help you host a casino night

A big factor in addressing the simple steps to host a casino night is finding the right company to work for you.

If you’re looking to host a poker night, nothing beats referrals from people you can trust.
