General Casino Party Tips
What better theme is there for a casino party than Las Vegas? Center the decorations and activities around a Sin City theme, with bright lights, slot machines, card tables, cocktail servers and live music.
Vegas is also known for its extravagant buffets. Assemble a smorgasbord of options, such as hors d'oeuvres, hot and cold meats, smoked and pickled fish, cheeses, salads, and steaks. Use Vegas-theme tableware and centerpieces for added flair.
Casino parties make successful fundraising events. Provide awards or raffles as incentives for donating to charity. When renting casino equipment, ask questions, such as whether chips, cards and tokens are included in the rental price, whether the company charges a delivery charge, and how much the deposits are. If the company offers insurance, take it. Some companies can customize the gamnling tables with a charity name or organization logo. Also, before renting tables, calculate how much space is available, and how many guests will attend. Allow for enough space to mingle without feeling too crowded.
Check with laws in your state on running casino parties. The rule of thumb is that it illegal to play for money.
