Not Using Professional Dealers

Rather than trying to hire inexperienced friends or family to run your casino games, consider hiring professional dealers. They will know how to run the games, keep guests entertained, and keep things running smoothly, allowing you to relax and enjoy the evening.

Not Renting Proper Casino Equipment

You want your casino night to “wow” your guests. The best way to create an authentic Las Vegas experience is to rent the right casino gaming equipment. From craps tables and slots to roulette and prize wheels, renting gaming equipment from a reputable company is sure to impress!

Skimping on the Invitations

Invitations are a must-have for your casino party! They not only provide guests with all the essential event information, such as the date and time, but with casino-themed invitations, you can set the mood and get your guests excited for the event.

Forgetting Supplies

The last thing you want to do is run out of plates, cups, tickets, poker chips, or other important casino party supplies. To help stay organized, make a comprehensive list of all the supplies you will need based on your guest count. This will give a place where you can check off supplies as you get them, so you don’t overlook anything important.

Not Having Enough Games for all Guests

When talking to your casino party professionals, be sure to ask them how many people can comfortably sit at the poker tables, craps tables and how many people can play games such as roulette or blackjack at once. Using this information, look at your guest list and plan out how many tables and other gaming equipment you will need to accommodate them.

If you are short on casino games, guests will be left to wait. This could cause frustration among the guests, causing them to leave early or have a bad experience.

Forgetting to Monitor How Much Alcohol People are Drinking

Having a bar at your casino party adds to the party’s authenticity and provides guests with a place to relax in between games. It is important to have professional bartenders serving the alcohol. They are trained to watch guest consumption to help prevent people from becoming belligerent. You want guests to have fun, but it is essential to have measures in place so things don’t get out of hand.

Not Purchasing Exciting Prizes for the Games

People gamble in hopes of winning a prize. If guests have nothing to play for, they may tire of the casino games quickly. Be sure to have a lineup of fun and exciting prizes to keep guests engaged and gambling the night away! Some examples of excellent casino party prizes include:
  • Gift cards
  • Lottery tickets
  • Concert or sporting event tickets
  • Spa or massage certificates
  • Themed prize baskets (spa basket, movie night basket, beach day/pool day basket)
  • Alcohol
