What is a Casino Party?
Casino parties are a fun and legal way to bring the Las Vegas experience to your home, workplace or venue and can be a great idea for your corporate Christmas party, social gathering or fundraiser! You and your guests can gamble on casino-quality gaming tables without the risk of losing real money. Furthermore, guests will enjoy the company of their family, friends and colleagues while playing their favourite casino games, while betting for fun at no risk to them! You can rent casino games and dealers for your party and enjoy the real Las Vegas experience without any risk!
How does a Casino Party work?
We will bring everything you need to your home, workplace or venue to manage your casino-themed event. Whether for birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, fundraisers, graduations, corporate events or holiday parties, we will bring the tables, chips, accessories, dealers and experience needed to make your event an unforgettable one.
Tables and dealers arrive at your location before your event for setup. As your guests start to arrive or the casino-portion of your party begins, we provide play money vouchers for your guests which they can treat as cash for the duration of the event, purchasing play chips from any of the casino tables and using to gamble like they would in any casino. Our dealers will invite and encourage your more timid guests and will be happy to help players learn the ins and outs of the games.
At the end of the night, if prizes are a part of your event, we can help incorporating our gaming tables in one of a few ways:
- Prize(s) can be given to the guest with the highest chip count at the end of the night. Subsequent gifts can also be given to runners-up and/or biggest losers if necessary.
- Prize(s) can be auctioned off for guests to purchase with their play chips.
- Prize(s) can be raffled off for tickets which can be purchased with their play chips.
Why throw a Casino Party?
If you’re an employer, Casino Parties are a great way to encourage team building, improve morale, or just blow off steam for that end of year event. Your employees would love the opportunity to bring their families to a risk-free casino event where they can enjoy a genuine Las Vegas setting. Table games are a great way to promote socializing between colleagues while having fun at the same time.
If you’re planning a birthday party or holiday event, Casino Parties are the best option for you. Not only is it an affordable option for hours of fun and entertainment, it provide a great and memorable theme for your party that will be talked about for years to come.
Casino parties can be one of the most effective means of fundraising as well. Whether you are planning a large scale charity event or humble stag/doe, having casino games are a great way to encourage guest donations for a chance to win prizes at the end of the night.
A casino party can be used to host your private poker tournament, set up a gathering of blackjack tables or build your party around an eight foot Craps table. When you host your own casino party, your options are endless. Casino parties are incredibly easy to plan; because we show up with everything needed to run the event, all that we need to discuss is the time, location and any custom details to make your event run perfectly.
What are the table specifications?
Tricks of the Spade Casino Rental uses casino-quality gaming tables. All tables are custom made with high-quality stain resistant speed cloth and include stainless steel drink holders. All tables measure approximately 4′ x 6′ cross-section and are standing height (except for seated poker tables). Tables are made with metal folding legs for easy transport and fully skirted to class up their look. They are incredibly sturdy, allowing a full table to lean on them without problems. To see the tables in action visit our Gallery.
How many tables do I need?
Each table can play anywhere from 6-10 people, depending on the game. For an event where the casino gaming is the main (or only) attraction, we recommend having enough tables to play 75-90% of the guests at any one time. For example, for a party of 50 guests, we would recommend 6 tables playing ~40 people. For an event where casino gaming is a side attraction or one of many, we would recommend having enough tables to play 25-50% of the guests at once. For a party of 50 guests, for example, we would recommend only 3 or 4 tables. We have no minimum party size – if your group only has 6-7 people, we can bring a single table!
How much do Casino Parties cost?
Cost varies depending on the number of tables in your package, the date and time of your event as well as the location. We have dealers all over Ontario who love working these kinds of events so we are able to keep our costs down even for out-of-town events! To keep your costs even lower, consider having one or more of your guests deal at some of our tables. See our Packages page for more info about running a Casino Night with fewer dealers.
What are the legal limitations of a casino night?
None! We do not handle real money or cash during the event. There is no possibility of guests winning real money through placing a wager, and as such, our casino parties do not classify as a gaming establishment as defined by OLG/ACGO. We only deal in play chips and play money. Casino parties are perfectly legal and do not require any special licenses or permits unless used as charitable fundraising event.
Do I need to be 19 to participate?
No! As long as your venue is not 19+, kids of all ages can take part in casino parties because there is no real gambling involved.
What if some of our guests don’t know how to gamble?
No problem! Our dealers not only want to see you playing and having fun, they want to see you win! Our dealers are happy to explain the game as it’s happening and give helpful tips to give you the edge.
