We are often asked what is the best corporate party idea to get everyone involved on a night out. While there is no one answer .. a Fun Casino party ticks a lot of boxes..
It looks great, it is very inclusive, very interactive and gets people talking and mingling!
So what should I consider when organising a Fun Casino Night?
Get the Right Company Involved
When choosing a provider you should look for someone who has been in the business for a
while. A proven track record is everything. Some companies just provide the tables with no show
whatsoever. These should be avoided as the event company should bring the
entertainment. They provide the atmosphere and should work to get your guests involved.
Music is an important part of the evening so make sure this is included in any quote. Also
check the quality of the tables.. ask for photos!! Some Blackjack and Roulette tables out
there are cheap and old looking. Junction Productions have been running Casino Parties for
over 15 years and in this time we have perfected a Casino Party that is interactive and
entertaining and we recover our tables regularly.
Find the Right Venue
Once you have your event planner or entertainment company you will need to find the
right venue. Space is your most important consideration here. If you are hosting a party for
100 guests and you intend to seat them all, you will need a space that can host 160 people.
This is because your Blackjack and Roulette table take up quite a bit of space. Each Blackjack
table is roughly 5ft x 3.5ft and each Roulette table is roughly 8ft x 3.5ft. Make sure the
venue can accommodate your numbers.
Get the Invitations right
Having a good invitation communicates the theme from the start. It’s the first impression
your guests will have of what kind of party they are going to. The Casino theme can be done
in many ways so you have lots of options whether its an email or written invitation. Some
clients like to expand the theme and it’s a great way to add an extra dimension to the party.

Also don’t forget to put all the information your guests need on the invitation like start and
end time, location etc.
Along with the theme you could ask your guests to dress the part. Black Tie is the obvious
choice here and it creates a fantastic atmosphere when all your guests make the effort and dress up. You could also provide some fun hats and feather boas at the entrance for people to add to their costumes. People love free stuff! Be sure and mention the dress code on your invites.
Casino Theme Decorations
Dressing the room is very important. You want guests to be wowed once they enter the
room. The good news is with the Fun Casino Night the tables will already make the room
look decorated but with a few extra touches you can take peoples breath away. Of course
budget will predict all but here are some ideas that we have provided for our clients before.
Mood lighting around the room.
Casino themed balloons around room.
Large Printed Playing Cards.
Life sized props.
Vegas theme backdrops.
Pipe and drape around the room.
Ice sculpture done in Casino style.
Specially printed playing cards.
Casino themed confetti for tables.
Casino themed plates and glasses.
Themed Casino Fun Money.
Casino Party Games
Blackjack and Roulette are the obvious choices as everyone knows them and they are very
easy to learn even if your guests have no clue how to play. This is the job of the Emcee and
croupiers to teach your guests. However adding poker tables can be a fun way to include
even more guests in the fun. Texas Hold’em has become a very popular game and its very
straightforward to run a small poker tournament at the same time as the fun Casino. There
are a huge numbers of players out there that would love to try their skills against their
colleagues! For every 100 guests I like to add 1poker table and dealer. More than this and
you can change the room atmosphere as poker tournaments involved players sitting at the
table until they are knocked out.
These are just a few ideas to help you on your way to organising the perfect Casino Party.
There are lots more options available to you in this type of theme so if you would like to
