How to Host an Unforgettable Casino Party

If you’re thinking of holding a casino party, you’ve landed in the right place. We’re going to unpack exactly what it takes to host the best casino themed party you could ever hope for!  There is actually a little more to it than first meets the eye, but if you use this as a blueprint your party will go off without a hitch. After all, why bring your guests to Vegas when you can bring Vegas to your guests? 

The First Element: Get the Games 
You don’t have to offer every casino game known to man to have a great casino party. In fact, unless they are avid gamblers, most guests probably won’t even know some of the more exotic games and game variants. If you aim to offer blackjack, roulette, poker, and possibly craps, this will be more than enough for most parties. Throw in a few novelty slot machines you will be taking things to a whole new level. We would like to point out that you need to be sure it is legal in your area if you intend to offer real money prizes or games. Do your homework and obtain a permit if necessary. Of course, you can skip all that by just making it a fun affair without any real money changing hands. Casino games are mad fun hence why so many people play them relentlessly, even online and on various sites at the same time (here you can check out some of the brands). Pick the main ones mentioned here and your guests will be having the time of their lives before you know it.

The Second Element: Arrange Hosts 
There’s no way you will be able to run all these casino games yourself. You will need hosts, and there are companies which offer professional live dealers for hire. Unless you can be at multiple tables at once and know all the rules like the back of your hand, it just isn’t possible to do without hosts. Keep in mind there are a large variety of ‘types’ of host, from professionals wearing pinstripe to beautiful girls and handsome guys wearing very little. It all depends on the type of party you are trying to throw! 

The Third Element: Set the Theme & Decorate 
Real casinos are typically glitzy, glamorous affairs. You won’t be able to replicate the ambiance of the Bellagio in Vegas, but you can bring in glitter, streamers, lights, and even something like a glittery disco ball if you want to go the extra mile. Choose your music carefully. You don’t want house or dance music, as this can be distracting. It’s best to set a mellow tone, with easy listening piano music or jazz. You want your guests to get into the mood, and the music is a crucial element. 

The Fourth Element: Dress Code 
You want your guests to feel like high rollers in Vegas, so go ahead and have them dress as such. 
While you don’t want to be too strict, ask men to wear small casual at the least and business attire if possible. Ask the ladies to dress up in their best. This really sets the tone of the party, and is something you can’t overlook. 

The Fifth Element: Drinks & Entertainment 
Cocktails and spirits are the preferred drinks at casinos, with a stiff something or other on the rocks being the drink of preference. Martinis, Bloody Marys, Mojitos, and champagne should all be available. You will also need to offer a selection of cold beers and soft drinks. 

Pay attention to these five keys and the door to an unforgettable casino party will unlock and swing open. Whether it’s for work, play, or a celebration, a casino themed party will be something everyone remembers for a long time to come.  Do you have any experience running casino parties?
