Casino Night parties are those parties where there is a fake or mock casino at your party. The idea being you get a set amount of fake money that you can gamble with for the evening. The casino usually has some sort of prize for the best gambler or a ticket system for all gamblers. Here are a few general ideas for your casino night party.
Casino Games - Casino games are the basis of which the party is run. The general principal for a casino party theme is you should have enough spaces at the casino games for 60-80% of your guests to play at one time. Not all guests will be playing at the same time so you do not need full capacity and if there is a waiting list to get on a table it just gets more exciting (like a real casino). Some games to consider including are blackjack, roulette, craps, slot machines and even war!
Decorations - You will want to be sure that you have enough decorations to change your venue from a hall or house into a casino. These decorations can range from ceiling decorations to table decorations. You should also consider getting a customized banner to fit the occasion.
Prizes - The final piece of the casino should be the prizes. The prizes do not have to be extravagant but you'd like them to be enough incentive that people are interested in winning one of the prizes and there before take the gambling more seriously. Some ideas for prizes are gift certificates, dvd's and other electronics.
Hopefully you'll be able to incorporate some of these ideas in your casino themed party.
