Want to show your friends a good time, but don't have a fortune to take them to a casino in Vegas? Then bring Las Vegas to your friends with a Casino Party. Casino parties are one of the most popular themes for both private parties and fund-raising events for conferences, conventions, charities and other organizations. As a result, there are dozens of vendors available now that rent genuine casino equipment, as well as the services of dealers and other staff. You can easily find a rental service to help stage your casino party through an Internet search.
When talking with your vendor about your party plans, be sure to have with you the dimensions of your party space. With this essential information, your rental service will be able to recommend the right type and mix of casino tables for your event. Usually one of the practices that make a casino party legal is to play for fun with phony money, similar to that used in a board game or available from a toy store. That way it's clear that you're not playing to win cold, hard cash, just to have a good time. Even a fund-raising event should have a way for players to contribute without real money being used.
The variety of games at a casino party is really up to the host, depending on the size of the venue and the number of guests expected. These days, however, one of the really popular games is Texas Hold 'Em poker. People love to watch these tournaments on TV, so give them an opportunity to test their skill.
You can really add excitement to your casino party if you choose a costume theme for the event. Invite your guests to dress up as cowboys and dance hall girls from the Old West, or gangsters at a Speakeasy from the Roaring Twenties. You might even have someone take instant photos of your costumed guests, so they take home pictures of all the fun.
