Because guests aren't playing with real money, you might ask yourself, "How does this whole casino party thing work?" Here's what happens, in a nutshell. First, as your guests enter the party, our staff hands out the same amount of play money to everyone. Our "funny money" is in denominations of $500 bills, and we usually distribute two bills, or $1,000 total, to everyone in attendance.
Once the casino opens, guests can walk up to their favorite table and hand either $500 or the whole $1,000 to the dealer, who will in turn exchange this money for casino chips. Our casino chips are clearly marked with denominations that range from $25 to $10,000, and each denomination has a different color so guests can easily tell each one apart. Typically, once they hand in their funny money to the dealer, guests receive a combination of $25 chips and $100 chips to start. Because our smallest chips are $25 denominations, $25 usually serves as the minimum bet at most tables.
As the gaming time is drawing to a close, our dealers will announce the last hand, the last spin of the wheel, and the last throw of the dice. Guests will then be instructed to go back to their favorite table and turn in their casino chips. If you choose to have a raffle we'll provide raffle tickets free of charge, and our crew can handle all the logistics and even emcee the entire raffle for you.
