How to Throw a Casino Style Party for Friends at Home

Published on

Home parties have become extremely popular lately. More and more people are realizing that it’s better to invite a couple of closest friends over to their homes, instead of going out. And to make those gatherings even more special, many people decide to throw a proper theme party. And for gambling fans, there is nothing like a good casino-themed party.

The gambling industry has certainly been on the rise in the past couple of years. The number of active players is growing, which means that now more than ever before, people are familiar with casino games and there is a great number of those who are very good players. However, not all of these players have had a chance to visit a retail casino, even once.

Many players around the world, who don’t live next to a land-based gambling venue, would like to have a proper casino experience, without having to travel miles and miles. Therefore, they are more than eager to attend a casino party, And even those who have the luxury of having a proper casino in their area, enjoy these parties because most of the guests are people that they know. This means that they can relax and just play their favorite casino games.

So, if you are thinking about throwing a casino party at home, below you can find tips that will help you organize the best casino party ever.

Invite Your Guests With Style

We live in the times of fast messaging platforms and group chats. And the easiest thing to do would be to invite your guests by texting them or via video call. However, by putting in some effort, you will create a certain level of exclusivity and luxury for your event. And isn’t that what casinos are all about? Think of a creative way to invite your friends, like making custom-made invitations that you can send via e-mail or regular mail.

Decoration Is The Key

One of the things that will make your casino night memorable is the decoration. You can look online for different ideas. You can even visit different Canadian online casino platforms that have plenty of available casino games that can serve as an inspiration. All of these online casinos have a certain theme or a color scheme that you can use. For example, the classic red, white, and black themes, will most likely remind the guests of a real casino. However, there are
many other themes that you can incorporate into your party. Think about Las Vegas, the roaring ‘20s, or even first-class casinos like Monte Carlo, and the ideas will come pouring in.

Think About Which Casino Games You Can Include

The most important part of your party will definitely be the casino games that you have prepared for your guests. For some games like poker and blackjack, all you need is a couple of tables and cards. But why stop there? You can even add slots to your party without spending too much money on renting or buying huge slot machines. All you need is an account with the fastest withdrawal online casino websites that offer a great variety of slots and other casino games. Your tablet or laptop can serve as a slot machine for anyone interested in trying their luck with this game. Moreover, if your budget allows it you can get a live dealer that will make the entire experience unforgettable.

But if you are organizing the party on a limited budget, then you can look online for different tips about how to become a professional dealer, and at least for a while, you can act as a live dealer for your guests.

Foods And Drinks Are A Must

Depending on your budget, the foods and drinks at your casino night can vary. If you want to keep your party budget-friendly, then you can set a table with some finger food and jello shots. Also, you can add tiny snack bowls at each table, filled with different snacks, that you can easily refill.

However, for a more luxurious event, you can add finger food like bruschettas, smoked salmon crisps, or even deviled eggs with pickled shrimp. Additionally, you can prepare a mini bar for different cocktails, or even hire a professional bartender to make them for you. Moreover, you can order casino-themed desserts, like cookies or small cakes in the shape of cards, dice, or even slot symbols. Lastly, you can even hire a waiter so that all of your guests have their
glasses filled and plates full at every moment.

Everyone Loves Background Music

The worst part of every party is when everyone goes silent for a moment, and the next person who speaks thinks that the entire room can hear them. In order to avoid such unpleasant situations, especially during a casino night, you should make sure to make a long playlist of some relaxing music. Jazz or lounge music is the most obvious choice. But if you and your friends have a particular genre of music that you like better, then feel free to go for it.

Conclusion

In the end, you should remember the golden rule of every party – have fun! If you miss out on all the fun, worrying if everything is perfect, the guests too will likely feel bored and eager to leave. But with your own positive energy, you will make this casino-night party into an event that will be remembered.

Royal Vegas

Royal Vegas is fabulous for slots and table games with over 700 games on offer and great live dealer options. It is perhaps their blackjack games that attract the most attention, with 35 variants and an excellent slick interface.

There are few casinos that have been around as long as Royal Vegas, which launched back in 2000, and the fact that they are still hugely popular goes some way to show you just how compelling and built for purpose their offering truly is.

Mansion Casino

Mansion is one of the longest-running players in the casino market, and as such, they are one of the most trustworthy of those available.
