What is your booking policy?
Unlike most companies that require 50% deposit, we at Florida Casino Parties require only a 25% down payment (of the total party cost) to reserve your the tables and most importantly the dealers. The balance of 75% is paid when the party is finished by check or cash. If credit card payment is desired, just let us know 48 hours prior to the event and we will generate a secure link to our credit card processing company so that you may process the payment in the comfort of your home or office.

Are casino theme parties legal?
The most common question people ask when they hear about casino parties is, "Is this legal?"

The answer is YES. What makes it legal is that in spite of the appearance of a casino, there is no actual gambling going on. It's all make-believe, pretend, fantasy gambling. You can bet as much as you want, lose as much as you want and win as much as you want, and you walk away with the same amount of money you started with. That's because only play money is used, usually in the form of chips, that have no real monetary value. And even though most people will play the games just for the fun of playing (or the education and experience they can gain), sometimes it makes the whole event more exciting if there is something to shoot for a reward for being "number one."

That's why most casino theme parties provide one or more non-cash prizes for the guests that earn the highest winnings (or chips) by the end of the event. Prizes can be as elaborate as a new car, a trip to Las Vegas, or a wide-screen television set. Or they can be as simple as a free lunch at a local restaurant or a plaque or other type of award. Guests can be any age to play.

How does a Casino Theme Party work?
The term "Casino Theme Party" is used to describe an event, where people come together to play games commonly found in casinos in Las Vegas, Monte Carlo or Atlantic City, but do not actually wager money or other things of value. A casino themed party may be held as a fund-raiser activity for a non-profit charity organization, Texas Hold-em Tournament or it may be a private celebration held by an individual, group or employer.

The major difference between the two is that those who attend a fund-raising casino party are usually asked to make a donation for admission to the event, whereas those who attend a private casino party are usually simply invited to come and have fun. At either event, guests arrive to find a variety of casino games available for their amusement (Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Poker or Texas Hold-em, Slot Machines and more). Guests are usually given a fixed amount of "Funny Money". This play money can be personalize with your company logo, picture of the CEO, Birthday person's picture, etc. Guests then take their play money to their favorite game table in exchange for chips and try to win as much as they can during the course of the evening. At the end of the evening, the guests turn in their chips for raffle tickets. Prizes can be raffled off or an auction can be held and guests can bid on prizes with their raffle tickets.

What are some ideas for prizes?
When choosing prizes for your event finding the right product for your guests can be a challenge. Below you will find some ideas to help you. Consider the following criteria when picking your prizes: § The item should be of high quality so that it reflects positively on your event. § It should be something that the majority of your guest would want. § It’s brand name should be recognizable in a positive way. Gift certificates can make great prizes. You could offer restaurant certificates, specialty retail stores certificates, American Express gift checks and the like. If you have a small dollar budget, things like movie passes, lottery tickets, Blockbuster video rentals and car washes can make good prizes. The latest electronic equipment make great prizes. Today’s hot products in electronics are: DVD Players; Digital cameras; Video Game units (Xbox); Electronic Organizers (Palm Pilot or Visor). If you don’t have the time to get the prizes.

How long can my guests play for?
We include 3 hours of playing time. This is usually more than adequate, especially if your event has other activities. We will work with you to determine the best schedule for the casino portion of your event. Setup and breakdown are not part of your 3 hours.

Please note that we can setup prior to your guest arriving at no extra cost and the dealers can show up 15 minutes prior to the casino event starting.

We recommend the event to start half an hour to an hour after your guest arriving. For example: If your invitations call for 7:00pm, we can setup no later than 6:30pm and the dealers would arrive at 7:45pm to start dealing at 8:00pm until 11:00pm.

Do we need to tip the dealers?

When do you deliver, set up, breakdown and remove your equipment?
We will work with you and the venue to determine the best time to setup. Usually we deliver and setup well before the start of your event so it’s all ready when your guests arrive. We remove our equipment upon termination of the casino event..
