Some common questions answered.

Do we need a gaming licence for our Casino Event?

Is this actual gambling?

Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

Can we issue fun money to raise actual money for our charity or cause?

Yes. There are many different ways you can use a Fun Casino to raise money. See our section on Fund Raising under Casino Hire for ideas.

Is your equipment genuine casino equipment?

Yes. Our full size gaming tables are authentic to tables you will find used in the casinos. Our Roulette wheels are full size 80cm wheels.

Do you need electricity?

No. However, sometimes we do need some form of light to illuminate the gaming tables.In these circumstances we would just need a standard 13amp socket.

What is involved in setting up?

A typical two table event take approximately 30 minutes to set up. We aim to arrive an hour prior to the casino start time. We will work directly with the venue management to gain access and work around any other suppliers needs. If you want the casino set up early, this is possible but could incur a small additional charge.

Can I have a casino at home?

Yes. As long as you have the space, we have a package to suit all venues and budgets. All our tables can be broken down to give us access.

How many fun casino tables will I need?

We will discuss with you how many tables you need for the expected guest numbers. This can be made up of roulette, blackjack and poker tables or a mixture of all three.

Are there any venues we can't use?

As this is not officially gambling there are no restrictions, however you may want to mention what you are intending when discussing and booking a location.

Do I need to involve the venue?

Most venues are familiar with fun casino entertainment and will understand what is needed. We are happy to deal with venue management direct if they have any queries or specific questions.

Are Croupiers Included?

Yes. We include croupiers in all our fun casino hire and packages. We can provide croupiers for as long as you require, but the standard time is 3 hours. All will have worked in the casino industry and have many year’s experience of running the tables.

I’ve never been to a casino before. Will that matter?

Absolutely not, fun casinos are great entertainment for everyone, young and old regardless of their casino experience. Our experienced croupiers will teach and guide anyone who requires it, in a fun and relaxed way. You can also ask us to run some demonstration games before the event proper starts.

How much time do we get at the casino tables?

We usually suggest that you set the casino experience for 2 to 3 hours. You can have a break in between or have two one hour sessions. This will give all your guests a chance to experience the casino tables and play each game, if there is a choice. However, hiring times can be discussed to make sure we meet the requirements of your event.

How many vouchers for fun money should we issue?

We will talk through the event with you and then recommend how much is issued per person to ensure that everyone gets the chance to play. This recommendation is based on the number of guests and how many tables you have booked plus how many different games you want. You may also want to allow for top ups, especially at a wedding or party.

How do we calculate the winning player?

At a pre-determined time we will ask everyone to start returning their casino chips and any remaining fun money to the casino tables and we will calculate who has won who is the person with the most amount of money.

What prizes should we give to winners?

Its totally up to you and it depends on what you want from the night. We provide a bottle of bubbly for the winner. If it’s a fundraiser then as the hosts you can offer your own prizes, eg ranging from a bottle of whisky to a holiday!
