How to have a Budget Casino Party:
Wondering how to hold a casino party? It is really quite simple. All
you will need are games of chance, chips, prizes and committed students.
Contact Amerifun first at (316) 821-0202 for all your casino games rentals at
rates up to 50% off. We also offer low-cost economy games (cloths) for
rent for $10 ($5 for schools) or purchase at a cost of $20 ea.. We also offer Chip
Rentals to schools for the same same 50% off discount.
If you are looking for low-budget options, you will want to consider the
gaming felts (available in Blackjack, Craps and Roulette).
Number of Player Positions:
figure the number of students that you plan on attending and multiply by
50%. For corporate events, we typically multiply by 70% as the casino is
often the main attraction. For school purposes we recommend 50%
because you most-likely will want other entertainment on-hand such as inflatable
games, live acts or other interactive activities such as a money booth or
photographer. The answer is your desired number of player positions.
So if you are expecting 100 students, then a casino to serve 50 players is ideal.
This saves on budget even more!

A casino party is a
fabulous school fundraising idea.
Some tips for your
school fundraisers: Begin soliciting donations or prize donations from parents, sponsors
and contributors. Also recruit volunteers for help with decorations and
your casino event. You can legally request suggested donations to enter
(but cannot require).

on planning a school fundraisers please see our standard Fundraiser
you are using gaming cloths, line up some 4-6' banquet tables. Staple or
duct tape the edges of the cloths to the underside of the tables to prevent
slippage. We do offer Blackjack, Craps or Roulette cloths available for
rent for $10 ($5 for schools) or for purchase for $20 ea..
For roulette, we do offer wheels for rent. If you prefer
not to rent a wheel you can purchase a low-cost plastic wheel from a variety of
For craps, you will need some sort of table-top box for the dice
to bounce off of. If you prefer not to rent a craps table you can build or
construct your own box. The craps cloths are 36"X72" but the
size of the printing varies- make sure to have your craps cloth in-hand before
constructing a box. Allow a minimum of 4" all the way around
the printing (the wagers).
Here is a neat little set! Just tell us
that you want the "Novelty Casino Game Set"- reg. $40, sale
$20.. Has a 10" roulette wheel, 2 balls, 2 dice, rake, card deck, 60 poker chips and a 20" x 11" x 3" case. Case doubles as a black jack, roulette
or craps (can only play one at a time). Each game plays a maximum of six

will want to print some Fun Money. Sign on to your favorite image software
and create a quick, fun design. You can use teacher's or student's faces
on the bills or other characters.
You can fit four to six bills on a page. We recommend
black and white copies on colored paper to save on cost.
You want them to all feels like 'high-rollers'! We
recommend printing denominations of up to $100,000.. you will need them!!
Determine how much fun money that each guest will start with,
let's say $10,000. If you had 100 guests, you would need 1000 bills to
start, or about 20 pages. The evening-end redemption method that you use
will determine how much more money that you will need.
There are many redemption methods that you could use but we use
a Raffle, Auction, Gift Shop or Giveaway as prize methods.
If you are having an 'auction' or a 'gift shop' then you will
need lots more money, if you are having a 'raffle' or a 'giveaway' then you will
not need more money.
It is a good idea to have as much fun money on hand as 10X the
start amount per person for an auction or a gift shop, in varying
denominations. For example, if you have 100 people that start with $10,000
each ($1,000,000) then you should have about $10,000,000 in fun money.
Remember it is illegal to use any part of the design from US
Currency unless the design is smaller or larger. Click here

Decide on one
prize method only, don't confuse guests with two many different prize
methods. A good idea for additional prize methods is a series of prizes
followed by a single grand prize.
We use a Raffle, an Auction, a Gift Shop and a Giveaway and
provide our dealers with the prize tools for evening-end redemption right at the
table. This is a good practice to keep the cashier lines to a minimum.

you need chips only for your own tables, we offer premium gaming cheque (chips)
rentals to schools for $37.50 per 1000 (delivery included).
If you rent at least one game from us (chips included with our
game rentals), the cost is or $25 per 1000 chips for your own games.
If you wish to purchase your own chips there are many available
sources. Plan on needing 300-500 chips for each blackjack table and the
like. A minimum of 500 chips will be needed for the craps and roulette (or
as many as 1000 or more). Look for three to five different colors. If
you are following our example from above and are planning on starting each
player with $10,000, then you will want to designate the colors as $25, 100,
$500, $1000 & $5000 (don't bother with low denomination chips).
For a great really low cost idea, try your local Dollar Tree
Store for some great economical chips, they have them for $1 for 80 - this is the lowest priced
chip we've seen (with maybe the exception of those red/white/blue plastic interlocking ones that you
remember from your childhood around the kitchen table!).
We have some great suppliers. Ask about good quality
economy chips for sale for as low as 7cents each!
recommend hosting a casino for 3 hours with prizes afterwards unless you are
having an all-night event.
For a prime-time event, advertise your event from 7-10 or
8-11pm. Instruct your dealers to begin counting down their players at
around 10 minutes till finish time.
Go right into prizes after the gaming ends.
If you are having an all-nighter make sure you keep your dealers
in plenty of breaks to keep them fresh! Another great idea to finish off
your all-nighter is to cook breakfast for the students a couple of hours before
end time or before dawn. If your event is at the school you probably have
a kitchen- turn those dealers into chefs! If your venue does not have a
kitchen, full-service catering always available to fit your schedule.
Please visit the menu for a look at breakfasts.
We hope the above article has been helpful and gives you some great ideas for your
next school casino night party project.
