Casino Party- A Unique Fundraising Idea!

Benefits of having a casino party at your fundraiser

A Casino Fundraiser is a popular way for non-profit organizations to raise money. Having a casino night or poker night for a fundraising event can be fun because their guests are effortlessly entertained while benefiting their non-profit organization. Our casino night events have the look and feel of a real casino!

Every successful casino fundraiser has one thing in common – a good turnout. If people show up, they will spend money and your profits will follow. Allow us to help you promote your fundraiser with new fundraising ideas, free online advertising, and our group of local players looking to help out your cause.

How to plan a successful fundraising event:

  • Factor how much money you need to raise and how much a casino party will cost
  • Pick a venue and time.  Try and find a venue that will let you keep some of the alcohol sale revenue
  • An option to reduce cost is to use volunteers to deal casino party table games
  • Volunteers to take care to tasks such as cashier as our staff does not handle real money 
  • Sell pre-sale tickets to prospective guests
  • Get sponsorship from local business to offset the cost of the gaming tables.  Offer them free tickets to the casino night for sponsoring 
  • Obtain prize donations from local businesses, outside sales, real casinos, hotels, movies theaters ,sports teams and more
  • Advertise your casino night through local businesses
  • Use free internet tools such as Evite, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Eventbrite and other networks to help you get local support
  • Accept different methods of payments such as Paypal, Venmo, Cash App, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Credit Cards and more

How does a casino night fundraiser work?

As your guests check-in at the cashier, they will receive a set amount of casino fundraiser chips. We recommend a starting amount between $500 and $1000. Money is raised for your organization through the pre-sale tickets, purchases of additional chips, raffle tickets or food & beverages. 

Unlike Las Vegas, no real money is won as a result of gaming. Players become eligible to win prizes as casino night closes by exchanging their casino chips for raffle tickets. Prizes would need to be donated for several drawings at the end of the evening. A players chance to win a prize is limited by the number of raffle tickets they earned by playing the casino games. As an example: The dealers, managers, and cashiers can exchange $500.00 in chips for 1 raffle ticket.

Customer is respectable for all local and state laws and permits.
