Blackjack Knights was founded by Ronan Leonard in Melbourne in 2004. Prior to that he’d worked in casinos across Europe, and all around the world on luxury cruise liners. When one of the ships he was working on sank off the coast of South Africa though (check out the video footage here), Ronan decided it might be time to look into a career on dry land!
After settling in Melbourne he saw an opportunity to bring together the fun and excitement of the casinos he’d worked in for so many years with the city’s desire for great entertainment at events. He acquired his first tables from Crown Casino, and the Blackjack Knights fun casino experience was born!
Bringing the “best party ever” buzz
The concept proved to be a big hit! Over time word spread and the business grew – eventually expanding to Adelaide, then Brisbane and Perth too. Along the way we dropped the extra “K” and just became Blackjack Nights.
Now, more than 13 years later after our first event, we’ve helped over 3,500 customers and their guests have the time of their lives at parties all around the country. And do you know what? It never gets old!
Ronan still owns and operates the business, and he and his team of almost a hundred event staff are just as dedicated as ever to ensuring every event we work has that “best party ever” buzz in the room.
If that’s what you’re looking for at your next event, whether it’s a birthday party, corporate event, fundraiser, wedding, bucks/hens party, or just because, contact us today. We’ll make sure yours is a party that gets rave reviews!
