About your event

This is determined largely by the number of guests you’re expecting to come along to the event. We’ll customise a quote for you based on your expected guest numbers (with options to scale up or down if required, if your numbers aren’t set yet).

In general though, we recommend one table for about every 25-30 people you have attending. So if you’ve for 50 people coming, we’d recommend going with two tables.

We give everyone a $2000 note (which has been customised with an image of your choice) at the start of the night that they can use to exchange for chips at the tables.

Each game goes for seven hands or seven spins – at the end of that time, the croupiers take back all the chips and write down the scores of the biggest winners. The biggest winners throughout the night are tracked on the leader board, and are asked to come back at the end to play off in the grand final game.

At the end of each game, the players all get their $2000 note back too. They can use it again and again to play as many times as they like: effectively, they’ll never go broke in our casino!

Absolutely! For a fundraiser, we can change the format slightly so that each $2000 fun money note is good for just one game. If people want to play another game, they can make a real-money donation to you to get more fun money notes. Easy! Just please ensure that your event still complies with all regulations in your area.

Sure. We’ve very flexible, and we can design an event that’s tailor-made to your needs. In the past we’ve run events that are team-based, auction styled, feature free play, cumulative scores… if you’ve got something in mind, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you!

This is up to the weather as much as anything else – as long as the tables will be set up somewhere that is protected from the weather, and there’s a contingency plan for poor weather, then the answer is generally yes.

Keep in mind though that even on a “good” day, playing casino games outdoors can be problematic. Just a light breeze can blow cards away, for example, and lighting can be an issue for evening events too. We also need solid, level ground to set the tables up on.

If you’re keen on an outdoor-feeling event but are looking for a happy medium, we’ve run many successful events in the past in marquees (fully or partially enclosed), on terraces and in venues with indoor/outdoor spaces.

No. Sorry, but for legal (and various other) reasons all play at the tables is for fun money only!

Rest assured, even though it’s “play” money, we’re consistently told by our customers that the whole event is great fun for everyone concerned.

Yes. Many of our clients have a great deal of fun coming up with unique slogans and pictures to put on their funny money. All you have to do is provide us with the image you’d like on your funny money (for example: someone’s head, company logo, funny picture, etc.).

We take care of the rest, everything from preparing the artwork to printing. Best of all, it’s already included in your personalised casino night quote.

You and your guests will also get to keep the notes as a souvenir at the end of the night.

From private parties to large conferences, everyone’s needs are different. And that’s why we like to ask you multiple questions about your event before putting your quote together. We’ll tailor your package based on the number of guests, your location, budget, style of event and a range of other factors.

Free on-site consultations are also available if necessary. This allows us to do a venue walk-through to ensure that your exact requirements are understood and more importantly – met. Regardless of whether your event is a private function such as a birthday party or anniversary, or a corporate team building exercise, we can provide professional advice on how to put it all together.

Take advantage of our experience and expertise – we’ve done this thousands of times, even if you haven’t!

Each guest is given a “fun money” note at the start of the event. Players then show this note when they come to the table, where they’ll receive chips to play the games with – just like in a real casino!

We’re completely flexible on this point – as long as there’s room to set the tables up, and clear access for us to get them in, we can bring a fun casino to you at pretty much any venue. It could be a hotel, your own home, a convention centre, a hall, a bar, the options are almost limitless.

Over the years we’ve run fun casinos for happy clients in a whole range of venues: from the tops of Australia’s tallest buildings to boats, apartments, wineries in the country and more.

We have staff and tables based in Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide – so anywhere in those cities and their suburbs is a piece of cake. As are nearby areas such as Geelong, the Mornington Peninsula, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

Our staff love a good road trip too though! So we can serve pretty much any location in Victoria, anywhere between Hervey Bay and Byron Bay, the Barossa and most areas of SA between Adelaide and the Victoria border, and pretty much anywhere within three hours drive of Perth.

About Blackjack Nights

We use full-size casino tables with genuine accessories. The actual amount of space they take up varies by game, but including room for the players we suggest allowing the following:

Blackjack: 2m x 2m

Big wheel: 2.5m x 2m

Roulette / poker / craps: 3m x 2m

Our tables come apart for transport and are assembled inside the event space. All the individual pieces will fit through a standard-size door.

Good question! We adopted a similar colour scheme to the real Australian $20 note, so in some ways you can just think if it as the $20 note’s great-granddaddy.

Our expert gambleologists have also deduced that $2000 is a perfect amount to play seven hands or spins with – it gives cautious players enough to bet at least a few hundred on each hand, and the crazy gamblers enough to run up a big score if they want to be brave and bet it all on the first hand!

The first thing we’d note is that play is effectively unlimited, since everyone gets their note back and gets to play again at the end of each game. But the reason we recommend seven-hand games is it keeps the event moving and ensures everyone is able to participate.

Since each game is relatively short (about 10-15 minutes), we’re able to turn tables and players over fairly quickly and everyone gets to have multiple turns. People who only want to have a quick go are able to, and those who really want to get their gamble on can just play multiple games.

Using this format also helps us entertain more people with less tables – two tables is fine for 40 people, for example, because nobody has to wait very long for a game!

We only supply full-size genuine casino quality tables and associated equipment (beware of cheap imitations with trestle style table tops and cheap imported tables) as well as real croupiers at all our events. Our casino events are of the highest quality and we pride ourselves on delivering only the best.

Our director Ronan Leonard has over a decade of experience in the events industry, and even more working in casinos. This includes including working on luxury cruise liners and in several European casinos. Unlike some casino event of companies who have limited or no experience, we’ve run over 3,500 fun casino events. It’s this experience that allows us to GUARANTEE you’ll receive a professionally organised event that’s fun for everyone that attends.

Yes, we have public liability cover up to $20 million. While it’s not compulsory for companies to have this level of cover, we maintain it for your peace of mind. If you were to go with a supplier that doesn’t have cover, you could end up liable if there’s an issue on the night.

In short? Experience, reputation, our commitment to excellence and the GUARANTEE that you and your guess will have an amazing time.

We only use the best equipment, we only employ the very best staff, and we obsess over getting every detail of your event right. And we do that because the only events we want to work on are the ones where YOU get rave reviews from all your guests afterwards. That’s what makes this all worthwhile for us.

After3,500successful events all around the country, we think we’ve gotten pretty good at that! You can check out the testimonials from our previous clients to see what they thought.

If you search around you can find companies who might be a little cheaper. But we don’t think you’ll find any that are as dedicated as we are to ensuring that yours is the best party ever.
