For the past three years, Las Vegas has worn the crown as the most popular travel destination for American adventurists in the United States. Glitzy shows, blackjack tables, lavish hotels and the promise of unforgettable night life are enough to lure in any traveler. However, in today’s busy world, finding the time and the funds to travel to Las Vegas to try your luck on the card tables can be extremely difficult or outright impossible.

So, what do you do if you can’t go to the Las Vegas casino? Bring the casino to you! Casino parties have become a national party theme phenomena. For hosts who want to divert from the ordinary and push for the extraordinary, throw a Las Vegas casino-themed party. When planning your next Florida casino night, don’t be a minimalist, do it right! Here are some important things to remember when planning your next casino party.

  • Staff your party with the real deal. Hire experienced dealers to run the tables. The last thing any Las Vegas casino enthusiast wants to deal with is an inexperienced or clueless dealer. While some guests may find it amusing to play dealer, the event will be much more authentic if you hire an event company or professional dealers.

  • Go big or go home. If you’re going to commit to the real Vegas experience at your Florida casino night, make sure you have all the appropriate equipment, such as craps tables and roulette wheels. Give your guests some options and try to offer a minimum of three or four different games to chose from.

  • Experiment with themes. To authenticate the experience, consider theming your party to match popular themed Las Vegas casinos. You have the option to establish one central theme or to divide your gambling rooms into separate theme zones. When choosing a theme, make sure to go all out with staff wardrobe and decor.

  • Help your community. A Florida casino night is a great way to raise money for a good cause. Partner with a local charity and help make a difference within your community. Charge admission and allot each guest a certain amount of gaming chips, or allow free entrance but make guests buy in to get their chips. Rather than taking home the big pot at the end of the night, the ultimate winner will get bragging rights and the knowledge that their winnings went to a good cause. You could also offer prizes for certain winners so they have something tangible to compete for.

  • Set a strict budget. With the amount of detail and glamour they bring, Florida casino parties are not cheap. Deciding what you are willing to spend while in the planning stages will save on unexpected rental bills. Prioritize what your party needs and what can be excluded.
