The Truth Behind Entertainment Casino Events
When it comes to casino parties, there are several restrictions put in place by the state of Texas to prevent illegal activity like gambling. Unfortunately, these regulations have lead many to believe that they cannot host casino-themed events for their non-profit, school organization, prom, or birthday party. This is not true! Besides this, there are several other misbeliefs about casino-themed events that have people worried about considering this option for their celebrations.
If you are also worried about the legitimacy of casino events, the experts at Best Houston Casino Parties have explained below three truths behind entertainment casino parties. Keep reading to find out what they are.
1. Casino parties are not illegal
Here’s the truth: gambling is illegal in the state of Texas. Gambling consists of an exchange of real money for chips or other considerations. But, casino entertainment parties utilize “play money” and chips given to participants without an equal exchange. Therefore, it’s not really gambling because you’re not really losing any money.
2. All items do not have to be purchased
Casino rental companies like Best Houston Casino Parties provide you more than just the equipment. We also offer a casino manager who will run your event, switch out the chips for raffle tickets, and manage the casino dealers. You’ll only need to provide three things: the location, your guests, and any prizes you want to give away, if any.
3. Everyone doesn’t need to know the game(s)
All of Best Houston Casino Parties’ dealers can explain how to play the casino games you choose. Casino parties always have attendees that have never been in a casino or have gambled, fortunately our casino dealers are available to help. The only thing the casino dealer can’t guarantee is if you’ll win when you go to a real casino!
Some important things to consider:
a. All 501(C), tax-exempt, not-for-profit organizations can successfully host a casino-themed charity fundraiser and also meet the requirements of the law.
b. Best Houston Casino Parties does not use any real money in its gaming. The entire Las Vegas-aspect of our casino games is solely for entertainment purposes.
c. Door-prizes and raffles can be the way to go! The law allows a qualified organization up to two raffle events per calendar year. Raffles are most effective for smaller groups of under one hundred guests. Clever prize ideas are gift cards, wine baskets, business services, venue memberships, sporting activities, and resort or hotel stays!
