times! It is in your best interest to book with us early especially during the
prime party months.

No, a deposit and a signed contract is your assurance that your date, our equipment
and our dealers are committed to your event.
Can you supply a
Yes, in fact it is preferable that you utilize our DJ/MC as they are used to
the special needs of a casino party environment. Especially in handling
the close out of the gaming portion of your event.
Is this legal?
Rent A Casino puts on plenty of casino parties every year. As
a matter of fact, casino parties have been going on since 1945. All parties
are for entertainment purposes and games are not "banked". In other words, your
guests cannot play with real money. If your plan is to bank one or more games
at your casino party, then no, it wouldn't be legal.
Do I tip the dealers?
The dealers at your casino party are service people just like
waiters and bellhops. They provide a service for you just as they would in an
actual casino and tipping is generally based on the level of that service. Unlike
an actual casino, the chips have no cash value and therefore players cannot
use them to tip dealers. It becomes the responsibility of the host, just as
at a large dinner party at a restaurant, to tip the dealers. Tips in the amount
of $25-$50 per dealer are common. We donít like to impose a tip to our customers.
Some of our competition will put a gratuity on the bill and keep it for themselves.
This is rampant through the event industry. If you can, you should ask the company
you are hiring if you can tip the dealers directly.
Can I rent equipment without
Of Course! As a matter of fact, if you are conducting a fundraiser,
you canít hire professional dealers.
What if I want a longer
Our standard and holiday rates include dealers for 4 hours. For
most parties where you are raffling or auctioning prizes at the end, we find
this to be a sufficient amount of time. For the "hardcore" players you may want
to go longer: We charge 25% of initial per hour overtime.
What is your booking policy?
We require a 50% down payment (of the total party cost) to reserve
your date. The other 50% is paid when the party is finished
We have a 10% Cancellation fee
Do the party guests
need to be 21?
No, party guests can be of any age.
Can you provide
us with full party planning services?
Of course! We can provide you with everything you need to literally
WOW your guests, with very little effort on your part. Let us know what you
want, and we'll do the rest!

How does a casino party work?
The term "Casino Party" is used to describe an event, where people come together
to play games commonly found in casinos in Las Vegas, but do not actually wager
money or other things of value. A casino party may be held as a fund-raising
activity for a non-profit organization, or it may be a private celebration held
by an individual, group or employer. The major difference between the two is
that those who attend a fund-raising casino party are usually asked to make
a donation for admission to the event, whereas those who attend a private casino
party are usually simply invited to come and have fun. At either event, guests
arrive to find a variety of casino games available for their amusement. Guests
are usually given a fixed amount of play money or a Script Chip which is cashed
at the tables. The play money can be customized with your company logo, picture
of the CEO, etc., the Script Chip cannot be customized. Guests then take
their play money or Script Chip to their favorite game table in exchange for
value (ex: $25.00, $100.00 & $500.00 chips and try to win as much
as they can during the course of the evening. At the end of the evening, the
guests turn in their chips for raffle tickets. Prizes can be raffled off or
an auction can be held and guests can bid on prizes with their raffle tickets.
Or, each dealer can cash-in your guests and record the winning amounts of each
player where the top prize winners can be determined by the host and prizes
What are some ideas for prizes?
When choosing prizes for your event finding the right product for your guests
can be a challenge. Below you will find some ideas to help you. Consider the
following criteria when picking your prizes: The item should be of high
quality so that it reflects positively on your event. It should be something
that the majority of your guest would want. Itís brand name should be
recognizable in a positive way. Gift certificates can make great prizes. You
could offer restaurant certificates; specialty retail stores certificates, American
Express gift checks and the like. If you have a small dollar budget, things
like movie passes, lottery tickets, Blockbuster video rentals and car washes
can make good prizes. The latest electronic equipment makes great prizes. Todayís
hot products in electronics are: iPods, MP3 Players, Digital Cameras, DVD Players;
Digital cameras; Video Game units (Xbox); Electronic Organizers (Palm Pilot
How many gaming tables will
I need for my event?
Please refer to the Suggested packages section of our web site http://www.rentacasino.net/
When do you deliver, set up, breakdown and
remove your equipment?
We will work with you and the venue to determine the best time to setup. We
deliver and setup well before the start of your event so itís all ready when
your guests arrive. We remove our equipment when your event is over, NOT during
your event when your guests are still present.
Why is Rentacasino.net
usually cheaper than the competition?
We know were worth far more than we charge. Just look at the party
photoís on are web site. Our equipment is absolutely beautiful! In most cases
itís true, you do get what you pay for. In this particular scenario, when you
hire Rent A Casino for your casino party you will get twice the service for
in some cases half the price. You should definitely get a quote from Rent A
Are you guys an
entertainment company that sells 50 different products?
Nope! We are a casino theme party company ďthis is our specialtyĒ.
Why should I hire
you instead of an entertainment company that does 50 different things and stretches
themselves thin sometimes to the point were they might not even show up?
When you hire Rent A Casino for your party, we can assure you
that youíll have one of the owners of our company at your event making sure
that everything goes perfect. We donít send a couple of college kids out with
a truck full of equipment to run your event. This is what most of our competition
does, and itís just not the same as hiring Rent A Casino. Were intimate! When
youíve hired us you know us like friends.
Why doesnít everybody
hire Rent A Casino?
Goooood Question! Some people fall for a big sales pitch from
one of our out of state competitors. In some cases they just hire the first
company they talk to. In other cases, they hire a price. If you knew what we
know about our competition, you wouldnít hire anybody but Rent A Casino.
When I talk to
you on the phone your not very pushy, does this mean you donít want my business?
course we want your business. We just realize that most clients in our area are
laid back and donít like the NYC hustle, the "hard sell", that most of our
competition use to get your deposit ď.
