Here's a unique party concept that your gamer, poker, and casino-loving friends can all agree on: the e-gamers' casino night. By combining elements from the casino floor and web-based e-games, and taking stylistic cues from the dashing James Bond himself, you can host a truly memorable occasion that opens up genuine avenues for authentic social connections.
Turn Your Home Into A Casino Floor
Nothing says casino night like having an actual roulette and/or blackjack table —complete with pro dealers— on the premises. However, if you don't have the money to spend on such luxuries, there are many other ways to set the stage. A Joyful Riot lists several DIY options for giving your home a legit casino and e-gaming vibe, including slot-themed invites, poker-inspired balloons, and other party favors that can get your guests in the right mood. Don't be afraid to get creative and experiment. Simple elements like card suit-themed cakes, cleverly-named casino-themed cocktails, and personalized poker chips can be more than enough to create a fun atmosphere that encourages guests to join in with the festivities.
Use Online Casino Apps
It's not e-gamers' casino night if there aren't any digital slots or live virtual casino games. Hook up the online casino app or site of your choice on a big screen for maximum guest engagement —way cheaper than renting tables and pro dealers. But before you sign up for any site, check for licenses and/or safety guarantees. A TuxSlots review of Casino Joy details how the web-based provider's 1,300 different games are licensed by both the Malta Gaming Authority as well as the UK Gambling Commission, signifying that it's been tested and confirmed safe by two of the most well-respected digital gambling licensing organizations in the world. It might sound like too much effort to check each app for such details, but it can save you and your guests a world of trouble down the line. Make sure that any casino apps included in the festivities are certified secure and licensed accordingly. Although many regulatory bodies govern this industry, licenses issued via the Malta Gaming Authority usually indicate that the app is safe and at par with global digital security standards.
Dress the Part
How do you get guests to be in a gaming mood even before they arrive at your home? Set a dress code for guests to come to the party to they can dress like they're high rollers walking into a big-time casino. MPC Events' style guide for men offers plenty of ideas for dressing sharply. Just remember to tailor your dress code to the type of guests you've invited to the party. Is it a crowd that would appreciate the high-tier suit-and-tie requirements of the night, or are they laid-back e-gamers who would rather play around with a personalized take on your casino dress code? In other words, whatever your dress code is, just let the guests have their fun. Not only is dressing up for the part a great way to set the mood, creative guests can also use their fashion choices as talking points for when they're socializing and meeting new people. You can also supply guests with props such as top and bowler hats, flower and card accents for suit pockets, and other accessories to make the night's moments more Instagrammable.
