“Trust me.... These guys ARE the real deal, in more ways than one”. --Glenn

Our DJs specialize in providing music, announcements, and fun games like trivia, blackjack madness, name that tune, and other party enhancing diversions to that will allow your guests to win extra playing chips (unless your event is a fundraiser) and add to the overall excitement of the event.

When you hire a casino party with us, you get high quality equipment and very high quality dealers, many of whom have been casino professionals before relocating to the Atlanta area. Because we are gamers ourselves, we have gone to great effort to seek these individuals out, and understand that the quality of the dealers is crucial to the overall success of the event. We take great pride in presenting only the "cream of the crop" when it comes to dealers.

Everything we do revolves around casino parties and music. Period!

Our Secret - Improve your chances of Winning at Real Casinos!

If you're heading to Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Biloxi Ms, Cherokee NC, Murphy NC, or any other casinos in the near future, we'll also teach you how to increase your chances of winning at the casinos. Our professional dealers can teach you the best methods of winning games at ANY casino! They aren't just dealers, they are teachers too.

These are quotes from customers about past events:
“You and your team delivered a night of outstanding entertainment and as the event coordinator for our company's event, you made my role easy! Personally, I can't say enough great things about Will the dealer at the blackjack table. What a great teacher and entertainer. One of the guests raved about the 3 card poker dealer and others loved the roulette dealer. In summary, a fantastic time was had by all!!! Wish we could have played longer!” --Emily (Atlanta)
“EVERYONE said how this was the best house party they have ever been to. The guests have made multiple comments about how the dealers made it fun and how they actually learned how to play casino games that they never knew how to play. Craps was definitely one of those games that pretty much everyone learned how to play. Many calls telling me how they thought your service was top notch! Will was definitely a hit!” --Melissa (Chattanooga)
 
 

HOW IT WORKS

 

ATLANTA CASINO EVENTS - IT WORKS SO EASILY!

The process of securing our casino services begins with a SIMPLE phone call or email to us.

If you have a date, it's helpful, but not totally necessary. You may also fill out the inquire form on this web site and send that to us.

In our conversation or correspondence, we will want to know approximately how many guests you expect and about where the party will be. We need to know this in order to give you a reasonably accurate estimate. We will base our estimate on about 60% of the total number you expect to be in attendance. Once we have sent an estimate, those numbers are not written in stone. If your numbers change, we can change ours as well.

CASINO PACKAGES

Casino Packages are a great way to get started in determining the scope of what you might want or need for your event.  We have created some so you can get an idea of about how many tables you may need. Custom estimates are still our preference because they will be much more accurate, and will therefore suit your needs better.

THE INFORMATION WE NEED

If you make the decision to utilize our services, we will then need to know where the event will be, the total hours of the event, and the three hour time slot you want for the gaming, as well as how many guests you intend to have. Four hour time slots are available for an additional fee but the entire industry revolves around three hours, because that's about how long people want to play. We will ask for a small deposit in order to make our agreement valid.

THE DAY OF THE EVENT

When the day of the event comes, our arrival time will depend on the size of the casino you have purchased. We will always allow enough time to be up and out of the way before the first guests begin to arrive. We try to avoid letting the guests see us setting up, because this destroys the magic. We want them to walk in the door and gasp when they see the fun awaiting them. We don't want them to see guys in casual attire still setting up tables. You will be supplied with vouchers (play money) that will have a picture or logo if you want this and provide us with it. We will provide these custom vouchers for free,  and you can distribute them. When your guests are ready to play, they will take the vouchers to any dealer and trade them for chips with an arbitrary value assigned by us.

HOW IT ENDS

At the end of the evening, the guests will trade their chips back to the dealers for prize-drawing tickets, which are free. Then we will conduct a prize drawing giving away prizes provided by you. We can do that, or you can. If you want to do it with our assistance, that will be fine. It's your choice.

One important thing - most people want guests to cash in at the end of the evening in order to provide an incentive for them to stay all evening. We generally prefer that as well because cashing someone out during a game requires the dealer to suspend the gaming until the cash out is completed. However, If you wish to allow some of them to cash out early, it's important that you inform us of your intention so we can be sure the dealers have tickets on hand early.

This has been a general overview of what you can expect when you do business with us. We look forward to hearing from you and making your casino party night or fund raiser event a smashing success!

HOST INFO

 

WHY WE REALLY DO HAVE BETTER DEALERS

The motto of Atlanta Casino Events is “Our Dealers Make the Difference”. This is not just an empty but high-sounding phrase. We sincerely believe it to be true, and with good reason. It boils down to a difference in staffing methods. It seems many of the companies that serve the Atlanta area recruit dealers by sending a blanket email to all the dealers in their address book when they secure a commitment for an event, then hire the first responders. This method results in what I call “survival of the hungriest”, and for the customer, the dealers are not necessarily the best available, but simply the ones who were monitoring their email the closest. Of course this doesn’t mean there are no good dealers who answer these cattle calls, it simply means quality is not the principal criterion. 

Several of the companies do not staff their events at all, but hire a “Staffer”, who hires whoever they know, or are friends with. This so called “staffer” is always simply a dealer who has agreed to perform this chore for usually about $5.00 per dealer hired. This results in a circumstance wherein the person with whom you consulted and put your faith in has no idea who will actually be dealing at your party. I know for certain that sometimes, the customer doesn’t get a total roster of real dealers at all. They simply get a body standing behind the table who has had perhaps a thirty minute primer on the art of dealing right before the event. There is no guarantee that the “trainer” is a really knowledgeable professional dealer, either.

If you should encounter a company who advertises that their dealers are not contractors, but are full time employees, don’t fall for this one! Logic, combined with a little knowledge of how this business really works should tell you that absolutely NO casino company has full time dealers on staff. This is not economically feasible. They are taking a negative and trying to present it as a positive. What they really mean is they have cross-trained their sales people (commission only, of course) so they can enhance their income by also working the events they sell as dealers. This is not the worse practice imaginable, but to try to present it as meaning you somehow get better dealers is pretty disingenuous. If anything, the opposite is likely to be true.

All this stands in direct contrast with the way it’s done by Atlanta Casino Events! Our concept is to form a nucleus of highly professional dealers and use these dealers for all events. This method resembles the way pop bands operate. There is a nucleus of professionals who work together all the time and are truly bonded. They know each other well and are a team, not just a collection of individuals who are all working the same job.

Also, in this basic team of about 12 dealers, usually some are retired dealers from real casinos, and the remainder have been thoroughly trained by the professional casino dealers. We have settled on the Harrah’s style of dealing because one of our regulars involved in training was a dealer at Harrah’s for 10 years. Many of these dealers do not work with any other company by choice, citing (among other things) embarrassment regarding the quality of people they are sometimes required to work with. When a bigger job comes, the extra dealers we use to augment our regular staff are also the best dealers available. We almost never hire the first responder. The only exception to this might occur with out of town events when economics does not allow us to import all dealers from Atlanta, or last minute jobs during the holidays when almost every dealer in town is already working.

Rest assured, ACE will always strive to make sure the very best dealers available will be coming to your event! We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

 

USEFUL HOST INFO IF YOU ARE PLANNING A CASINO EVENT PARTY

How estimates work

The process of getting an estimate can be pretty tricky business, and there can be pitfalls that are worth discussing. We here at ACE have a pretty good idea what the industry standard is for pricing in the Atlanta area, so our estimates will be pretty much in line with others. Also, always remember an estimate is exactly what the name implies. It’s not a price written in stone, it should be thought of as a place for the negotiating to begin.

One thing some people do is confuse themselves by getting too many estimates. These are usually people shopping for the very lowest price they can find. This is not a good idea if the quality of your party matters to you. If you search hard enough, you will probably be able to eventually uncover a “bottom-feeder” who will be happy to provide you with a remarkably low price for a remarkably inferior product. Cheap tables that are not regularly maintained and inferior, poorly paid dealers can be expected with a vendor like this. A good rule of thumb is to avoid both extremes. Do not buy the top or bottom priced product. One is likely to not be very good, and the other is likely to be good, but overpriced. Not very good and overpriced in the same package is out there, too. I know where, but I can’t tell you.

Fund Raising Ideas

Casino Parties have become the entertainment of choice for fundraisers in the last few years.

There are many legal ways to raise money with a casino party. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Charge a per-plate fee to attend the event. If you do this, be sure to advertise the casino as being free for legal reasons. It is important to avoid setting up a situation where the guests must pay to play. Give everyone one free ticket for the prize drawing at the end so their ability to win a prize is not solely dependent on their performance at the games.
  • Sell sponsorships for the tables. The name of the sponsor can be placed in the table, and/or put on a name tag and worn by the dealer.
  • Have a silent auction with items donated by local merchants or friends. This is a time-tested device and can work quite well.
  • Have a bar and charge for drinks.
  • Create a “Photo Op” and charge a nominal fee for couples and/or groups to pose for photos. ACE can provide a nice one.
  • Sell T-shirts with your logo on it.  One of our dealers owns a T-shirt company and we can connect you if you are interested.
  • Sometimes, people offer free play money for a voluntary contribution of $20.00 or so. The contribution must be voluntary for legal reasons. Again, you want to avoid pay to play. We do not necessarily endorse this one, but many people do it.
  • Play “Half n’ Half”. This involves selling a playing card out of a deck for $5.00, then tearing it in half with the purchaser getting one half, and the other half going in a jar. When all 52 cards are sold, there is a drawing from the jar, and the winner with the matching half-card splits the pot with you. That’s $130.00 each.
  • Play “Heads or Tails” near the end of the evening. Ask your ACE representative how this works.
  • Play “Reverse Auction”. In this one, people buy in, then as names are called these people are eliminated from the game. At the end, the remaining name is the winner.
  • Hire “The Derby” by ACE and sell sponsorships for the horses in the race. People do not use real money to bet, nor do they have to pay to play. Again, ask your ACE representative for details. This is one of the hottest fundraising games available! If done properly, this can result in a couple thousand dollars in profit, and there are no questions about legality, at least here in Georgia!

Why Good Casino Event Dealers Matter

So, if you decide to have a casino party company for your event, what are the most important factors to consider? Well, professionalism and dependability are obviously at the top of the list. You must be comfortable that they will show up in a timely fashion and do a good, professional job when they get there. Those companies that have nice equipment will tout the quality of that equipment, and rightfully so, but frankly the quality of the dealers is even more important. Second rate dealers stationed at beautiful tables will not provide a really good, professional environment. It will look good, but when the gaming starts, the dealers become the most important factor. Dealers that are not up to snuff will not be able to properly teach gaming skills to the guests who are not experienced gamers, and even worse, they will be very unsatisfactory to those who already know their way around casino tables. Snorts of derision coming from your guests aimed at dealers who do not know what they are doing can be pretty embarrassing to the host of the event.

A good analogy would be hiring a band. Which seems like the best bet, a group of professional musicians with older, obviously well-used instruments, or a group of inexperienced musicians whose day jobs and/or parents have allowed them to own great gear that don’t really know how to play? Looked at it from that point of view, the answer is obvious. The best option would be great gear played by great musicians of course, but lacking great gear, great musicians will be the next choice . The same applies to a casino company. A group of great dealers working at really nice tables is definitely the preferred option.

For a really great event, shop for nice looking equipment, but don’t overlook the fact knowledgeable, professional dealers are in fact the crucial component of a truly successful evening. This is worth a discussion with your sales person at the casino company.

A Question we Receive All The Time - Do Blackjack Stools Matter?

In a casino, blackjack tables always have stools, and sometimes customers believe these are also necessary at a casino party. We do have the ability to provide stools upon request, up to 80 in fact, but we prefer not to. The reason is that casinos provide stools in order to make the players as comfortable as possible so they will play in the same position until they run out of money. This is not the goal at a casino party. Here, the best thing is for people to circulate, thereby eventually playing all the games, and also allowing table space for other guests.

Consider this; the usual formula for selecting the number of playing positions in relation to the number of guests is 50 to 60 percent. This means at a party with 100 guests, you will have 50 or 60 playing positions available, therefore between 50 and 40 people will not have a position available at a table at any given time, and if all the players park in a position and there is no circulation, these “orphans” will never get to play at all. Not the object of a party!

Another factor is if nearly everyone is sitting, the event resembles a meeting more than it does a party. I have personally observed this phenomenon many times. We do sometimes bring a few chairs in case there are elderly or pregnant guests expected, though.

A- We supply everything you need, including chips, professional dealers, delivery, set-up and tear-down, free custom vouchers (fun money) with your name, photo or logo on them, and tickets for the prize giveaway. All you are responsible for is the prizes, and for you and your guests to show up and have FUN!

A- We sometimes travel to Eastern Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and all of Georgia.


Q- Do you ever play with real money?

A- Absolutely not. If we were ever caught doing that, we would be out of business.


Q- How long do you usually keep the tables open?

A- Three hours is the industry standard. A fourth hour is possible for an additional fee, but most people realize the four hours is too long.

Q- You say you prefer not to provide blackjack stools. Why?

A- Mobile blackjack tables have to be smaller than casino tables for logistical reasons. They have to be easily movable. For this reason, you can only get 6 chairs at a table that has 7 playing positions. If you choose to have 6 blackjack tables, that's 42 positions at 7 positions per table, but if you have stools that limit you to 6 positions, you'll only get 36 positions with 6 tables. It's almost like losing a full table.

Q- Do you have a list of casino event packages?

A- Yes. Click here. However, we prefer to provide custom estimates because that is a vastly better way to do it. Call us at (770) 617-6942 and lets talk about your needs!
