Hiring a Fun Casino
Casino Table Hire – If you’re looking for party ideas – maybe for corporate events or a birthday party – then our Fun Casino could be the perfect fit for you! A casino theme can really add some flair and class to your event, no matter how big or small you’re looking to make your event.
What is a Fun Casino?
It’s casino hire with a difference – your guests don’t lose any money, and wherever your casino themed event is being hosted, we come to you!
A Fun Casino is a great way to bring the glamour and excitement of a night at a top Las Vegas casino directly to your event. Our professional team will bring the casino experience to you with a full mobile casino setup, entertaining your guests and adding a touch of class and excitement. Whether it’s a wedding reception, a fundraising event, corporate entertainment or a birthday party, if you want a casino theme, we can make it happen.
Unlike a trip to a real casino, fun casinos are a way to experience casino glamour and entertainment without the guests risking their own money. It can also be difficult, daunting or even inappropriate to invite guests to an event you’re hosting in a permanent casino; with a fun casino, the venue can be anywhere you choose, from a gazebo in your garden to a suite in a stadium.
We provide our fun casino services purely for entertainment. That means our only concern on the night is making sure everyone has fun!
Casino Table Hire What is it?
Giving your event a theme can really help, as an icebreaker and as a marketing tool. If you’re short on party ideas, casino nights make for a great setup. Private parties, corporate entertainment and fundraising events alike can all add a real red carpet touch with professional casino hire.
We have run casino nights to suit every audience and every pocket. Casino party hire services can come in many different shapes and sizes, but whatever it is you’re looking for, we can usually provide it!
Fun Casino Hire can often work extremely well in a corporate setting, where many clients also choose to have music, dancing and even a casino fancy dress theme; we look to bring some of the glamour of Monte Carlo to every event.
Fun casinos also work equally well in a more informal setting, like a family party or a wedding reception, where a carefully planned casino table hire service (plus extras like a photo booth) can turn good memories into great ones for the guests!
A good mobile casino service should always provide professional staff, proper planning and a great experience for both the organiser and the guests. Whether you plan to have your casino night in someone’s front room, or in a huge marquee on the lawn of a manor house, a fun casino will bring the thrill and excitement of casino play without your guests actually risking any of their own money.
Always remember: a fun casino is all about fun, not gambling!
Casino Party Hire – how does it work?
At the beginning of the night, “Fun Money” is handed out to each of your guests. This “Fun Money” is the currency used in the Fun Casino – no actual money changes hands and your guests won’t have to pay a penny to take part. Your attendees are then free to play as much or as little as they choose.
We find that even if some guests are a little nervous or unsure about stepping up to play at our casino tables, giving everybody a supply of free “Fun Money” encourages partygoers to get up and have a go at one of our games. As the night goes on, most people find themselves really getting into the spirit of things and enjoying the casino party!
If your guests don’t have a lot of experience with casino games, easy to play games like Blackjack and Roulette can be less daunting than card games like Texas hold ’em, although we pride ourselves on making each event accessible for everybody, especially with our friendly dealers helping to explain how each game works.
At the end of the night, we provide a prize for the top three players (including a bottle of bubbly), bringing your casino themed event to an exciting finish.

We have been providing top-class casino entertainment for events big and small across the Wiltshire region for more than twelve years now, and during that time we’ve put together more magical nights than we can count. We consider ourselves one of the top mobile casino services in the country, and we’re proud of our reputation. Our testimonials section is always bursting with comments from satisfied clients who are glad they chose Fun Casino Fun – so you don’t need to take our word for it, just have a look for yourself!
There are many reasons why so many of our customers come away satisfied with our fun casino hire service. We believe our attention to detail, and the fact that we’re a specialist company who really believe in going the extra mile to make your event special, set us apart from the competition. We have many clients who have used us on several occasions because they’ve been so delighted with the service we provide.
Our casino hire experience is fully professional. We can set up tables for casino favourites like blackjack and roulette, as well as card games like brag and poker. Our aim is to provide a full expert casino party hire service. Guests are always impressed when they see our mobile fun casino setup, which includes full sized tables and a professional croupier to really bring the Las Vegas touch – there are no novelty games or miniature roulette wheels when you choose Fun Casino Fun!
We have set up casino tables in venues of all sizes, from houses and back gardens to corporate events in marquees and stately homes. We can be as formal or informal as you choose. Our fun casino hire packages can give your party guests the full red carpet experience, a Las Vegas atmosphere complete with professional croupier, friendly dealers, full sized tables and expert event management. We can handle it all.
Or, if you’re looking for a unique twist for your charity fundraising event, our casino table hire can really liven things up. One of the most popular features of our casino night hire services is our photo booth, which is great for formal and informal events (and a great way to encourage your guests to dress up to match the casino theme!)
We have also looked after team building sessions at our fun casinos, where the competitive spirit often kicks in – and the chance to win a bottle of bubbly is always a welcome encouragement for everyone to get involved and step up for a game of roulette blackjack or poker!
Whatever your event, the main thing we always look for at Fun Casino Fun is that all of your guests enjoy themselves and have a great time, and that you come away happy too. There’s a reason we get so many repeat bookings – you can always trust us to provide a service that’s just right for your needs. We’re proud to have had so many happy customers over the years, and we want you to be just as delighted!
Some “casino style” events can be of poor quality. Our goal has always been to provide you, and your guests, with the perfect casino experience. We’ll roll out the red carpet – literally, if that’s what you want!
Our Roulette, Blackjack and card tables are all full-sized and well maintained, and to make sure you get the best out of them, we don’t just dump the tables at your event and drive away! We’ll make your night go with a swing by providing a professional croupier and friendly dealers to put your guests at ease, as well as giving a prize at the end of the evening for the top players.
Above all else, we pride ourselves on giving your guests a fun, professional experience they won’t forget.
We like to think that we bring a little piece of Nevada or Monte Carlo glamour to your event – so that when people think back to the night, they all remember how much fun they had, and what a great event you put on.
Our casino nights are always professionally run. We pride ourselves on our event management skills – we’ve put together fun casinos to meet all of our clients’ needs, no matter how big or small the venue or the budget.
We always make sure that the experience we provide is totally appropriate for the event you’re hosting. Our staff are always polite and professional, and we understand our clients need a casino hire solution that works for them, not a “one size fits all” approach. We know a team building exercise is different from a wedding reception or birthday party. We want you, and your guests, to come away happy and keen to do it again!
The casino hire services we create for you are totally hand-crafted to fit your needs, not the other way round. Some clients want us to become the focus of the night, where we work with you to arrange appropriate entertainment and provide extra services like our photo booth. Other clients want us as a classy accompaniment, to add a little extra flair to their corporate entertainment without overshadowing the organisers. Whatever you think you might need, at Fun Casino Fun we will always do our best to make your event perfect.
If you’re worried your event might be too big, or too small, for us to bring our casino expertise, please get in touch – chances are we’ll be able to build a package that’s right for you. In our twelve plus years of putting on top-class casino parties, there’s nothing we’ve not seen before.

While dealing with social media can be daunting sometimes, you’ll probably agree that it’s a necessary evil when it comes to planning an event. To connect with the largest amount of your potential audience within the shortest period of time, there’s no doubt that marketing your event through social media is a must. Not only does it help with increasing your guestlist, but it can also create a buzz online, which can help in future events or campaigns run by the business behind the event. Having more people interested in future promotions is never a bad thing, right?
However, promoting your event isn’t as easy as you might think. You can’t just post a link to the website promoting your event and hope things go viral, because in the vast majority of cases, that just isn’t going to happen. Instead, making sure your social media marketing plan is working in such a way that you receive the most amount of traction towards your event page as possible will really help the success of the event overall.
To make sure that you’re doing everything that you can to promote your event meaningfully on social media, here are a list of some of the things you should be doing.
Create a Hashtag… And Make Sure People Know What It Is!
A hashtag is a short, simple word or phrase that reminds people of your event and keeps it current in the world of social media. These are most popular on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, sites commonly used to share short thoughts about things people have enjoyed. Some people will look at what others are tweeting to find out more about something, which is why your hashtag may entice someone that hasn’t heard of your event to check it out! It’s basically free promotion whenever someone else tweets it, so you’d be crazy not to use it!
However, if nobody knows about the hashtag, there’s no point in having one. You might have decided that #marcosmondaymadness works perfectly and fits in with the theme of your event, but if people don’t know that you’ve decided this, the chances of anyone else using it are slim. Ours is #funcasinofun
But how am I supposed to do that if I am just one person, in charge of a large-scale event?
- Post it on your event website: If people are planning to attend your event, they’re likely to visit your website at some point to confirm the times, dates, or any other important information. By leaving your hashtag on the website, people might decide to use it to let others know they’re coming because they have been prompted to do so! Like this….funcasinofun.co.uk
- Leave it at the bottom of emails dedicated to the event: Is someone enquiring about the open times, or other specifics about the event? Make sure you’re leaving the hashtag at the bottom of your email to let them know that they can use it at any point before or during the event to show that they’re attending and/or are enjoying the event. Something as simple as leaving the hashtag after you sign out of your email will suffice.
- On social networks: Despite what you might think about social media, people are sheep, and will often follow what’s popular, or what they see already on their newsfeed. That way, by keeping your followers updated and using the hashtag, or letting them know the hashtag is the official hashtag of the event, you are keeping it current and active!
- On promotional content for your event: A lot of businesses utilise photo boards at their event, where their hashtag shows itself at the bottom so that people can be reminded, even after the event, of where they can post their photos or testimonials afterward. However, you could do this with pretty much any form of promotional merch!
Create an Events Page on Facebook
One way to keep people updated with the latest updates about your event is to create an events page on Facebook. For example, if you’re running a music festival, you can use this page to alert people of the headline acts as soon as they are confirmed. This is also a way of enticing new people to viewing your event, as Facebook will alert other friends to the things someone is planning to attend, which may encourage them to find out more about the event and think about going themselves. This is also a good way to gauge how many people will definitely be coming to your event so that you can plan accordingly, although you should give a few people either side as sometimes emergencies and other situations may prevent someone from attending after all.
Use Facebook and Instagram Ads to Market Your Event
When it comes to social media, Facebook and Instagram have the best conversion rates when it comes to their adverts. This means that you have the biggest chance of selling tickets to your event when posting ads on these platforms. You can also personalise these ads so that you exclude people who have already purchased tickets, if applicable, and anyone outside of your target audience who you feel wouldn’t benefit from attending your event. This also means that you can target people within your local area, so that you aren’t wasting your money on appealing to people who will be unable to attend your event anyway.
Pro tip: Use words and phrases that promote a sense of urgency. People are less likely to buy a ticket if they feel that they have more time to buy it, increasing the likelihood of them forgetting altogether. Phrases like ‘last chance’ and ‘ending soon’ will encourage potential buyers to click through and buy the tickets there and then.
Run a Giveaway for Free Tickets to Your Event
Is there anything people love more than being in with a chance to win free stuff? The truth is, we’re all human, and when we see the opportunity of getting something for nothing, we jump on the bandwagon. Even if it’s not something someone may have considered attending before, seeing an event offering tickets for free is enough to pipe people’s interests and have them searching for more information about an event.
This might not seem like a very productive way of promoting the event when you consider the costs of giving away a couple of tickets, however, this will be far outweighed by the number you bring in through the giveaway. People like those I mentioned above won’t be able to stop themselves from purchasing a ticket if they haven’t won the prize because you have already piped their interest in attending the event and they’re too excited to let paying for the event stop them.
Engage with People Attending Your Event
One of the best ways to create a buzz around an event is to reply to those who have already said they’re attending. Many people will use social media platforms to ask questions, and by answering them, you will seem friendly and approachable as a business overall. Even if you can only recommend that they get in contact with another department within the business the event is being completed by, you are giving them your time and attention, which may make them want to sing your praises to their friends, increasing recommendations to attend your event. This also gives you the opportunity to deal with complaints efficiently, as if you see people complaining, you can handle their complaints in a professional manner through private messages, which may prompt them to delete their complaint message once it has been dealt with. This helps as it destroys the negative image of your event before it has had the chance to succeed.
Here are our top ways of promoting your next event on social media. We hope you take this advice on board so that you can become successful with any future ventures!

Okay, so your corporate event party is a go and you officially have the green light to start planning the big event. But then again, there are always those fears of hosting lackluster corporate events which can even end up making starting the whole event planning process be a headache.
Well then here’s the good news, it’s time you start planning and choose an event theme for the special occasion. A good theme is what will set the tone for your corporate event. It is also from your chosen theme that you are going to base all of your planning decisions and the right theme will always attract the attendees and even build your business brand. Boring or tacky themes can also put the reputation of your company on the line as well.
There are three steps you can take to ensure you not only pick a professional, but a memorable event theme too.
Step one: Reviewing your goals
You need to, first, review and clarify all your goals, realize the purpose of the event and the reason for hosting it and start from there. Ensure you know what the event is about. All these “so what” reasons should be your guiding hand when it comes to identifying all the great ideas that you can tie the reasons to and brainstorm the perfect themes to fit all of them.
Step two: consider your audience
In as much as this may be one of the most obvious steps to take, some people may choose to ignore it which may be a devastating step. This is a vital step, especially when it comes to putting together the perfect guest list for the event. You definitely don’t want to have all your themes mixed up for the wrong events. Like having a theme best suited for your client’s events just won’t work with events where you have your prospects present.
Ensure you know all the attendees, their age range if the event is going to be family-based or just for adults only. You also need to know whether the attendees come from the same location or not.
Step three: Choose the perfect venue that will really compliment your theme
You don’t want to fail in planning the best possible venue for your corporate event as well. Planning the venue where the event will take place is just as important as planning and holding the event itself and will make it more memorable too. And with enough research, you might have found out that it is the traditional event themes that are still more popular than any of the others used by event planners.
It all depends on the venue you decide to choose to hold the event like providing the inspiration needed by your attendees.
But if you do your math just right and use the right themes for the right events, then you can expect to have one event to remember for a long time. It is, therefore, vital that you learn how you can control your venue and the perfect themes you can use for them to wow all of your corporate event attendees.
And in the case of a business, you should try and make sure that your brand forms part of the theme of the event that will act to inspire the attendees. You can try and blend your brand values and motions with the themes and see how it fits in all the scenarios.
So, next time you are tasked with event planning for your business, you should make attempts to ensure that the party reflects well on the business and blow the attendees away at the same time. Remember that the purpose of holding such an event is to raise the morale of your employees and knowing the right theme to use for the event should be a great way to start.
It’s also vital that you realize that holding the best and most memorable corporate event doesn’t mean expensive or fancy clothing or anything like that, but just to ensure that all your guests enjoy themselves and have a really good time. So, here are five tippers and tricks you can apply to your corporate event plans to ensure that you slay it even as you plan.
- Beach party
This venue has always proven to really kick events off and everybody just loves beach parties. What with the warm weather, cold drinks, and bright colors. Like everything just feels right and in place. Choose a place with just enough palm trees, rainbow-colored sea life, and pool toys. Just ensure you can create the perfect beach party setting and you are off to having a corporate event of the ages.
You can try to be unique about how you approach this theming style. You can use some futuristic styles like robots, space, and laser-like styling to the whole mix and even go OTT on the lighting. What if you even try glow furniture or plenty of neon lights or even blue lights as well? Just think about it for a second. It will be epic.
You can do one thing most people only always see on television; roll out the red carpet at the entrance and make it a night of elegance and fame for all the attendees. Bring out the inner-star of every guest. Don’t forget to put up a light up Hollywood sign too with a champagne tower and loads of red roses.
A circus theme is more refined for refined occasions where you hire aerialist performers and many more roaming characters to wow the guests. Have retro food stands at the event with ticket booth buffets which will definitely complete the theme. Imagine that you have drinks being poured by the champagne chandeliers. Everyone will be dazzled by the event itself and be talking about it for a long time.
The masquerade theme works for many different kinds of events and here, style is everything. You definitely don’t want to miss any of your guests get into the event without their oversized masquerade masks on plus two more masks for the evening event which is set to be on fire. Ensure that the venue is styled enough to at least try and look like an en grande masquerade.
Of course a Fun Casino can help to entertain your guests.
