How to Choose The Best Games


Need Help Deciding Which Games to Rent?

It is daunting to figure out all of these little questions when planning an event. If you don’t know where to start, please refer to our list of common questions related to deciding which games to choose, and hopefully you will get some guidance. If not, you can always come into our showroom to see them in person, or give us a call at 905-592-2032.


 

How to Choose The Best Games

This is a hard question, because it depends on:

  • The crowd
    • Think about who is coming, and what they would enjoy. Also think about how much they will be willing to spend, as games like Blackjack, Roulette and Poker require some more cash than a game like Bullseye. Some people are all about gambling at Casino Tables others just like the easy games that do not require much skill. Have a good mix.

 

  • The logistics of the night
    • Think about when you are serving food, and what other surprises you have planned for your guests and try to make the evening flow nicely. Make sure to create a schedule.

 

  • How long your event should last
    • We suggest that you continually bring out new games throughout the night to raise excitement and anticipation. Calculate how many hours you expect people to stay, how often you want to bring out more games, and you have got your number.

 

  • The number of guests
    • This is purely for illustration purposes and it is just a suggestion, but here are some good guidelines:
      • 50-100 people: 3-4 games
      • 100-200 people: 4-5 games
      • 200-300 people: 5-6 games
      • 300 or more: 6+ games
    • Note that the number of games suggested above, can include toonie toss and other smaller games, so by no means are we suggesting that you rent 6 games off of us,  Most people tend to rent 3-4 from us.

We have had people break even from their Stag & Doe (OUCH!) and we have had several people make just under $30,000.  The people who broke even (honestly maybe we have met 5 over the past 10 years) obviously did not plan this out too well, and obviously did not follow Jack of all Spades’ suggestions.  🙂  The ones that made over $20k, did well with pre selling tickets, perhaps offered a dinner so charged more for the tickets, and had some pretty big booze drinkers.  The games obviously contributed to their success but it was probably more of a booze fest from what we have heard from clients when your profits are that high.

We estimate the average to be somewhere between $2500 – $6000 in profit.  How much have the games contributed to that number?  Nobody has ever been able to tell us!  It is such a chaotic night with so many people helping at once that you cannot possibly break it down that finely unless you are a total control freak lol.

If you only end up making $100 off the games, just remember that you have provided your guests with entertainment, which kept them happier and there longer spending money on other things.

Once you have figure out how Many People Can Play at My Casino Games at Once, as well as What Percentage of my Guests will actually play during my Casino Night, you are well equipped to figure out how many Casino Tables to rent.

Blackjack is always the most popular, followed by Roulette, and then Crown & Anchor.  The other Casino Games are extremely popular as well, but if you are going to have multiples of games, you may want multiples of the first three mentioned here.

Here is a handy spreadsheet which will help you get started.  It is broken down by game, and by how many guests you expect to attend.  Then we took 60% of that number and came up with a breakdown of what you may want to consider renting. Of course, this is just a guideline – you know your people better and what they would enjoy playing.  If you still need help deciding on quantities, just ask!

We have tons of tips for you to consider, as there are many variables involved when trying to maximize your profits.  Your success depends on:

  • How well organized you are
  • Who you have chosen to run the games (pick fun outgoing people who are happy to help)
  • If your helpers are quick with counting
  • Where you set up your games (don’t pick dark places are in the back corner)
  • Average age group of your guests (young 20 year olds may not have as much disposable income as 40 year olds so will probably spend less.  And seniors typically do not drop hundreds while at these events either, as they are known to be more conservative spenders)
  • How many games you have (you don’t want too many or too little)
  • How much you are charging for your games (too high, and nobody will play)
  • What the prizes are if they win (make it worth their while)
  • What else you may be focusing on (entertainment, DJ. etc)
  • Number of people in attendance

So take these into consideration and have a good plan in place to avoid all of these, and maximize your profits!
