How to Host a Casino-Themed Night at Home

There are many ways you can bring the buzz of the classy casino lifestyle to you, whether that involves loading up your laptop and logging in to your favorite online casino, or hosting the party of the century and creating your very own gambling house, in the comfort of your very own home, we’re going to show you how you can do just that. 

Read on to find out more. 

Figure out your budget 

First, you’ll want to set your party’s budget, so you can get a realistic idea of what you can afford. However, we’re going to cover ideas for any budget, so don’t worry if you want to feel like a high roller and can’t quite fund it – that’s all the fun of hosting your own party! 

If you can afford to splurge, then you might want to hire a hall for your night, but if not, the comfort of your own house will be great – then at least the kitchen is on hand too! You and your guests don’t even have to play with real money, and could bet with sweets, or use the chips to figure out who can win the most – with the winner receiving a prize. 

Create a guest list

Next, create a guest list and send out invites. You could create a fancy group chat, buy some ready-made cards, or even get crafty and make some casino-inspired save-the-dates, to see which of your friends will be joining you in your very own, private casino. 

Themed decorations

Any themed party needs decorations! Why not see what sort of artwork you would commonly find in some of your favorite casinos and recreate this, or use dimmed or colored lighting to create atmosphere, and really transform your living room into a living casino. Don’t forget to make a playlist too! Perhaps some classic smooth jazz, or just a mixture of your favorite tunes to really set the scene. 

Food and drink

The thrill of the games can quite often make you peckish – and no party is complete without party food. So why not recreate some classy canapés, or provide a variety of chips, dips and snacks for you and your guests. Don’t forget the champagne! After all, not only will you be celebrating all being together, but at least one of you is going to win! 

The games 

The most crucial part of any casino party are the games that are on offer. You can easily hire Roulette and Blackjack tables, as well as setting up tables to play Poker. All you’ll need are enough chips and cards, and you could even hire dealers to make sure the night goes smoothly, and gameplay stays fair. If hiring professional dealers is a bit out of your price-range, though, then you could each take it in turns to act as the dealer, allowing you complete free rein over your casino and the chance to experience the games like never before!

You could even dedicate a section of the room to an online casino area, all chipping in on bets and sharing anything you might win. How about playing a live, themed game like Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt Live, or even trying your luck with some classic slot games like Rainbow Riches at Paddy Power’s Casino? This will allow your guests the chance to access a whole new world from the comfort of your own casino, whilst working as a team, against other online players, or transporting themselves back to the pubs and bars when fruit machines were all the craze! 


To play without spending a penny, you could start each player off with the same amount of chips at the start of the night. At the end of the night, see who has the most chips and offer them a prize. the prize could be anything from a few nights in a hotel, tickets to see a show, a bottle of bubbly, or a free takeaway. The best part of all this is that you get to decide! Of course, there is always the option to place bets with real money too, but the beauty of owning your own casino for a night is that you can be surrounded by your loved ones, and completely immersed in the casino experience, without having to spend any more money!
