President & Owner
Q. Our function is being held in another city or state other than Columbus Ohio. Can All In Casino Events still provide all we need to do our event?
A. Yes, we travel all the time. Our truck is always packed and ready to go. Although we consider Ohio our playground and where we do most of our business, we also cover it’s surrounding states as well.
Q. Can we use our own volunteers to run the games at our event?

How It Works
Casino theme nights make great corporate mixers, private parties or fundraisers and we always take the time to talk with you or meet with you in person to discuss the best way to plan your specific event. After discussing your event with you and getting a feel for what you needs will be, we will then suggest the proper gaming and decorations you will need to host a successful event. We will then email you a quote with all the details for you to look over. A typical casino event for 125 to 150 guests consists of six Blackjack tables, a Casino War table, a Texas Hold’em Poker table, a Roulette table, a Craps table, a Beat the Dealer Dice table, a Wheel of Fortune, Slot Machines, a Cash Cage, plus all the Decorations and Accessories needed to give it that casino look and feel.
Our casinos NEVER use real money, your guests will start with a $10,000 voucher (shown above) which they can exchange at the gaming table of their choice for chips or casino money. At the end of the evening, they can go to any gaming table to exchange their casino money, vouchers, and markers for raffle tickets. These raffle tickets are then deposited into a Brass Drum or specific Baskets at the prize table. The raffle then follows.
Our goal at All In Casino Events is to keep you and your guests entertained, and to make your event as fun and exciting as possible, regardless of it’s size. We spare no detail in making the casino as authentic as possible. For details on what we provide, check out our Games, Decorations, and Extras sections from the menu above. Also, check out our sample schedule to see how it all comes together.
(based on a 8pm casino start)
Below is an example of how an All In Casino Event comes together!
1:00 – 5:00
We arrive at the host facility and set-up all games, equipment and decorations. The games are made ready by banking them with mock paper money and/or chips. The Cashier’s Cage is funded with enough paper money for your group and the casino is ready for action.
FREE TRAINING SESSION
If volunteers are provided – usually 1 hour before the casino starts
We completely train your volunteers to deal blackjack, run the wheel of fortune or work the cash cage. We provide the pit boss and all other dealers. Your volunteer dealers will have a great time as a “casino employees” during the evening!
DINNER / COCKTAIL HOUR
6:00 – 8:00
This time is often used for dinner, cocktails or special meetings. Many times they will request that one of our staff give a brief warm-up speech at the end of this session and distribute the money packets to the guest right at their tables.
PLAYING OF THE GAMES
8:00 – 10:00
It’s game time! The casino opens! Each guest collects his packet or packets of mock money at the cashier’s cage (if the money was not distributed at the end of the meal or during the warm-up session) and enters the casino area. Players then try their hand at different casino games throughout the evening.
10:00 – 10:30
Your guests will then exchange their money and vouchers at the cash cage or one of the gaming tables for raffle tickets.
DRAWING OR AUCTION
Drawing: Your guests gather around the prize table for an exciting drawing. This is an exciting ending to a great night. Your guests will use their raffle tickets to win prizes. You can use our brass drum or put a drawing box out for each prize. We can provide you with ideas and suggestions for your prize table.
Auction: All players cash out at the end of the event and receive a total cash marker. The guests use this marker to bid on prizes.
During the drawing or auction, we quietly break down all equipment. We leave the area where the casino event was held as we found it. We are especially careful to not mare or use nails to damage the wall coverings.
Game sponsorship can pay for your event
Ticket sales and sponsors are critical when trying to raise money for fundraisers or charities and usually a committee is formed to solicit donations or sponsorships from various business or private parties. If successful, you can completely cover your costs for the evening’s event and also raise thousands of dollars for your charity along the way. Other great ways to raise and save money for your event is to have a 50/50 drawing and a silent auction, and providing volunteers to deal at the various tables can make a huge difference with labor costs.
Many time corporate clients having events will invite their suppliers or business associates to attend the event and sponsor a gaming table at the event. The event might be a Christmas party, a sales meeting or an employee appreciation night. Frequently vendors who do business with the association’s membership will jump at the opportunity to gain valuable exposure via game sponsorship. These sponsors are usually given first the option of actually staffing their sponsored game as a volunteer dealer. We provide the training for free for any volunteers being used for the evening.
All sponsors are properly acknowledged during the casino night’s event. A large sign with the sponsor’s name on it should be placed at the entrance and a table tent with the sponsor’s name is placed on each sponsored game table. If flyers or brochures are printed for the evenings event, the sponsors should all be acknowledged in these printed items. The sponsor(s) should have their names announced on the P.A. system multiple times during the event.
