Yes, Amherst Casino Events provides casino parties for entertainment purposes only: the gaming chips have no cash value, and cannot be purchased or redeemed for cash. Your guests can play for fun, prizes, or raffle tickets for a chance to earn prizes.
No, guests of all ages are welcome to participate, as the gaming chips have no cash value.
A good rule-of-thumb is to have one gaming space for every two guests. Our Blackjack, Roulette, and Poker tables have 7 gaming spaces each. The Craps table can accommodate 10 to 12 players. Minimum event size is 4 tables.
Absolutely. We will be happy to give you contact information for some of our previous clients, just contact us.
We are based in Williamsville, NY. We will accommodate your event request for a casino night party in Buffalo, WNY, and surrounding areas. If your event is outside of this area, please contact us. We may still be able to accommodate your event with a mileage surcharge.
We provide all the equipment necessary for a complete casino experience, including tables, casino chips, trays, cards, and dice. Our dealers are professionally dressed in tuxedo shirts with bow ties and name tags.
We do not provide chairs for our tables. In our experience, most of our events are held at locations that already have an ample supply of chairs for us to use. In addition, most of our tables can be set up for standing (cocktail) height or seated height.
You will be coordinating directly with Mike or Julie, the owners of Amherst Casino Events. One (or both) of us will work with you from the very beginning. In addition, we will be on-hand during your event acting as your Casino Floor Managers, making sure the games run smoothly and your guests are having fun. This allows you to relax and enjoy the party.
We do not typically offer equipment or table rental. We prefer that someone from our company be present during your event. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation.
No. We recommend using our dealers to complete the casino experience and give your guests the best experience possible. However, fundraising events sometimes use volunteer dealers to help reduce costs. If you use volunteers, we will help train them before the event on the basic dealing rules and protocols. However, please keep in mind that your volunteers must have some prior knowledge of the game they are dealing before we train them.
It is best to book your event with us as far out in advance as possible to insure we are available. As you might expect, Friday and Saturday evenings are the most popular. Holiday season weekend dates (in December and January) fill up early! Please contact us to discuss potential event dates.
A deposit of 20% is required to reserve us for your event. Cancellation less than thirty (30) days prior to the event date may not be refundable. Full amount of payment is expected the night of the event by cash or check.
Yes, we will accept credit cards for the deposit amount only (up to 20%). Payment of the remaining balance by cash or check is preferred.
Tipping our dealers is not required, but it is always greatly appreciated. All tips are split equally amongst the dealers.
