How far in advance do we need to book our event?
Rarely is there a deadline for any event. Some items are one-of-a-kind so can't be booked twice for the same time. For large staffed events, it can take a week or more to get a team together. Holidays and weekends require more lead time.
Can I see your equipment?
Yes, most equipment is kept in our warehouse in East Hanover, New Jersey. Please make an appointment to be sure we can take it off the shelves and have it set up for you.
Do you make custom props?
Yes, quite often clients request custom pieces that need to be made from scratch. Our award-winning fabrication department will work with you and your budget.
How can I have a casino fundraiser in New Jersey?
Typically your organization must be a 501(c)(3) group. You must have proper documentation from the State of NJ. We will send you guidelines and help you though the legal process. You can read more about the process on our Fundraisers page.
How long does it take to set up your equipment?
That depends on how much equipment is needed. We can set up a small casino or carnival in under a half hour and then spend half a day setting up props. We will always discuss this with you in advance to be sure the space is available and we are out of the way of any other vendors.
What does your staff wear?
Casino attire is white tuxedo shirt, bow tie, black vest and pants. Carnival attire includes red and white striped vests. Other events call for costumes or more formal wear and we have that too.
How many casino tables do I need?
We suggest 7 or 8 tables per 100 guests. If your event is larger or smaller the numbers should be adjusted proportionally. Other activities at the event can require more or fewer.
What is the contract process like?
Typically we work with a contract and a 25% deposit to hold the date, staff and equipment. The balance is due at the conclusion of the event. We accept check and all major credit cards.
Is my date available?
Reach us and let us know what you need. We can place your event on hold, no charge or obligation.
What do you do about rain/snow dates?
We do NOT charge extra for rain or snow dates. We cannot hold a second date, but if bad weather does prevent you from having your event we find a mutual date within the next six months and transfer your deposit to that date. No additional charge.
Do you charge for phone consultations, office meetings, floor plans, or proposals?
Do you travel out of the area?
Yes, we have in the past and certainly will for the right occasion or situation. Some items are easier than others for shipping vs. driving ourselves. Of course we can always hop on a plane for you!
