Q. I thought gambling was illegal--will I get in trouble for hosting a party?
No! The only money exchanged at a party is the fees paid by the host to Classic Casino for use of its equipment and dealers. Players do not pay to play, nor will they win cash. Classic Casino is in the entertainment business, not the gambling business! For more information contact the Wisconsin Office on Charitable Gaming--they are very nice and helpful. It is the organization’s responsibility to determine the need for, and maintain possession of, raffle or other licenses.
Q. Some of my guests don't have much experience with classic casino games--will they still enjoy this type of party?
Yes! We find that most guests do NOT know how to play the games, so our dealers are trained to work with players of all levels. They are more than happy to explain the rules of the game and offer help along the way.
Q. Can the dealers entertain the children that come to my party?
For the enjoyment of all players, Classic Casino strongly discourages those under the age of 13 from actively participating in casino play.
Q. How many tables do I need for my party?
For small, intimate gatherings, tables should seat close to 100% of your guests. Larger parties, when the games are one of many fun opportunities offered, should have a much lower percentage. In both instances, our consultants will be happy to discuss your specific needs and desires and offer suggestions to make your party truly distinct.
Q. How much space to I need for each table?
Please see our Equipment & Tables page for pictures of each table and estimated size requirements.
Q. What does a price quote include?
Delivery, set-up, all equipment and chips, Classic Cash vouchers, two and a half hours with professional dealers, and removal of equipment.
Q. What are the host requirements for an event?
Chairs for blackjack and pokers tables. Craps tables require a table to set on. Slot machines require a sturdy table and power source.
Q. How do I book an event?
Once the details have been worked out, a signed contract and 50% non-refundable deposit is required to hold a party date. The remaining balance must be paid within seven days of the event for up to two and a half hours of Classic Casino's services. Payment can be made via cash or check--credit cards are accepted only via PayPal.
Q. What about tipping the dealers?
Gratuity is appreciated, but not expected. Tips can be given directly to dealers at the event, or included with payment and then distributed by Classic Casino.
Q. What if I need to change my number of tables or cancel my event?
The number of tables needed can be dropped without penalty until one month before the event. In the case of a cancellation, deposits will not be returned. Our dealers rely on these gigs for income and we strive to be fair to their schedules while still being flexible for our clients. If additional tables are needed with less than a month's notice, we will do our best to secure more dealers, but the closer to the event date, the more difficult that becomes.
Q. Can I come see one of your parties in action?
We will gladly let you know if there is an event open to the public in your area that you can attend. However, we will not invite potential clients to any private events. You are also welcome to view hundreds of pictures on our facebook page.
