In this post, we’ll go through some simple gambling event ideas that are a lot of fun, and that can be pulled off on a smaller budget.
Do you like the idea of a high-stakes poker or blackjack table? There are no glitzy machines or ringing bells, just a group of card players around the table. You can play for real money for the ultimate rush or use tokens instead.
This is a great way to create an event on a very small budget. Guests buy a seat at the table and have fun playing. Some simple snacks and some drinks are all that you need. Check out the movie Maverick for more inspiration.
