Texas Hold ‘Em
Texas Hold ‘Em is the fastest growing recreational game in the world. Over the last few years, poker websites on the Internet have grown by the thousand and TV has played host to some of the major poker events around the world.
Why is it so popular? It’s easy to pick up the basics and it’s the only game where the best hand doesn’t always win. Sometimes all you need is a good bluff and a strong Poker Face!
A brilliant Casino Table as part of your Corporate Event or Staff Party, as you would be able to pre-organise a tournament for people to enter and then whoever accumulates the most chips on the night is the winner. Incredibly good fun for Private Parties where our Croupier will run the table and leave you to concentrate on working out your opponents hand.
Players receive two (pocket) cards upon which they bet prior to a further three communal cards being shown (the flop), a further two communal cards: the turn and the river are displayed with rounds of betting. Players must make the best poker hand of 5 cards from the 5 communal cards and their own 2 pocket cards.
The 2006 James Bond Movie Casino Royal reinforces Texas Hold ‘Em as the gambler’s choice, replacing James Bond’s traditional game of choice, Baccarat, which was played in all previous James Bond movies. Fortunes were won and lost at Baccarat. Today however, the highest stakes to be wagered in any casino game worldwide belong to those players at the Texas Hold ‘Em tables, who chance all in the game commonly known as the Aston Martin of Poker.
Casino and Fun Money
Our Casino Hire is available for all types of Event and Party with a wide choice of all the popular Casino Tables and Games.
When the party starts, guests are issued with a set amount of ‘Fun Money’. This can be personalised for your own event e.g. Bride and Groom, Corporate Branding or Event Theme.
The Fun Money is exchanged at the tables for chips, leaving your guests free to gamble the evening away. As the evening draws to a close the chips are cashed in and the amounts totalled up. Prizes can be awarded to the person winning the most Fun Money if you choose to do so.
Casinos are ideal for Charity and Fund-raising Events. In this case, one option is to sell tickets and allow guests to purchase Fun Money from a volunteer of the Charity or Fund-raiser as required. No real money can be exchanged at the tables and all profits must of course be donated to the charity.
