Christmas is the time when you get a host of party invites and some people really go to town, organising themed nights to make the party season that little bit more special. In recent years, casino nights have become really popular and are often used as fundraisers for schools and other community groups.
If you’ve been invited to a casino nights but have never played casino games, then it’s a good idea to get some practice in before the night itself. That way, you’ll know what you’re doing when you first walk up to a roulette, craps or blackjack table. Not only will you feel more confident about placing bets and how the games work, but a bit of online gaming experience might help you place more strategic bets and turn a profit.
There are any number of different sites that have online roulette tables where you can get to grips with the game. Visit a dedicated casino games site like 32red or Gala casino if you want to be able to access a whole range of different casino classics all on one site. Many of the online sites offer a no-deposit bonus in return for a player registering their details, so you don’t even have to put your own money down to have some casino gaming practice online.
Alongside being able to play the games, the other thing you’ll need to think about is what you’re going to wear. The popularity of online and land-based casinos has also inspired a new trend in the form of ‘casino glam’. Of course, it depends on the individual occasion, but for most casino nights, the expectation will be for everyone to dress it up and look the part. There’s no greater excuse for some retro glamour than a casino night. Think of all those seventies’ casino scenes from the movies and go for it!
A fail-safe choice for any gal is a little black dress that you can then accessorise to be as glam as you want to be. If feather boas and lots of fake diamonds are your thing, pile them on. But you shouldn’t feel restricted to any particular style. Cocktail dresses and evening gowns will be just as appropriate as choosing a trouser suit, or if you’re going for the 70s look, then why not a jumpsuit? Don’t forget to take a glitzy clutch, so that you can stash your phone and your cash without looking like a bag lady!
If you’re unsure about the dress code, it’s always a good idea to check ahead, so that when you get there, you feel at ease and comfortable with your outfit that you’ve chosen. If you’re going with a friend, you could work out your outfits together. For men, of course, the choice is always a simple one – either a dark suit and tie, or a tux – but again, it’s best to check what other people are going to be wearing.
Whatever you settle on wearing, make sure you feel comfortable, so you can devote 100% of your attention to winning all those games!
