I thought casino's were illegal in Qld.  Are we breaking the law to have a casino party?
No.  Fun Casino events are a form of party entertainment and are perfectly legal because we do not play for ‘real’ money.  We provide you with ‘fun money’ that you give to your guests.  They exchange that for an equivalent amount of chips that can be used at any table.  At the close of the casino, players turn in their chips so we can do a "chip count". A trophy is awarded to the highest winner and they also of course, have bragging rights regarding their winnings. Fun casinos are run for entertainment purposes only, the important consideration being that there is no real money used when playing the casino games. We are paid a fixed fee for our services and your guests are attending a private function.

How long does a party last?
Most Wild Diamonds Fun Casino events run for 3 hours, they can run for any pre-determined time though. This should be outside the time allocated for dinner, awards, presentations, speaches, and other activities that might take place during your event.  Casino play normally ends 10-15 minutes before the designated ‘close’ time in order to allow time for players to cash in their chips and be awarded the trophy.

Do I get a refund if the party ends early?
No.  All of our events are based upon a 3 hour minimum. Times are agreed upon and an acceptance is signed before the event takes place.

What if I want to extend the party at the last minute?
Dependant on staff availability, you may request to extend your party for an additional hour only for 25% of the contract price. Any longer times would need to be pre-booked, and may need to include a short dealer break.

What games do you offer?
Wild Diamonds fun casino currently offers all of the popular casino games, i.e. Blackjack, Roulette, Money Wheel (sometimes called big wheel or Chocolate wheel) and Poker, usually in the form of Texas Hold’em Poker (other types of poker by prior negotiation).  

When do you set up and take down the equipment?
Wild Diamonds Fun Casino staff will coordinate set up time with you or your venue prior to the arrival of your guests. We will discreetly load out at the end of the casino event.

How much does it cost?
The cost is based upon a number of factors, including the number and type of tables that you have at your event, whether or not your event is longer than 3 hours, and whether or not it is located within our usual area or if regoinal how far we have to travel..  Please use our contact page to obtain a price indication, and when details are determined, Wild Diamonds Fun Casino can provide you with a price quote. Our rates are very competitive, but entertaining your guests is priceless!

Will you come to my house?  If so, does it cost extra?
We will come to your house.  There is no extra charge as long as you live within the Sunshine Coast / Brisbane / Gold Coast area or in between. 

Will you travel outside the Sunshine Coast / Brisbane area?
Yes, we can go anywhere, subject to staff availability. please call or email to discuss if we can look after your event.

How far in advance do I need to book my party? 
At Wild Diamonds Fun Casino, we will do our best to accommodate your needs no matter when you contact us.  We have a large supply of equipment and staff.  We can staff multiple events on the same night.  It is rare that we have to turn down events due to lack of resources, but obviously, the sooner you know the date of your event, the better it is to guarantee availability. Holiday periods, November / December and Friday and Saturday nights, are the most in demand and 3 to 6 months is not too early to guarantee availability. Don’t forget that many venues will also get booked early during the holiday seasons. 

What if my guests don’t know how to play?  Will they have fun at a casino party?
Yes.  Our professional, friendly dealers are skilled and more than willing to teach the games to your guests.  It’s a great time for people to learn and practice because “it’s not real money!”

Is there a minimum number of tables I must have?
No.  At Christmas time we are very busy & have a minimum of 2 tables in November and December for Fridays & Saturdays. Other days and times of year can be one table. Please note, the more tables at an event, the cheaper it is per table.

Where should I have my party?
You will need a space large enough to accommodate the number of tables and people that you are planning to host.  A party can be held at home or in an event centre or other venue. They can be held indoors or outdoors, but outdoor events need a backup plan in case of inclement weather. To accommodate table and players allow 3m x 2.5m for a Blackjack table, and 4m x 2.5m for a Roulette or Poker table. The Money Wheel is same size as a Blackjack table, but will neet to be out from the wall an extra 1.2 m to allow for the wheel behind the dealer.

How Many Tables Should I Have?
As a guide we would recommend 2 tables per 30 - 40 guests depending on whether there is additional entertainment occurring at the same time as the Fun Casino is operating and also the size of the venue. Remember that depending on your group, not everyone may want to play at the same time and that some will possibly only play for part of the table hire session, thus making way for other waiting players.
If you have any doubts about table numbers we would be happy to discuss this and offer our advice.

Can I just rent the equipment from you?
No.  Our equipment is designed to be used by qualified dealers with the correct skills. If somebody who is not an experienced croupier tries to use our tables they will not be able to maintain a smooth flowing game. Your guests will most likely become bored with the slowness and possibly agitated at the constant mistakes and lack of knowledge of how the real games are operated. Guests who see somebody behind tables with our logo, may mistakenly think that they are our staff and have the incorrect opinion that we are unskilled. We do however allow our guests to have a deal under our supervision during Fun casino events. Casino table hire prices are quoted including a dealer for 3 hours (longer if required)

Can we combine with other entertainment?
The Fun Casino works well with a meal, buffet, or just a few simple snacks but there are many other additional possibilities. For a more elaborate evening it could be combined with other entertainment such as a singer, a band, dancing, a cabaret, or a disco etc. We ask that you consult with us as loud bands and Karaoke will often drown out the dealers and make the games very hard to run properly.

How does a fundraiser work?
At Wild Diamonds Fun Casino, we are happy to help non profit groups raise money for their cause. We will do all in our power to maximize your fundraising efforts. Please follow link to our separate ‘Fundraising’ page for some ideas.

Do I need a licence to hold a fun casino?

No, If the event is a charity event, you need to be a registered charity. You can not make a personal gain from any funds raised, and the sole reason for attending is not to win a prize of any value (we supply a trophy).  If you are hiring our fun casino for a wedding, corporate event or party and it is not a fundraiser then it is simply a case of booking and paying for the event hire.

What do I need to supply?
Wild Diamonds Fun Casino supplies the luxury tables including delivery and set up, professional croupiers, ‘fun money’ and other agreed theming. Please provide 11 chairs if you have hired a Poker table, otherwise all you need to provide is your chosen venue, your guests, and a desire to have fun.

Can we play with real money?
Strictly, NO. It is illegal to play with real money.

Should I tip the dealers?
You may, but It is not customary to tip in Australia.  Our dealers are all friendly and outgoing and they work to ensure that your guests have an enjoyable casino experience.

What if we don't have a venue?
We can suggest a venue that may be suitable if we are given a brief outline of your requirements i.e. room size, type of food required (if any), location etc.

There are many venues that we have dealt with, of various sizes. We can offer you a venue with BYO or a cruise or just a local club or pub function room. If you give us an idea of location and number of guests we can then give you some options.
If you ae on the Sunshien Coast, the Aussie World Hotel (formerly Ettamogga Pub) has been re-vamped and offers a great venue for all size events.

It’s different, will it be something people will enjoy?
In our experience, a Wild Diamonds fun casino is an evening which will leave your guests talking for a long time. It’s authentic and glamorous, and the fact that people are not gambling with real money is what makes it so enjoyable. 
As this type of entertainment is interactive guests are able to get fully involved and it’s a great ice breaker. if you have separate groups of people from different departments or work areas, they will all play the games together and get to know each other. Casino Party entertainment can work well with other forms of entertainment such as a Photo booth.

Our next public event will be Friday 5th February 2016.

The public events like the one listed below are a great way to see what happens and how it all works for a minimal entrance fee (for charity). Take an opportunity to preview a Fun Casino event before you book, and to talk to our staff and ask questions. We do about 4-5 a year for various charity organisations and Community Groups.

From time to time we showcase our business at community events to show what we offer in a live situation.  This is a far better way of seeing how it all works than looking at pictures.  It is free for you to attend, so no obligation.
