PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU REGISTER AND PAY ON FRIDAY AFTER 4PM YOUR NAMES WILL BE ON A LIST AT THE DOOR. YOU WILL NOT GET A CONFIRMATION EMAIL. If you are looking for something different to do on a Friday Night then look no further! We have put together a fantastic night of fun, socializing, learning, playing, eating and drinking at Big Deal Casino Academy, (The only licensed Casino School in New York State). You won’t find another social event like this in the city for this price anywhere! Whether you know how to play some of these games or have never stepped foot in a casino join us!What to expect:
We have rented out the event space for Big Deal Casino Academy exclusively for our members and friends to enjoy a casual night in a casino setting. They have a bar, food and 13 gaming tables. At the beginning of the night come to socialize, grab a drink or something to nibble on, play some of our icebreaker games and then head to one of the gaming tables. The Big Deal Academy instructors will be on hand to explain the games, walk you through how to play then let you actually play using real chips! Everyone attending that night will be given $2,000 in chips to play with (no cash value and no cash awarded) but those who wind up with the most chips at the end of the night will win prizes from NYSN. You can also go from one table to the next. There will be Poker, Craps, Baccarat, Roulette and Black Jack. If you get tired of playing there will be plenty of people to socialize with.
What is included: $35 includes($30 for VIP members): room rental, instructors and dealers and NYSN staff on hand to help you navigate the night and the games.
Not included: food and drinks may be purchased for reasonable prices
Dress code? Keep in neat (if you want to wear your James Bond outfit you can!)
Is this a real Casino? No, it is a school where they train people to work as dealers for Casinos. They are the only one in New York State. We have rented the space to use for a private party for our members and friends.
Do we play with real money? No, we give you $2,000 in chips that you can play with at any of the tables. There is no cash value and if you bust we’ll give you more!
Do I need to know how to play any of these games? NO, NO, NO, that is the whole point of the evening. Come, have a drink, socialize and you can hop from table to table and the dealer student/graduate will teach you how to play Craps, Poker, Roulette, Black Jack, Bacarrat & more.
If I know how to play already is it distracting to have them teaching? No, they are really good at having experience players enjoy themselves.
Describe the atmosphere? This is a large space on the 6th floor of an office building. They have it nicely decorated because they do private event there. There is a bar and they also have light appetizers for sale. When you arrive we will greet you and introduce you to others. We’ll figure out where you want to start and get you going! Throughout the night you will be able to switch tables, take a break at the bar, play our icebreaker games and win prizes!
Who is attending? The group will be 60-80 people, mostly 30’s and 40’s and some 50’s.
Can I pay at the door? They need to know how many staff to put on so we highly recommend it. If you wish to pay at the door you will need to make special arrangements with Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless you are paying for a charity casino night ($150$300) there is no where else in Manhattan where you would be able to have an experience like this. It is really one of the best social event that we have. It gets people really talking!!!
