Throwing A Macau Inspired Casino Night

To make your casino party night memorable, why not drop the tired and common casino themes and embrace something exotic. By basing your party on the gambling Mecca of Macau, you will offer your guest an unforgettable experience.

Let’s look at a few handy guidelines to make your casino night a sure-fire success and to see all your guest have a outstanding evening of casino gaming and experiencing new cultures.

Picking The Games

Having the right games at a Macau themed party is naturally essential. As host you have one of two difficult choices, either you keep the games familiar so that everyone can play games right out the gate, or you can introduce some games more popular in Macau.

The downside to picking appropriate games is that if everyone aren’t familiar with the rules it may cause some issues. Games like Sic Bo, Fan Tan and Baccarat are classic Macau experiences and not too difficult or unfamiliar to people.

That said, if you go to Macau you won’t find any shortage of western casino games as they host all casino games, not just a handful of exclusively Asian games, so technically you can’t really go wrong with your game selection.

Using Casino Chips

This may be a no brainer but having casino chips is essential to getting the mood right for a casino themed party. If there is a China Town or Chinese shop near you check if they have Casino chips with authentic designs on them. These would do half the work for you in having your guests feel like they are at genuine Macau Casino.

It is also an excellent idea to offer some kind of prize for your friends for the player with the biggest chip stack. This can range from a trophy to gift card or even a donation to charity in their name. As long as you have something. It would help drive a great atmosphere amongst players and give you guys something to talk about and something for the winner to brag about.

Feeding Your Gamblers

Food is a tough one at a Macau themed Casino night. Here it is easier to decide if there are snacks before or after the games as keeping to an authentic and traditional Macau style menu can become a sticky affair.

You can opt to have some dry snacks on the tables during games or you can have a buffet style table and just ask your guest to stay away from the games. The most important thing to remember is to include enough cutlery and cleanup gear to keep your guest’s hands clean. It is definitely not as hassle free as playing roulette.

Setting The Atmosphere

While it is simple to find a music stream on YouTube that would perfectly suit the mood of a Macau Casino, getting the decorations right is a whole other matter. In general red, black, gold and white work great for a Macau themed Casino party. You want to go for elegance not gaudy so avoid Asian clichés that could ruin the mood.

If you aren’t great at interior designer, like me, then a quick Google search will help inspire you as to the various possibilities out there to capture a Macau vibe, no matter what your budget. Even though there is an Asian theme to the Macau casino party, it doesn’t mean you need to have dragons and paper lanterns as display elements.
