|We see many examples of our competitor's casino parties gone bad! Most of them seem to think that all there is to doing a casino party is setting up some nice
tables and putting un-trained dealers in penguins suits behind the tables. Experience and understanding of how to run a party is everything when you spend
thousands on your party.
Pretty tables and dealers do not translate to a successful or fun casino party. The mannequins at Nordstrom's are dressed to the T's too, but FUN and
entertaining their not!
We have many dealers that also work for our competitors, so we know their system well. They tell us good and bad about our competitors operation.
We have no problem laying the cards on the table...so to speak, and tell you exactly what you can expect from our compettitor's parties and what we provide
more at our parties.
Most of them do a pretty good job. None of them however, provide your guests the fun and interactive experience that we do. It's just that simple!
There is a reason why we are 2/3's sold out for our holiday party season by June of each year.
We have a passion for providing the most fun and successful parties in the business!
|We recently provided a 46 table casino party for a group of 865 at the Grand America Ballroom. The clients exact words were "You guys nailed it!"
The following week we did a secret shop on one of our competitor's...Empire Casino Events, also at the Grand America, at a much smaller party, and this is what our
secret shopper experienced. After each of their comments, we have stated the difference in our parties and what we provide instead.
1) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS-Manager of party showed up minutes before the party. Dealers were confused about the table they were to deal, chip values, and how it all worked.
New dealers not provided any training or orientation to the party.( We know this because one of our staff members worked as a dealer at this party!)
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-Manager is required to be on-site 30 minutes prior to the start of the party to meet the client and provide staff meeting on the specifics of
that party. Entire dealing staff is required to be on site 30 minutes early as well, should the client need to start earlier than the anticipated time. 2 days prior to your
party, all staff is provided with our EVENT SHEET that clarifies all details of that particular party. All staff has all details of the party prior to arrival at the party.
2) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS-Dealers were paid cash out of an open envelope full of money. No hiring process was done,and obviously no employee/employer taxes were paid.
We know this because they paid one of our dealers cash that worked for them at this party.
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-All staff are hired employees hired in Utah and reporting all income as required by Utah state laws. We have never paid any staff cash
money. It is obvious that when paying cash, you are not operating legally, and paying payroll taxes in Utah. The dealers cannot be considered independent contractors
in Utah and must be hired as employees. Just as we do. Paying staff in cash sends up all kinds of red flags!!!
3) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS-During the party, some tables ran out of chips and the players could not be paid out. At some point, in the middle of the party, a new denomination
was created during play to provide chips to pay the players. How confusing and unprofessional!
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-We never have run out of chips at any of our parties. We have over 50,000 chips in our inventory in 7 denominations ranging for
$10-$25,000. One player got hot and made over $1,000,000 at a party not long ago and was paid in a huge stack of $25K chips. How embarrassing to not be able to pay
out players by not having enough fake money on hand.
4) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS-Single deck blackjack dealt. A very slow game! Inexperienced dealers make it even slower. So much down time shuffling. Mediocre cards not even
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-We use a 4 or 6 deck dealer shoe to minimize dealer shuffling time and maximize player playing time. We deal 2-3 times as many hands at
our parties using the dealer shoe. About 25% of the time is wasted shuffling at a single deck table. More play time translates to more fun and more opportunity for
players to win!win!win!
5) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS- It appears that the casino party company decided to deal blackjack at a hold'em table. There was a hand written chalk board on the table that
explained this. They must not have enough blackjack tables, but obviously sold this to the client as a blackjack table. Blackjack dealt at a hold'em table. That's just weird and
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-We provide what we sell! We deliver what we promise!!! If you order a specific variety or size of table, you get that table. We would never
deal blackjack at a hold'em table unless players specifically requested the change.
6) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS-No table signs or chip value signs to help players out. Had to ask the dealer again and again for clarification on chip values.
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-This is an absolutely essential to the success of your casino party. Players cannot tell the denominations if not given aids at the tables to
help them. We provide both table signs and chip value cards at each table.
6) EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS-Wires and tape everywhere for LED lights that are not professionally installed. Basically just hung on the tables like xmas tree lights. Cords and
lights dangling everywhere.
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-We previously used lights on our tables, but pulled all our lights off our tables as we quickly realized this created a safety issue for guests
and staff alike with all the electrical wires, taping down of all those wires, and lights dangling everywhere. In many venues we simply could not light the tables due to
access of power in relation to the casino, or it created a hazard to do so. LED lights on portable casino tables is a bad idea! THINK SAFETY FIRST! Don't risk injury over
our competitor's lack of judgement.
7) EMPIRE CASINO PARTIES-Tables seemed small. Blackjack tables were sit down with only 5 or 6 chairs per table. As well, only the blackjack and poker tables have lights...not
the craps and roulette tables event though the website says all tables are lit.
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-Our tables are built larger to maximize player area. Our "Kid" sized blackjack tables is about as big as their full size adult blackjack table.
Count the players sitting at the tables on our website, then count theirs!!! It's not about the number of tables, but about how many you can comfortably play at your
8) EMPIRE CASINO PARTIES-Straight up casino odds played at craps. Minimal players winning as the casino odds do what they do for the house and help it win!!! Dealers lacked
experience and didn't understand the more complex bets at the tables. Not much excitement at this table.
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-We have simplified the odds and payouts at our craps tables so that players want to learn the game without having a math class! We are
not going to teach you the 175 bets that can be made, but instead teach you the basics of the game....6-10 of the most common bets by the end of the night. Just
enough so that you will feel comfortable in walking up to real table in a casino and understanding what your bets are going for. Because we have simplified the odds, it
makes it easy to learn the game. As well, the odds favor the players and as they win, they are more inclined to learn and play as their chip pile grows throughout the
9) EMPIRE CASINO PARTIES-Game "hint" cards for every game are provided for the players at all tables. Nice touch, but it seems that this is promoting gambling
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-We want to teach your guests that don't know, how to play the games with basic skills. We do however, make it quite clear, that we don't
use or payout real casino odds or payouts, and our games is entirely different than what you will experience or be paid at real casinos. That's the fun of it all, and
players learn the games a lot quicker and easier when they are winning like they do at our parties.
9) EMPIRE CASINO PARTIES-Slow and inconsistent cash out process as it seemed all the dealers were not in sync with table limits, payouts and cash out procedures at their
WASATCH CASINO PARTIES-Our experienced staff and easy payout system makes for a timely ending to your party that incorporates with a quick turnaround from
party to raffle time as the tables close. Our well defined system and experienced staff provides consistency in our casino so that all tables play and uniformly pay out.
We secret shop our competitors regularly,and this is not untypical of what we see! EMPIRE CASINO EVENTS obviously lacks the experience and knowledge to
provide a first class casino night.
Do you really want to spend your budget on a company that pays their staff in cash? Or operates their business like this?
Pretty tables and mannequin dressed dealers do not make for a fun and successful casino night. This is what you get when you go hire an inexperienced casino
party company for your event. They simply charge you more, and give you less!
