Testimonials

Heres what our customers are saying about us

“Thank you so much for everything – all I have heard is good things! Definitely helped make the night a success. You and your staff were very patient and friendly which definitely came as an advantage to those of us who have never played before, or even those who were a little worse for wear, especially the lady on the poker table. The only thing we’d want to consider for next time is more tables!”

“The casinos were excellent. We definitely want to do this again. Everyone at the party thoroughly enjoyed the party but the casino make the real difference. They were impressed with both croupiers and the lady croupier was especially good at explaining how to play the games. I have found everything about your company very professional from start to finish.
Thank you again for everything.

“I just wanted to get in touch following the event on Friday. The event was a success and I would like to thank you for your help in making it successful. The casino equipment really gave the event a unique twist and dean was brilliant. I will definitely be in contact again for future events.”

Bond themed Charity Event

“The night was a great success and everyone enjoyed themselves and I have been hearing great feedback since the event. The croupiers were fantastic and interacted very well with the guests, ensuring that the experience was a fun night for all. They are a great bunch of guys who are obviously very good at what they do and helped guest with lesser knowledge of the games when required. Everything was set up and running on time and have can think of no faults whatsoever. If anyone ever asks for a recommendation for a fun event, I’ll have no hesitation in recommending your company.”

“Hi Matt
Absolutely fantastic. Your girls were wonderful and took the time to explain and entertain the guests. They were especially kind to my friends mentally handicapped son who was keen to join in but didn’t know what to do. They got him involved and let him spin the wheel. He was so excited. The guests all said it was great entertainment and both tables were fully utilised all night. Great night again and thanks for providing. Will definitely recommend and hope to use you guys again for our next party.”
