Texas Hold.em Nights

Fire-Eater
 


Texas Hold'em Nights in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Scotland

Mobile Blackjack Table in Scotland

The Magic Agency is proud to announce the launch of it's latest service - Texas Hold'em Nights - as seen on TV!

Exciting and fun, a Texas Hold'em Poker Night is suitable for a fund-raising event or corporate entertainment.

What We Supply

We will supply experienced croupiers for all tables, a tournament manager, full size luxury tables, and professional standard equipment supplied with all tables.

How Does It Work?

A typical night is booked per table. Each table sits a maximum of 10 participants eg. a night with 35 people will require 4 tables. Nights requiring more than 2 tables must have a tournament director (manager).

Each person is given 2000 worth of casino chips at the start of the night. If the night is a fundraiser, then each participant will be charged an entry fee.

Let the Tournament Begin!

Then a Texas Hold'em poker tournament is played using standard Texas Hold'em rules (which will be supplied by us to the organiser before the night)with losing players being eliminated throughout the night. There will be a re-buy-in period allowed for fund raising nights.

Event organisers will supply a prize for the winning participant i.e. the person who wins all of the chips, or the person who has the most chips before the end of the allotted 3 hour time limit. The event organiser may wish to arrange up to 10 prizes for the top ten players.

Learn How To Play Texas Hold'em

If you would like to organise one of these exciting tounaments but you or your guests don't know how to play, then don't worry. We can give you a crash course on how to play Texas Hold'em before the tournament begins.

Give us a call, and we will be happy to answer any questions you have about our Texas Hold'em Nights or any of our top quality gambling events.

What other entertainment could you provide for a Texas Hold'em Night?

The Poker Night could be organised as part of a themed evening such as James Bond or a Las Vegas Casino. A James Bond evening may involve the guests in fancy dress such as tuxedos or bond 'baddies'.

Sean Connery Lookalike in Scotland

You could also hire our James Bond look-a-like to get the ladies swooning. This is a great photo opportunity for all your guests.

Rat Pack band in Scotland

A Rat Pack band (such as The Mellotones on our Jazz Band page) or Disco could be the finale for your evening.

Las Vegas Showgirl in Scotland

For a Las Vegas theme you could also hire our Las Vegas Showgirl to meet your guests, provide them with Fun Money, and escort them to the tables.

Elvis tribute artiste in Scotland

Still on a Las Vegas theme, you could also consider our fabulous Elvis Tribute to finish the evening in spectacular fashion.

Michael Breck the Magician

One of our superb Magicians could mix and mingle with the guests showing them amazing Gambling Magic or challenge them to Beat The Cheat.






The Law Pertaining to Casino Nights

From the Department for Culture Media & Sport Factsheet about Casino Nights.

"Casino nights may be held as part of an 'exempt entertainment', as laid down in section 15 of the Lotteries and Amusements Act 1976. A copy of the Act can be obtained from the www.hmso.gov.uk

Under Section 15, the promoters of an 'exempt entertainment' (i.e. a fete, dinner, dance, sporting event or bazaar) may provide as part of the entertainment any 'amusement with prizes', whether it is a lottery or gaming or both, provided the following  conditions are met:

  • That the whole proceeds of the entertainment, after deducting the expenses of the entertainment, shall be devoted to purposes other than private gain.
  • That the facilities for winning prizes at such amusements are not the only or substantial inducement to persons to attend the entertainment

Casino nights offered by commercial organisations

For many years, commercial organisations have offered to provide equipment and gaming staff to persons organising casino nights. These events are becoming more numerous and may not always fall within the law.

In many instances it is clear that, far from being incidental to the overall entertainment, it is intended to be the main if not the only attraction of the event and is, therefore, unlawful.

The legality of such gaming depends very much on individual circumstances and only the courts can interpret definitively whether an entertainment is lawful or not. If any doubt exists, a promoter should seek legal advice.

Other issues to consider

With bankers games, in the long term, the banker can expect to come out on top because he has the mathematical edge. Since these are games of chance, however, it is possible for the bank to lose heavily in the short term.

For that reason, licensed casinos are required to maintain substantial cash reserves to cover short term losses. Promoters should, therefore, consider structuring the games in such a way as to limit their downside potential.
