Houston, Texas is the 4th largest city in the US behind New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Needless to say, there is a lot going on in and around the City of Houston. All of the professional sports are represented, night life, cultures, NASA, and the list goes on and on…except for casino gambling. As a matter of fact, Texas is one of the few states left in the union where casino gambling is still illegal, even on Native American lands.
It’s no wonder that the neighboring states of Louisiana and Oklahoma have a number of world-class casinos planted firmly along the borders. If you ever go to one of these establishments, make note of the license plates in the parking lot. Virtually every car in the lot is from Texas. There is just no telling how much revenue the state of Texas is losing from gaming dollars going outside of the state. The issue comes up time and again in the state legislature, but is always shot down by a strong Baptist presence within the governing body. Maybe some day they will learn from history and discover that you can’t legislate morality. Just take a look at what happened with Prohibition!
But being the Texans that we are, we are not going to let this get in the way of our fun. Houston casino rental companies are all the rage for providing the excitement and entertainment that a live casino has to offer, all within the law. Top of the line Houston casino rentals use state-of-the-art equipment and professionally trained dealers to provide Houstonians with the games and action that can otherwise only be obtained by traveling out of the state. When you hire a reputable casino rental company, you decide what you will be playing for. Is it a prize that goes out to the winner of the night? It could be gift certificates that go out to the Top-10 chip earners. As long as you are not paying out cash for chips at the end of the night, then you should be good-to-go.
We recently held a corporate casino party where they held little mini-tournaments throughout the night. Regardless of the game people were playing (i.e. Crap, Roulette, Black Jack, Poker, etc.), whoever earned the most chips in the next 15 minutes won a $100 gift certificate. It’s the dealer’s job to keep tabs of the action, but you can imagine the excitement and the HUGE BETS that were being placed!
Another example was a 30th birthday party that a loving wife surprised her husband with. They had about 35 guest in attendance in their home and the gaming tables were cranking. If someone ran out of chips, they had to take A SHOT to buy back into the game! It goes without saying that there were some pretty ‘happy’ people there before the night was over. At the end of the evening, the dealers counted up the chip and present a raffle ticket for each 100 chips redeemed so they could hold a drawing for door prizes.
Another common use of Houston casino rentals is for non-profit fund-raising events. The donors purchase chips to play at the casino tables and all of the money goes to a worthy cause. This is one of the most preferred themes currently for fund-raising because the donor is getting a level of entertainment proportionate to their donation, and the check books keep coming out for more as the night progresses!
That 2-hour drive to Lake Charles (if the traffic is good and you break a few speed limits along the way) might be good on occasion, but it’s always nicer when you know that you can bring the game to your front door whenever you want to. These are just a few of the reasons that Houston casino rentals are trending and will continue to trend as long as Texans are forced to take their money over the border. Hey Texas Legislature…Can anyone say ASTRODOME CASINO?
