Choosing the casino on your hen weekend
If you’re trying to decide on an evening activity for your hen weekend and fancy something that combines music, drinking, food, live entertainment and a little excitement then you might want to consider the casino for your hen weekend. Even if you don’t want to have a flutter, most casinos in the UK offer an array of entertainment to keep you and your girls amused during the evening. Going to a casino can be a very sociable event which is what makes it popular for people celebrating like on a hen weekend. Read on for more information about going to the casino on your hen weekend.
What to expect
Most casinos will require registration before entering for the first time and photo ID is typically necessary.
Registration can only take a few moments and once you are in you are able to return as often as you like. Once inside you can take some time to familiarise yourself with the layout as all casinos will be set out slightly differently. There may be more than one room and even set over different floors depending on the size of the venue. If you are at a larger casino you can expect to find a bar, games tables with the various casino games set up, slot machines, perhaps a restaurant and even an entertainment room for live shows. It can be worth doing a little research with the casino before you go and seeing if there are any shows on or live music which you think the girls on your hen weekend would enjoy.
What to do at a casino
There is much more to do on your hen weekend at a casino than just to have a gamble. You and your girls could book in for an evening meal whilst being entertained by live music. It’s a great way to catch up with your friends and have a laugh over a few drinks whilst the hustle and bustle of the casino occurs around you. The main attraction is obviously the casino games and the machines. If you’ve never played casino games before, most casino staff are more than happy to explain the rules of the games.
The types of casino games:
The two most common casino games you will see in UK casinos will be Roulette and Blackjack. Roulette has a table with printed numbers on from 0 to 36 and a wheel at the top end of the table with the same numbers on. Apart from 0, all the numbers are also split into black and red. You can place bets on the numbers on the table and then after the final bets have been placed, the dealer, who works at the casino will release the ball into the spinning wheel and you wait to see on what number it lands on. If it lands on a number or a colour that you have put a bet on, you will win money back. Blackjack is a card game where you play against the dealer. You are dealt two cards and the aim of the game is to get as close or to 21 without going over it. If you are closer to 21 than the dealer then you win and will win money back. There are more detailed rules about both games that you will be able to find out from the casino.
