5 Ways to Prepare for a Casino Bachelor Party

Bachelor parties have been a mainstay in popular culture for generations. They are a great way to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of a close friend as well as a great excuse for a big blow out, so it is no surprise that a lot of work goes into making them something really special for the groom-to-be. For people who want the classic pairing of a bachelor party in a casino, there is no shortage of great destinations. But whether you’re taking the gang to Vegas for the weekend or heading somewhere closer to home, you’ll need to plan for more than just travel arrangements. 

Get the Right Suit

There is more to buying a suit than just spending a lot of money. After all, an expensive suit that doesn’t fit well won’t impress anyone, so be sure to take the time to find one that will fit your body shape and is sized properly. If you’re unsure, going to a specialty store will pay dividends in the experience and expertise of the staff on site, who will know exactly how to find something that you’ll be proud to walk the casino floor in. For some extra flair, you can speak to the other members of the bachelor party to coordinate in colour or fabric so you can hit the town looking like a legit crew and really pop in those pictures.

Brush Up on Your Poker Skills

No matter what you’re planning to do at the bachelor party, it is likely that you or someone in the group will find themselves at a poker table before the night is up. Make sure that you’re familiar with a few different styles of play that will help you keep your hard-earned cash longer. There’s a lot to study when it comes to this game, because it’s played in different styles. But you can grasp the basics pretty quickly. As one beginners’ poker guide points out, the “fundamentals of better, bluffing, common terms, and poker hand rankings” apply across different varieties and styles of poker, and thus represent most of what you’ll want to get a firm handle on before your trip.

Check the Games Available at Your Destination

There is so much more going on in casinos than just poker, though, so be sure to look ahead of time to see if there are any games you’re interested in trying out. From blackjack to baccarat to craps, there are plenty of fun and exciting games to play with a group. Craps particularly has the possibility for some dramatic moments and big rewards, which is why its been featured in so many films over the years. Knowing what is available on site will save you time and let you know what to study up on ahead of time.

Book in at a Good Restaurant

No matter what your plans are once you and the crew arrive at the casino, you’re going to need to eat at some point. Starting the evening with a good meal at a nice restaurant will give everyone a chance to talk and share what they’re excited about as well as to share stories about the groom-to-be. For large groups, some venues will need to be booked out well in advance, so it is worth getting together with the best man and planning where you’d like to go.

Plan Your Cocktail Order in Advance

No one likes to wait behind someone indecisive at the bar, so have a plan for what you’d like to drink ahead of time. There are plenty of iconic drinks to choose from when planning to visit a casino, from  the classic martini to updated versions of classic combinations, so don’t be afraid to try something new while you’re out. Just don’t be that person who holds everyone up while they decide and you will be fine.
