How does one raise money for their charity in the current Covid-19 environment, while staying home and keeping safe? Wild Bill’s has the perfect option for you: A Virtual Poker Tournament!
Wild Bill’s will create a Texas Hold’em Tournament specifically designed for your organization where only invited guests can play. As with our traditional Poker Tournaments, your charity keeps all the proceeds.
Traditionally, Casino Fundraisers are one of the only fundraising events where your guests will have a great time while donating money and leave saying “I can’t wait to do that again!” It is interactive, exciting, and fun! If you are looking for something different, refreshing and memorable for your annual gala, casino fundraisers are the perfect choice. A casino party is likely to bring out guests that may not come to traditional galas or auctions. It keeps people involved/engaged and having fun so they stay longer at the event, which tends to result in larger donations. In Oregon and Washington, Casino Nights are not played with real money, but for prizes. That means every dollar taken in by your organization is yours to keep!
No Real Gambling
Your guests will be spending real money to play with Casino “funny money”, called Scrip, which has no real value. Players will have the opportunity to win prizes (provided by your organization) based on their casino winnings. That way, all real money collected by your cashiers goes directly to your organization.

“Thank you SO MUCH for all your help with our event! We had a fun and successful auction and the casino was a HIT! The Casino Manager and dealers were fantastic and the whole thing was a home run.” ~Riverdale PTC
Raise Money for Your Cause
All you need to do is provide the “Three Ps”: The People, the Place, and the Prizes. We do everything else to make you More Money, have More Fun and More Excitement.
Wild Bill’s has produced hundreds of successful Casino Fundraising events since 1982 and provides a complete package of top quality gaming tables, supplies, friendly professional dealers and accessible support.
Your Profits Come from Three Areas
Your ticket sales should cover the cost of the complete event. We will teach you how to develop a Ticket program to sell to your members and their families and friends, as will as the public. Ticket pricing, as well as how much “Free” casino money comes with the ticket, will be discussed with recommendations.
The number of tickets sold will also help us to decide how many casino tables and dealers to provide for your event.
With the ticket sales covering the cost of the event, table sponsorships will be pure profit! You can sell table sponsorships for all of the gaming tables and we help you price them based on types of games. We also recommend benefits to offer to the sp0nsors and very to no cost to you.
Casino Scrip Purchases
With your event costs covered and profits in from table sponsorships, the next profit center is Casino Scrip Purchases. As guests run out of their initial “Free” casino scrip, you will have a cashiers table selling additional casino scrip. We provide a full package of Casino Scrip to sell along with table signage and a short training for your volunteer cashiers.
Both Oregon and Washington require casino fundraising events to be licensed. We will give you the information about licensing in each state and where to download the application.
