Who doesn’t love a good themed party? Themed events not only get everyone in similar spirits, but they give people yet another reason to swing by your location. They also encourage full-on participation from guests, make decorating a breeze, and are a nice change of pace from the expected.
When it comes to passionate video slots players, themed events are a slam dunk. It’s a strategic way to get them in the door and promote your available gaming titles. Hopefully, this will entice patrons to download the free SlotDawg app and keep coming back to your location time and time again!
#1: Under the Sea
Several slot gaming titles have a nautical theme (Goldfish, Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania, Wild Mermaid, Treasures of Olympus), so it would only be fitting to throw an Under the Sea bash! It’s both relevant for promoting the games and something all patrons would find familiar and fun. Our Under the Sea party must-haves? Beachy music, drinks, appetizers, and decorations or party favors of your favorite oceanic creatures!
#2: Singles Parties
As bar and restaurant owners, you’ve probably heard every terrible pickup line in the book. Let’s give the single people what they really want: a chance to mingle. Deck out your establishment with games that involve teams of two: beer pong for 21 & overs, cornhole/bags (depending on what side of the Mason-Dixon line you grew up on), or even dart challenges. Many of these amenities are probably already in your location, so setting up will be a breeze! And, of course, patrons will be playing slot games, too! Single/taken individuals can be marked by a button or stamp. While singles are giving out their numbers, you can give out koozies, shirts, and other prizes from your location.
#3: Holiday Parties
Taking advantage of holidays builds on existing hype and is a great way to get slots players in your doors! Far too often, people end up with nothing to do on major holiday weekends. Now’s your chance to give the people what they want: a good time with their best friends! The Fourth of July, Halloween, NYE, or even an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party can set you up for success.
#4: Favorite Sports Teams
Here in Chicago, we take our sports seriously. Crosstown rivalries fuel a passion for sports that can only be described as fanatical. So, why not show some love for superfans by throwing a Chicago sports-themed party?! Patrons can wear their favorite jerseys while watching the big game and trying their luck on darts, Pop-A-Shot, football target practice, and, of course, competitive slots games!
#5: Wild Wild West
Hook em’ and reel em’ in with a Wild Wild West party! Cowboy hats, cowboy boots, country music, saloon-style food and drinks, and some “yee-haws” will set the tone for an awesome hootenanny. And, with Western-themed slot games like Raging Wild and Wild Wranglers, it’ll be easy for slot players to get in the spirit. You might even consider hiring a line dancing professional or live music entertainment to kick the dancing into high gear!
#5: Viva Las Vegas
Video slot games and Vegas seem to go hand in hand; a Vegas-themed party should do the trick! When we say Vegas, we mean elements of Vegas that you’d find exploring the strip: wedding chapels, vintage cars, the Rat Pack, Siegfried & Roy, Caesar’s Palace, and more! Roll out the red carpet and make guests feel welcome to try classic slot games, like Vegas Classic, Joker Poker, or Blackjack, featuring familiar playing card and horseshoe or cherry symbols. If you decide to roll the dice, we think it could pay off.
#6: Mardi Gras
New Orleans may be far away, but who says you can’t bring the fun of The Big Easy to Illinois? Make every Tuesday Fat Tuesday with Mardi Gras beads, masks, hats, boas, noisemakers, and jazz music! Serving up some traditional Creole cuisine, like gumbo or red beans and rice, is never a bad idea, either. Between eating and dancing, slots lovers can take a spin on the game The Big Easy (need we say more?). Top it off with a King Cake and you’ll be living large!
