Keeping busy in January

It’s no secret that January is a pretty quiet month in the events industry, but we’ve still found plenty to keep us busy over the past few weeks.

After enjoying our busiest month ever in December 2017, we’ve been able to relax a little and recharge our batteries while also preparing for the year ahead.

On the marketing side, you might have noticed some developments to our website. We implemented a new online booking tool at the end of 2017, which has proved hugely popular with staff and customers alike. Having trialled it for three months, we’re now using it for all of our bookings and have added all our services to the system. We hope you like it!

You may also notice our new name and revised logo. We’re now known as Red Fun Casinos, to reflect the organic journey our business has undergone. Since offering this service in 2017, casino events have become the major part of our business. We had some truly great casino events in December and have been lucky to build up our network of fully trained professional croupiers. With this structure in place, we are now able to offer events beyond Peterborough and Cambridge this year, and can cover all of the Midlands and even London.

To give our clients the best possible experience, we have been busy refurbishing some of our equipment over the past few weeks. We have completely updated some of our older tables, recovering them with luxurious casino standard foam and premium new matching burgundy cloth layouts. We have invested in an additional full sized John Huxley roulette wheel and are currently putting the finishing touches to our ‘Showcase’ table. This table has come out of a real life casino and is slightly bigger than the rest of our stock. With sumptuously padded rails and brass cup holders, it adds some extra luxury to any event. Our plan is to use this table for Punto Banco/Baccarat, but as it also has a convertible playing surface this table is also able to be used for a variety of other games including Caribbean Stud Poker, Three Card Poker and Let It Ride – or as an additional blackjack table. The result is that we are now able to offer 10 full sized, top quality and matching casino tables from stock. We’re really looking forward to showing them off in 2018!

That’s not to say that we have forgotten our photo booths. These took a real hammering from the parties we attended over the Christmas and New Year period, so they do have been shown some serious love. As well as getting a good deep clean, we’ve been busy replacing the all important connectors that keep it safe and sturdy, as well as servicing the cameras and cleaning up the hard drives.

Who says January is a quiet month?
