Grab a deck of cards, invest in a cocktail mixer, and invite your nearest and dearest friends and family: it’s time for some fun. Say goodbye to the stiff and formal home dinner party and instead host a stylish casino party. It’s different, it’s fun, and who knows, you might just end the night with some extra dollars in your pocket. Once you’ve got the basics in place, you’ll just need a killer soundtrack to help set the tone, and that’s just what we’ve put together. Here are some of the best songs to play when you’re hosting a casino party.
Elvis Presley – Viva Las Vegas
You and your friends might like to take a trip to Las Vegas, but scheduling and budget usually rule out those last-minute trips to Sin City. The solution? Bring Vegas to your home! Make some drinks, add some sparkling lights, and visit Wildz, a website that offers an exciting live casino experience. All you’ll need then is the perfect soundtrack, and what better way to create an atmosphere than by blasting Viva Las Vegas By Elvis Presley? It’s the ultimate Vegas song that’ll add an extra layer of fun and excitement to your evening.
Frank Sinatra – Luck Be A Lady
Ol’ Blue Eyes is associated with the bright lights of Vegas almost as much as he is with crooning. Transport you and your friends back to the classy, stylish world of the 1950s with Luck Be A Lady, a song originally written for the musical Guys and Dolls, which features gambling as a major plot device. There are many versions of this track, but Frank Sinatra’s is the signature track. Looking to lean into this track even further? Couple it with a Guys and Dolls dress code.
Lady Gaga – Poker Face
The younger members of your party may have heard of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, but they might not be quite as enamored with the two legends as the older ladies and gentlemen. Rather than risk them leaving the casino party early, throw them a bone by playing a song that they’ll surely have heard. Lady Gaga’s song Poker Face is probably a bit too uptempo to play while everyone’s trying to focus on their cards, but it can provide an energetic dose of fun in between hands.
Kenny Rogers – The Gambler
Is there a better gambling song than ‘The Gambler’? If there is, then we haven’t heard it. Many different artists have recorded the song, but the Kenny Rogers version really captured the public’s imagination. However, you may want to talk over the lyrics when the song is playing because they contain some pretty valuable words of advice that might just come back to bite you: you’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em. And ain’t that the truth….
The Rolling Stones – Casino Boogie
Casino Boogie is a deep cut from the Rolling Stones’ 1972 album Exile On Main Street. Don’t pay too much attention to the lyrics since they’re mostly gibberish, but who cares? This track has a boogie, bluesy feel that’ll make it feel like you’re playing cards in the back of a roadside saloon.
Motorhead – Ace Of Spades
Looking to pump up the energy? Then Ace of Spades by Motorhead should be your go-to track. This is a high-octane, all-fun song that’ll keep the casino party going deep into the night. Just be sure to keep your wits about you: this song might just have you throwing in bets like there’s no tomorrow. If you like to gamble, I tell you I’m your man; you win some, lose some, all the same to me.
