The Campus Activities Board kicked off Homecoming week with a Casino Night Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. in the Student Union.
Hundreds of people showed up to VSU’s Casino Night for a fun evening of games, prizes and finger food. There were over 100 tables of different casino games such as black jack, Chuck-a-Luck, poker, roulette, three-card poker, three-card black jack, and much more.
CAB held the event in the Student Union ballrooms. Workers gave students a coupon for $500 in chips to play games before they walked through the doors. At each table students made their bets and hoped to win big.
“I like dealing because it’s fun. I get to meet a lot of new and fun people at these events,” Alexandria Fisher, dealer for Casino Party Planners, said.
Casino Party Planners is an event company based out of Jacksonville, Florida that comes out to VSU’s casino night every year to entertain students and teach them about gambling games.
“I came out tonight because I wanted to gamble,” Nick Chambers, a sophomore chemistry major, said. “It’s actually fun even though I’m losing, but you gotta go hard or go home.”
Students were anxious to turn in their chips in return for raffle tickets to enter the raffle for their prize of choice. The Campus Activities Board presented $5,000 worth of prizes for students to choose from. Prizes included three Rokus, a 50-inch television, an Ipad, gift cards, VSU bookstore clothing items, an Asus Laptop, a PlayStation 4, an XBOX One and many more items.
“This is my first time doing this and it’s pretty cool,” Taiya Rivers, a freshman computer information systems major, said.
A live DJ was present playing popular songs and dance songs that got students involved in group dances.
