With the weather starting to cool down and the rainy days becoming more regular, it appears the winter is creeping closer. And whilst we wave goodbye to beach days, summer barbecue’s and cricket, we say hello to the start of the season for football clubs, soccer clubs, and rugby clubs.

With pre-season well and truly in full swing, the start of the proper season is just around the corner and for a lot of clubs, this means getting together with the social committee and planning this year’s events for the club. If you’re sick of the same old raffles, trivia nights and quiz nights, you may want to consider a poker night from Poker Deluxe.

With over $1 million raised for sporting clubs and charities around Australia, Poker Deluxe takes the stress out of organising your fundraiser. Poker Deluxe put their money where their mouth is too, guaranteeing a profit of at least $1000 for any event they host where 50 people attend.

Poker Deluxe do everything, from organising and sending you promotional material for your fundraiser (posters, invitations, tickets) to providing over $2000 worth of prizes on the night. They bring everything along on the night (except chairs) to run the event including tables, chips, cards, tournament software and professional hosts to coordinate the night.

The reason Poker Deluxe’s events are so successful and have raised so much money is the unique way they are structured. All you have to do is sell the tickets they provide and the majority, if not all, of the costs will be covered, before the night has even begun! Then on the night, Poker Deluxe’s professional hosts will run a rebuy style poker tournament (VIC, NSW, QLD), where players can buy more chips if they get short or want more, with 100% of the rebuys going directly back to the club. The more times players rebuy, the more money the club raises!

After the rebuys have finished, it becomes a knockout tournament and once players lose their chips they’re eliminated from the tournament. The tournament hosts will break tables down until there is eventually 9 players left at which point they are moved onto a final table with a professional dealer and play down until there is one player left who is crowned the winner.

The nights normally last around 3-3.5 hours and are always great fun. Everyone has a blast, there are some fantastic prizes to be won and most importantly, plenty of money is raised for the club or organisation! So if your clubs events are well attended and you can get 50 players there then there’s no reason not to host a Poker Deluxe fundraiser.
