Poker Deluxe are an awesome fundraising organization.  They are friendly and professional and explain the rules and steps of the night clearly which is great for our players who are not as good as others.   The prizes for all people on the final table were great and we were able to change our first prize to cash, the second time around - they are very flexible.  We are very happy with Todd and his wife and will be using them again in the future as this has been a very successful fundraising event for our small family sports club.  Thank you Poker Deluxe and your team. UMA Karate

Peter Argyropolous Fundraising Testimonial
Daniel and his college was fantastic on the night. We ran a fundraiser for Monash City FC and not only did everybody have an amazing night, but the night was run exceptionally well with all instructions clearly advised. Highly recommended if you want a good event to be run by Poker Deluxe and raise some good funds for your club. All our attendees had such a good time, requests to run another event again later in the year have been approved. Thank you Daniel and company for such a fantastic night and helping our club raise some good funds. keep up the good work guys see you in September!!!

Brad Grose Fundraising Testimonial
Our poker fundraiser for the second year running was a great success. It was well organised, the staff's professionalism and customer service was excellent. We raised between 2.5-3k with only 44 guests. See you next year!
Rob Lamb Fundraising Testimonial
We are a small club in comparison to some clubs , so finances are very important. I love the way that Poker Deluxe guaranteed you to make money.  This takes a lot of pressure off the clubs organisers.  The gentlemen assisting and running the night were informative , helpful and patient with all who attended. I think the learn how to play in the first hour is a fantastic idea. As a club we did not have to organise much at all outside some food and Alcohol and made $3000 towards the kids trip to WA.  Very easy and relaxed night and its only 4 to 5 hours … Great job !
Ipswich Basketball Association
Marney George Fundraising Testimonial
Thank you for organising the event!  Everyone had such a great time.  Unfortunately, I believe the floods effected our attendance but for the amount we had there (29 players) it was still a great night and we raised over $1600.

Garfield Golf Club would like to thank Poker Deluxe for an excellent night , lots of laughs & a great time had by all ! we are looking forward to our next night with Poker Deluxe!
Andrew Peterson Fundraising Testimonial
Paul, we thank you again for the Poker Night you ran for our Club recently, and as always, you guys totally fulfilled your obligations for the night and our expectations fully and admirably! Whilst we made a good profit and enjoyed a fun night, we have learned that for our Club, the night needs to be during the season and not after it, and we have to focus on one thing only for the night - get more players along! So many thanks Paul, and we look forward to working with you at some point in the future.
Gary Trytell Fundraising Testimonial
Epworth Healthcare recently used Poker Deluxe for a fundraising event. We had a very successful evening from a fund raising perspective and everyone had a great time in the process. We would definitely use Poker Deluxe again to run similar events. Thanks to Paul and Myles for a great evening!
Fahim Khondaker Fundraising Testimonial
We have now been using Poker Deluxe to run our Annual Charity Poker Night for the past four years. The service has always been exceptional and we would recommend Poker Deluxe to any organisation looking to host a poker function. Poker Deluxe takes care of the logistics and admin which frees us up to focus on the reason we host the fundraiser.
David Harris
Thanks so much for hosting the evening. Everyone had a great night and the boys were buzzing about it at training last night! The event was the best night of the year for us, both in terms of entertainment and financially. You were very friendly and professional and helpful and kept everyone under control. We raised well over 2000. The package we went with was perfect for us. Our lads prefer cash prizes and as a club we like to give cash back so they can spend it at the bar 😛 Ticket prices were perfect for us and we would definitely go with you guys again! Thank you so much again for all your help.
Mark Worthley
This is our 4th or 5th Poker fundraiser with Poker Deluxe and it has always one of our best fundraising events each year for the club. The staff are to be commended for their professional and friendly conduct and make the night a successful operation with a great atmosphere.
Peter Argropoulos
I found Paul and company to be very professional. They conducted themselves with a real good positive vibe and the way the event is setup is fantastic. The club raised some good funds which will go toward improving facilities and equipment for the club. The event was run really good from raising the blinds and not making the event drag out. Everyone who provided feedback thought it was a fantastic event and Poker Deluxe is and will be highly recommended for all other sporting clubs to use. The guys running the event know their stuff and made this even more enjoyable and the prizes are fantastic which allowed all players to really play good serious poker with a lot of laughs. Well done poker Deluxe, we will definitely be running this event again!!!
Picton Rangers FC
Bradley Durrant
Picton Football club raised over $2,000 from this successful Poker Deluxe Event. Really easy to organise and everything went smoothly in the lead up to the night thanks to Pauls’ hard work. On the night Chris was fantastic and made the night even better than what we expected. The night was that successful we have already scheduled in our Poker night as a yearly event on Picton’s social calendar. Can’t recommend Poker Deluxe highly enough.
Lilian Bougiouklis
I would just like to send you a quick note that your Staff where extremely professional and all our members were extremely impressed and are keen on me holding another event. So thank you once again and I’m sure we will be in touch in the future.
Dawn Stone
We were very happy with our Poker evening. It is always difficult running fundraising events that people enjoy. The Staff from Poker Deluxe made sure that the evening went smoothly and ensured that they took the pressure off of running the evening. The guys from Poker Deluxe were polite, friendly and made sure that everyone had a good evening whilst making sure that we raised funds on the night. They took time out to patiently explain the game to poker newbies. We would definitely recommend Poker Deluxe and will certainly use them again. A great night!
Ashley Goldsbrough
Burraneer Rugby Club would like to thank Poker Delux for a wonderful evening. Organising a fund raising event can be very stressful. Due to the experienced staff supplied by Poker Delux we were able to allocate more time serving food, drinks, and socialising with our guests.
Erin Gray
Poker Deluxe provided the Bullsbrook Football Club with a great fundraiser. We were excited to have raised so much money for our club and everyone who attended said it was a fantastic night. The prizes were amazing and the staff were very helpful and professional throughout the night. Thanks very much for such a successful and fun event!.
Evan Butterworth
Our club held a Poker Deluxe night to raise funds for the renovations of our change rooms. The 70 attendees raised over $5000 for out club and just as importantly everyone had a fantastic time. People are already talking about planning next years event and how many extra mates they are going to bring along. From a club point of view the best part was Poker Deluxe did everything , all we had to do was promote the event & man the bar. Evan Butterworth, President, St Marys Greensborough Junior Football Club.
Maddy Daley
Thank you for another great fundraising event! As usual the staff were very helpful and professional leading up to and throughout the night, and we were able to raise $6,600 from the poker tournament and silent auction. Thanks very much for such a successful and fun event!
Kelly Whiteman
Days later I have people from the event contacting me to tell me how much fun they had at the Poker event. Poker Deluxe were fantastic the whole way through. They helped me set the ticket and buy in prices and calculated for me how much we could expect to make on the evening. I wasn't so sure, but they were right. Poker Deluxe helped me select a venue and prizes, I really didn't need to organise much at all other than the participants! We started with an introduction to poker and all players felt confident to give it a go, even if hesitant at first, and attending only just to watch. What I didn't expect was how great the poker evening was at bringing a random bunch of unacquainted people together, and they had a ball. I would use Poker Deluxe again and would highly recommend poker for more other events.
Kris Farr

Shaun Dougherty
In our first year of Poker Deluxe fundraising our club and committee were extremely satisfied with the customer service and interaction with the Poker Deluxe team. Our club, with minimal input raised a sizable amount towards our projected fundraising target for the season in one night! The Poker Deluxe team provided support and promotional material leading up to the event, making the staging and management of the evening incredibly easy in comparison with other events we have implemented..
Matthew Bell
We have used Poker Deluxe for the last 3 years and they provide a very professional service. We would recommend them to any sporting club as a way of generating additional fundraising funds. We raised over $3000 and our members have a fantastic time and the Poker Deluxe team are the reason for this.
Tony Pittorino
As a first time user of Poker Deluxe the night ran so smoothly the team on site were very focused on making the night an enjoyable one as well as most importantly focused on raising as much money for the club as possible. The club has run a couple of poker nights previously by smaller providers that had not been successful this night has restored this type of fundraiser at our club, thanks for a great job.
David Chesterfield
Our fundraiser was an outstanding success raising over $4000. The staff were professional, courteous and well presented. We were delighted with the prizes provided. The fundraising took care of itself through the quality and organisation of the product. This will be an annual event. Thank you.

A very professional and well organized business. Plenty of help and suggestions during the lead up to the event and staff were nothing short of excellent on the night. We managed to raise well over what we expected and will definitely be using Poker Deluxe in the future.
Craig Seccull
Our club had a fantastic evening both a great fundraiser with over $6000 profit but an absolutely memorable social right across our club from juniors to Vets! People were asking at the end of the night what day we are running the event in 2016 ! . The Poker Deluxe staff were incredible taking the running of the night out of our hands and followed through professionally teaching everyone in the room how to play…….great fun and fantastic fundraiser.

Perry Mur
From the first time I rang Poker Deluxe they were nothing but helpful. Tickets, posters and invitation were sent out to help promote the event, they stayed in touch leading up the event, arrived nice and early to set up, they had a learners table 30 mins prior to start which was great as lots of people had not played poker before. The night was well organised, ran smoothly, everybody thanked me at the end saying how good it was. We also raised over $2000 which was great. We will do this again next year.
Richie Hope
To the crew at Poker Deluxe on behalf of Buckley Ridges CC we would like to thank you so much for all your efforts. It was a great kick start to the season with a great profit made on the night. Your organisation of the event and staff’s professionalism was 10 out of 10 and the prizes were great. No doubt at all we will be holding another Poker night when the season starts again
Caroline Chellew
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your efforts and professionalism during our recent fundraiser. We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests regarding Poker Deluxe’s handling of the event, and also many commented at how much they enjoyed the evening. The Love Angel Foundation considered it to be a very successful evening and more than happy with the result. Thanks again for all of your help in the lead up to the event, and your assistance with my many questions. I won’t hesitate in recommending your company to friends, and look forward to dealing with you again next year.
Fahim Khondoker
We hosted our poker night and it all went smoothly as expected. A big thank you to Simon for being such a great host yet again. He did extremely well to raise more money from people on the night. We raised over $4,000, which is fantastic for only 8 tables!
Bec Byrnes
I spent the whole weekend reflecting on how truly amazing my job is when you witness such beautiful and honest displays of generosity, love, spirit and camaraderie that was Friday’s poker fundraiser. What an amazing atmosphere!!! We raised approx. $5,700!!! This is remarkable! Our total for Harry’s Kokoda is now sitting at $74,496. We are excited to make this an annual event. Thanks to Mark and Toni (Poker Deluxe fundraiser hosts) and also to everyone who attended and contributed to our mind-blowing total.
Adrian Zorich
5 out of 5! This is the second time we’ve used Poker Deluxe and their service is fantastic. Both times we have had very successful events. They provide a service so all you have to do is sit back relax and join in the fun. The prizes were of a high standard and we look forward to using them again next year!
Julius Waras Carstensen
Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you and your staff for a fantastic night on Saturday night. The staff were very professional and understanding of everything that went on during the night and once again we had a fantastic result for our club. We will look forward to working with you again next year to make the event bigger and better.
Judith Mooney
I wanted to personally send my thanks and congratulations on the fantastic event that was Poker for Parkinson’s. After attending the event, experiencing not only the game but the professionalism of your team and the general atmosphere that you created, I am pleased to say that I was very impressed. I would not hesitate to recommend Poker Deluxe and its staff to other organizations wanting to conduct a novel yet professional fundraising event that offers a good expense to income return ratio.
Andrew McCreery
On behalf of Dingley Cricket Club I would like to thank Paul and his team for so successfully running a major fundraising and entertainment evening at our club.With more than 100 people in attendance, Poker Deluxe adeptly managed all aspects of the evening to the enjoyment of all participants. Staff were courteous and patient and spent time teaching novices the basics of the game. They provided and set up tables, chips and cards and acted as hosts to ensure the event was run in a timely and efficient manner. The financial return to our club exceeded our expectations. ($10,000) Poker Deluxe is a well trained and professional run organisation that we look forward to engaging again in the near future. We have no hesitation in recommending them to other sporting or community groups.
Mark Worthley
Well done and a big thanks to the staff at Poker Deluxe, This was our 3rd annual Poker Deluxe event held at the soccer club and it was another fantastic night with a great atmosphere. The evening was professionally run from start to finish and the staff on the night were great and controlled the game fantastically for the 85 players we had attend. This Poker Deluxe fundraising event gave the club the opportunity to raise reasonable amount money on the night and get a lot of people involved at the club. This event has turned into our largest fundraising event for the year so keep up the great work guys and we will see you at next years event. Once again Thanks!
Richard Gunn
I’d just like to thank you and your team again for putting on such a great night on Friday, we raised $4200 which will be doubled by LionCo to $8400 before going to a good cause in the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). I suspect this will be repeated as demand will be high and we’ll certainly be using you guys again soon!
Margie Read Flavell
Being a Tennis Club it is always hard coming up with fundraisers that cross both our young and older members, but Poker Deluxe just does that! It was such a fun night, and the people you least expected to get into Poker or win, certainly surprised us all. Paul and his team do all of the organising and setting up – all we had to do was get the people to come along. Paul is very professional and ran our night so smoothly. We would highly recommend Poker Deluxe for any Club, School or organisation that is looking for something different in fundraising.
Brendan Jones
Just wanted to say thankyou – Adam and Luke were great on the night. Whilst we didn’t quite get the numbers we were hoping we certainly had an enthusiastic crowd, and some big spenders, and it was a great atmosphere. Many people commented how much fun it was. We made just over $2200, memorabilia we made $1500 profit and on the bar we made close to $1300 – so around $5k. Hopefully this can become an annual fundraiser, as each year we try and get our u14 boys and girls teams to qualify for Nationals. I have passed on all your contact details and information to Knox Basketball, so the parents of next years group know about you and what money can be raised from such a night.
David McCrae
I would like to thank you on organising a fantastic night, everyone that i have spoken too have said what a fantastic time they had. the club raised over $2800 on the rebuys so with this, the 5 slabs of boags beer & what the club made over the bar it was a very successful night. i have already been asked when we are going to have another night. i would highly recommend Poker Deluxe to any other sporting clubs looking to raise extra funds.
Mark Slater
Thank you Poker Deluxe for a fantastic evening…Professional, friendly and we made some great money for the club…would highly recommend any sports club to book Poker deluxe for a fun evening.
Michael Krischunas
The Croydon Rangers Gridiron Club would like to thank Paul and the Poker Deluxe team for putting on an incredibly entertaining and professional fundraiser for the club on June 23rd. With 65 players we managed to raise $2250 through the poker and almost $4000 on the night as a whole. Would recommend this to any club/organisation as a fantastic way to raise money.
Thanks for the effort you guys put in. For us, it was a major fundraiser. as we don’t have that many functions during the season! The money will definitely come in handy, as there are many things going on around our club. You guys were fantastic hosts – and kept us all entertained. Would definitely recommend it to other cricket/football clubs for an easy fundraising idea
Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal
Thank you for your kind efforts to assist the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. Your support and donation will be very much appreciated by the many Queenslanders directly affected by these disasters.
Fahim Khondaker
Everything was perfect. The setup of the room helped create a fantastic atmosphere – it looked very professional. Simon was a fantastic tournament director, and ran a great tutorial at the beginning for new players. The game ran like clockwork and finished very close to the target time. We had 58 players and raised a gross figure of $3,100 for Movember – a lot more than we had hoped for. People were having such a good time that they did not want to leave. Thank you – we’ll definitely be using you guys again!
Greg Hannon
From the moment I made contact with Poker Deluxe the support for our function has been amazing. From Facebook support to extra tickets to follow up emails ensuring everything is ready in preparation for the event. Poker Deluxe can raise significant funds for any organisation that chooses to use them. The nights are fun filled and very different to usual fund raising events. I highly recommend using Poker Deluxe for your next fund raising event!
Phil Proctor
The night went well, all things considered. We only ended up with 39 people playing, but your guys worked very hard and really got them going after a while and we still raised just over $1000 for the club which is fantastic. It does make me realise the potential of what we could have raised if we had all 65 people playing as first planned. I didn’t get to see your team at the end of the night as I was working behind the bar flat out, but I would again like to express the gratitude I have as they were very patient in waiting a little longer to start for some late comers and they worked really hard to get the extra $$ out of people. Thanks again for all your help and understanding during the process and I will have no problems at all recommending your services to other people in the future
Damian Kinsella
We were very impressed with the way our function was organised and run. Paul has a way of geting everyone’s attention in a firm and professional manner. Our group had a fantastic night and we raised enough to cover our seasons expenses despite only getting 40 people to attend. We would not hesitate in using Poker Deluxe again.
Michael Krischunas
The Croydon Rangers Grid Iron Club would like to thank Poker Deluxe for another fantasitc, fun and professionally run event. This was the second event that we have used Poker Deluxe for our club fundraiser and with just 52 people attending, we raised $2924 – a huge result of the club. Thanks to Paul and all the staff at Poker Deluxe, we will see you again next year.
Carlie Thompson
Selling tickets to our first major fund raiser for the year was an uphill battle!!! We managed to influence a total of 56 player to join in the fun.  As soon as the night started we knew it would be a success!! We raised $2700 and created an amazing buzz around the next function we would hold with Poker Deluxe. The boys were great and had everything under control. Thanks guys, see you next year
Mark Worthley
