Casino Night Hits the Jackpot

If you’ve ever wanted to go to Las Vegas, or have a flare for card games and betting your bottom dollar, chances are you’re one of the approximately 100 people who went to Concord’s casino night. Wednesday, February 2, saw students playing blackjack, poker, shooting craps and spinning a wheel of fortune to earn big money. Big money was indeed earned, mostly in the form of poker chips ranging from one to five hundred dollars in theoretical value, with a wide selection of prizes from candy and soda being in the one thousand dollar end, to gift cards, DVD’s and headphones being the high end prizes.

Andrew Sulgit, who oversaw the event, said that they decided to go with more prizes to suit a larger turnout. “A lot of times when we’re doing prizes, we tend to go big, which is cool, it’s a good incentive, but with limited resources it also means we can only offer so much,” Sulgit explained, “If you offer smaller value prizes, but buy more, more people, in theory, could win. I feel like almost everybody that was there walked away with something, and a lot of them played all night.”     There was much fun to be had, and students are urged to attend future events for lots of prizes and lots of fun.
