Hundreds of thousands of dollars changed hands across the gaming tables in Nanango on Saturday night.
Unfortunately for the instant “millionaires” enjoying the Casino Night fundraiser, they couldn’t convert their “winnings” into real dollars at the end of the night … but that didn’t stop anyone from having heaps of fun.
The gala night at the Nanango Cultural Centre was organised by the Nanango Funfest Committee to raise funds for this year’s New Year’s Eve Nanango Mardi Gras.
Professional croupiers from Brisbane were manning blackjack, roulette, Texas Hold’em and other tables while “Elvis” (Jeff Hancox) sang live on stage.
Tickets for the night included $1000 in funny money to kick off the fun.
Volunteers wandered around through the “gamblers” supplying hot finger food.
This is the second year that the Funfest Committee has hosted a casino night in Nanango.
