Transcript &MiM* lUyte t992 a, Seccce&i, /he University of Houston's twentieth annual Casino Night was held in the Houston Room of the UC. It was sponsored by the RHA and co-sponsored by the SPB. Harold Maddocks, chair of RHA, was in charge of Casino Night's organization. All proceeds from the event went to the Mental Health/Mental Retardation Authority of Harris County to fund Camp Cougar. The theme for Casino Night was the Unsinkable Titanic. The theme came about after the sponsors couldn't decide whether they wanted to create the illusion of being above water or below, so they tried both. The illusion was created by blue and white balloons and nets. To enter the "casino", you bought a ticket for five dollars and received $500 playing money for mock gambling. The gambling games included blackjack, craps, and roulette. An all student jazz band performed throughout the night. There was also a cash bar, people selling roses and tables set up by various orga nizations. Everyone, the players and dealers alike, had a good time. Elisa Conteras, a UH student, said, "It (Casino Night) is a great thing. UH faculty really need to get more involved because it's for a good cause." Roulette seemed to be the most popular game. So many people crowded the table that another had to be opened. Roulette dealer, John Preston said roulette to be the most popular because, "It's an easy game, and there aren't any hard rules." But Laura Skogen, UH student, said "craps is the best game because you have better odds." Whatever the preference of the gambler, he or she seemed to be having a ball. As the night progressed, and you ran out of play money, you were able to purchase more play money. At the end of the evening, if you were fortunate to have won more money, you got the opportunity to auction several prizes. Casino Night, aboard the Unsinkable Titanic, was a success due to not just the attractions but the dedicated people who made it all happen. - Joyetta Johnson dealer shows off his slight of hand at the Blackjack table.
