Against All Odds mobile casino company is the brainchild of couple, Marc and Victoria Limrick, who want to provide functions and parties with the Las Vegas experience.

Mrs Limrick started working as a croupier in a London casino at the age of 18.

She said: "I worked in a casino in London Mayfair, in fact that is where I met Marc who also worked as a dealer before I sadly left to start a family."

Mr and Mrs Limrick, of High Easter, now have three children and Victoria decided it was time to get back into the exciting world of roulette and blackjack.

She said: "My mother kept saying to us, why don't you start your own business? It made sense because between us we have a wealth of experience with more than 35 years in the West End."

They started their own business, and in October last year Against All Odds was born and because they are a small company they can keep their costs low and pass that saving onto their clients.

So far the couple have been very well received at parties and functions all around Essex where they provide classic casino games including blackjack, American roulette and casino stud poker.

Mrs Limrick said: "We give the night a real personal touch by using fun money and fun cheque books as well as prizes for the luckiest players on the night.

"We are here for people who

really want to have a good time at a low cost.

"This is something we genuinely enjoy doing, our fee includes setting up, the distribution of our fun money and more importantly three full hours of gaming."

"We cover any events such as birthdays, private parties, balls or business functions and fund-raising." The couple offer the following games:

American roulette

There is a 70cm wheel with the numbers 0 to 36 and the layout also has the numbers 0 to 36.

You place your chips on the layout and if the ball falls into

the number where your chips lay you win.

Its as simple as playing on

red or black.

Blackjack

Blackjack is a card game. You firstly get two cards and you choose if you want another or to stay as you are. The object of the game is to beat the dealer but not to go over 21.

Casino stud poker

You place a bet in the ante box and get given five cards to look at. The dealer also has five cards, one of which you can see.

You decide after looking at your hand whether or not you wish to play on and if you do you raise. If you decide the hand is not for you, you fold and lose your ante bet.

Again you are playing against the dealer not the other players

on the table.
