Have you ever imagined yourself as James Bond in Casino Royale or Ace played by De Niro in Scorsese’s Casino; tuxedo-wearing, martini-sipping, smooth-talking? You’d be surrounded by beautiful people, lucky at every casino table and at every bet. We imagine you’d prefer to skip the obligatory fight scene, but still dream of winning it big, catching that lucky streak, the adrenalin rush as you get a great poker hand or the roulette ball ends up on the color you choose?
Well dreams sometimes come true – at least they did for the Fyber team, when we turned our Berlin office lounge into a mini Monte Carlo, or even Las Vegas. We had blackjack and poker and roulette, everything to satisfy one’s gaming needs. Everyone was looking dapper: We were surrounded by “Sam ’Ace’ Rothsteins” and “Ginger McKennas”. It seemed as if they had just stepped off the big screen and into the Fyber lounge.
Observing the croupiers was entertainment in itself. With their swift hand movements as they dealt the cards or gave out winnings, you would think they were all magicians or illusionists in their spare time. I, personally, didn’t notice the time fly by and was very disappointed when it came to an end. It was a great night of friendly competition, an excuse to get dressed up, and most importantly, a fantastic opportunity to get to know our fellow Fybers!
