The American Riches Road Tour is a one-of-a-kind, highly interactive, casino friendly show where the members of the audience and their "hidden treasures" are the real stars. Tagging off of the boom in "rags to riches, I didn't know it was worth that much" reality TV shows like Antique Roadshow, Pawn Stars, Hardcore Pawn, Auction Kings, and (of course), American Pickers, the American Riches Road Tour brings this popular genera from the customer's living room TV to the casino stage, live! This is a fast paced, dynamic show featuring a number of elements your customers want and like to see:
- An entertaining, "folksy" interactive show with humor and storytelling.
- An opportunity to meet a real TV celebrity in the flesh.
- Real people just like them from the area who might be their neighbors or friends
- Real valuables that might me of historical significance or of collector value.
- A real chance of getting paid in cash for them (or at least the opportunity to watch someone else haggle to paid!)
In the American Riches Road Tour, audience members are encouraged to gather items before the show from their attic, garage, basement, and closets. Items that they think might be of interest, value, or that have a great story related to them (like old coins, gold, silver, jewelry, wrist and pocket watches, toys, trains, dolls, military items and swords, antique signs and advertising items). Audience members at the show will then have an opportunity to have their items appraised for free by a seasoned expert who may tell them something about the item and give them a estimated "value" of the object or collectable. A few lucky audience members will be selected (or depending on how you want to do the show, they might have the opportunity because of their seating or VIP status) to appear on stage with their item and Frank in order to discuss that item and possibly make a deal for it!
And here is the kicker, if any quest chooses to sell their item and a deal is made, (either with one of our experts or with Frank on stage), they will be paid cash on the spot for it by us! 99% of those customers turn right around and spend that money on your casino floor!
In the event you choose to have an afternoon show (and most casinos do); and unlike most casinos, you'll have captured your most valuable guest early in the day, and why shouldn't they make great use of the trip to visit their favorite casino restaurant and stay and play the games they love!
Doors will open at one hour before the show, and ithe deal making will begin shortly after. Upon entering the room, guest will receive a wristband, which will allow them to leave and re-enter throughout the day. There will be an Item Check area set up, where guests will be able to leave items and pick them up later in the day.
The show runs for 90 minutes, and then Frank will come out and meet your audience after the stage show, take pictures with them, and sign the free 81/2 x 11 photo prints we provide to you for your customers. Short breaks are taken throughout the day.
MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE TO SELL ITEMS. *Guests may bring in gold, silver, jewelry and collectables to the event and the producers and their associates may offer to buy the items, appraise the items or tell a story about the items. NO FIREARMS, OTHER WEAPONS, OR CARS ALLOWED!
