Frequently Asked Questions

How much money or vouchers should I give away in the money machine?

We like to tell participants at our events that they can grab the cash and put it into a supplied apron or through a slot in the front of the machine. The only rule is you can't grab below your knees. This keeps them from just reaching down and grabbing the cash off the floor.

Now you can see why we appropriately named it "The Funny Money Machine". Spectator laughs immediately begin as the participant inside the machine begins to squirm and stash the cash. If you use this scenario, we recommend inserting approximately 200 bills into the machine for optimum circulation. With 200 bills in the machine, the participant will grab about 20 to 35 bills on the average; based on 20 - 25 seconds in the machine.

You can use all one dollar bills, which is usually the case, or you can mix 5's, 10's, 20's, etc. We will often insert 200 one-dollar bills and one $100 bill in to see who gets lucky.

You can reduce the amount of bills taken out by reducing the amount of time that the participant has to grab the airborne bills. Bottom line is - you can give away as little or as much as you would like.
