Frequently Asked Questions

Casino Parties by Showbiz Productions

How does a casino party run?

When the guest enters the casino they receive a chip or funny money which they can customize and like a real casino they can cash it in for chips at the end of the night. We can award prizes for the top winners and set up raffles, auctions or gift store.

What type of prizes?

People get caught up in the excitement of playing the games that at one point it becomes secondary. If you have a budget for prizes it lends to the excitement for their good fortune. Gift cards, Restaurant certificates, the latest technology gadget are all good prizes.

Is a deposit required?

We usually require a 50% deposit to reserve the date or you can apply it to your credit card where payment can be taken in full.

What is the age requirement?

Since the play is strictly entertainment there is no age requirement. We host Bar mitzvahs, Quinceanera, Sweet 16, after prom parties and in our opinion young people learn valuable lessons about math strategy, social situations and getting a change to play without an electric device.

Should one tip the dealer?

Tipping is not required or expected but it is appreciated. In a regular casino the dealers would be tipped with chips when a dealer's deemed for good service. We think this applies for fun nights and you can tip the dealer in cash or add it to your payment and we will make sure the tip is distributed to the dealers. A 10% gratuity is considered very generous.

How much time do you need to set up?

The set-up time is contingent upon the location and the tables involved. We recommend 1 or 2 hours prior to the event. Set-up delivery and tear down are always included in your contract figure.

How many gaming tables will I need for my event?

We recommend about 60% of people playing at one time and show Biz Productions will custom make a proposal for your event calculating the number of tables taken into consideration the other aspects of your event.

How much space do I need?

Most of the tables are 6' x 3', such as Blackjack and Let-it-Ride, 3 Card Poker and Caribbean Stud are all half moon shaped. The Roulette and small Craps table are rectangular. Texas hold ‘em is oval shaped. The large Craps table is 14' x 5'. Generally, figure approximate 15 square feet for the six-foot tables and about 80 square feet for the large Craps table. Blackjack tables can be placed at a sit down or stand up level, with the latter, lending itself to space and flow. Typically we suggest a few at the sit down level, for elderly, handicapped or anyone needing to be able to be seated.
