Pull-Tabs are similar in look to a lottery ticket except they are made from two plies of poster board which are glued together. Each ticket has three to five die-cut windows which you snap open to show the symbol sets in each window. Prizes for pull-tabs are generally smaller than lottery tickets except that pull-tab tickets have a better win ratio, i.e., one in four tickets is a winner, or one in six tickets a winner, etc. Playing pull-tabs during a bingo session can be fun and exciting, and you can win extra money -- as much as $250.00 on a single ticket. When you play pull-tabs you help the charity conducting the bingo session. If you arrive early at a bingo game you can fill in the time by playing pull- tabs. Also, you can play pull-tabs in between games while the caller verifies the bingo game. Playing pull-tabs during the intermission is fun and gives you more chances to be a winner at the bingo session.
This is the most basic of all pull-tab games. Simply match three of the same symbols horizontally in one of the windows and you are a winner. To determine how much money you won, simply turn the ticket over and read the payout for the symbols you matched. An example of a match-three game is the tried-and-true, NEVADA CLUB. There are many other excellent match-three games on the market - play the one you like best. Most match-three games have five windows.
MULTI-WINNERS: Some pull-tab games have tickets that have more than one winner. If you see the words MULTI-WINNERS on the bottom of the ticket be sure to open all the tabs to see if you have more than one winner.
BINGO GAMES: The object of this game is to spell B-I-N-G-O in any rotation. For example, you can spell it: O-I-N-B-G, or B-G-O-I-N, etc. This is s 5-window game. In each window of the ticket there is one letter. After you open all five windows and you spell BINGO, you are a winner. The amount of money you win is determined by the background color in each window. A Red B-I-N-G-O pays the highest amount, while the Green B-I-N-G-O pays the least.
CRISS CROSS GAME: This is a multi-winner game with a twist. Criss Cross games can either be 5-window or 3-window. The easiest way to determine whether you have a winner is that the winning combination of symbols have either a Red or Blue line or arrow connecting the three symbols. Most Criss Cross games have multi-winners. The game plays like Tic-Tac-Toe because you can win vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. The twist is that the winning symbol combination is not necessarily there-like symbols - although it could be. Another winner variation is where you have two like symbols with a different third symbol connected with Red or Blue lines or arrows.
BONUS CRISS CROSS GAMES: These games are a combination of a Criss Cross and a Match-Three game. They always have five windows. Normally, the top half of the front of the ticket is a Criss Cross and the bottom half of the ticket is a Match-Three. The Criss Cross portion, as well as the Match-Three part of the game can appear in any of the five windows. The Match-Three part of the game on the front of the ticket usually has a unique name, i.e., MAGIC LINE, etc. These games are fun to play because you have a chance to win on the Match-Three portion, even if you don't win on the Criss Cross portion. NOTE: on some games you can win on both parts.
