Anyone here with any comments and information on Pulltabs in their State.

Here in Washington it is incredibly big. Every Bar offers these pulltabs with a 61% to 71% return to the player the chances are better than Lottery....

I am thinking of a strategy web site and I am wondering whether anyone plays them or has anything to share....

      LuckyCat,

      Thanks for the response. Yeah kind of like that....Ours here have mostly only one "slot" and they are shown in bowls behind the bar counter. E.g 6000 tickets in a bowl price $.25 with like 8 times $72 winners in it 4 $15 winners and some lower amounts or so-called $1 playbacks....

      It is just a real craze, there is hardly any bar around that does not have up to 40 of these games there. The bartenders become casino dealers... it actually is pretty widl to see so many people gambling night and day in their local pub.

      I am trying to find out more on how these things are handled in different states, etc.

        ok  the bingo tickets have 1 or 5 slots  out of a box maybe1000 tickets

        there is another name for ur discription/ I cant  rem but they are in all the bars here too. and some charity playces.

        why dont you go to your local BINGO supply  store  pay the 30/or 40 $ take home open all any you will see. that the sellers profit is sometime giantac

        I did that a few times just to see where the big prizes are in the box ect

        sometine pull tabs are on a card and again BUY wholesale card and check it out

        amount of wins  ect

        good luck      >    P/s some  states outlaw  them so they are underground

        or only for legit church charities. bars usualy sdo not qualify.

          I also would be interested in this.



          Do the people who produce / monitor this kind of format have a wbesite listed on the card?



          Good idea Luckycat. Buy a whole box and check the odds there. The thing is a whole box could be expensive.



          I wonder what the rules are for the people that work behind the bar?



          I mean if I was working there I would monitor the people buying them if you sell 10 tickets in a row and they all lose then buy 10 tickets if this averages out to 60 to 70% return then you would dventually be ahead by 50 to 75 cents for every $2.50 you spend (ie total return $3.00 to $3.75) It might sound like peanuts but over time.



          Just me thinking loud what do you guys think.
