Small Games of Chance

JarTrek™ was originally built to manage gaming inventory and profits. The bulk of many clubs’ revenue is derived from the sale of tip jars, punch boards and related gambling devices. If pull tabs “walk out the door” or if bartenders “borrow” from the profits there is the potential to lose a great deal of money! JarTrek™ provides serialized inventory of all games, by game type, from the moment games are received from your distributor to the point when winners are claimed. As we continually add point-of-sale functionality, we never forget the importance of the gaming revenue to your club. More and more states and local municipalities require reporting of small games revenue. JarTrek™ is continually enhanced to meet these requirements.

Various Small Games of Chance

Jar tickets (rippies, instants) are small paper games of chance used for profit making or fund raising. They are sold as individual tickets or ticket bundles. Jar-tickets come with a corresponding "flare" or poster, which displays the winning combinations of symbols or numbers. The flare is displayed at the game site so that each player can see if their jar ticket is a winner.

Pull-tabs (break opens, tear opens) are small paper games of chance used for profit making or fund raising. Pull-tabs are easy to play. The front side of the pull-tab shows winning combinations of symbols and prizes a player can win. And, although a pull-tab may look like your average lottery scratch-off tickets, you may be surprised to learn that the average pull tab payout is nearly 80 percent! Pull tabs put cash back into players’ hands so they can keep on playing.

To gain greater success, charitable organizations use merchandise in their gaming strategy in addition to cash payouts. Merchandise games are sold with a deal of tickets and profit is guaranteed when all the tickets are sold. Players can win instantly or hold out for the opportunity to win bigger prizes. You may be surprised to learn that offering merchandise in addition to cash prizes creates a sense of greater perceived value among customers. Players wager $1 to potentially win items worth significantly more money – items they might not splurge on otherwise.
