Here are some quick ideas to generate pull tab ticket sales in your bars, clubs and halls, once they can reopen.

  • When disposable incomes start to shrink, money becomes tight. 25¢ & 50¢ games provide your players with a less expensive alternative to the traditional dollar games.
  • The more 25¢ & 50¢ pull tab tickets a player opens, the better their chances are of becoming a winner!
  • The more tickets a player can buy for their dollar means more entertainment for the same amount of money. More tabs to pull, more chances to win, and more fun!

Covid-19 Ideas for Operators

Each Operator will need to review the laws that apply to them, but here are some things to think about as you decide how to address COVID-19 for your operations:

Employee/Volunteer Safety

ENTRY SCREENING: Consider screening employees and volunteers at the beginning of each work shift.  Per CDC guidelines, employees or volunteers displaying a temperature over 100.4°F or displaying a cough, shortness of breath or other known symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately be sent home and advised to seek medical attention.[1]  Each employee and volunteer may be required to conduct a daily health assessment to determine and self-certify that they do not have a fever or other symptoms that would require them to stay home and self-isolate.

HAND CLEANSING: Instruct all employees and volunteers to wash their hands, or use sanitizer when a sink is not available, every 60 minutes (for 20-seconds) and after any of the following activities: using the restroom, sneezing, touching the face, blowing the nose, cleaning, sweeping, mopping, smoking, eating, drinking, entering and leaving the gaming area, going on break and before or after starting a shift.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE): Consider the use of appropriate PPE for employees and volunteers based on their responsibilities and state or local regulations. Consider whether employees and volunteers will be required to wear a mask while on the premises. Gloves should be made available to employees and volunteers whose responsibilities require them, as determined by medical experts and local laws, including those employees and volunteers in direct contact with disinfectant solutions and/or in direct contact with customers (i.e. point of sale locations).

PHYSICAL DISTANCING: Employee and volunteer meetings should be conducted in areas that allow for appropriate physical distancing between employees and volunteers. Work responsibilities should be assigned to minimize contact between employees and volunteers (i.e. consider a limit of one employee/volunteer per point of sale location).

HEALTH CONCERNS: Employees and volunteers should be advised to stay home if they are not feeling well and follow the recommendations of public health authorities and medical professionals. 

Customer Safety

ENTRY SCREENING: Consider screening customers upon entry to the premises.  Customers displaying a temperature over 100.4°F or displaying a cough, shortness of breath or other known symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately be sent home and advised to seek medical attention.

HAND CLEANSING: Consider making hand sanitizer available for customers at all point of sale locations or other locations where there is direct contact with organization employees or volunteers.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE): Consider the use of appropriate PPE for customers based on state or local regulations.  If masks are recommended or required, consider if the organization will provide the masks or if customers will be asked (or required) to supply their own.  Adopt policies and procedures for proper identification and age verification of customers while wearing a mask when identification is required (i.e. age verification upon entry, or identification of winners for prize receipts or tax reporting forms).

PHYSICAL DISTANCING: Adopt measures to distance customers from one another in accordance with state and local requirements and guidelines.  Consider the implementation of the following strategies:

  • Use ropes or clearly marked floor coverings to allow for recommended physical distancing throughout the premises.  Consider paying attention to those areas where customers may line up or congregate:  entry points to the premises, point of sale locations, beverage or food stations, and restrooms.

  • Consider clear plastic barriers between employees/volunteers and customers at point of sale locations.

  • Limit access to restrooms to not more than three customers, depending on size.

  • Arrange (or reduce) seating areas to provide for recommended physical distancing between customers.  For multiple person tables, consider spacing chairs at least six feet apart and clearly marking each customer’s playing space.  Place customers on only one side of the table.

  • Consider marking one-way traffic lanes within the premises for employees/volunteers and customers.

  • Consider Restricting or eliminating self-service food and beverage stations, or follow all guidance from state and local public health authorities for cleaning and disinfecting between uses.  Consider the use of single serve cups, plastic utensils and wrapped straws.

  • Stationary electronic gaming devices should be turned off or reconfigured with chairs removed to allow for physical separation between customers.

Cleaning & Sanitation

  • Cleaning and sanitizing products should meet EPA guidelines as effective against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens.[2]

  • Follow CDC guidelines for proper cleaning and disinfecting, including the proper use of disinfecting agents.{[3]}

  • Consider sanitizing employee and volunteer work stations (i.e. point of sale locations, caller’s station) before opening and then on a regular basis and between shifts.

  • Hand sanitizer should be made available to customers, employees and volunteers throughout the premises, particularly in areas with customer contact (i.e. points of sale locations).

  • Consider sanitizing all tables and chairs prior to opening and between each session if there are multiple sessions within a day.

  • Consider sanitizing handheld electronic devices before and after each customer’s use.

  • Consider sanitizing stationary electronic devices and chairs at least every four (4) hours.  Consider making sanitizing wipes available to customers who wish to sanitize a device before use.  In the alternative, make an employee or volunteer available to sanitize an electronic device at the request of a customer.

  • Consider placing a hand sanitizing station for customers near the stationary electronic gaming devices.

  • Unless new, consider sanitizing bingo markers before each session.
