HAT TRICK POKER FAQ
Q. Poker Scratch Off concept
A. Each Poker Scratch Off product line (Birdie Bogey, Football Party, Wedding Day, etc.) includes a list of 15 "events" that could take place during a particular game or occasion. These 15 “events” are randomly generated from a master list of 30 and printed above a corresponding scratch off area on each card. Each scratch off area reveals a computer generated playing card and suit. As a game or occasion unfolds, players then follow the game or occasion and scratch off their "events" as they occur revealing their best 5-card poker hand. Each card is completely unique with no repeating playing cards and each card is 100% verifiable.
Q. How much do you charge per card?
A. Prices are determined by the event coordinator. The recommended price per card is $5 for charitable 50/50’s (where a charity gets ½ the money and a user gets ½ the money). Cards can also be provided no charge as promotional incentives (Ex: a free hot dog for a full house, free tickets to the next game for four of a kind, etc.). Or, you can do a winner takes all type of game. See our product’s disclaimer for more information.
Q. How will they know how to play?
A. Game rules are on the back of each game card. Hat-Trick Poker is a simple and fun game that can be played by people of all ages. As the hockey game unfolds, players scratch the reveals that coincide with the events that occur within the game. Spectators scratch the reveals during the game to build their best 5 card poker hand. Make sure players know where to report winning hands (game kiosks, official team webpages, etc) and designate an official hand reporting deadline. This can be done at the end of the game or even within a 1 week window following the conclusion of the game. Players may also use the QR code on the back of each card to direct them to the rules and FAQ page at pokerscratchoffs.com.
Q. How do you know who wins?
A. Game cards can be validated by event coordinators, ticket offices, concession cashiers, or even an organization’s Facebook director. It’s a great way to generate social media traffic or get new customers in the door. Contact Poker Scratch Offs for more information on specialized game kiosks (only available on larger orders). All cards have 100% verifiable game events that can be verified using an official box score.
Q. Who can use Hat-Trick Poker?
A. This fun new scratch off game can be used at home with friends and family, at your favorite sports bar, or even at real professional sports arena’s. Whether you need just 25 cards or 25,000, Poker Scratch Offs has what you need.
Q. What can Hat-Trick Poker be used for?
A. Hat-Trick Poker is a fun interactive scratch off game that plays off the action in the actual hockey game. As the game unfolds, the players scratch their events to make their best 5 card poker hand. You can offer prizes, winner-take-all cash pot, or use them to raise money for an important charity in a 50/50.
Q. What if they scratch off all the reveals by accident?
A. Reveals that are scratched incorrectly can be invalidated, but event coordinators have the final decision.
Q. What do you do in the case of a tie?
A. Just like in real poker, ties do happen. However, depending on the amount of cards being played, the odds of a tie with Hat Trick Poker are very rare. If there is a tie, that means there are 2 first place winners and they split their share of the pot. Ultimately, ties can be decided by the event coordinator to prevent any conflicts.
Q. Can players cheat?
A. Players cannot cheat and cards are 100% verifiable using serial numbers and box scores. Kiosk games have built in systems which prevent any cheating from occurring.
