A cashboard game is a seal card game within a game that offers the excitement and quick turn over of a short count seal but with the enticement of bigger prizes displayed on an oversized cashboard Seal Card. Most cashboard games contain 3,800 or more tickets, but the total game count is divided into smaller groups (sub sections) with each subsection containing a few instant winners, hold tickets and a seal winner. Each section is separately packed with a pre determined number of tickets and contains a seal card for the section.
As the smaller sections (200-500 tickets) are sold, players hold tickets (just like a seal game) for a chance to win prizes. Once the smaller section is sold out, the operator will reveal the winning hold number on the sub section seal card. This winner will now proceed to the larger cashboard and select a window (there is a window on the cashboard for each sub section). For example, if the total count of the game is 3,800 tickets and there are 10 sub sections of 380 tickets each, there are 10 windows on the larger cashboard. Behind the windows on the cashboard are prizes that can be won.
Cashboards are a great way to create excitement as there is a chance for the players to pick their own window with a chance to win the prize. The subsections allow for faster play as there is a constant flow of action as each section is a game and the larger count is divided into small games for the quick turn.
