Video Pull Tab Machines

Our Video Pull Tab Games come with from two to four “boxes” of virtual pull tabs active at a time, depending on the game. Spinning Sevens, for example, has four “boxes” active depending on which game denominations are active, $5, $2, $1, or 50 cents. The games can be set to $1 or 50 cents to play at the start of a “box” but cannot be changed in the middle of a “box.

A “box” is defined as 40,000 virtual pull tabs or game results. These virtual pull tabs are programmed into each board in a random order and the game simply displays the next virtual pull tab in the order in which they were programmed. There is no random number generator in the game itself.

Each game board has 50 refills available for each “box”. “Boxes” are refilled by purchasing an unlock code which is entered into the game board. When a “box” is completely emptied, the next “box” will be opened. This means that there are up to 8 million virtual pull tabs pre-programmed into Spinning 7’s. When all the virtual pull tabs are exhausted the refill module is swapped out and the process starts again.

Our games have progressive features that can be used in either stand alone mode or networked together for a faster build rate. A percentage of game play is added to the progressive jackpot, for example 1%. When the virtual pull tab for that progressive jackpot is pulled, the prize is awarded. The progressive prize can be capped with any amount going over the cap being added to the next jackpot.

Are Electronic Pull Tab Machines Really Slot Machines in Disguise?

Since slot machines were first invented many manufacturers of those machines have devised ways to design them to become legal in certain jurisdictions were slot machines are not permitted, and one of the more novel ways of giving players a slot machine like playing experience is by designing something known as an Electronic Pull Tab machine.

You will not doubt be very familiar with how a normal slot machine works and operates, and those machines using a random number generator to ultimately determine the outcome of each spin played off.

However, in certain parts of the world, namely some U.S. States slot machines are not permitted, and that has led to a small number of companies offering a gaming machine that is not technically a slot machine but a machine that does look like a slot.

Many charities have chosen to raise funds by selling pull tabs, and these are for all intents and purposes a small card on which a purchaser of those cards pulls off a certain number of tabs on those cards in the hope they match certain cash values or a set of matching symbols to win the associated cash prizes.

Whilst to be perfectly honest those pull tabs will get very boring to play if you buy more than just a small number of them, some companies now offer an electronic version of them that are housed in a cabinet that does look like a slot machine.

The main difference between one of these electronic pull tab machines and as slot machine is that they are programmed with a finite number of outcomes, much like the way a batch of pull tab tickets are, some will be winning ones but there will of course be more losing one’s than winning ones.

As such when you play these types of machine you will get just as much fun and excitement as you do when playing a slot machine for they will have spinning reels and the aim of each “spin” you play off will be to get a matching set of symbols spinning in.

In fact, unless you know you are playing an electronic pull tab machine you will not notice the difference between playing them and playing a slot machine. The main benefit of these machines is that they can be legally operated in places where slot machines are not permitted.

Plus, when playing them a percent of the profit they make is going to charity, and due to the way they are designed the charity and also the operator of those electronic pull tabs machines are guaranteed to earn a set amount of income each time a full cycle of spins have been played off.
