Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Tops and Bottoms Ticket?
A Tops and Bottoms Ticket allows a person to be involved in a coin flip for a prize. Each Person in the group chooses either their top (hand on their head) or bottom (hands on their bottom.) Person guesses the likelihood that a coin will be flipped where they have their hands placed. People continue to be eliminated in the group until there are only two people left to win the prize on the final flip. Winner must present their Tops and Bottoms ticket.

 

What are Bag Raffle Tickets used for?
Baskets and various items are placed on the table with a small bag in front of each of them. After tickets are purchased the patron places whatever amount of tickets in the bag or bags in front of the items they would like. At a prescribed time, a ticket is drawn from the bag and the item awarded to the winner. Logic being, your chances are increased to win the prize with more tickets placed in the bag.
