These are “break-open tickets” that are sold separately on the gaming floor for $1 per ticket.
Objective: The objective is to get a ticket with all matching symbols for an instant cash prize, or to get a ticket with three bingo numbers on them, to be played during that bingo session for a chance to win a set prize and a progressive jackpot. Tickets with mismatched symbols are considered losing tickets and can be discarded.
Tickets with bingo numbers on them are to be played during that bingo session. If a number called during the specified session in on the balls ticket, player is to use their dabber to mark that number. A $200 guaranteed prize is paid to the first person to dab the 3 bingo ball numbers on their ticket. If a player dabs each number on the ticket, they yell “BALLS!”. Once the ticket is validated as a winning one, the winner must pick a number from 1 to 10 for a chance at winning the progressive prize.
Some locations may have different renditions of the balls tickets with names such as “Maniac balls” and “double action balls”. There will be some differences with how these balls tickets are played. Be sure to ask a staff member to explain the difference to you.
