A pull tab is a game of chance made out of a paper card with perforated break-open tabs, the inside of which is covered or otherwise hidden from view to conceal a set of numbers, letters or symbols, some of which have been designated, in advance, as prize winners. Pull tabs are commonly known as tickets, break opens or charity game tickets. Pull tabs are also know as instant bingo tickets, break-opens, tear-offs, pickles, cherries, lucky 7’s, peel-offs, bell jars, Nevadas or club tickets.
A gaming ticket printed on lightweight paper, folded and held by a strip of colored tape, containing numerals or symbols. They are usually sold in a jar or container thus the term “jar ticket”. These were the precursor to pull tab tickets.
Jar tickets are much smaller than pull tabs and do not allow enough room to list the prizes, so a flare or point of sale promotion piece accompanies the tickets. This flare describes the game and denotes the winning payouts.

The black and yellow seal on each deal of pull tabs & jar tickets is the NAFTM (National Association of Fundraising Ticket Manufacturers) seal. This seal means that the pull tab has been produced to meet standards set by the association. If this seal is broken, the box could have been tampered with and should not be sold.
A heavy paper card used in the play of pull tabs, jar tickets, tip boards and coin boards. It contains a seal or seals which, when removed or opened, reveal predesignated winning numbers, letters or symbols. These pull tab games include instant winners, and further the chance to win using “hold” tickets. Once the box of tickets is completely sold, the game operator opens the seal(s). The player holding the number that appears under the seal will win the indicated prize.
A progressive game is a seal card game with a designated jackpot that, if not won, is carried forward and added to the jackpot of the subsequent deal(s) of the game until the jackpot is won.
