Sample Cards from this Product:

Our randomization process is a state-of-the-art computerized process that immediately and randomly pairs people who have purchased spots with a random teams (or other list type item that are currently being used). Since this is computerized there is no data entry or bulky spreadsheets to take up a lot of time and risk of making errors. Once a break starts the randomizer will immediately start, pair the spots and the teams together and display the results immediately on the screen.

Filler spots are an inexpensive CHANCE at getting into the main break. If you buy a filler spot that is good for 1, 2 or 3 regular break spots then you have a 1 in 10 chance of getting that many spots in the main break. If you buy a filler spot that is good for 10 regular break spots then you have a 1 in 15 chance of getting 10 spots in the main break. The more filler spots you buy the better chance of winning regular break spots. The fewer filler spots you buy you have less of a chance, but an amazing deal if you win.
