I have 26 points towards them. Anyone know what they are?

I've earned 2, but I'm waiting to redeem them until I receive my table top.

Has anyone redeemed theirs, and if so, what did you receive?

I think they are like lottery scratch tickets where you can win money. Although it's done electronically. In the Terms & Conditions it tells you how to claim free scratch cards.

I've redeemed them. I think you get two of them for every 300 points, one from bell rock gaming and another from TGC. Their just like scratch tickets, scatch and match 4 boxes to win. The TGC one was for a dollar and the bell rock one was for 100, I didn't win on either though. If you get an error while trying to redeem them you might have to disable your popup blocker.

OK... I read the entire Terms and Conditions page. Here's a clif notes version of what I found to be the most important:

"The Promotional Period is from 18h00 EST/23h00 GMT, July 1, 2004 to 18h00 EST/23h00 GMT, July 31, 2004."

Looks like this promo is only valid through this Sat.


"Branded Scratch Cards are only valid for use and eligible for a prize win until and including August 31, 2004. "

If you earn one, be sure to use it prior to Aug 31st.



"at any of the Participating Poker Rooms: for every 300 Bonus Redemption Points ("BRPs") earned, a Player will receive a Branded Scratch Card "

That would mean you get 1 branded scratch card AND 1 Belle Rock scratch card per 300 BRP's earned.

I went ahead and did my (4) scratch cards.

The Belle Rock cards are close to impossible to win on. There are 16 spots to scratch. Of the 16 spots, there are only 4 winning spots. You must scratch all 4 winning spots before hitting a no winner spot.

My statistics are a bit rusty, but I came up with a 1 in 43680 chance of winning on one of these cards.



The Gaming Club scratchers are much easier to win on. There are 25 spots and 20 of them winning spots. You scratch 3 spots. Hit any 3 of the possible 20 winning spots and win.

I won both of TGC scratchers, but only won 1 "credit" per scratcher. I am unclear what this "Credit" is good for. Anyone know?

Confirmed. I just checked my account and it's now $2 larger than it was when I stopped playing on Sunday night.

Of my three cards all three from TGC have been 1 credit (won once). Of the three from Bell Rock cards I had one for a 100 and two for 50 (lost all). The odds of winning the Bell Rock cards are very unlikely, as posted in another thread, thus the higher bonus.

I can't seem to claim my scratch cards. I enter my account # and password and it just takes me to another blank login page and I can't log in there.

I called them and they said something about re-installing Flash. I disabled the popup blocker as some else had posted. Maybe cause I'm trying this in Firefox. I'll give it a shot at home on IE.

High School stats used to be my favourite course! Yup those are the odds.

Is that the max you can win for the TGC scratch cards, $1?
