Cash Cow:

The Cash Cow is a unique way to present mystery prizes to players, that will be sure to spark some interest! Every hall looks for a way to add a revenue-producing game without adding time to the session, and Cash Cow is one option you can try at your hall. First, you need to number the tables. Second, develop a method of selecting tables—this can be by roll of dice or random number generator. Third, set up a ten-envelope area on a wall with monetary amounts in each envelope. Fourth, you will need two cows (statue, stuffed, plush—whatever you fancy). These will act as the “Cash Cows.”

Running the game is simple: players have the option to pay $1 at the POS to become eligible to be a Cash Cow game winner, thus providing extra revenue. Prior to the start of the first game, two tables are drawn and the stuffed (or statue) Cash Cows are placed on the tables. If a single winner calls Bingo at either of these Cash Cow tables, then they are eligible to pick one of the envelopes to find their prize. That envelope is then removed from play, and every two regular games the Cash Cows are each moved to another table. These games go on until all of the envelope prizes have been claimed.

This game can be executed with different details to make it more suitable for your hall, so be as creative as you’d like! Use one cow for a smaller crowd, or maybe three cows for a larger crowd. Offer gift cards as prizes instead of money, or vouchers for free game play.  Good luck!
