Here's a proof of concept for a Bingo game. I am working on new designs. Comments?

Hopefully, we'll soon have easy ways of importing base58 private keys into a wallet for the prize money. I'm exploring several venues for selling these cards, but mostly they will be used for charity fundraising.

This is not a bad idea... WHat are your methods you are using to create the scratch-offs and preventing light viewing?

I haven't researched light viewing so much yet. I'm still not sure it is legal to sell games like this even for charity in the US. I'm sure that the scratch off material itself is very light proof. The cards I'm making are just a mock-up for fun. This project requires production methods not available from traditional scratch-off printing services. I'll need a customized design and strict protocols will need to be followed. This can be done on a small scale easily enough, but it's very labor intensive. I know what I want to make it work and scalable, but have limited resources at the moment for development. I'm not in a big hurry, because the Bitcoin tools are still too immature.

What I hope to do is get local business to sell these games on behalf of charities. Winners would be able to redeem them anywhere, even at home. People can have parties playing these games and shop online with their winnings. My only real issue is its legality. It's a little too much like lottery games even though in many US states Bingo is legal for charity purposes.

I am seeing good progress in tool development so I thought a bump might help this thread.

Can you a little bit explain how this works?

If there is a private key under the scratch layer, it makes no difference how they play the bingo game, right?

That's right. It's a standard scratch-off game with a bingo theme. It may satisfy the legal requirements as the only way to legally to use scratch off games in some states for non-profit fundraising. I'm researching more about the possibilities and legalities.

Interesting concept.  Did you ever get anywhere with this?  I'd love to hear any progress you've made since you last posted.

Nice idea - I was going to my a digital version of this for my site

How does this one work?

Do you send out the paper /w the private key and numbers attached and if they win they win a loaded private key?
