Title: Seal card game and method of playing same

Abstract: A "lottery-type" game of chance for one or more players employs break open tickets (10) which have printed on them a matrix (38) of characters (40), such as a 3.times.3 number matrix. Each ticket includes a unique pattern of numbers, which differs from others in a set of the tickets. The numbers (40) are covered, prior to play, with a removable cover member (32), such as a flap or scratch off seal. The game can be played in a variety of different ways, dependent upon the pattern (such as any line, the letter "X", or coverall) which is chosen as the winning pattern. The game is played by employing a random number generator. The players dab their ticket if the number generated is present on their ticket. The player who first completes the game, by competing the preselected pattern from the numbers called, wins the game. The winning face can be verified by a verification number (62) which is printed on each card. Since no price is listed on the ticket, no payout is established and a proprietor can design its own game.
