Sharky Bar trying to trap customers inside for at least an hour on Friday nights

Post by Cam Nivag » Tue Dec 11, 2018 2:28 am

Sharky Bar has been doing a Joker draw for a while now, and I just saw an online ad for it. The draw happens Friday nights at 10:30 pm, and buying 3 tickets gets you a free beer, BUT they stop ticket sales at 9:30 p.m. Why wouldn't they just sell tickets and collect money right up until the draw happens, like Walkabout did?

Obviously, they are trying to force people to stay in there for at least an hour by showing up before 9:30 p.m. to buy tickets and then waiting around until after 10:30 p.m. for the drawing.

I hear that they have at least gotten rid of the live music, so the hour your spend there twiddling your thumbs waiting for the draw might actually be tolerable.

Well that sucks, but if it was over 10K with only a few tickets left, I'd hang around, music or no music.

You don't how the game's played, do you? I saw it once and the chance of winning at that time (about 150 tickets were sold) was about 1:4.800.

Even if you would have spend 150$ and bought all the tickets the chance was only 1:32. Better chances @ Naga.

That should have read cards left, not tickets.

From what I recall they take out one card, check it, and then put it back. That means you have to be there each and every time to remember which card is where to increase you chances. Unless you've seen the 'non jokers' the odds are the same even at the end of the game.

Unless they play differently to the Walkabou, the card selected by the punter each draw remains face-up.

Not @ sharky's.
Then their website is wrong.

7) All cards turned over during the course of the game will be returned face-up to the locked cabinet. The cabinet will be locked again & the winner of the draw that night will sign the security seals attached to the cabinet padlocks. At the conclusion of each weekly draw, the barrel will be emptied in preparation for the next weeks draw.

That sounds the same as Walkabout apart from security seals.
