Play Cards

Load. Swipe. Win!

With Play Cards there’s no need to rummage for cash and coins to play games! Simply charge your Play Card in-store at a kiosk, at the front desk, or load points on the go from your phone. You decide how much money to put on it, and because it’s reusable, it can be recharged at any time. Your winnings are stored until you’re ready to redeem them for prizes.

What is a Play Card?

You choose the amount of money you want to put on your Play Card. Plus, you can store your winning tickets on your card until you're ready to cash them in for prizes. Play Cards can be purchased at any Big Thrill Factory location.
