FOOTBALL CHANCE TM
If there is such a thing as a perfect fund raising idea, this is it!
Here are a few frequently asked questions about Football Chance™.
If you have a different question or comment, please
Q. Is this a raffle, and is it legal?
A. A raffle is generally a contest
in which participants purchase a ticket or “chance” at winning a prize. Football
Chance is a raffle.
Q. Am I guaranteed unlimited free updates for life?
A. Every purchaser is entitled
to free updates and upgrades for the life of this product. Updates may consist of
any combination of bug fixes (program errors) and enhancements. A CHECK FOR UPDATE
button is available on the registered software full version. While online (checking
email or surfing the web), clicking on this button will check for updates and transfer
to the download page if an update is found. In addition, registered users will receive
notification of updates and upgrades by email.
Q. When installing an Update, will I lose the current data file?
A. The update installation is a single .exe file that contains everything necessary to update the software. DO NOT uninstall any previous version, if you want to keep the current data file. This is important if you are currently running a Football Chance fundraiser.
Q. When calculating winners, can I accidentally use experimental changes?
A. When calculating winners, the Football Chance program will not use any changes made elsewhere, during the session, unless the changes were SAVED. Winners are calculated using the data prior to the last SAVE. This prevents accidental use of experimental data in calculating winners. Do not SAVE experimental data while a fundraiser is in progress!
Q. Are other currencies such as £ and € supported?
A. A future update will contain support
for the £ (pound) and the € (euro). The software will still be an English
Q. It is installed on my computer - is it possible to also install the program on another computer to serve as a back up?
A. Yes, it is certainly possible to
install the software on other computers. The manual says to make a backup of the
downloaded full version software (SETUP.EXE).
The backup can be used to load the software on any other computer. The only
restriction is that a new update can only be downloaded once, and the update
download can be done from any computer by using the registered email address and
password. Once a new update is downloaded and backed up, the backup can be used
to update the software on the other computer(s).
Q. I read your blog of 8/1/06 regarding printing the tickets, My original thought was to printed three fronts to a sheet, and then three backs; then cut sheet into three tickets. Is that possible or do we need to print the fronts, and then cut and then print each back one at a time?
A. Others wanted to print 3 fronts
and then print 3 backs on that sheet. We never thought about doing it that way,
and that cannot be done
at present. Ticket backs are printed one at a time. Maybe a future update will
allow that method, but it would be VERY difficult for us to implement. The only
acceptable method is to print the fronts, cut to size, and then feed a stack of
individual tickets into the printer to print the backs. As you saw in our blog, we
have the tickets cut and perforated at a print shop. That makes the process much
simpler, and the cost is negligible relative to the profit.
Q. Can a specific ticket or range of ticket numbers be reprinted? (This is important if the ticket does not print properly or is lost).
A. Yes, a single ticket or a range of tickets
can be printed. To print one ticket, the first ticket # and the last ticket # are
set to the desired ticket number.
Q. Can we get a status report during the season as to the grand prize total points to date by ticket?
A. Giving a Grand Prize
Preview of the total point standings has been incorporated into the software. That
feature will be available in the next software update, which will be released prior
to the 2007-2008 season.
