Best Virtual Tricky Tray of 2021

Completely Virtual / All On-Line or
Drop & Go with Live Streamed Drawing

St. Michael School
St. Michael School - Cranford, NJ - October 23, 2021

"It was a combination of how well organized it was run
(especially during Covid) and the variety of baskets up for grabs.
I greatly appreciated the flexibility offered to go and drop off my tickets during a window of several hours and not have to be present
for the calling of the winners.
The variety of prizes were of good quality/value and paired
up nicely in bundles. There was so much to choose from that
I had to go back and buy more sheets for each level."

"The number of prizes and quality of items is great.
The Live drawing is fun and efficient.
I love that I can drop tickets any time and not be stuck all night
waiting to win. I enjoy watching the drawing at home."

"It was run very smooth.
They did a fantastic job with the virtual tricky tray"

"One of the best, most organized Tricky Trays around.
They have an amazing assortment of prizes across different price levels. Great drop & go format with an awesome live-stream pull.
Super organized prize pick-up.
