Terminal Functionality

G. System Initialization

QUICK TIP: The Tap50:50 application will undergo a software check to ensure the software is authorized and hasn’t been corrupted. The terminal will need cellular or a Wi-Fi connection to enable this feature otherwise the software check will not pass.

H. Logging In


Upon successful bootup, after the software integrity screen, you will see a starting menu. You may see several options.

QUICK TIP: The Admin menu only appears if the terminal has already been logged into a terminal. You can closeout the terminal from the Admin menu or you can print the specifics of the raffle.

1. Login, or

2. Recover

3. Scan

4. Verify ticket

5. Admin (sometimes)


The reason you have 4-5 options is because the Admin option only shows on login if you already have a raffle logged in and not closed out.


Scan allows scanning of driver’s licenses for age verification purposes. This is usually just used for practicing how to scan. Admin leads to special administrator functions which will be covered later.

H1 Logging in Steps

4. If you entered the login ID and the login password correctly you will be logged into the server and it will request that you enter a new password. Make the new password something you will easily remember because if you forget your password and need to login again the raffle administrator will have to change your password.


5. The terminal now attempts to speak with the server. The terminal will either be authenticated or not authenticated by the server. The terminal can only be authenticated if it is within cellular or Wi-Fi range AND you entered the login information correctly. If the terminal is authenticated it downloads the raffle details, prints a raffle summary, and displays the Menu Options screen.
