Ammo as a game piece

I went to a local Friends of NRA dinner. One of the fundraising games was this panel with plastic bullets hidden in the wood. You lift a round and if the bullet is blue, you pay $20 for a gun raffle ticket, and if white, you get a ticket for free. I pulled 2 whites, but did not get a gun at the end. C’est la vie.
For our friends abroad:
Friends of NRA is a general fundraiser with dinner, and attendees play a bunch of games and raffles, in which you may win a gun or gun-related item, but, as all lottos, mostly people lose and only a lucky one gets a gun. The idea is to provide money for NRA.
