English translation:pull tabs
Explanation:
Pull tabs are the lottery method where you buy a ticket and peel up a piece of paper (the tab) covering the results on that ticket.

A punch board is where a cardboard form has some number of entries on it. You buy one of those remaining on the board and punch it out. The piece that you punch out tells you whether you are a winner and what prize you have one.

Hope this helps. In California, we have scratchers where the win area of the ticket is covered by a film that must be scratched off with the edge of a coin to determine whether you have won.
