Once all required details have been given, the Poker Run event will be visible for all the other The Poker Run app users. Users can register themselves for the event and the organizer can checkout how many people there is going to be participating.
When the Poker Run is about to start, the app starts registering visits on starting point. Once user visit on starting point has been registered, she or he can start collecting cards from the card checkpoints. The app shows these checkpoint locations for the users. When user arrives to the card checkpoint, the app deals her or him a card and registers visit on that specific checkpoint. User can continue to the next checkpoint.
