There are a lot of different types of online scratch cards. The game concept has no specific rules in terms of layout and size. There are scratch cards with only a few slots, but also very elaborate cards. It all depends on how a game is set up. The basics are the same online as offline: scratch open the covered boxes to see if you have a winning combination of symbols.
The price of an online scratchcard varies enormously. Cheap scratchcards are available from as little as €0.25, while the price can go up to €10 or even more.
Scratch Cards have been around since 1974. They have become very popular due to the fact that you can win instantly instead of waiting for a lottery draw. Starting in the late 80’s lotteries started printing more expensive scratch cards that could make you a millionaire. From 2010 on, different casinos (like us!) started offering online variants of the popular cards.
Most scratch cards are based on the principle that three of the same symbols on the card will indeed yield that prize. In other variants, the revealed symbols must match symbols in another play area.
Online scratch cards are currently not (yet) legal in all legalised gambling markets. Some providers however do have games that are very similar. A similar game is for example, Bubbles.
The scratch cards you buy in shops may only be offered by the lottery, as this is a real lottery. For scratch cards online, the outcome is determined by an RNG, just like digital table games and slots. So as long as it is not a lottery, but a ‘slot in a different jacket’, anyone who follows the other rules may offer the scratch cards.

To play scratch or not to play? Don’t get stuck in doubt. Just try the demo’s and decide after. Of course, we would like you to play scratch games in both demo and for real. It is up to you if you want to play scratch, when and where. If you decide not to play scratch after all, don’t worry, we offer many different games based on categories here.
But do give the scratch demo a try.
Some gambling licences for Online casinos are only for offering casino games. Those games must comply with all sorts of rules. The outcome of each game must be completely random. In the case of roulette or slots, for each spin the probability of an outcome must be completely random and equal.
This is not (always) the case with scratch cards and, as such, they are not allowed under certain online casino licences.
Betting machines work with a random number generator (RNG). An RNG is a computer that generates random numbers. Each number generated by the RNG corresponds to a specific combination on the reels. The computer in the slot machine ensures that that particular combination is displayed. A scratch card does not work on the basis of an RNG, but the prize pool of a series of scratch cards is drawn beforehand. So your chances of winning a prize are also not the same with each scratch card you play.
You need to find symbols that are the same. This varies a lot from one scratch card to another. The advice is to always scratch away the entire surface. So don’t stop if you already have a winning combination, because who knows, you might win more.
As long as you play at casinos with a valid gambling licence, all games have been checked for fairness – including casino scratch cards.
How high the prize is that you can win with casino scratch cards depends on the scratch card. There are scratch cards where you can win €1 million or even more.
