There are many different types and themes of scratchcard games — some offer one chance to win for your stake, and others offer up to 5 games on the card.
Scratchcard prizes are usually cash, and there are many different scratchcard themes to choose from. There are some instant win versions from top slot games like Cleopatra Scratch, Emoji Scratch and Wish Upon a Jackpot Scratch. These popular games are styled in the same way and will feature the same graphics and characters that you’ll have seen on the equivalent online slots game. If you haven’t tried the reel version, why not give it a spin?
- What are online scratchcards?
Online scratchcards are similar to their paper counterparts but with a few extra benefits. For instance, traditional and online scratchcards are easy to pick up and play, but if you win with an online scratchcard, you’ll receive your cash instantly! Instant win scratchcards are available at different prices to suit your pocket, usually ranging from £1 to £10.
The difference between paper and online scratchcards is primarily mechanics. Instead of scratching a card to reveal your numbers on a printed scratchcard, online scratchcards use Random Number Generators (RNG) to get your card’s number combination.

- What are the odds of winning on a scratchcard?
The probability of winning is up to pure chance with scratchcards, since there’s no skill you can learn or improve on to increase your chances of taking home a prize.
Like online slots, all instant win games will have an indicated Return To Player (RTP). An RTP is a value that indicates what return you are likely to get. For example, on a game with a 95% RTP, you may get back £0.95p for every £1.00 you wager.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you’ll get a return with every play.ather, this is the calculated chance of a return over a long period of play. So the next time you’re choosing a scratchcard, take a look at the indicated RTP.

- How do you play online scratchcards?
Online scratchcards are very easy to pick up and play, but work differently depending on whether you buy your scratchcard on a desktop or mobile device. If you’re playing on a desktop, you can click on the different sections and wiggle your mouse to ‘scratch’ off the panel.
On mobile devices, you can use your finger to show your numbers or symbols instead. Most games also include a ‘reveal’ button that shows all the symbols at once, which gives you an instant result. Check out our guide on how to play scratchcards for a more detailed explanation.
The rules of each online scratchcard differ slightly. For example, the game The Incredible Balloon Machine has a feature where you can inflate a balloon to increase your credits. The Voice has a cash ladder system that increases your rewards. To win, you’ll need to have a set number of matching symbols, according to the game’s rules. These symbols are generated by an RNG, which gives them all the same chance of appearing.
