What You Need to Know About Online Scratch Cards

If you enjoy quick, easy-to-play games of chance with the potential for big wins, you should check out the digital evolution of a much-loved game: online scratch cards! Find out everything you need to know about these new digital versions of the classic gambling experience.

What are online scratch cards?

Many people will be familiar with scratch cards, a quick and easy way to gamble and find out if luck is on your side. In the past, you bought a card, pulled out a coin (or another similarly hard object) and scratched away at the surface of the card to discover if you’d won anything. The online version of this classic gambling game hasn’t changed much, but now you can play at your leisure!

How do you play?

If you want to play scratch cards online, the first thing you need to do is find an online casino or site that offers a variety of games that you are interested in and verify the site is legitimate and safe

Once you have made sure the site’s security and game offering is up to scratch, you just need to follow a few simple steps to register and verify your identity so that your account is ready for you to play. The good news is The Phone Casino is a no deposit mobile casino, so you don’t have to make a deposit when registering on the site.

With an account up and running, you simply need to choose which game you want to play, select it and start playing! Each scratch game is very similar in that all you need to do is buy a card and then reveal your symbols to find out if you’ve won. With the symbols revealed, a digital scratch card will let you know if you have any winning combinations instantaneously and place the winnings into your online casino account.

Many games mimic the traditional way of “scratching” a card, using your mouse to swipe from left to right to reveal your symbols. But some go for more creative twists, with clicks that flip over parts of a card or even cause explosions that reveal what symbols you have on the card. Be sure to try out a game or look for a review of it online to find out how the game plays.

Scratch card games you can play at The Phone Casino

Now that you understand how to start playing, you’re probably interested in the many fun titles we have available at our online casino. Here’s a small taste of what you can play when you register:

Cherry Blast Scratch

Cherry Blast Scratch from Iron Dog Studio is a fun, bright, and upbeat scratch card title. Unlike many other scratch games, Cherry Blast Scratch allows you to adjust the value of your bet. If you then get three symbols, your winnings will be multiplied by a certain amount, making this a hybrid between online slots and scratch cards. These multipliers go from x1 (a single red cherry) all the way up to x500 (two golden cherries). 

To reveal the symbols in the game, you must click or tap each cherry bomb, which then explodes to reveal the symbol beneath. There are nine cherry bombs on a 3×3 grid, and if you take too long, they automatically blow up to reveal the symbols beneath!

Gold Rush

Pragmatic Play are the developers of Gold Rush, which sees players enter a mine in the Wild West in search of riches. In this game, players begin by deciding how many cards they want to play. They can choose to buy 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 games, with the last two options offering a discount for buying so many cards upfront. Players stand a chance to win £1 to a maximum of £250,000! The game has the prize values hidden beneath the scratch surface on the card, so no need to learn any symbols and what they correlate to on the pay tables.

This feels more like a traditional scratch game, as players have to swipe their mouse (or finger) over the card to scratch at it and reveal their potential wins.

Luxor Scratch

Developers PariPlay bring you this exciting Egyptian-themed scratch game. In this title, you explore an Egyptian pyramid with the goal of finding the riches of the Pharaohs. Like Cherry Blast, this game uses multipliers and symbols, with the smallest win starting at x1 (the number 10 symbol) and a maximum win of x5,000 (the golden scarab symbol).

Where Luxor Scratch is different from the other games we’ve looked at so far, is that it randomly selects four winning symbols for each card. This means that you don’t have to get multiple matching symbols as you would with other scratch games, but only one – as long as it appears in the winning symbol row!

Players can also change the amount they want to wager to suit their budget, and then scratch away to reveal the symbols on their card.

Irish Eyes 2

If you like games with a “luck of the Irish” theme, you’ll want to try out Irish Eyes 2 from Nextgen Gaming. Does fortune lie behind the beautiful face of an Irish lass? As with some of the other games we’ve looked at, you need to match three symbols to land a multiplier, which starts at x1 (an old smoking pipe) and ends with a maximum win of x1,000. As an added bonus, players can also win free games if they find three pots of gold. 

Players can also adjust the amount they want to wager when they play, and simply have to click the different parts of the picture to reveal the symbols that are hidden in each square.

The Codfather Scratch

Another exciting scratch game from NextGen Gaming, The Codfather is virtually identical to Irish Eyes 2, but with different graphics. So if you aren’t so easily swayed by a beautiful Irish woman, and prefer your gambling games on the sillier side, be sure to take a look at this game that combines fish and mobsters to deliver a more tongue-in-cheek scratch experience.
