What Are Online Scratchies?

Scratch card games (or scratchies as we know them better in NZ) are one of the more well-known types of pokies around. The traditional scratch card is a chance-based game that has been around for a very long time. Also referred to as “instant win games,” scratchies are played by locating the lucky symbol buried behind a layer that must be scratched off to reveal it. This is a foil layer when using physical scratch cards. When you come online to play online scratch cards, it is a digital graphic layer that needs to be scratched off by clicking on it.

Similar to online slots or pokies, online scratchies typically require you to match winning symbols in a line. These games usually only require three symbols to be matched to win though.

Scratch and Win

You can noramlly play scratch card games offline in the form of lottery games. New Zealand Lottery’s “Instant Kiwi” scratch card games offer players instant wins from scratchies costing as little as $1. The instant prizes start from $1 and go up to $250,000.

Online scratch cards are available from various online outlets as well. You can also get them here at Betiton™. You can click and play one of our exclusive online scratchies right away!

If you win an online scratchie game you’ll know the value of you prize because each of the symbols will have the value they are worth as part of the symbol.

Unlike winning big prizes on jackpot slots, there are sometimes time limits to scratch cards. This applies, in particular, to cards purchased in shops. So, it’s important that NZ players take a look at the terms and conditions to check if there is a time frame for collecting any prizes that have been won. In terms of physical scratchies, this can be as long as six months, but failure to claim your prize within this time will see you forfeit it.

This generally isn’t such an issue for online scratchies, since when you win anything with one, your account is usually credited instantly with that win, with no need for you to take any action to claim it from your end. For lotto scratch cards it’s also important to see if the main jackpot has already been won as it may not even be worth buying that card. This never happens online though, as the scratchies you play will always have the online casino jackpot available for you to win.

Playing Scratch Card Games

Scratch card games are very popular for several reasons. The first is that scratch card games are purely games of chance and do not require you to have any amazing pokies skills. They are really easy and straightforward. Instead of worrying about bet types all you need to do is point and click.

Another reason for their popularity is the simple fact that they are cheap to play. You can often find scratchies available for just a few cents per card. There are more expensive ones though, where you can buy them for $5 or even $10 per card. These higher priced scratch cards will usually have much bigger wins available, but it doesn’t mean that there’s a higher probability of revealing the matching symbols.

As far as scratch card game strategy goes, it can be a good idea to purchase them in bulk. Doing so may result in a discount for lotto scratchies but what’s best is that it gives you a larger chance of winning the jackpot. The interesting thing about this strategy is that online scratchies pay out bigger jackpots than lotto scratchies. That would mean that online players don’t have to spend as much for a potentially larger payout.

Additionally, they’re simple to play between sessions of more stressful pokies and casino games such as poker or blackjack, providing your brain a brief vacation.

How to Play Online Scratchies

Lotto scratchies and online scratchies alike feature hidden symbols that need to be revealed. Scratching your chosen boxes and matching three symbols will get you an instant prize. Scratchies can be played either in demo mode for free or in real money mode with a pay table that lists all possible winning scratch combinations and payouts.

There are all kinds of different scratch card themes and so each will have a different set of winning symbols (as well as winning conditions). In some online scratch cards, you will need to match a set number of a particular symbol – such as an image of a character or a symbol from the movie, franchise, or theme that it is part of – in order to get your winnings. In others, you only need to scratch off one line of symbols. The instructions for winning in a scratch card game can be seen within a game.

However, scratchies can offer a some different options. In the Slapshot! scratchie, there is a “Scratch All” button that allows you to scratch off all of the symbols on the card! You can also use the “Autoplay” feature to play up to 99 scratchies at the same time. There is also a “Shuffle” feature that will shuffle all your scratchies.

Scratch Card Rules

When it comes to online scratchies, the rules are relatively similar to other pokies and lottery games. Depending on the scratch card, you might have to check how many symbols you are allowed to scratch off or whether there are any rules as to which section of the scratchie you can reveal. For physical scratchies this can be particularly important as some games will only let you scratch off three symbols. If you scratch off more then you can actually void your scratch card so even if you did win a prize you may not be able to claim it.

Generally, this is not the issue for online scratchies as you can either scratch off the symbols one by one, or simply reveal all of the card by clicking the ‘reveal all’ button. However, it’s always worth a quick check so that you don’t get caught out.

Scratchies also have a lower player age limit when compared to games like real money online blackjack. At just 16 years old you are allowed to purchase a physical scratch card, however online casinos still require you to be 18 or over to open an account.

Although the gameplay of scratchies is identical across the board, every individual scratchie has its own set of unique rules and prices. The main rule for online scratchies is that you just have enough funds in your account to be able to pay for each card.

Scratch Card Winning Symbols

All you need to do is reveal the symbols and the game is over. Similar to other online luck-based games, online scratchies can come in a wide variety of themes and with top prizes of different amounts available to win. This means that you have a wide range of choices available to you when you decide to pick one to play.

How to Win at Scratch Card Games

Winning at scratch card games is a little harder than it is on other games. As it is with online roulette, scratchies are all about luck, so there aren’t really any strategies you can implement in order to push things in your favour. It’s also not possible to implement betting strategies that you would otherwise do in other luck-based games. Instead, in order to succeed with these types of games, you need to carefully select the scratchie you want to play. As a starting point we suggest taking a look at your budget as this will determine which cards you can actually purchase and play.

Look around as a lot of instant win scratchies can be bought with a discount when you bulk buy, which can increase your profits over time if you are lucky to get some wins. Other scratchies work a bit like pokies in that you can bet different amounts each time you play. It’s also worth checking the payout rates listed for each game. Some have better odds than others, so choose wisely to give yourself the best start. It’s not always smart to pick a scratchie just because it has a big prize.

Scratch Card Odds

Every scratchie comes with its own odds. For online scratchies these can be seen as the Return to Player (RTP) percentage which tells you the percentage of wagered money that will be returned to the player over time in this particular game. Each scratchie has a different RTP.

Our Slapshot! scratchie has an RTP of 95.00% which means that for every $1 you spend on it, you will get an average of 95 cents back over time. However, bear in mind that you would need to play this online scratchie at least a million times for this to happen. This is because RTP is calculated over tens of thousands of plays.

Scratchie Payouts

Scratchies also come with different prizes and payouts. These can range from a few hundred dollars to a ten thousand dollar jackpot.

The amount that you bet may have an impact on the payout you receive from an online scratchie. Some scratchies offer fixed payouts that are independent of your wagering amount. Others, on the other hand, pay out generously based on a multiplier that is increased by the amount you bet. When you begin playing a scratchie game, these will be displayed, allowing you to check before you begin to play and buy cards.

Types of Online Scratchies

Online scratchies come in a few distinct varieties that you can play. Each has a distinct style of play and a lot of opportunity for winning.

Jackpot Scratchies

Jackpot scratchies are online scratchies that can reward you with a big prize – sometimes as high as $1 million. These jackpots might range in size, but they often have a high profit margin compared to the prize of the original card. However, keep in mind that these games typically cost a bit more each card, so keep that in mind while setting a budget.

Bonus Scratchies

Bonus scratchies will win you casino rewards that can only be used within the casino in the form of casino bonuses. Bonus scratch cards can often be found as part of a live casino game. You can win deposit bonuses, free spins, extra spins or other types of bonuses that can then be used on other pokies.
