The origins of scratch cards
The origins of the humble scratchcard are far more recent than one may think. Although variants of the scratchcards have been around for many years, these early formats used manual randomisation techniques and as a result were difficult to produce in bulk and were unreliable. The earliest form of computer-based randomisation for scratch cards was produced in 1974 by the Scientific Games Corporation. However, it was not until 1987 that Astro-Med patented the instant scratch-off lottery ticket that exploded with the popularity it now enjoys.
Unlike many other casino games, scratchcards were not initially adopted by early online casino operators in the 1990s. In fact, it was not until as recently as 2010 that online scratchcards started to be adopted by online casino operators. However, its eventual introduction spawned a whole new sector of the market with casino operators launching specifically to cater to this market.
How to play online scratchcards
The mechanics to play online scratchcards are much the same as their paper stock alternatives.
A player will purchase a card and then scratch out blocks, or picks objects from a selection. If the card reveals a winning combination that amount is instantly credited to the player’s account. Online scratchcards offer, arguably the simplest form of casino entertainment to players looking for something quick and easy.
Although there are numerous similarities between real-world and online scratchcards, there also distinct differences. Two of the most notable differences are the online scratchcards’ themes and gameplay. The restrictions placed on the printed medium mean that there is very little variation between different scratchcards. However, there are very few creative restrictions on their online counterparts. As a result, online scratchcards come in a variety of fun and interesting themes with bright colourful graphics, exciting animation and engaging sound effects.
