In this respect, they work just like physical scratch cards, but the online versions often have bonus rounds that you can take advantage of.

Online vs Offline Scratch Cards

Fundamentally, online scratch off tickets and offline scratch cards are the same. They’re both instant win games with a range of themes that can offer sizeable payouts if luck is on your side. However, there are some differences to be aware of:

  • Online scratch games are virtual and can be played on any device connected to the internet, such as a desktop or mobile device, often through a mobile app. Whereas regular scratch cards are physical and must be purchased from selected brick-and-mortar stores.

  • Online scratch cards allow you to bet different amounts, depending on your bankroll. Traditional scratch cards can be purchased for a set amount.

  • Some online scratch cards have in-built bonus games that offer you the chance to increase the size of your wins.

  • Rather than scratching segments off a physical scratch card, online versions require you to tap the segment on a screen to reveal what’s behind it.

  • Online and mobile casinos such as Stake.com offer demo version of the scratch card game, enabling players to "try before they buy", which is not possible with real scratch cards.

How to Play Online Scratch Cards

Digital versions of scratch cards are simple to play. Here are the steps you can follow to get started:

  1. Decide which types of scratch cards you want to play, choosing from a wide selection of games with various styles, themes, and bonus features.

  2. Adjust the bet amount, considering the bet limits and your available bankroll.

  3. Follow the instructions and select the segments to “scratch” to see if you win any instant prizes.

  4. Cash out your winnings or leave them in your account to fund future online gaming at Stake.com.

How do Online Scratch Cards Work?

Creators of online scratch cards utilise random number generators (RNGs) to determine the outcome of each game. This ensures that the outcomes are truly random and you have a fair chance of winning.

When you select the game you wish to play, you can adjust the bet amount and click on the segments you want to reveal.

Depending on the game’s rules, you might win by matching three, four, or five symbols, for instance. You can find important information about the scratch card in the game description, which contains things like RTP, max win, and any bonus features available.

Online Scratch Card Strategies, Tips & Tricks

If you’re keen to try online scratch cards at Stake.com for the first time, here are some helpful tips that might increase your chances of winning:

  • Scratch cards – like most online casino games – are games of luck. They use RNGs (Random Number Generators) to determine each game’s outcome, so remember that you can win or lose every time you pick a segment.

  • Always look at a scratch card’s RTP before playing. The higher the RTP, the more it pays out over time.

  • Some online scratch cards have bonus games you can unlock to enhance your winning chances, so it’s worth searching them out for improved gameplay.

  • You can adjust your bet amount each time you play a scratch card. Read the game description to find out the wagering requirements, minimum deposits, and betting limits and adjust the amount depending on your bankroll. The higher your bets, the higher your potential payouts, but remember to gamble responsibly and within your limits.

How to Win Instant Lottery Games Online

The old saying goes, “You need to be in it to win it.” This is accurate for all instant lottery games online, including scratch cards. Although you need to recognise that these are games of luck, if you don’t enter, you can’t win.

If you place your bets and select the correct segments, you have as good a chance as anyone of winning instant prizes when playing online scratch cards and instant lottery games.

Popular Online Scratch Card Games

Online Scratch Card Odds, Payouts & RTP

Before deciding which scratch card game to play, it makes sense to regard its theoretical return to player percentage (RTP).

Offline scratch cards often have a relatively low RTP – 70% - 80% - but online scratch cards typically range from 85% - 95%.

While this is lower than most slot games and table games, the fact that instant wins are available is a huge draw to many online players.

You should also consider the RTP alongside the game’s maximum win for a good idea of how much you could bank if the scratch card works in your favour.

How Much Can You Win?

The amount you can win when playing scratch cards at Stake.com depends on how much you bet, as the win value is typically tied to the bet amount. It’s not uncommon for online scratch cards to offer huge wins, upwards of 10,000x the stake.
