Popular game variations
Scratch tickets come in different shapes and forms, each sporting unique gameplay elements and win-conditions to be met.
Here are the most popular variations of scratch cards:
|1 Slot Game-themed
|In this variation, the scratch-off panels display slot reels. To secure a win, you need to reveal a winning combination of symbols that align with the slot's payline.
|2 Multiple Chance Scratch Cards
| • Players start by scratching a panel to reveal a number or symbol.
• Once revealed, it will take on the role of the winning number.
• To win, players must proceed to scratch multiple panels to reveal whether or not the hidden symbols or numbers match the ones that were initially exposed.
|3 Instant Win
|These take the format of traditional scratch tickets. The player will remove the acrylic to find out whether they have won or lost.
|In this variant, players hope to line up a series of symbols to receive the top prize. The panels of these cards are larger than in other versions. This allows for more space to accommodate a potential symbol line-up.
|5 Progressive Jackpot
|Progressive jackpot scratch cards function similarly to progressive slots. A portion of other players' wagers contributes to a prize pool, causing the jackpot to increase until a fortunate player secures a win. After the jackpot has been won, it resets and starts to accumulate once more.
|6 Blackjack-inspired Scratch Cards
|When engaging with blackjack-themed scratch cards, you will need to uncover both the dealer’s cards and your own by scratching off the respective panels. If your cards total to 21 before the dealer's, you win a prize.
|7 Roulette-themed Scratch Cards
|With roulette scratch cards, the goal is to scratch off panels that will reveal the bets made on the roulette table and another panel showing where the ball landed on the roulette wheel. Any successful bets on the roulette table earn you a prize.
|8 Bingo-themed Scratch Cards
|Bingo scratch cards require players to scratch off the panels displaying the caller’s numbers and panels revealing your own bingo cards. If your numbers match those called, you achieve a bingo win on the scratch card.
