Online Scratchcards Really Do Exist

It shouldn’t surprise me, but it does. Who else out there doesn’t know that an online scratchcard exists?

Recently, I met up with some friends for dinner and as we were walking towards the restaurant, one of the ladies broke away in a fast trot. ‘She has to find a newsagent,’ explained her boyfriend. ‘She wants to buy a scratchcard.’

What, a paper one? In a season traditionally commemorated by reinforcing or questioning the existence of a certain man in a red suit, I’d like to take the opportunity reassure people than an online scratchcard is something that actually exists. For all the technological advancements of the day, it often surprises me how many people don’t know that. The look of bemusement that crosses their face as I explain that you can access these games online is second only to the look of confusion that occurs when someone hears baccarat rules for the first time.


Yes these wonderful games exist online, yes you can play them with your mouse and no playing them online isn’t any less fun than scratching real tickets. It is in fact cheaper, faster, easier, more accessible and better for the environment. Most enthusiastic scratchcard fans don’t realise that sites will give you bonus money to play for free and because they’re online, there are hundreds if not thousands that can be ‘stocked’ by a single site. In addition, if you just love the scratch then you’ll be delighted to know that you can lower your wager so that each card costs as little as 10p – ten times the fun!

Granted it may seem different – but the world was flat until someone took a boat trip, right? Why not live a little, take a chance this Christmas (when all the shops are shut anyway) and head to our favourite sites for your free scratchcard games.
