  •  1.History of scratch cards

    The first scratch card type game appeared in 1974 when Scientific Games Corporation invented the first computer generated ticket. More lottery-esque in style than today’s modern tickets, it was an instant success. Fourteen years later, the patent for the first scratch-off lottery ticket was secured by a company called ‘Astro Med’, based in Rhode Island, and the modern scratch card game as you know it was created.

    Like today’s game, the original scratch card required players to scratch off symbols to reveal if they had won a prize. Prizes were usually won by matching three or more symbols, with more symbols or symbols of a higher rank awarding a bigger prize. All scratch cards had the same basic rules, but differed in terms of their look and feel and the size of the prizes they could award. Scratch cards grew in popularity across the globe, thanks to their simplicity and promise of big rewards, and are now a global phenomenon.

    Online casino scratch cards have made things even more exciting, with more games available around the clock and the overall game enhanced by exciting animation and graphics, as well as even bigger prizes. Some scratch cards boast an optional side progressive jackpot to play for, offering some of the richest rewards available online.
