ONLINE SCRATCH CARDS
Online scratch cards are an exciting product that is available at Refuel Casino. Just like real scratch cards, online versions have a panel that you scratch away to reveal symbols or numbers. If these correspond to a prize, then you are an instant winner!
Scratch cards offer Canadian players instant gratification and the potential for big wins from small stakes. Many have better odds of winning than more traditional casino games, so they are well worth playing!
This page will give you all the information you need to get started.
HISTORY OF SCRATCH CARDS
While online scratch cards have been around since 2010 at online casinos, physical ones were launched in the 1970s.
Marketing expert John Koza and computer scientist Daniel Bower are credited with their invention. Massachusetts was the first state in America to offer them, and they immediately proved a huge success. They are widely available across Canada and worldwide now.
Online scratch cards have followed the way of online slots in many respects. There are hundreds of different types with fresh animations, cool graphics, multiple ways to win, bonus features, and amazing themes.
HOW TO PLAY ONLINE SCRATCH CARDS AT REFUEL CASINO
Just search for scratch cards in the search bar on the Games page, or head to the specific tab also found on the Games page.
You will find a wide selection from high-quality game providers like Hacksaw Gaming and Next Gen Gaming. At Refuel Casino, you can try them all for free in our demo mode.
This allows you to explore every game before deciding which one you want to try your luck at for real money. When you choose a game, you will either select your stake or buy a fixed-price ticket.
When you have either set your stake or ‘bought’ a ticket, simply hit the play button. Then use your finger or cursor (depending on what device you are playing) to ‘scratch’ the game panels and reveal the symbols underneath.
Some games also have a ‘scratch all’ button that reveals all symbols instantly without the need to scratch. So, if you can’t bear to wait, this option is for you!
Any winnings will be returned to you instantly. Typically, you need to match a set number of symbols to win a prize. For example, match three stars to get five times your stake back, or match three diamonds to get ten times your stake back.
Others will match numbers to prizes. So, reveal three 100s to win CAD $100, or match three 50s to win CAD $50.
Some cards have different requirements. You might need to ‘beat the dealer’ or ‘beat your opponent’ by revealing a higher number or bigger value symbol.
But whichever card you choose, you are guaranteed fun! In fact, many online scratch cards resemble online slots in their looks and gameplay.
Functions like re-hit play to go again and autoplay will be familiar to Canadian slots fans.
WHAT PRIZES CAN I WIN WITH ONLINE SCRATCH CARDS?
Scratch cards, both online and in real life, are popular because they offer the chance for huge prizes from a small stake. Some even have prizes worth millions of euros!
You will find a large range with different prices, stake options, and prizes at Refuel Casino. Open any game and see the game rules, prizes, and odds of winning under the hamburger menu or the info or settings button.
We recommend familiarizing yourself with all the rules and how the game works before you play. This makes for a much more enjoyable game where you know what to look out for!
Let’s take a look at three popular games to see how the prizes work:
Go Panda! costs CAD $2.50 to play and offers a top prize of CAD $250,000. The odds of winning the top prize are roughly 1 in 10,000,000. Other prizes ranging from CAD $50,000 to CAD $1 are available, and the return to player (RTP) is 55.32%.
Starmania lets you choose your stake of up to CAD $100, and prizes are awarded depending on what three matching symbols are revealed. For example, if three red and yellow stars are revealed, you win 1000X your stake. If three blue stars are displayed, you win 1X your stake. The RTP is 95.79%.
Gold Rush costs CAD $0.25 and offers a top prize of CAD $10,000. Every time you play, two winning numbers are shown, and if you match them from any of the eight further numbers you scratch, you win a prize. Apart from the jackpot, prizes of CAD $5,000 to CAD $0.25 are available. The RTP is 58.67%
