What are online scratch cards?

Many people know and love playing scratch cards but are not aware that the internet revolution has also affected the scratch cards industry by bringing this beloved pastime activity online.

Online scratch cards are the internet version of this lottery-based game that has been used by state-run lotteries and charity organizations for decades. These days both state-run lottery companies and private operators offer this game online and turned into a much more exciting game, offering multiple designs and play options.

Online scratch cards are played in a similar way to regular scratch cards except that you do not need to go and purchase a scratch off card from a stand or a store. Rather you can play them from your home or office with a click of a button.

Another key advantage when you play online scratch cards is that many scratch cards operators offer much better odds than regular scratch cards and if you play a particular scratch card game and get bored, there are always dozens more instant win games to choose from.

You can access online scratchcards in two forms; there is software you can download and install on your computer. Once you have downloaded the software you will have access to all the games that are available from that software operator. When the operator will add new games your installed software will update automatically and you will gain access to the new games added.

The other option is playing scratch cards on browser-based software without the need to download the actual software. The games usually work on Flash technology and you will need to have a browser Flash Plugin in order to play. Those can be downloaded online free of charge.

Browser-based scratch cards are the most common form of online instant win tickets. They don't require heavy software to be installed on your computer and allow for many uses like virtual fundraisers for charity. Although charity was always a popular reason for the use of scratch cards, in recent years more and more people have discovered them for reasons of personal gain and realized they can win money online playing scratch cards.
