What are Scratchcards?
Scratch cards are instant games. They typically present as a square-shaped card with a grid-like format of hidden symbols. Many scratch card games feature a 3 x 3 grid; however, it is possible to find multiple grid formations on these games. The objective of scratch games is simple: Match the required number of symbols, as indicated on the face of the scratch card ticket for the associated reward. Usually, players are required to match 3 symbols to activate payouts. There is no specialised technique for playing these games successfully, save effective bankroll management. Players are encouraged to adopt responsible gaming practices with all online casino games.
Each scratch card game features several elements, including: a minimum bet, a maximum bet, playlines, RTP (Return to Player), a unique theme, symbols, and the paytable. Karamba scratch games are available on PC, Mac, Android, or iOS devices. All outcomes of scratch card games are determined by RNGs (Random Number Generators). These software programs are governed by algorithms that randomise the outcomes of every game. Traditional scratchcards are made of paper, or cardboard, and they are coated with a plastic-like substance which conceals the symbols beneath. This opaque covering must be removed before any payouts can be determined. Much the same is true with an online scratchcard game – except that these are scratched virtually.
What’s Entertaining about Scratch Cards?
“Scratch cards are easy to play, and everyone stands just as much chance as anyone else. No specific gameplay, or style is needed.”
All it takes is a ticket, and good fortune to come your way. With scratchcard games, players don’t need to learn complicated betting rules, bet types, or probability analysis to enjoy these games. There are no charts or gambling guides required either. Scratchcards are designed for the purpose of instant fun. They can be played in between games of blackjack online, baccarat, roulette games, or slots. They are ideal as stand-alone casino games, or as the perfect in-betweener.
For players these scratch online games are entertaining and fulfilling on many levels. At the click of a button, players can find themselves playing a VIP Black Tournament scratch game at Karamba, with a 5 x 4 grid of Gold Star entertainment. Players may wish to manually click on each square to reveal the symbol beneath, or instantly reveal everything with the auto reveal option. These feature-filled games are available in a demo mode for free, or in a real-money mode.
Online and Mobile Scratch Cards
Scratchcard enthusiasts can enjoy online scratch card games and mobile scratch card games. Online scratchcard games are available in a demo play mode, or a real money mode, direct off a browser. These games require Flash Player, and they mimic the actions of a physical scratch ticket. Karamba also offers players mobile scratch card games. These games run on Android or iOS devices, with all the best features of PC-based games. Though mobile games have limited screen sizes, the games have been crafted to allow maximum functionality given the screen real estate that’s available. Both versions of online scratch card games are virtually indistinguishable from the actual tickets that players hold in their hands.
Different Scratch Cards Offered at Karamba
Karamba is home to an entertaining selection of scratch games. These include Egyptian-themed scratchcard games like Pyramid. This scratch card game masquerades as 3 distinct slot machine games. There are 9 symbols which need to be revealed, and if players match at least 3 symbols, prizes are up for grabs. Popular Egyptian-themed symbols and elements are peppered throughout the game including the Eye of Horus, Egyptian labourers, golden pyramids, and various other classic slots-style symbols like 7s, and bars.
After the ancient Egyptian adventures, players can go big in style. VIP-style games include VIP Black, Power Cash, and Queen of Diamonds. Power Cash scratchcard game is a fruit-themed classic scratch ticket game. Players are required to match 3 symbols to form combinations for prizes. Watermelons, bells, grapes, plums, horseshoes, bananas, diamonds and red 7s are associated with different sized payouts. This game is particularly interesting, since players can rack up combinations on each of the 7 lines in this game.
Scratchcard fans with a preference for casino games will love Roulette Scratch, Royal Dice, Lucky 21, Poker King, and Royal Slots. These popular instant games can be practiced in demo mode before players switch to real money gaming. Casino Riches is a 3 in 1 game where players can form combinations on the slots reels, the craps dice, and the roulette table all on the same screen. Provided at least 3 symbols match, Casino Riches pays out.
Follow these Scratch Card Rules of Thumb
Every scratch card player should understand the rules of play when it comes to scratchcard games.
Have Fun: Scratching is first and foremost about having fun! Outcomes of these games have nothing to do with the size of your wagers, or the number of tickets you buy. Ultimately, it’s about how much fun you have and what you’re comfortable wagering.
Set a Scratch Card Budget: Everyone is limited by their budget in scratch card games. It doesn’t matter how wealthy you are, you still have a budget to work with. Lottery tickets and scratch card tickets are highly alluring. The glitz and glam of landing combinations of symbols can be overpowering and can entice you to spend more than you ought to. A great workaround is to go into the store with a set amount of cash in hand. Don’t take any more than you need to purchase your tickets. Same goes when playing scratchcard games online – budget is basic!
