Scratch cards are not a new idea. Scratch cards have been around for years. Players can win great prizes from scratch cards so don’t discount them just because you haven’t enjoyed them before.
When you look to play scratch cards make sure you pay attention to the rules. You will find them printed on the cards or with online cards the rules will be on the screen. These rules will tell you everything one needs to know before playing. Often time’s players go and just start scratching off the card in random. I’ve done that before and realized that I was only supposed to scratch off a few of the logos. I don’t know how I would have reacted if I had a winning card that I had just nullified. Many scratch companies hope you will do this so they do not have to pay out on the winning cards. This has happened to many people when they have tried to cash in larger winning cards.
Many players do not know that you can find the odds of winning on each scratch card. Often times most players will go out and purchase the cheapest cards and get a few of them to increase their odds. This is often a bad play since cards that cost a little more have better chances of winnings. Just take a look at the scratch cards again if you do not believe me. Usually the one dollar scratch cards will have a 1 in 7 chance of winnings while a ten dollar card will have a 1 in 2.5 chance of winning. It’s like playing slots its better to bet the max to be able to win the jackpot.
Of course don’t start going to play cards that are out of your budget. You can still win with dollar cards and if that’s what your budget allows stick with those cards. Don’t stretch a budget by playing high priced scratch cards. With online scratch cards you can play even more cards in your budget.
Also remember when you purchase a lot of cards at once don’t go and throw them out after you scratch them off quickly. I remember a story one time. I was walking out from a gas station and I saw a bum pulling scratch cards off the top of the trash. In the mix of 10 cards that had been thrown out was a card that was a $500 winner. The owner of the card must have missed it as it was mixed in with 9 other losers. So just throw them in the glove box and take one more look at them when you get home before you throw them out.
Scratch cards are a great way to break up the day. They can also be a different way to save a few bucks by saving winning cards. So next time you are online or inline at the gas station grab a card. Who knows what you could walk away with.
