Most people find scratchcards hard to resist and do not consider them as a form of gambling. The main reason for this is probably the inexpensive nature of scratchcards. Typically a scratchcard will cost you Pound 1 whereas if you were to go into a Betting Shop or a Casino, 1 Pound would get you nowhere in a hurry and in most Casinos in Europe you have to be a member!
Online scratchcards, scratch offs, scratch tickets, scratch lotteries or whatever name you may know them as is actually really big business m-918kiss.com. Due to the online gambling ban in the USA, Europe is picking up the slack with great gusto.
The main countries where online scratch cards are booming are France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Finland, Norway, Denmark and of course the U.K. Even countries as far flung as Japan and Australia are joining in on this ever growing and popular craze.
Another main reason why online scratch cards are so popular is that the odds of winning are very high, typically the odds of scratching a winner are 1-3 and the cash payouts are simply mind boggling. Every day, someone, somewhere will win between 1 Pound- 200,000 Pound and often with very little outlay. Another key reason why scratch cards are growing in popularity is because… let’s face it, we all love them, they are uncomplicated and a heck of a lot a fun. The anticipation of having scratched two of a kind whether it is a symbol or a number and praying and hoping that the next scratch gives you the third you so desperately need in order to win. I remember going to the Shopping Mall with my mother as a child and she would often buy 3-4 scratchcards once or twice a week. She always seemed to scratch a winner, never big payouts but enough to keep her hooked.
With the advent of the internet, scratchcard companies are now able to target a massive audience and entice potential players with free scratchcards and match deposits. For example, if you sign up, you will often get 5 free scratchcards, if you then deposit 10 Pound, the company will also give you Pound 10, so you actually get 25 Pound worth of scratchcards for the price of 10 Pound! A very good deal indeed!
