Online casino gamblers now have a huge range of casino games to choose from, some of which require an element of skill whilst others are pure luck. The major online casino operators have recognised that most gamblers sometimes just want an instant result, and amongst the games they have introduced to satisfy this demand are scratch cards. Most of the online scratch cards are similar in principle to the scratch cards you would buy in your local newsagent, with six or nine symbols of which the scratch card gambler must usually match three to win. The symbols are often themed to replicate popular television programmes such as Blankety Blank, Family Fortunes or Blockbusters, or they can be linked to popular sports such as golf, horse racing or football. For the casino gambler who usually plays card games online, there are even scratch cards with a poker or blackjack theme. Aside from the obvious advantage of an instant result, scratch cards can also be played for very small stakes, sometimes as little as Euro 0.10, allowing almost every online gambler to have a bit of fun for very little money. For those scratch card gamblers looking for a high stake game, Party Casino offer their Hollywood Stars scratch card on which you can stake up to $500 with a potential win of up to $50,000. Irish online casino gamblers who fancy a punt on a scratch card will find as many as seven different scratch cards on the Paddy Power online casino site, at least one of which should match their interests. Scratch cards don’t require any particular skill or knowledge, but an increasing number of online gamblers are trying their luck as a change from their usual casino game.
