One of the problems faced by the anti-gambling lobbies in Ireland and the UK is how to deal with the subject of gambling on the lotteries. The lotteries have now established themselves as one of the main sources of income for many charities, and indeed for a variety of community projects which would struggle for funding from any other source, so it is difficult for any politicians to accuse them of encouraging gambling. Gambling on the lotteries has reduced since their introduction but it remains the biggest gambling activity in Ireland in terms of public popularity, far exceeding sports gambling or casino gambling. Scratch cards in particular are regularly bought by people who would never dream of gambling on horse racing or online casino gambling games, and gambling on scratch cards or the lottery draws is almost considered to not be gambling at all. The success of scratch card gambling has of course been recognised by the online casino gambling operators, and most online casino gambling sites now include versions of scratch card gambling and lottery gambling among their ranges of online gambling games. In fact scratch card gambling online has become almost as popular as the scratch cards purchased on the high street. One of the reasons for this is of course the cost, and while the cost of real scratch cards has increased significantly we can still indulge in scratch card gambling online for as little as 0.1 euros per go. Most online casino gambling sites do however offer a wide range of scratch card gambling prices to suit all tastes, and it is even possible to stake as much as $500 on one scratch card at Party casino. The appeal of scratch card gambling online is the same as with high street scratch cards, with instant results and no effort required it will continue to remain popular.
