Just like the paper stock scratchcard games we all know and love, scratchcards online offer a simple format and instant wins. All you have to do is scratch or select and win, with payouts instantly credited to your account. Although you won’t find scratchcard games to play at all online casinos, Vegas Palms Casino is one of the few sites that offer these games specifically for players from New Zealand. The Vegas Palms collection of scratchcard games is extensive and diverse so you are bound to find an option that makes you want to start scratching.
Playing scratchcard games at Vegas Palms Online casino is very similar to doing so with traditional paper stock versions. The only real difference is that online scratchcards are in a virtual format, but you’ll forget all about that once you experience our striking graphics and fun sound effects.
To get started, simply navigate to the Scratchcards section of the online casino games, either on your desktop or via mobile device. Then select “New Card(s)” and choose from one of our many exciting scratchcard game options. As with their traditional paper stock forbearers, online scratchcard games come in two formats – either you must scratch out blocks or you must choose from a selection of objects to reveal whether or not you have won. One of the greatest things about scratchcards is that, if you do win, your winnings are paid out instantly. So scratchcards are really the quickest and easiest way to have fun and win when you play at Vegas Palms Online Casino!
A major advantage of online scratchcard over their paper-based counterparts is the far greater variety and interactivity afforded by their virtual format. At Vegas Palms Online Casino, there are over 40 exciting scratchcard game themes – each with its own funky graphics, quirky sound effects, and entertaining animations – on offer. These include Game, Set & Scratch; Dawn of the Bread; Six-Shooter Looter Gold; and Dragon’s Fortune, among many others.
It may surprise you to learn that scratchcards, unlike lottery tickets, have not been around (as we know them today) for that long. Up until the 1970s, were not very popular because the manual randomisation techniques used to produce them were not very reliable when used in bulk. It was only in 1974, when the Scientific Games Corporation patented the first computer-based randomisation system for scratchcards, that modern scratchcards emerged. Then, in 1987, Astro-Med parented the instant scratch-off lottery ticket that has since gained such immense popularity. Despite the popularity of scratchcards at the time, they were not picked up by online casinos when they first emerged in the 1990s. This only happened in 2010, when more and more internet casinos added scratchcards to their repertoires and some new operators dedicated specifically to scratchcards even came out.
You can enjoy any of our over 40 amazing themed scratchcard games today by signing up with Vegas Palms Online Casino and heading over to the scratchcards section of your desktop-in-browser or mobile interface.
