When it comes to online gambling New Zealand players are in a very fortunate position; they have lots of fantastic options open to them. We wanted to go as far as we could with this at JackpotCity, and make ours the very best online casino in the country.
To that end our pokies, live casino games, Baccarat, Roulette, Keno and other major entertainments are all, of course, fantastic. But we wanted to make every single title the cream of the crop. JackpotCity shouldn’t just be what you go for when you want to play great Roulette or Blackjack online.
So we used the same software legend, Microgaming, to supply all of our other casino games too! Now you’ll find a bouquet of options at JackpotCity, no matter what kind of playing mood you’re in. And some of the best titles that are waiting to be discovered are online Scratch Cards.
A Little Background to Scratch Cards
Scratch Cards, or Scratchies, might not be the first thing you think of when playing in a casino, and you wouldn’t be alone. They were first produced in the 1970s by the Dittley Brothers Lottery Division, as a way of raising funds for the Massachusetts government.
The cards are still used to make money for worthy causes, but at our online casino they’re also used simply as exciting, instant-win entertainments. Using the certified Random Number Generator means you know they are always safe and fair, and you can win a lot more money when you play them online.
The Way Scratch Card Games Work
These games have very similar rules and structures whether you are playing them on land or at a casino online, though you’ll have a lot more options with us than you would at your local corner store. With physical, tickets, you need to remove a thin film of glue to reveal a set of symbols. Depending on what those are, you could win a prize.
When you play at JackpotCity, you’ll also be revealing symbols by clicking on certain areas of the screen with your cursor. If you’re using your smartphone or tablet, you do the same thing on the touchscreen with your finger.
Once again, you may or may not be paid out according to what you uncover. Your prize is calculated using the icons you reveal and the amount you wagered in the first place. You can only play a single ticket at the time, but as soon as the round is over you can buy another and go again.
Scratch Card Themes to Thrill You
Since Scratch Cards all work so similarly, the central theme that designers use in each game can make or break the experience for you. Choose simple options that are very like land-based cards to begin with, and then progress to more complex variations.
In much the same way as the motif of a video pokies game can really engage you, the images and animations used in Scratchies can do the same. Reveal symbols by opening urns in an Egyptian-themed game, for example, or pop floating bubbles rather than just clearing squares.
An Overall Casino Enhancement
Whether they are using Scratch Cards as the focus or a complement to the rest of their online gambling players are going to love what is on offer at JackpotCity. Their quick-play nature makes them ideal when you only have a few moments to spare, or when you want to clear your head between games of Blackjack.
