How to play online scratchies?
There are a few different kinds of online scratch cards, and they are generally pretty similar to physical scratch cards. There are two basic categories. Here are the rules on how to play online scratchie games:
- The first is about matching symbols in a row. If you match 3 symbols vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, you win a prize.
- The second involves scratching off all of the symbols in order to match them to a reference symbol off to the side.
- The lowest bets are usually fifty cents, with the largest being AU$10. If you don’t want to scratch out each symbol, good online casinos will have “Reveal All” buttons to show all the symbols at once, as well as Autoplay options for saving your bet and moving through cards automatically.
- There are a few major themes for online scratchies: classic, fantasy, sports, slots, casino, and bingo. There’s a theme for every taste, and a taste for every theme.

Then you scratch off five rectangles–each one has a number and a multiplier. If the number matches the ball, you win the multiplier.
