Play Online Scratch Cards at Bang On Casino
Welcome to Bang On Casino, where you can access the best online scratch cards in. We currently supply 54 online scratch card games, which makes us a large provider of scratch games in Ireland that are tied to a licenced Irish online casino.
We have created this game guide to help lead you through this gaming feature and introduce you to what online scratch card games are, how they are played, their odds, and what jackpots can be won. Everything that you would want to know about this game will be revealed to give you the best start possible.
What are Online Scratch Cards?
Online scratch cards are lottery-based games. To win, you need to match a number of hidden symbols or values (typically three) that denote a prize amount. You are perhaps more familiar with the National Lottery versions of these games. Cards that are purchased from vendors are then played by scratching off a silver thin foil that reveals a sequence of symbols or values that determine a win or loss.
Online, the principles are the same, with exception of the gameplay. The reveal is virtually done either by using a digital scratch tool or by pressing a reveal button. Later we will share with you why the virtual games are better and fairer than those published by the National Lotter board. We make a point of supplying the best and fairest scratch cards Ireland players would want to get hold of.
Scratch and Win
Enjoy the top scratch card games Ireland has with Bang On. These Instant Win games are so easy to play, and we have 54 of them currently lined up for you. They get the Instant Win name because the result is immediate. The win is yours there and then, and because it has been purchased and played online, your winnings are instantly deposited into your balance. When you play scratch card online, the value of what you can win is determined by the value you purchase the card at. The more you buy into a game, the more it pays out.
Playing scratching games online is not too dissimilar to slots. With online slots a win is determined by a spin and matching 3 or more symbols on a payline. With scratch card games the prize is determined by the result of matching 3 symbols that equate to one of several prize values. Scratch games are also second to slots in terms of design diversity. Because the rules of play with scratch games are so simple, they are able to play within any design style. This is why there are so many scratch games that cover a wide number of genres.
Playing Scratch Cards Online for Real Money
There is no simpler game to play, simply scratch and win (if you’re lucky). So, why do scratchers online rather play this way than buy scratch cards from high street vendors? Well, the main reason is that with real scratch cards, the prizes that are tied to a card series may have been long won, and the residual cards, that no longer carry the big prize money remain in circulation. This kind of sucks, because unless you go out of your way to look on the lottery site to see what prize money is still in circulation, you could be wasting your money on a game that has zero hope of being a big prize.
Now, with scratch off games that you can play here at Bang On, the prize money is constant. Should someone win the jackpot from playing Raid the Piggy Bank™, then the same value can be won minutes later. With our scratch cards, the potential is continuous. Besides this, the luxury of not having to go outside and buy a card has its advantages. You can play and win inside your own home and the money is deposited into your balance to either play more great games or cash out to spend.
Winning is not a guarantee, and it should be noted that despite how simple these games are to play, like any other real money casino game, winning is purely formed by luck alone.
Types of Scratch Cards
What are the different scratchcard games that you can play online at Bang On Casino? Well, just like slots, there are only really two kinds of scratch games. You have your standard options and those that are tied to jackpot values that come with a far greater prize pot.
Jackpot Scratch Cards
The values that can be won by standard online scratch card games are largely determined by how much you are willing to buy a ticket for. Like jackpot slots, the more you pay per play, the greater the return can potentially be.
With regular small payouts, scratch cards can be won with a top prize that can range between €1,000 and €50,000. Yes, these are considered small payouts when compared to the jackpot prizes. When you play these special Jackpot scratch cards, their prize levels can range anywhere up to €1,000,000!

All promotions at BangOn are subject to change, and we heavily encourage our members to read through the terms and conditions (T&Cs) before making any payment to unlock the offers.
Scratch Card Odds
What are the odds of winning with casino scratch cards and are those odds better or worse than the games you can buy from high street lottery vendors? Well, instant win games are different due to their programming. Scratch games are built with an RTP (Return to Player) formula.
First, with cards linked to the Irish National Lottery, the odds of winning a top prize range from 1 in 500,000 to 1 in 2 million. But do not be fooled by the back of the card telling you the odds of winning are 1 in 4. You have to remember that there are millions of tickets printed out and sold, so the odds are over the entire game. It does not mean that if you buy 4 cards that 1 will win.
With online casino scratch card games, each one has its own set of odds. Your chances of winning are determined by several factors; the price you buy in at, and how many tickets you purchase. The RTP is a payout score that gives a guide to what can be won back from the money you put into play. This score is however based on playing the scratch game a million times. The RTP is different between games but averages out at roughly 96%. That is not to say that you will win 96% of the time you play, but after playing a million goes, you will likely make back 96% of your money.
Referring back to a previous comment, playing online is far more beneficial because the prize money is constant. With physical scratch cards like those of the National Lottery, the odds further increase outside of your favour because big prizes are not replenished and lower valued prizes remain in circulation.
All the scratch offs that you can play right here come with different payout values. This is because as you increase the amount you wish to purchase a card at, it also increases the amount of the potential winnings returned. Like any game where you place a bet, the more you lay down, the greater the return will be. There are, of course, scratchcards that have a higher cap than others, where the maximum you can win with these luck-based games surpasses others.
These are currently the top five highest prized scratch card games featured at Bang On:
- Stargate Scratch™ (official game)
- Rainbow Riches: Piles of Cash™

- Fishin’ Frenzy Scratchcard™

Frequently Asked Questions about Scratch Cards
Not everyone has played scratch card games, so there is always a first time for someone. Here we present the most commonly asked questions regarding online scratch card games by our members.
Can I play scratch cards online?
Yes. The scratch card games that are presented by us are independent of any National Lottery service. You can currently play 54 scratch games by independent licenced developers that include the likes of Hacksaw Gaming and SG: Scientific Games.
Which online scratch card is best?
There are two kinds of scratch cards because you have those that are seen as regular scratch games and those that fall into the bracket of jackpot scratchies. But these games are only defined by how large the prize money goes, which is largely dictated by how much you are willing to purchase a scratch card for. The more you go in on a card, the more you can potentially win. Picking the best is therefore only down to how you like games to be designed because ultimately, all instant win scratch games play the same way.
What are the best scratch cards to buy in Ireland?
If you are going to buy scratch card games in Ireland, your money goes much further online than it does if you were to purchase scratch cards from a lotto vendor. The main reason is that online scratch card games retain their jackpot values, so when a jackpot is won, there is still another same-valued jackpot waiting to be won immediately after. With physical lotto jackpots, the big prizes could have been won long ago, but they will still have the lower value prizes on sale.
How to get free scratch cards?
The only possible way to obtain free scratch cards is to land promotional bonuses that allow you to use the gaming aid on scratch games. Rewards like free spins and cash credit can be found within our promotional offers. However, all offers on our Promo page are subject to change, and T&Cs do apply.
