Scratch Card Jackpots - Win Rich for Life Scratch Jackpots
In this segment, we’re going to be talking about scratch card jackpots. Online scratch cards are able to pay out a range of prizes, starting with the amount you paid to play it, and scaling up to however high the game can pay.
Traditional scratch tickets – namely those bought in a store, associated with the national lottery of your region - have preset prices and preset jackpots. If you want to play a certain card, you must pay the exact price, and can only win the prizes deemed payable according to the rules of the game. These scratch card jackpots have no variable values.
When playing online scratch cards, jackpots can actually vary from a high amount, to a higher amount, to an incredibly high amount! We’ll explain that a little better for you.
Because you can change the stakes of an online scratch card, jackpots can also change in size. Let’s say an online scratch can be played for $1, $2 or $5. The scratch card jackpot for a $1 stakes could be $10,000; for a $2 stakes $20,000; for a $5 stake $50,000.
Some scratch games can easily be compared to Slot Machines, in terms of higher payouts for higher stakes. In the example above, the stakes-to-jackpot ratio rose evenly, much like that of a Multiplier Slot Machine. This means there is no advantage to staking $5, instead of $1, aside from the obvious higher payout. The point is, you don’t get rewarded for staking higher.
On the other hand, some online scratch jackpots will increase higher than the expected ratio, just like a Bonus Multiplier Slot Machine. Using the same basic example, what if staking the highest amount of $5 increased the largest jackpot prize to $100,000? This would mean that staking the highest amount (or “Betting Max”, as they say in the slots world) raises your expected payout two fold, and you can win rich for life jackpot.
Scratch card jackpots such as these actually give players something that is very hard to come by in online scratch cards – a viable strategy! If the jackpots increase for betting the highest stakes, so should the smaller potential prizes. By giving yourself a higher payout ratio, you are increasing your payout potential as well, therefore making it more strategically profitable to play the highest stake when playing scratch cards.
Knowing this information, you can see just how very important it is to read the rules and pay out structure for every online scratch card you wish to play. A short-cut here is to click the ‘increase stakes’ arrow to the fullest amount and watch the ‘maximum prize’ increase. Watch to see if the increase is even with each accelerated bet size.
Also be sure to read the exact conditions required to win the scratch card jackpot. No need to get overly excited when scratching off that virtual foil, only to find you aren’t really eligible for the scratch card jackpot. We should point out, however, that one extreme benefit of online scratch cards is that you cannot mistake a winning card for a loser. There’s no tossing it in the trash – if you win, you get paid, no matter how recklessly you read the results of your online scratch cards.
