Buying A Single Card

  • Select your stake value either using the up and down arrows in the Stake field, or by typing the required amount into the Stake field and pressing Enter or clicking on any blank area of the game screen. The Stake amount displayed is the stake you are placing on a single card.

    The default stake value varies by currency. In this Pounds Sterling example it is £1.00. The Stake amount must be within the minimum and maximum bet amounts. If you enter a stake larger than the maximum stake allowed and click on Place Bet or press Enter, the stake reduces automatically. If your available balance is more than the maximum stake, the stake drops to the maximum stake amount. If your available balance is less than the maximum stake, the stake drops to your balance amount.  If you enter a stake smaller than the minimum stake allowed and click on Place Bet or press Enter, the stake changes automatically to the minimum stake value but if your available balance is less than the minimum stake, you cannot place the bet.

  • The Auto Play field allows the purchasing of multiple cards. The default for this field is 1. To purchase only one card, ensure that this field is set to 1.
  • Click on the Place Bet button and your scratchcard will be purchased. The Stake amount will then be removed from your available balance.

Buying Multiple Cards / Auto Play

  • Select your stake value either using the up and down arrows in the Stake field, or by typing the required amount into the Stake field and pressing Enter or clicking on any blank area of the game screen. The Stake amount displayed is the stake you are placing on a single card.

    The default stake value varies by currency. In this Pounds Sterling example it is £1.00. The Stake amount must be within the minimum and maximum bet amounts. If you enter a stake larger than the maximum stake allowed and click on Place Bet or press Enter, the stake reduces automatically. If your available balance is more than the maximum stake, the stake drops to the maximum stake amount. If your available balance is less than the maximum stake, the stake drops to your balance amount.  If you enter a stake smaller than the minimum stake allowed and click on Place Bet or press Enter, the stake changes automatically to the minimum stake value but if your available balance is less than the minimum stake, you cannot place the bet.

  • The Auto Play field allows the purchasing of multiple cards. The default for this field is 1. To purchase more than one card, enter the number required either using the up and down arrows in the Auto Play field, or by typing the required number into the Auto Play field. The total currency amount that will be removed from your available balance (assuming Auto Play is not stopped) is the Stake amount multiplied by the number of Auto Plays selected.
  • Click on the Place Bets button and your first scratchcard will be purchased. The single Stake amount will then be removed from your available balance.
  • Once all symbols on your card have been revealed, (see ‘Revealing the Symbols’) your next scratchcard will be purchased and the single Stake amount will again be removed from your available balance. This will continue until the specified number of Auto Plays have been actioned or Auto Play is stopped (see ‘Stopping Auto Play’).

Quick Card Purchases

  • To buy cards quickly, press the Space Bar when you have no purchased cards. Cards will be purchased at the price displayed in the Stake field. The number of cards purchased is dependent on the Auto Play field which is used for the purchase of multiple cards. If Auto Play is set to 1, only 1 card will be purchased for you. If Auto Play is set to 2, 2 cards will be purchased for you and so on.

Stopping Auto Play

  • When multiple cards are purchased, a ‘Stop’ button is displayed in the bottom right-hand corner of the game screen. If you click on this button or press the Space Bar whilst Auto Play is running, the Auto Play function stops and Auto Play is reset to 1. This means that you are able to stop Auto Play regardless of how many Auto Play gambles you initially selected or how many remain. Only the single Stake amount for each play that has been started or completed will be deducted from your balance.

Revealing the Symbols

If you have used the Auto Play facility to purchase more than 1 card, the symbols will be revealed automatically for you. If you have purchased a single card, there are several ways to uncover the symbols. These are explained below;

  • Click on each covered section individually. As you do so, it will be uncovered.
  • Click on the Reveal All button. All 9 sections will be uncovered simultaneously.
  • Press the space bar. This activates the Reveal All button and all 9 sections will be uncovered simultaneously.

    Your current Turbo Mode setting will apply.

Turbo Mode - There is also a Turbo facility. This speeds up the uncovering of the symbols. Click on the buttons to turn the facility on and off. When Turbo is on, the 9 sections are uncovered more quickly.

Winning Bets

A winning bet occurs when 3 identical symbols are found in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Once all 9 sections have been uncovered, any winning symbols will flip over, and show the word ‘Win’.  A message is then displayed showing the total amount you have won.

To understand the payouts for each winning line, please see ‘Lines & Payouts Table’.

Below are examples of 3 winning scratchcards;

Lines & Payouts Table

This table shows the 7 game symbols. On each symbol is the potential win amount for a single winning line of that symbol. A winning line occurs when 3 identical symbols appear vertically, diagonally or horizontally. The amounts shown on the table have been determined using the calculations below;

3 Cups in a row = 1000 x stake
3 Shirts signs in a row = 4 x stake
3 Players in a row = 50 x stake
3 Boots in a row = 2 x stake
3 Footballs in a row = 15 x stake
3 Whistles in a row = 1 x stake
3 Goalkeepers in a row = 10 x stake


If you have a winning line, the payout you receive for the line will be the value shown on the corresponding symbol. If there are multiple winning lines, the single win amounts are added together. For example, using the Payouts table below which is based on a £1.00 stake, if you had a winning line of 3 boots and a winning line of 3 footballs your payout would be £17.00 (£2.00+ £15.00).
