The normal scratch card game is very simple. Players scratch the spots on a card to reveal the icons. If the required number of matching icons are revealed then the player receives a payout based on the multiplier associated with the icon. Playtech offers a number of scratch cards at its online casinos. But it has tweaked the themes and the game play so as to make the scratch cards more interesting.

One set of scratch cards is based on popular online casino games. Beetle Bingo is based on bingo. The bingo balls are colored beetles that have the numbers marked on their backs. At the beginning of the game the beetles are in a jar. The players shake the jar and the lid opens and 15 beetles crawl out and line up with their numbers displayed. The scratch card is covered by three layers of leaves. The player removes the leaves to reveal three sets of five numbers with a payout. If all the numbers in a set correspond with numbers on the beetles' backs the players get the indicated payout. Beetle Bingo can be played in another manner. Clicking the Scratch All button first exposes the scratch card. Then the beetles come out of the jar one by one and the card is marked in real time with the player watching. This format is more exciting because it maintains the suspense for a longer period of time.

Blackjack is the blackjack themed scratch card at Playtech online casinos. The objective is to beat the dealer in a game of blackjack with only two cards in each hand. Clicking on the Deal button sets the game. There are three spots for the player's cards and one for the dealer. At each spot one card is dealt face down and one card face up. When the player scratches his face down cards they are exposed along with the payout. Finally the player exposes the dealer's hand. For the hands in which the player has a greater hand value he receives the indicated payout.

The Playtech scratch card game based on online slots is Classic Slots. The screen reveals three classic three reel slot machines. The symbols are the common fruits like lemons, melons and grapes of the classic slots and also symbols like sevens, bells and bars. When a slot machine is scratched three symbols appear on the payline and the payout is displayed below. If the three symbols in a slot machine are identical then the displayed payout accrues to the player.

The last scratch card in this set is Roulette. It is perhaps the simplest of them all. There are five games in this scratch card. Players can scratch each game in turn to reveal the number bet on and the payout. Finally they can scratch the roulette wheel to find out against which number the ball lies. If that number figures in any of the games then the player receives the corresponding payout.

All the Playtech scratch cards have certain operating features. One is the Auto Play. Players can set the Auto Play from 1 to 99. Then on activating the Auto Play the set number of games will run successively without manual intervention. The Shuffle button allows picking another scratch card instead of the current one prior to the game round. The scratch cards can be shuffled up to three times prior to one game round. Playtech scratch cards can be played at online casinos like Omni Casino and Casino Tropez.
