How To Win Scratch Card Jackpots

Mar 13, 2008
On the whole Scratch Card games are a game of chance, but there are still plenty of strategies and tips you can use to improve your chances of landing a big jackpot. This guide to designed to help you maximize your wins and minimize your loses.

The Luck Factor:
Winning at scratch cards is always down to luck, there is nothing scientific you can do to improve your chances of picking a winning card. As everyone knows lucky streaks run hot and cold but you can improve your percentage chances of winning in a number of ways.

The first way to improve your chances of winning big is by playing more scratch cards. No, I'm not suggesting you spend more money on the cards, rather that you play the cards with the lower purchase values - for example if you only have $20 available to play with this month then don't opt to play the cards with a ticket price of $5! You'll only be able to buy 4 cards and you'll have to be very lucky to get a winner is such a small number of cards.

Instead play the cards with a purchase price of 0.20c as you'll be able to buy 25 cards and you'll dramatically increase your chances of getting a winning card in such a large selection. You'll also have more fun for your money too!

Don't Go Broke:
It's a pretty simple tip, but you can't win when you have no money to play with! To avoid going broke use a 'Stop Limit' system. Set yourself a daily or weekly amount of money you can comfortably afford to lose. Let's say you can afford to lose $20 a month without breaking into a sweat, so set yourself a weekly gambling limit of $5 - If you're unlucky and lose the lot in one day then do not play again that week.

Using a system like this will help you control how much you are spending and allow you to continue playing even when luck is not on your side. This way you'll be able to play through the dry spells and not get stuck in them. The longer you stay in the game, the better your chances of landing a big win!

Chase Wins Not Loses:
If you find yourself on a winning roll then slowly increase your stakes and chances of landing a big jackpot. Because you can play scratch cards for low stakes you can steadily build up a healthy bank roll, if you start the day with $5 and you manage to win $30 in a session then bank $15 (your original $5 plus $10 profit) and gamble the remaining $15 on higher priced cards which carry bigger payout's.

Play With Other Peoples Money:
Gambling with other peoples money is way more fun than your own! Now I'm not suggesting you go and steal your partners credit card but you can get free cash from many online scratch card sites.
