The History of Scratch Cards

Scratch cards, also known as scratch off or scratch out tickets, are one of the newer developments in online gaming. While lotteries have been prominent worldwide since ancient history, the scratch card was invented in the 1970s by several American computer scientists. It brought to life a revolutionary concept: the instant lottery, with instant gratification.

One of the first scratch-off lottery tickets, called The Instant Game, was launched by the Massachusetts State Lottery in the mid 1970s. Many national and state lottos caught on quickly and began to offer scratch off games. A turning point at which scratch cards became particularly popular was when AstroMed Inc , an American company based in Rhode Island, patented a Scratch Card in 1987.

Scratch cards have been used for several causes, including charities, federal associations, and as a means of advertising. Since these instant win cards are associated with such activities, they appeal to a broad audience worldwide.

Heading into the 21st century, the traditional printed scratch card seems to have become a thing of the past. Virtually an online lotto, online scratch games deliver instant cash in a more enticing and entertaining way than a conventional lottery or raffle.
