Scratch card online games – playing and winning

Online scratch card games aren’t the most popular of gambling games, to be fair. They are typically to be found in the last section of games in most online casinos. And many online casinos don’t even feature these games at all why sites listing online casinos with scratch cards is a good way to find it. But still, this is not to say that these games aren’t popular. On the contrary. Many people play them and enjoy doing so. But how does one play a scratch card game online? What do you need to do in order to win? Read more below and find out.

Playing scratch card games

And you’ve thought that the slot games are as simple as it gets. How much simpler could it get than spinning the reels and making winning combinations? Well, as it turns out, it can get simpler. It’s even easier to learn how to play the scratch card games. And the reason is simple. All you need to do to play an online scratch card game is… well, scratch. If you can hit a certain number of symbols in the particular game you play, then you will win. If you don’t – then you will lose. It’s as simple as that.

Now, there are differences between different scratch card games, this much is clear. And this is very much alike the case of the slots games. The core principle and mechanics are the same in all the scratch card games. But there will be differences in how the games play out. It’s up to you to determine which particular scratch card game is the most fun for you to play.

Popular scratch card games

As we’ve mentioned before – there are many different individual scratch card games. They all differ in one way or another from one another. One popular game that people enjoy playing is Merlin’s Millions Scratch. This is a game based on the slot with the same theme. And the two of them are very similar in what they offer. You will see spell books, owls, and magicians. The biggest sum of money you can win here with a single scratch is £200,000. You will need to place a bigger bet in order to win this sum of money, though. But even for smaller bets – you can still win some nice prizes.

Then there’s the game called Deal or No Deal Scratch. This game is very much like the TV show. And it’s a specific scratch card game, at that. You will need to match symbols to the prize shown. And there will be multiple junctures where you will need to choose your path, so to speak. In this sense, the player has a bit more control over the end outcome. And the game does get that much more fun to play.

In conclusion

The final thing to note is that the scratch card games – much like the slots – have individual RTP rates. The industry standard is set at around 95%. The house always has an edge over the players. However, we hope that you personally will end up winning more money than you will lose playing. Welcome back to soon to get more game news and information!

Renju World Championship 2020 cancelled due to Corona virus

No one can have missed the current outbreak of the Coronavirus. When writing this there is still a tipping point on whether or not there will be a pandemic spread of the virus or if the world succeeds in containing it. Mainly it is mainland China who needs to work hard in limiting additional spread.

The Corona outbreak also affects the Renju community. We have now received news of that the Renju World Championship 2020 has been cancelled due to the risk of further transmission of the Corona-virus.

The Renju World Championship 2020 was planned to be held in May 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden. Many of the top Renju players in the world come from the very same countries which have been very affected by the virus. That, and of course the risk for further transmission, led to the decision of cancelling the Renju World Championship.

Replacement tournament

There will be a replacement tournament held in Stockholm for the players that actually can make it to the land in northern Europe and there will be other tournaments held throughout the year in almost every part of the world.

There will be tournaments in Estonia, Turkey and Russia and lets put out hope to scientists and researchers that they will find a quick cure and vaccine to the Coronavirus. Hopefully, we will see no more cancellations of Renju tournaments this year.

We will also see some other tournaments as well and some of the top Renju players are also doing some poker tournaments between Renju events. The strategic skill held by Renju players easily transition into poker strategies where logic, as well as maths, come into play.

How will this affect Renju

There is no doubt that Renju has its fair share of supporters and players. But still, we are engaged in a very slim strategy game, where the number of players is still quite low compared to other strategy games. Therefore, one must ask, is the future bright for Renju and us who plays it?

First of all, it must be stated that Renju is a very good strategy game. Of course, we are a bit biased, but no one can deny the sheer power of the game itself – where strategy and deep thinking clearly outclasses a weaker mind.

Secondly, it is a very nice and friendly community in the world of Renju.

However, it is always hard for a niche game having to face difficulties like external factors, such as the Coronavirus. We are to some extent dependent on being able to evolve the sport and promote it by tournaments and media coverage. Therefore, it can be a bit of a blow to the Renju community when things like this happen.

Renju has for sure a place in the future of strategy games. It is still one of the best games according to its very dedicated community. Now it is up to us who still play and enjoy the game to really make an effort of pushing this game out there. Especially important when the Renju Team World Championship was cancelled.
