I’ve teamed up with Scratchcard Winners for this post. They kindly provided me with £10 worth of Scratchcards to scratch off and see if I too could become a winner like the winners featured on their site. Scratchcard Winners are not affiliated with The National Lottery, they just run a site that features their Scratchcards.
My fiancé and I regularly play Scratchcards, so we were pretty excited to see what we could win. The most we have ever won on a Scratchcard was £50. That’s pretty frustrating considering we play on a weekly basis. Most of the time our winnings won’t even cover the cost of what we spent. It makes us wonder why we continue to buy them. I guess the hopes of winning big one time is enough to lure us back again and again. After all, you can’t win if you don’t play.
What is Scratchcard Winners?
Scratchcard Winners is the number one blog page for all UK National Lottery Scratchcards past and present. They regularly feature information on new Scratchcards and their availability in shops, as well as posting images of big winners on their social media pages. They love to run competitions and giveaways too, so be sure to follow them on their website, Facebook and Instagram account for all the latest news.
Again, just to reiterate they are not affiliated with The National Lottery.

- Super 7s – £3 per Scratchcard (There is a 1 in 3.74 overall chance of winning a Prize on each Scratchcard )
What I thought of the Scratchcards
All of the Scratchcards were super easy to play. The instructions were easy to follow and I had no issue with understanding what I needed to do.
I enjoyed scratching them off, eagerly hoping I was going to win big. However, I only won on one of the cards.. I have covered up the code on the winning Scratchcard with white, as I’ve not claimed it yet. Here are all of the Scratchcards scratched off and a close up of the winning Scratchcard:
I won £3! I was hoping that at least a couple of these Scratchcards would be winners.. but I guess that wasn’t meant to be. It is a gamble after all.
I’m pretty happy that the Scratchcard I won on is Super 7s and game number 7. Number 7 just so happens to be my favourite number. I guess it is for a lot of people, as it’s considered lucky. It was in this instance at least. This game also had the best odds out of all of the Scratchcards.
I generally find that I tend to win more on Scratchcards that cost more than a £1. I’m not sure if they all have better odds, or that’s just something that happens when I play.
The only problems with Scratchcards that I find is that the area you scratch off never seems to be lined up with what is underneath. It drives me mad. You scratch off the exact area it says and there’s nothing under there. That’s my only quibble with Scratchcards.
It’s pretty first world problems of me to even complain about that to be honest.
Thank you to Scratchcard Winners for providing me with the Scratchcards for this post. Be sure to go check them out.
All in all, I still love Scratchcards and my lack of winning won’t deter me from playing. There are big winners out there and one day maybe I will join them!
