National Lottery Scratchcards
Most people in the UK will be aware of National Lottery’s scratchcards. These are a staple feature of checkouts in newsagents and local stores up and down the country in anywhere that sells National Lottery products. National Lottery scratchcards come in 4 different prices, £1, £2, £3 and £5. This was after the £10 scratchcard was removed from sale – for good – in 2019. Jackpot prizes for these scratchcards range from £50 all the way up to £2 million for the £5 scratchcards. National Lottery scratchcards are released approximately every month, with most new releases coming on the first Monday of each calendar month. The number of scratchcards released per month varies, but tends to be busiest around the start and end of each year. New scratchcards are generally have the same design and gameplay as previous scratchcards, but have a slightly different name and come in a different colour. Occasionally, brand new scratchcards come out with a completely new design. Many players struggle to understand the rules of new games, and we offer help via our ‘check your scratchcard’ article.
