888 American License

888 Are Now Licensed In America!

We have all heard of the huge software giants 888, right? It’s the company that brings the delights of 888 Games, 888 Poker and even 888 Bingo to us! We are sure you scratch card fans have already enjoyed heaps of what they have to offer at some of their online sites – but they have recently made a piece of online gambling history that will ensure that our American friends can enjoy all of this stuff too!

They attended a meeting at the bright lights of Vegas (very fitting) and have since announced that their license has been approved and they can go ahead implementing their very carefully devised US strategy! 888 is the first (and of course only) online gaming company to have been awarded a license in the USA – so this is a huge step for the industry. The CEO of 888 Brian Mattingley was of course excited to speak about the news:

“This is an historic moment for 888. This is the first time a company uniquely providing online gaming has been licensed by any US jurisdiction.”

To be part of such a historic moment must make 888 feel even more confident about the future success of their plans for branching out into America. The license isn’t simply for 888 it will also support some of their partners including WSOP, WMS Gaming and Caesars Interactive Entertainment – so no doubt the plans will be huge! The Nevada State Gaming Board already had suggested that their license be approved earlier on in the month but how great it must feel to have it signed and sealed!

Although 888 are the first company to be honored with the US license – we are pretty sure that they won’t be the last! The world has moved on from simple land based casino’s or bingo halls – with the infinite possibility of technology – the US are now embracing the introduction of online gaming – so much so that they are now trying to pass legislation to make it easier to implement. In fact it could be that this new legislation is in place in a few weeks!

There we have it online scratch card fans – it looks as if the games you enjoy playing so much could now be facing an American audience too! With developments like this – I’m sure we can expect a whole lot more from 888!

Mobile Apps

The Rise of Mobile Scratch Cards

Online scratch cards have always been an exhilarating rush to play, but the enjoyment is now reaching new heights as these scratch cards are being introduced on mobile platforms such as smartphones and tablets. Of all the different sorts of games involved in online casinos, none of them make as logical a fit being played on smartphones as scratch cards.

Scratching off panels on an online scratch card on a desktop computer has always been a slightly awkward affair. Of course you can click the ‘reveal all’ button, but it is far from the excitement felt from scratching away at a physical scratch card to reveal the symbols. Scratch cards on mobile devices act to bridge this gap. With the primary control method on phones being touchscreen, scratching away at these scratch cards is not that dissimilar from scratching away at physical cards.
There is now a broad selection of mobile scratch cards available on various mobile platforms. Google Play’s App store is host to many of these, a few of which will be discussed.

Scratch & Guess Logo
This scratch card is slightly different to your conventional scratch cards. In this innovative version, you scratch away at an image that hides a logo from famous brands, companies, sports teams and other organisation. The card is made more exciting, however, as you get less points for scratching the centre of the image, where finding the answer is much easier. You can max out on points by scratching at the edges of the panel, where identification is more general.

Scratch and Guess
This game is very similar to the previous game. However, instead of guessing famous brands and logos, the game asks that you identify famous people such as actors, movie characters, musicians, games, sports stars and scientists. The player is rewarded with coins for getting correct answers, which can be used to unlock new levels and buy hints. Like the Logo game mentioned above, players receive fewer points for a correct guess if the obvious part of the image is revealed.

Scratch Draw
This game allows you to draw by scratching on top of various backgrounds. The game is enjoyable by players of all ages, from young children to adults. Players have the ability to change the thickness of the pen and get extra detail. The app takes uses its mobile functionality to allow sharing of images drawn on social networks.

Many More Online Scratch Cards
Downloading apps from Google Play isn’t the only place to enjoy the thrill of online scratch cards as there are many other established sites that offer these great little games and more. For instance 888Games has a wide selection of instant win games and scratch cards that are sure to keep you entertained from your mobile whilst on the go! 888Games also have many other games you can enjoy such as slots and casino style table games.

This can be anywhere from £0.50 to several quid per shot. You get a card with six scratch-off spots that look like clay pigeons. Each pigeon represents one shot.
