How do you know what prizes are left? Which scratch cards are you most likely to win? Here at Wizard Slots, we answer the top-asked questions on National Lottery scratch cards below!
National Lottery Scratch Cards Remaining Prizes Left
Scratch cards are some of the most popular games as they are easy to play, requiring players to simply scratch and play to see whether they have won instantly. Some players assume that as long as National Lottery scratch cards are available to buy, prizes are still available to win. However, this is not always the case.
Before you choose a National Lottery scratch card to play, it’s important to check what prizes are left on that scratch card. Sometimes, scratch cards can still be sold, despite there being no jackpot prizes left.
How To Find Out What Prizes Are Left On Scratch Cards
Finding out what prizes are left on scratch cards is really easy! Simply visit this page on the National Lottery website. Here, you will see a long list of all the different scratch cards currently available to buy. These are all in chronological order, making it easy to find the one you want!
Next to each game name, you will be able to see the game number, the price of the scratch card, and the top prize it has. Lastly, you’ll see the number of remaining prizes. The number of prizes left varies greatly. For example, at the time of writing, there are 4,015 prizes left on Get Fruity and only 1 prize left on £2 Million Blue.
Above the information table, you will see when the information on how many prizes are left on each scratch card was last updated. Typically, this information will be updated daily. If you notice that the scratch card name has a double asterisk next to it, additional top prizes have been added due to popular demand. If a scratch card name has a triple asterisk next to it, the last top prize has been claimed.
Scratch Cards With No Jackpots Remaining
Once the last top prize of a scratch card has been claimed, no new packs of this scratch card can be displayed for sale.
However, all scratch cards that are currently displayed can still be sold, despite there being no jackpots remaining. This is why it is important for you to check how many prizes are left before you buy.
