Some of the best rated online casinos at TopCasinos are powered by software from Realtime Gaming (RTG). These include 5-star online casinos like Aladdin’s Gold, Club World, High Noon and Win Palace. Like other software providers RTG offers scratch cards in its online casino game portfolio. Scratch cards are mainly used chill out between stretches of serious wagering. They are simple games and can be played at quick speed. RTG scratch cards are somewhat different from the offering of other online gaming software providers and this uniqueness is their advantage. RTG presently offers four scratch cards that are listed as a separate sub category under Specialty Games at its online casinos. Each of them is briefly discussed in this article.

The 5 Diamond Blackjack scratch card opens to a casino blackjack table with one spot for the dealer and five spots for the player’s hands. When the player starts the game two cards are dealt face down to each of the spaces. As in blackjack, the player has to get a hand that beats the dealer’s hand, but with only two cards in each hand. When the card is scratched all the hands are revealed. If any of the player’s hand beats the dealer’s hand he receives a payout. The payout amount is his bet multiplied by the multiplier associated with that hand. If the player gets a blackjack then the multiplier is doubled. The cards are valued as in blackjack, but with the Ace having a fixed value of 11. If a Diamond is revealed in any of the cards the player wins all five hands. 5 Diamond Blackjack has a progressive jackpot that can be randomly triggered after any game.

RTG Hot Dice scratch card is based on online craps. There are five spots on the scratch card and each reveals a pair of dice once the card is scratched. The player has to get a total of 7 or 11, as in craps, to win a payout. The payout is the player’s stake multiplied by the associated multiplier. In RTG Hot Dice, if any spot displays a chip then the player gets paid for all five spots. The multipliers range from 1x to 2,000x and the stake ranges from $1 to $10. There is a randomly triggered progressive jackpot in RTG Hot Dice.

RTG Lucky 8’s scratch card has an Irish theme with a leprechaun and a rainbow in the background. The scratch card displays two four-leaf clovers and five pots of gold. When scratched, each clover leaf reveals a number. If any of the pots of gold reveal any of the two numbers on the leaves, the player wins the multiplier shown or a free spin. If a pot shows a horse shoe then that pot is automatically awarded to the player. A Lucky 8 awards all five pots of gold. The randomly triggered progressive jackpot is also available.

The final RTG scratch card is Magic 7’s. Ten magician’s hats are displayed on the scratch card. When the card is scratched each hat reveals a number and a multiplier or free spin. If the number is 7 then the player wins. If the Magic Hat is revealed then the prize is doubled. The randomly triggered jackpot is also included in RTG Magic 7’s scratch card.
