Gold Hunt Scratch Card Review
Unique scratch cards that break the convention of other scratchers are always something that we are excited about. Gold Hunt, a scratcher by Gibraltar-based online game development company, Gluck, is a game that definitely has us running around with excitement. In this Gold Hunt scratch card review, we will look at how this scratch differs from others and how you can use this to win more.
Unlike other online scratch cards, Gold Hunt offers you four scratch cards in one. To play the game, simply purchase a ticket and hit the “Play Now” button. Doing this will start the game and allow you to begin playing.
If you would like to take a shortcut in playing, you can click on the “Scratch All” button immediately after starting the game to reveal all game symbols and show if you are a winner. If you would like to play the game in its entirety, though, you can just ignore this button.
When starting a new game, you will be presented with four distinct scratch areas. Each area is revealed by moving your cursor over the face of the card until all the hidden symbols are shown. The four scratch areas are explained below, starting with the top-left scratcher:
- Reveal 4: This scratcher is a simple 3X2 grid that has random numbers hidden beneath the face of the card. This scratcher aims to reveal a numerical four. Doing this will win you an instant €5.
- Equal 4: The second scratcher located to the right of Reveal 4 is also a 3X2 grid. This scratcher has two mathematical sums hidden behind the face of the card as well as the answer to the sums. Uncovering a sum that has a solution equalling four will win you whatever amount is specified at the base of the scratch area.
- Match 3 (Symbols): Beneath the Reveal 4 scratch area is the 3X3 Match 3 Symbols This card hides various symbols (ranging from dice to horseshoes) that each have a monetary value associated with them. Matching three symbols will win you the cash value displayed on the symbols.
- Match 3 (Values): To the right of the Match 3 (Symbols) card area is the final 3X3 scratcher. This card area has random cash values that are hidden behind its face. Revealing three matching values wins you their worth.
Knowing whether or not you are a winner is blatantly apparent thanks to the large gold banner that appears in the centre of the screen. This banner also displays the total amount that you have managed to win from all four card areas.
The visuals of Gold Hunt are quite good, with gold hues that play off one another to create a beautiful collage of symbols and numbers. Animations include a visually pleasing shining effect applied to any winning logo or value, and the scratch effect applied to the face of each scratch area while moving your cursor across it is also something that ties the whole design of the game together.
Unfortunately, despite the outstanding graphics of the game, there are no sounds or music at all.
For a scratcher with four card areas, you would expect the jackpot amount to be rather large. That is not the case with Gold Hunt, as the main jackpot is only €10,000. However, the odds of winning it are a respectable 1 in 433,627, and there are 1,500,000 active cards in the game.
Other prizes are distributed using a massive pay table that consists of the following 41 prize tiers:
Cost to Play
A single scratch card for Gold Hunt will cost you €1. If, however, you would like to test the game beforehand, there is a demo version available that allows you to play ten cards free of charge.
The game can be played online using any up-to-date web browser. There is, unfortunately, no mobile app dedicated to the scratcher available. Luckily, the game is mobile friendly if you want to play it using your device’s browser.
Bottom Line — Is Gold Hunt Scratch Card Worth Playing?
Gold Hunt is an awesome twist to traditional online scratchers. The chance to play four different scratch areas not only makes each round of the game last longer but also keeps you interested for longer as well. The solid graphics also add to the fact that this game could easily be played for hours on end.
