Moorhuhn Scratch Card Review
Mascots have a way of immediately drawing you into whatever they are representing by making things light-hearted and fun. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Gibraltar-based online game developer Glück has decided that one of their games needs a cute little chicken mascot. In this Moorhuhn scratch card review, we will look at how the game works and what this mascot could potentially fill your wallet with.
As is the norm with Glück games, Moorhuhn is incredibly simple to play. The first thing you will need to do is purchase the number of scratch cards that you would like to play from your chosen website. Once this is done, you are ready to try your luck.
Gameplay begins by clicking or tapping the “Play Scratchcard” button located below the scratch area. After doing that, you will need to use your finger or cursor to remove the face of nine different scratch sections (each represented by a bullseye target). These nine sections each hide the chicken mascot with a number displayed below it.
The number beneath each chicken mascot represents the cash value that the particular symbol is worth. Matching three cash values together will win you their value. Noticing that you are a winner is simple because all non-winning symbols will fade into their sections of the card and turn slightly grey, while the winning symbols will remain sufficiently colourful and will begin to pulsate.
The graphics in Moorhuhn are completely static apart from the animation applied to the winning symbols mentioned above. Aside from this, there is a small grunge effect that is added to the face of each section of the card as you ‘scratch’ the face away.
There is also no sound in the game—at all. This lack of sound includes any form of special effects, background music, or general sound effects. This is somewhat expected when seeing the static graphics of the game but is still something that you may wish the game had—we know we did.
Luckily, Moorhuhn does somewhat redeem itself with its pay table. There are 5,000,000 active scratch cards available in the game, with only one of these holding the winning jackpot of €70,000. Worryingly, Glück has not published an RTP percentage for the game—leaving us no clue as to the odds of actually winning your money back when playing.
There are 10 tiers that make up the paytable of the game. Each of the tiers has a set number of prizes attached to it and its own prize amount as follows:
Cost to Play
One of the best things about Moorhuhn is the cost to play a single scratchcard—a mere €0.70. This is a surprisingly low amount considering the high jackpot that is available. However, it is also put into perspective when you realise that there is only one card that you can win this jackpot on out of the staggering 5,000,000 cards available in the game.
If you would like to test-drive the game before paying anything for it, there is usually a free play version available alongside the game on websites that host it. This demo allows you to play five cards without paying but has the disadvantage that any winnings you get from the five cards are unclaimable.
While there is no dedicated mobile application for the game, it is mobile friendly and can be played using the web browser of most modern mobile devices. It is also accessible from any PC that has a decent Internet connection and an up-to-date browser.
Bottom Line — Is Moorhuhn Scratch Card Worth Playing?
There is definitely something to be said for a scratcher that is cheap to play and offers a large jackpot. Moorhuhn is a game that fits this bill ideally. While the graphics may not be anything to write home about and the lack of sound is somewhat disappointing, the fact that the jackpot is so large—especially for such a minimal outlay—could be enough to keep you coming back for more. That being said, there are definitely better online scratch games out there.
