Although they closely resemble other lottery-style games like Keno, the true origins of scratch cards are actually more recent than many players believe. The earliest forms of scratch card games used manual randomisation to determine the winning outcomes, which was not nearly as advanced a method as our modern RNG technology.
Nowadays, Random Number Generation uses computer technology to fully randomize the outcome of every online scratch cards, the first basic example of which appeared in 1974 thanks to Scientific Games. It was only later in 1987 that Astro-Med applied for a patent for their instant win scratch card lottery tickets that gained massive popularity over just a few short years, becoming the scratch cards we know today.
