Scratch cards bring excitement and anticipation. Not knowing the reward hiding behind the cover increases the mystery and users can't help but scratch to figure out their reward. Let's look at a few examples of how they are used in mobile apps.

Examples of mobile app scratch cards

Google Pay

Perhaps the best known example that made scratch cards popular in the first place, Google Pay uses scratch cards after every transaction a user makes. The logic behind the app's scratch card is to provide customers with a chance to earn rewards for using the app. These rewards are randomly generated and can vary in value.

Challenges faced while creating scratch cards in mobile apps

Developers need to build the core mobile app. They don't really have the time to keep adding and changing scratch cards (text, designs, targeting, etc).

On top of that, every new experiment with a scratch card takes 2 weeks to build, another 2 weeks to make the app release, and another month or so to understand whether your scratch card achieved the desired engagement.
