Marbles Online Scratch Card

Now personally the classic game of marbles was a little old fashioned in my childhood, apparently it does still have a massive world following though and game developer Net Entertainment clearly felt this lottery style video slot would be a great change of pace from the usual themed slot games they are known for.

The British and World Marbles Championship is held every year between Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, this is due to a traditional belief that playing after this day was unlucky! Clearly players will hope that isn’t true for this online scratch version of the popular game as this is a “no-quitsies” version once you click the buy game button.

With a theoretical average payout of 90.6% you could be forgiven for thinking this is little more miserly than NetEnt’s best online slots games in terms of payout/gameplay time for your wagers however the max win is 50 thousand cash and you could win that on your very first card, given the RTP is measured over 1 million cards this can offset the “average” win by some margin.

Theme & Gameplay

Once you open the game the theme isn’t really what you might expect from its title at all being more of a magically toned piece rather than based on the traditional hobby of Marbles. The game name seems to relate only to the fact that instead of the more usual 9 boxes to scratch off for wins – in this variation of online scratch cards you select up to 6 of a total of 8 marbles displayed on the screen. These are laid out on a curtained rendition of a performer’s stage such as you would find in the Las Vegas Casino magic shows.

To start the game first click the buy game button, your cursor will now be replaced by a black, green or red magic wand from the magician’s hat next to the stage which you can choose from by clicking the wand icon. This becomes your selection tool – click 6 of the glowing marbles on stage with your chosen wand (maybe crystal balls would have worked better here NetEnt?), to gain the potential win indicated above the magic hat requires 3 of the 6 picked marbles to turn gold. Each marble that turns black grants you…. Nothing!

Summary

With a low 2.00 cash buy for each card there is plenty of fun to be had from this low limit game without raiding the wallet, hit that 50k jackpot and it’s a win ratio of 25000 to 1 on your bet – which is a pretty fantastic potential prize reward given the cost of play. Slightly smaller “jackpots” of 1k and 10k can also appear so it is not simply all small wins and one big prize available.

The feature on this game of allowing selection of wand and individual choice of the marbles does allow more player interaction but we do think NetEnt missed a trick here not making more of these magical potential bonus feature options rather than them simply giving you something extra to click. Of course the game does have an autoplay feature so you can bypass manual play if you find it overly fussy after a while or wish to play more quickly.

Overall this game is a novel take on the scratchcard genre with a low buy in to try even if you start in real cash mode, add the big jackpot in and there are many marbelous (we had to!) possibilities to be had.
