ScratchMania Exposed — Will ScratchMania Scratch that Itch to Play?
Clicking on the scratchmania.com site, the first thing is how busy, busy, busy it is. Yes congratulations to David B. for traveling the whole world, and yes I do see your pop-up for “Give it a Spin, Get a Free Game” but enough already. The team wanted to take a look at what this scratch site had to offer, but bells and whistles kept going off. Windows pop up – yes it was fun playing a few games for free – but then another annoying window insisted we register for an account. Not quite yet. We need more information.

Games at Scratchmania
I’m not sure what my favorite scratch game would be out of the selection offered. This is an online site that provides scratches. Scratches are games that players scratch the spots to see if they have won – though in this case, it is clicking versus manual scratching. It’s an instant win or loses. There are about 25 games to play, though without registering, it’s hard to be sure. Dragon’s Treasure and Chance’s Adventure look fun. The team got into a great argument about which name was most inventive. Zombie Apocalypse won! But is that a good enough reason to register an account and play?
Beware the Bonus
This is one of those times when understanding the small print is pretty important. If you sign up and start playing with the 100% bonus, players cannot withdraw their winnings until they play an amount equivalent to 30 times the original deposit. So, if you deposit says $100 real money and gets $100 bonus money, you can’t take your winnings out until you’ve played $3,000. We did clarify (thanks to the live chat) that this can be both the original amount and winnings, but you have to bet a total of $3,000 before withdrawing any money. This bonus feature can be removed so play starts with the original deposit only – and then money can be withdrawn at any time. But do it before you start to play.
Scratchmania’s VIP Club
Another aspect of Scratchmania.com’s play is its VIP club. Players accrue one VIP point for each 10 ‘units of currency.’ Keep in mind; players forfeit their VIP points if they do not deposit to their account for 14 weeks. Money claimed through VIP points is treated the same as the initial bonus with the same rules and regulations.
Back to Winning at Scratch Mania
There is one additional threshold restriction on withdrawing winnings – if you do hit it big. They limit the maximum withdrawal to USD 20,000 per month. They continue to pay out each month until the winnings are fully paid. Okay, $20,000 per month sounds pretty good at the same time – it’s your money, right?
Who Can Play at Scratchmania.com
Almost anyone can play here except residents of the USA, Israel, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Iraq, Algeria, Morocco, Jordan, Pakistan, Tunisia, and Iran. There are also some restrictions on bonuses per household.
Who Is Scratchmania?
Scratchmania is operated by a Cyprus company called Donateu, Ltd. They are part of what looks like a bigger group called NetoPartners, which offers affiliate partnerships. There is no snail mail address or phone number. There is live chat though not 24/7 and when it isn’t open players can leave a message. There is also Call Back where players can leave a number to speak directly to an operator. There is also an online form but no direct email address.

Is Scratchmania Legit?
I’m still getting my head around electronically playing scratches. Call me old fashion, but I think I think scratches should mean pulling a coin (some countries still use them) and manually scratching each spot. Then again, there is no question we had fun playing the free game offered – until the registration window popped up.
This site does get a reserved thumbs up. It is fun, and I could see getting hooked on playing it. The only problem is the whole bonus thing offered. That’s the ‘reserved’ part.
Obviously they like to take your money but make it as difficult as possible to withdraw. Sad they don’t see they would make more if they made people happy!
Watch out for this site! The first time i played i got 7 euro’s for free so i played a couple of scratch and spin games and all of a sudden i had 80 euro’s in REAL BALANCE as that states clearly. So i’m happy and all continue playing and i get even more winnings all up to 155 euro’s again in real balance. But here is where it started i tried to withdraw my REAL balance and i got error warning so i contacted support and they sad you have to make a deposit first because the first 7 euro’s i played with where for free so i was like okay il try. So i deposit 10 euro’s from my bank to my account and started playing again this time it went completley different! i lost almost all my balance in less then 10 minutes time so i wanted to withdraw the remaining scraps of cash i had to not loose the 10 euro i deposited. But this wasnt possible they sad because you have to play 30 games minimum first! And then the bonnuses you get from those games thats the actual ammount you win in real life!. So conclusion its one big scam the site is made so you keep playing its fun and easy but before you know it you loose hundreds of euro’s i only lost 10 and i quit after that thank god.
thanks so much i have 170$ now i know its a scam thanks
It is really good gaming site, the thing most people don’t see is that if you accept the bonus they give you then you have to wager 30 times more than the bonus you received. For example if you received 100$ bonus you will have to wager 3000$ in order to withdraw. So you can ask the support that you don’t want any bonuses then you won’t have this wagering requirement.
Just read terms and conditions.
Found it impossible to withdraw winnings
I’ve played and won up to seven thousand dollars in one of the slot games and can’t retrieve the money, it’s now down to just over a thousand dollars I’ve been told by them it has to be over 7000$ but still won’t honour the withdrawal
