Red Card is a scratch card game by Gluck Games. The game features a field of 49 soccer balls. Behind six are red cards and 43 are trophies. For each trophy you pick, your wins goes up. However, pick a red card and you lose. The player may cash out and quit at any point.

The game brings up questions about how the return should be defined. If you define it as the average amount bet to get to a win of 3.5x, to 3.5, I get 99.534%, which ain't bad.

So, please check out my new page on Red Card and let me know what you think. As always, I welcome all questions, comments, and corrections. You can also play the demo game for free.

The question for the poll is would you play Red Card? Multiple votes allowed.

If anyone can find out the win past 85x, I'd be interested to know. You can drag and pick five or six balls at the same time.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thanks! Strange there is a jump of 20 from 65 to 85, and then only 15 from 85 to 100.

No its not.
A scratch card is a physical item while red card is obviously a video game depicting a screen that might be likened to a scratch card or to a bunch of attractive models carrying suitcases. I guess some people like to look at scantily clad models and some people like to look at soccer balls. Well, that's okay. I know which group I fall into.

>>>>>>>>>>>The game brings up questions about how the return should be defined.
Kenny Rogers answered that question for us long ago.
There is no return whatsoever until the player decides he will no longer press his luck but will instead hit the cash out button in fear that otherwise his next selection will be one of the dreaded "You Lose It All, Chump" red cards. Its sort of like waiting for that dreaded number between six and eight.

No its not. . . . . .

Your reference to Red Card as a 'scratch-card game' did make it difficult for me to locate the demo game on the Gluck webpage, where Red Card is found under the subtitle "Arcade Games" and is not found under the subtitle "Scratch Card Games."

Mathematically, I think of Red Card as a Keno variant.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.
