Who doesn’t want to see the disappointment on a sibling’s face when they realise a massive scratch card jackpot isn’t real? I know I do.
You will find people who think the ‘fake scratch card’ prank is a mean trick to play, and they’d be right. But it’s also bloody funny!
On this page, I will give you the lowdown on fake cards, best prank videos and a few cute ways to use fake cards for special occasions.
WHAT ARE FAKE SCRATCH CARDS?
Fake scratch cards are convincing reproductions of real-world game cards. They’re used to prank people into believing they’ve won a significant jackpot. It goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) you can’t win any money or prizes with fake cards.
The best way to prank someone with a fake card is to pass it off between a couple of real cards. Buy two or three National Lottery game cards from the shop, before you hand them to the person you want to prank, slip the fake between the legit scratch cards.

Now you know why people buy fake scratch cards; you’ll probably be wondering if anyone falls for this prank. Oh, yes! They fall for it, watch the hilarious videos below to see for yourself.

It’s worthing point out that you should be careful about who you choose to prank. It might not be the best idea to give the card to an elderly relative with a dodgy ticker. Although, as you can see in the video below, some Grandpa’s deserve a good pranking.
