The National Lottery ‘Monopoly Millionaire ‘ and ‘£150,000 A Month For A Year’ cards are two of the most popular scratch cards in the country. Nevertheless, the National Lottery also produces other big jackpot cards. Let’s take a closer look at the cards with jackpots still available to win.

CASH 7s : 0 x £1 MILLION
The CASH 7s card was undoubtedly worth a look but all the top prizes have now been claimed. There is a 1 in 3.50 overall chance of winning a Prize on each card in this game.
MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRE : 3 x £1 MILLION JACKPOTS

There is a 1 in 3.35 overall chance of winning a Prize on each Scratchcard. There are 21,957,120 in the initial print run of this card.
JUNGLE JACKPOT : 2 x £300,000 JACKPOTS

MEGA CASHWORD PINK – 2 x £1m JACKPOTS
If you’re going to play the MEGA CASHWORD series of cards, you’d be smarter to pick the PINK card. It currently has 2 jackpots remaining; another ‘Cashword’ card worth considering is the ‘Cashword Multiplier’ with five prizes worth £300,000.
LUCKY NUMBERS – 0 x £300,000 JACKPOTS
This card was an exciting option to consider, but with no top jackpots available, you should try your luck with another card.
50x – 1 x £1 MILLION JACKPOTS
It’s the card with the uninspiring name but lots of jackpots still up for grabs. 50x currently has 1 top prizes of £1 million. Along with a big stack of jackpots, this scratch card also gives players 38 chances to win. It costs £5 to play, and there is a 1 in 3.50 overall chance of winning a prize.
WHICH NATIONAL LOTTERY CARD IS BEST?
Defining the ‘best’ scratch card is difficult, do you mean the National Lottery scratch card with the best chance of winning? Or the card with the biggest jackpot? Or the scratch card which is the most fun to play? Let’s assume you mean the game card with the largest prize pot for now. It that’s the case, check out the list above and look for games that still have jackpots unclaimed.
It’s worth noting that cards with colossal jackpots often have smaller mid-level prizes. While it’s true that Scratch cards in the £2 – £3 range do generally have smaller jackpots, but typically have more of them. Statistically, that could give you a better chance.
If you’re looking for a recommendation for a fun National Lottery card. My personal favourite is the Monopoly range of games. These themed scratch cards always have a decent jackpot, and the gameplay isn’t too taxing. You can also play ‘Monopoly‘ scratch card online at Jackpot Joy.
NATIONAL LOTTERY SCRATCHCARD WINNERS
We all dream of winning a big jackpot on the National Lottery scratchcards and lotto draws. For some lucky people, the dream becomes a reality. In this section, I will give updates on the latest jackpot winners.
In October 2019, John Reid won £250,000 playing the National Lottery Triple Jackpot Scratchcard. John was working as a relief Pub manager at the Railway Tavern in Bexley, South London. He noticed the bar was short on Lemons and popped to the shop to replenish the stock. The bar manager picked up two scratch cards with his fruit and header back to the pub.
Later that evening, John scratch off the first card to reveal no win, the second card was more fruitful; John believed he’d won £250 – It wasn’t until he double-checked the scratch card wearing his glasses, that the Barman noticed a small ‘k’ next to the £250. John had won a jackpot!
The story proves the old saying… When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
