It’s been just over a year since we first announced that the Triple Cashword Blue scratchcard was removed from sale.
Remarkably, National Lottery have had to pull the new version of this scratchcard – Triple Cashword Purple scratchcard – for a similar issue.
Although they have not announced this properly, a notice on the National Lottery scratchcard page showed this earlier today:
Although it doesn’t elaborate on the typeface issue, we have seen issues where players have been confused between ‘O’ and ‘Q’ in the ‘your letters’ section of the scratchcard.
EDIT: National Lottery have confirmed that the issue is with the letter ‘I’ is a different typeface between ‘your letters’ and the ‘word grid’.
And unlike the Triple Cashword Blue – where all scratchcards were removed from sale immediately – scratchcards that are still in display and yet to be activated seem to good to be sold.
So, you might see these cashword scratchcards around for a bit longer, before they fully dissappear.
There is no news on the number of jackpot prizes that are likely to be affected, although there are yet to be any of the five scratchcard prizes of £300,000 claimed.
