Concerns have been raised over an increasing number of people becoming addicted to scratchcards

A new study, has revealed that people generally do not believe that spending large amounts of scratchcards to be comparable to a gambling addiction.

Portuguese now spend around 4 million euros a day on scratchcards, 16 times more than just a decade ago. This is almost three times the amount spent across the border in Spain, with Portugal also topping the per capita spend in the whole of Europe.
