Can I Use My Scratch Card To Check More Than One Result?
No! You may only use one Scratch card to check one result. To check another result of interest, you will require a new Scratch card. If you misuse a Scratch card by attempting to check another result different from the first one checked, you will be penalised as having used the card, and will be presented with the appropriate error message.
Note: The same process can be used by the West African countries. However, the SMS format is exclusively Nigerian.
