The Scratch-R is a lottery feature/mini-game available via the Kwik-E-Mart. The regular Scratch-R was introduced to the game on January 30, 2013, and the Golden Scratch-R was released on February 28, 2013.
The Scratch-R is a minigame which was added to The Simpsons: Tapped Out on January 30, 2013 along with the Valentine's Day 2013 Event. Each ticket costs the player 250 Money and you are guaranteed to make a profit of at least 100 Money every time you play. You have to wait six hours before you are able to buy a ticket for Money again, or you can pay three Donuts for a ticket instantly.

Golden Scratch-REditDonuts. Each ticket costs $0.99/£0.69/€0.89. The odds of wining the jackpot are low, but the odds of getting a more unusual combination are higher than when playing on the regular Scratch-R. As of March 2013, it was the most-purchased item in the store, despite being there for the shortest amount of time. This could be due to the fact that twelve Donuts are priced at $1.99/£1.49/€1.79 and buying two Scratch-R's for $1.98/£1.38/€1.78 is guaranteed to give at least twelve Donuts for a lower price. A poll was created on the Official game Forum about how many Donuts people had won for the Golden Scratch-R, and a surprisingly high fraction of people claiming to have won the jackpot of 100 Donuts.
There is a slightly higher chance of getting nine Donuts (33.33%) than getting six Donuts (30.37%).

It is, like the other Scratch-R games, played from the Kwik-E-Mart. The Platinum Scratch-R is played with real money like the Golden Scratch-R. It was released on March 1, 2016, available for only three days.
