How To Identify A Google Play Gift Card

Being able to identify a Google Play gift card when you see one is important, especially for a newbie.

1. Check Google Play Card’s Code

One of the ways to quickly identify an original Google Play gift card is via the number of codes on it. They are different based on the denomination of the gift card. Generally, there are 16 digits of code on the back of a Google Play card. However, a $100 gift card has 21 digits, while a $10 Google Play gift card has 20 digits. You will find a serial number written at the top of the barcode. If the gift card was purchased at an on-site store, you will most likely find the code at the front. Any Google Play gift card with less than 16 digit code is most likely fake.
