What is the best bet in lucky numbers?

Single bet type that lucky numbers punters most often play when betting on lucky numbers.

The Lucky Numbers Jackpot is a lottery bet type that pays the most on any Lucky Number draw.  The bet is unique in that even when a punter does not catch all the numbers, he gets a payout for matching some of the winning numbers.  For example, in the SA Powerball, a punter selects 5 and a Powerball.  If he matches all 5 plus the Powerball, he gets R2 Million for an R1 bet and matching 5 numbers only will net him/her R50,000, matching 4 numbers and the Powerball will win him/her R5,000 and so on with the payouts getting lesser.  This bet type gives the punter a chance to recoup his money even if he/she does not win the Jackpot.

Lucky Numbers betting terminology

Acronyms, slang, phrases or betting terminology used by lucky numbers punters in South Africa.

Punters have several ways of referring to markets and bet types when placing Lucky Number bets or referring to the lotto draw itself.

  • What does “Double” in Lucky Numbers mean?

In Lucky Numbers, if a lottery draw’s structure is such that there are Main balls drawn first then a Bonus Ball, a Double refers to a punter requesting to lay a bet on 1 Main Ball plus the Bonus Ball, that is, a bet on two balls/numbers hence a Double.

  • What does “Quick Pick” in Lucky Numbers mean?

If a punter does not have the time or motivation to pick his/her own desired numbers in a Lucky Number draw, he/she may request a Quick Pick where the system picks random numbers for the punter for the desired market.

  • What does “Bonus Ball” in Lucky Numbers mean?

Generally, there are two types of Lucky Number draws.  The first type is where random lotto balls are drawn from a drum (6 for the SA Main Lottery) and an extra ball is drawn from the same drum to increase chances of the punter receiving a payout.  The extra ball is called the Bonus Ball.  The second type of drawing has balls drawn from one drum (Main Balls) and another ball drawn from a second drum.  The ball drawn from the second drum is called the Bonus Ball (but can be called by different names as specified by the lotto draw, it might be called the Powerball, BoosterBall, Star Ball etc).

How do lucky numbers betting payouts work on Sports Bet?

A punter with a credit balance can withdraw their winnings at any time. Once a withdrawal has been requested, SportsBet will determine if the punter is FICA (Financial Intelligence Centre Act) compliant and if so, the funds will be transferred to the punter’s bank account.  It normally takes less than 3 working days for the punter to receive their funds.

How do you read lucky numbers odds on Sports Bet?

Punters must know how to read Lucky Numbers betting odds before making any bet. The odds show the potential payout after a successful bet. SportsBet displays all its odds in decimal format.

Is it better to bet over or under?

The Over/Under market in Lucky Numbers cannot be predicted by using any historical or probabilistic analysis as each draw has no bearing whatsoever on the subsequent draws.  The chances of a Bonus Ball being Over/Under (sometimes called Hi-Lo) is the same so there is no advantage in betting either Over or Under (Hi or Lo).

What is the most profitable online lucky numbers betting strategy?

Lucky Numbers betting by its nature is not suited to strategies used in other sports to get an edge.  Each lotto draw is not dependent on the preceding draw results so there are limited strategies that will work to determine the current draw results.

Bet on Ball Sum Over/Under

Betting on Over/Under of the sum of the drawn balls is an exotic Lucky Numbers market that has proven to be popular with punters.  Although there is no clear pattern on the Ball Sum, a punter can observe past results and take a bet on the Under or Over.  A punter would expect at least an Under after a run of Overs, it is just a matter of choosing when to place the bet. This is especially effective with frequent lotto draws like the live BetGames and Mega 7 which SportsBet offers.

Bet on Live Games

SportsBet offers BetGames TV which shows live lotto draws and each draw occurs every 5 minutes.  BetGames offers exotic markets which are very popular with punters and some punters consistently play the same market and show a profit on their bets.  Some of the popular bets are on ball Colors, Total Sum and Odd/Even.  These markets have proved to be popular with punters and are easier to predict the outcomes and hence make a profit.
