Betway Lucky Numbers - A beginner's guide to getting started
When it comes to Lucky Numbers betting in South Africa, Betway is a pioneer in their field. They were one of the first online bookmakers to offer betting on the SA Lotto and lotteries from around the world.
Most online betting sites now offer fixed-odds lottery betting, but Betway still boasts the widest range of Lucky Numbers games in South Africa, plus their mobile site and app are the easiest to use for playing lottery games!
Betway Lucky Numbers
From as little as R1, you can place bets on the outcome of lotteries in 28 countries from anywhere on your mobile phone. At Betway, there are more than 160 Lucky Numbers games to choose from every 24 hours.
So no matter what time of day or night you want to play, there's always a draw you can have a bet on. And with hundreds of betting markets available for each Lucky Numbers draw, there are so many ways to win!
How do Betway Lucky Numbers work?
Lucky Numbers is like betting on the lottery except for a few key differences which only help to make it more appealing and profitable. When placing a Lucky Numbers bet you aren't buying a ticket into the actual draw but rather betting on a certain outcome that can be verified.
You can try to guess all the numbers that will be drawn like in a standard lottery, or choose to predict a single number to give yourself a better chance of winning.
You can also bet on which colour the balls will be, what order the balls will be drawn, high/low numbers, odd/even numbers, single-digit numbers and much more.
The amount you win from your Lucky Numbers bet is determined by the fixed odds you get. This means you're guaranteed the same payout no matter how many other winners there are.
All the power is in your hands. The fewer numbers you choose to predict—or smaller odds you take—the better your chances of winning. But if you'd rather take a riskier bet and predict more numbers at bigger odds, you can do that too!
Betway Lucky Numbers Login
To complete your Betway Lucky Numbers login your first step is to register for an online account if you haven’t done so already. New customers get R25 free to play with, so your first bet is already taken care of!
Next, locate the Betway Login screen at the top of your screen. Enter your mobile number and password before clicking the green “Log In” button to access your Betway account. Lastly, click the Lucky Numbers tab on the main menu or carousel to start placing your bets.
Betway Lucky Numbers App
For mobile betting, you can use the Betway App to play Lucky Numbers. On the app, the process for logging in to your account and locating the Lucky Numbers page is the same.
Betway Lucky Numbers Markets
There are two Lucky Numbers bet types available at Betway, each with a range of possible markets you can bet on.
With Regular Draw bets, you must guess which numbers will be drawn like a standard lottery. The only difference is that you get to choose how many numbers you want to predict.
For example, if you select the "2 Balls" market, you'll only need to correctly predict two of the balls drawn. If any of the balls drawn match your selections, you win your bet.
With Draw Sum bets, you must predict outcomes of the draw but you do not have to pick the exact numbers that come up. Some examples of Draw Sum bets include whether the sum (total) of the balls drawn will be Odd/Even, or whether the Bonus Ball will be a single-digit (Yes/No).
Betway Lucky Numbers Odds
The odds you get for Lucky Numbers depends on how many balls (numbers) there are in the draw and which market you choose to bet on. Usually, the odds you get for predicting the exact numbers drawn are higher than other outcomes of the draw such as Draw Sum Odd/Even.
To work out your Betway Lucky Numbers payout, simply multiply your stake by the odds of your bet. Your potential return will be shown at the bottom of your betslip once you've included your stake.
Betway Lucky Numbers Payouts
Betway pays out winning bets to punters within just a few minutes of the official draw results being confirmed. Your Lucky Numbers winnings will always get paid into your online betting account from where you can withdraw them as long as your account has been FICA verified.
The easiest way to see Lucky Numbers results and if your bets have won, is to log in to your Betway account and check your balance at the top of the screen. If the amount hasn’t changed then you bet either lost or it hasn't yet been settled.
To check the status of your Lucky Numbers bet, click the menu button in the top left of your screen. Under "Account" locate the "My Bets" tab where you can see if your Lucky Numbers bet has been settled and what amount was paid if your bet won. If your bet is still pending, check the time of the draw to ensure it's complete.
