How to Play UK 49s in South Africa + Hot Tips to Help You Win

Even though the draw takes place in England, the twice-daily UK 49s is a hot favourite among punters in South Africa. Some reasons it's popular with lottery or Lucky Numbers players is because of its frequency and the relatively small number of balls. This combined with the fact that online betting sites like BetwayHollywoodbetsGbetsSupabets and BET.co.za offer so many ways to bet on the UK 49s, makes it one worth writing about!

The UK 49s lunchtime draw takes place at 14h30 and the UK 49s teatime draw is at 19h30 depending on the time of year. But don't worry, most online betting sites in South Africa have a countdown timer for each lottery so you'll always know when they're about to start.

How UK 49s works 

To learn how to play UK 49s in South Africa, you will need to know how this twice-daily lottery works. The UK 49s lotteries are 6/49 draws, meaning 5 numbers (plus a bonus ball) are drawn from a drum of 49 balls. The bonus ball is called the booster and betting is available with or without it.

There are many ways to play UK 49s but your aim is always to make correct predictions about which balls will be drawn. The amount you bet and the various outcomes you choose to predict are for you to decide. 

When playing UK 49s, you can choose to predict the outcome of 1 ball, 2 balls, 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls or 6 balls drawn at various odds, depending on whether your bet includes the bonus ball or not. There are also bets you can take related to the total sum of the balls drawn and whether balls will be odd or even, single digits or not.

UK 49s betting options

As mentioned earlier, when playing UK 49s in South Africa, you don't have to predict all the balls drawn if you don't want to. You can place bets on any number of balls, including the bonus ball. The more balls you bet on, the higher your odds and payout will be, but the smaller your chance is of winning. 

Aside from the regular draw, other UK 49s betting options include Draw Sum Odd/Even and Over/Under which include markets with or without the bonus ball.

How to win UK 49s 

How to win UK 49s is all about what you hope to achieve with your bets. The best thing about betting on this lottery is that you can choose exactly how much risk you want to take and therefore how easy or hard it is to win when you play UK 49s in South Africa. 

For example, choosing to predict one correct number (with the bonus ball) in the UK 49s draw has an implied probability of 15.38% which means your chances of winning this bet are about 1 in 6 times.

When you play UK 49s in South Africa, your payout will always reflect the odds available, so if you want a better chance of winning, take a safer bet at small odds. But if you want to win a lot of money with a small stake, take a riskier bet at bigger odds.
