2 Betting Rules on Lottery Draws

This section is related to the betting on the results of the world famous lotteries. Such betting product is called Lucky Numbers.

2.1 Lucky Numbers

2.1.1 General rules

  1. All Lucky Numbers bets are based on the numbers that are drawn from the respective lotteries.
  2. The dates and times must be displayed in the local time where the Lucky Numbers bet was placed.
  3. Any Bonus Ball selections should be indicated as such.
  4. Draws where the bonus ball is included as a regular ball number should be indicated as such.
  5. Draws where the bonus ball is excluded as a regular ball number should be indicated as such.
  6. Bonus Ball or Powerball bet types are applicable to the Bonus Ball or Powerball only.
  7. In lotteries where more than one bonus ball is to be drawn, only the first of the bonus balls will count as a winning ball. The other supplementary balls will not be considered a winner.
  8. All Lucky Numbers bets for a specific draw must be placed and confirmed before the first number is drawn. If, for any reason, a bet is placed after the first number is drawn, the bet will be void irrespective of whether it wins or loses.
  9. If a lotto draw time is rescheduled to another time within 24 hours of the advertised time of the draw all bets on that draw will stand.
  10. If a lotto draw time is rescheduled by more than 24 hours of the advertised time of the draw all bets on that draw will be deemed void.
  11. If, for any reason, all the details necessary to settle any market for a specific draw cannot be obtained within 48 hours then all bets on that market will be void.
  12. If the specified number of balls to be drawn is changed all bets on that draw will be void.
  13. If the specified number of balls available is changed all bets on that draw will be void.
  14. All of the selected numbers need to be drawn in order for the bet to win. For example, if a customer selects 4 numbers and 3 or less of those balls are drawn, there is no payout. Likewise with 2 and 3 numbers.

2.1.2 Lottery types

All Lucky Numbers lotteries a customer bets on are divided into two groups: Standard type and Powerball type lotteries.

  • Standard type lotteries may or may not have a Bonus Ball option. In those lotteries that have a bonus ball option, the bonus ball is selected from the main set of balls after the draw of regular balls has been finalised.
  • In the Powerball type lotteries, the Bonus Ball or “Powerball” should be drawn from a secondary set of balls which may have a different number of balls to the main ball set. The following draws are considered as Powerball type lotteries: Australia Powerball, French Loto, Greece Joker, India Thunderball, South Africa Powerball, South Africa Powerball Plus, Switzerland Powerball, UK Thunderball, USA Mega Millions and USA Powerball.

2.1.3 Standard type lottery markets

For resulting purposes and unless otherwise stated, the Bonus Ball, if applicable, will count towards the 1, 2, 3 and 4 Number bet selections.

The following markets are offered on the Standard type lottery draws:

  1. 1 Number – a bet to predict 1 ball number drawn in a lottery draw;
  2. 2 Numbers – a bet to predict 2 ball numbers drawn in a lottery draw;
  3. 3 Numbers – a bet to predict 3 ball numbers drawn in a lottery draw;
  4. 4 Numbers – a bet to predict 4 ball numbers drawn in a lottery draw;
  5. Bonus Ball – a bet to predict the bonus ball number drawn;
  6. Bonus Ball Low / High – a bet to predict the value of the bonus ball number being within the low or high half of the ball set it’s drawn from. If the ball set does not split evenly and the “middle” ball is drawn then all bets on this market will lose. For example, the bonus ball will be drawn from a set of 49 balls then the low numbers are from 1 to 24 and high numbers are from 26 to 49. In this case, number 25 is the bookmaker’s ball and all bets on high-low will be losers if number 25 is drawn as the bonus ball;
  7. Bonus Ball Odd / Even – a bet to predict the bonus ball number being either odd or even;
  8. Bonus Ball Single – a bet to predict the bonus ball being a single digit number, i.e., 1 to 9.

2.1.4 Powerball type lottery markets

In the Powerball type lotteries, the Bonus Ball or Powerball will be drawn from the secondary set of balls. For resulting purpose, the Bonus Ball or Powerball does NOT count towards the 1, 2, 3 and 4 Number bet selections.

The following markets are offered on the Powerball type lottery draws:

  1. 1 Number – a bet to predict 1 ball number drawn in a lottery draw. The selected number must be drawn from the main set of balls in order to win;
