Lotto betting has gained increasing popularity over the past few years and is an addition to many online sports betting platforms. There are also online betting platforms focused solely on lotto betting and offering many different options and packages tailored to lotto games. The lotto platforms usually combine the results of local and international lottery draws, as well as offering exclusive lotto games. Through online lotto betting, customers are able to participate in lotto draws from foreign countries. Online lotto betting is legal in South Africa.
How Betting on the Lotto works
Online lotto betting is similar to regular lotto playing. Players register an account with an online lotto betting platform, select the game they wish to play and then get started. Once players have chosen their game of choice, they select their lotto numbers and the amount of bets that they wish to place. These numbers then go into the lotto draw and players receive winnings based on the amount of corresponding or matching numbers they have selected. The numbers do not need to be in corresponding order. Players may also review and assess their choices before making payments. There are usually prizes or cash prizes available to players who have a certain amount of matching selected numbers, even if they have not gotten each number correct.
Online lotto betting can be more exciting than playing regular lotto tickets, as there are many more types of lotto games and options available. Online lotto betting also allows players to customize their jackpots. There are usually numbers being drawn every 5 minutes or at least a few times per day or week, so players can place more bets and earn more winnings by playing online. Some of the lotto games from a well-known online lotto betting platform include Superena Lotto, Euro Millions, Spanish Daily, Kino 15, Kino 12 and Kino 9. The unique Spanish Daily game is based on the Spanish Bonoloto and La Primitiva games and offers up to R90 million in guaranteed jackpot prizes. The Spanish Daily offers a simple 6/49 selection, with an optional bonus ball to further boost the jackpot. The Kino 15 lotto games allows players to select 15 lucky numbers from the range of 1-80. Players who select numbers that match the drawn numbers qualify for a jackpot win of R200,000. The winning amounts and jackpot prizes will vary from platform to platform. Online lotto betting platforms also provide their customers with perks such as vouchers, promotions, bonuses and rewards.
