Bet on your favourite lotto games with the 'Bonus King' at Betfred, offering fixed odds on a range of lottery games.
Many people play the lottery, but did you know that placing a fixed odds bet can often give you a bigger return on investment? There are no prizes for getting just one right when playing the regular lottery, but you can place a fixed odds bet on that number or a combination of your favourite numbers being drawn at Betfred. You can have great fun betting on various outcomes of popular lotto games with countless windfall opportunities and there are loads of different ways to maximise the entertainment of the draw.
Betting on lottery results is incredibly easy to do. Open an account at Betfred and get your first bet matched up to £25. From there its as simple as picking your numbers as normal, but with the added bonus that you can choose your own stakes, rather than being restricted to paying a set amount.
Once registered at Betfred, you can download a dedicated lotto smartphone app for your Android or iPhone device and stake £5 to receive a £5 free bet. The same offer applies to fist time users of the new Windows 8 app, available on both desktop and mobile.
Betfred Lottery Games
Betfred customers can place fixed odds bets on a large variety of popular Lotto games from all over the world including Irish Lottery, Daily Million, Numbers 49s, Spanish Lottery, German Lottery, Canadian Lottery, Greek Lottery and NY Lotto.
Choose to play one draw or add a number of future draws depending on which lottery you intend to play. There are various ways in which you can bet on lottery games and we have detailed those offered at Betfred below.
Betfred Lottery Bets
Straight - Select which lottery game you wish to play and whether you'd like to include the bonus ball in your bet for a slightly smaller return, but a bigger chance of winning. Then choose how many numbers (1-5) you wish to play per line, noting that the more numbers you add to a line the bigger the potential payout will become and either select your own balls or choose lucky dip. Once you're happy with your picks, enter the amount you wish to stake and select how many draws you wish to play before confirming and placing your bets.
In an example of a straight bet, you could choose to bet on 1 number at odds of 6/1 or 3 numbers at odds of 625/1 which would both yeild far bigger potential returns on a £1 investment than a regular lottery stake.
Multiples - These are similar to Straight bets, but allow you to cover more possible outcomes with up to 8 numbers per line. Select how many numbers (1-8) you wish to play and then chose to play a single, double, treble, trixie, patent, 4-fold, Yankee, Lucky 15, 5-fold, Canadian, Lucky 31 or accumulator bearing in mind that the number of bets required will be significantly increased. A multiple bet offers a much greater chance of success with more potential outcomes covered, but a larger total stake is needed to cover the amount of bets required.
Betfred also offer special markets allowing you to bet on a whole range of outcomes. These vary depending on which lottery game you wish to bet on and include markets such as; First Ball Out Odd/Even, Colour Of First Ball Drawn, Total Sum Of First Six Numbers Drawn, Bonus Ball Odd/Even, Bonus Ball Colour and Bonus Ball Number.
