Playing Lotto 6/49

Lotto 6/49 is an exciting game of chance in which the player chooses 6 numbers from one to forty-nine. You can also choose the QuickPick option, in which the terminal randomly generates your numbers for you. To win the jackpot, you simply need to match all six of your numbers to the numbers drawn. However, you can win a cash prize for only match 3 numbers to the winning numbers drawn. Your chances of winning the jackpot may not be great, but your chances of winning a cash prize are pretty good.

Playing Lotto Plus

Lotto Plus is similar to Lotto 6/49. It is an extension of the Lotto on-line game and provides a second chance to win in the Lotto 6/49 game. In fact, Lotto Plus cannot be played separately from Lotto 6/49. To play Lotto Plus, you simply play the same ticket you bought for Lotto 6/49. It costs an extra $1 to play Lotto Plus but it provides a whole other chance to win. Both Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Plus are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday. In both games, 7 numbers are drawn at random. He drawing can be seen live on your local TV.

Playing SportStake

The SportStake game involves predicting the outcomes of 12 predetermined football matches in South Africa, England, and other countries. For each of the 12 games, the player must choose whether it will be a Home Win, a Draw, or an Away Win. To Win SportStake, the player needs to get all 12 guesses right. A player can also win significant prizes for getting 11 or 10 guesses correct.
