The good news about playing Lucky numbers with Hollywoodbets is that our payouts are not pool-based. Usually, in pool-based payouts, the more people that correctly predict the same numbers in a lottery, the less money each player wins. But with fixed odds, the payouts are the same no matter how many winners there are.

For example, when betting on fixed odds lotto, let’s say you bet three numbers on SA Powa Numbas. If you stake R10, you are guaranteed a payout of R13 500 if all of your numbers are drawn.
