How to Play the SA Lotto

The SA Lotto is a 6/52 game. After the initial six balls are drawn from the set of 52, a seventh ball (Bonus Ball) is then drawn from the 46 balls still in the drum. 

In this draw, you can select one ball and bet on that specific number to be drawn, you can also select several numbers to be drawn. 

Remember, if you pick one number, that specific number needs to be drawn in order for your bet to win. If you select four numbers, all four of your chosen numbers must be drawn in order for you to win. 

Take a look at some of the examples below:

1 Ball (Bonus)

Choose a number between 1-52. If your chosen number is drawn as the Bonus Ball, you are a winner! You will win 5.7 x your stake back. 

  • Playing R10 will win your R57 PLUS you get back the R10 you played.

Total amount won = R67

3 Balls (Main Set & Bonus)

Choose three numbers between 1-52. If your chosen numbers are drawn across the Main set AS WELL AS Bonus Ball, you are a winner! You will win 475 x your stake back. 

  • Playing R10 will win your R4 750 PLUS you get back the R10 you played.

Total amount won = R4 760

Bonus Ball Odd

This is a pretty simple bet type. Simply select the market and wait for the draw to take place. If the bonus ball is an ODD number, you’re a winner!

  • Playing R10 will win your R9 PLUS you get back the R10 you played.

Total amount won = R19

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.
