How Betgames works
7 winning balls out of 42 are randomly selected to the game tube. The draw is deemed to have taken place when at least 7 winning balls are selected. If more than 7 balls are placed in the tube only the first 7 balls are counted and the other balls in the tube are ignored.
There is only one betting round and players can place their bets on all available outcomes for the upcoming draw. A betting round takes place between the game draws and lasts about four minutes. Draws of the game run every 5 minutes daily.
How to play

- Select a betting category and choose the outcome of the draw;
- Enter your stake in the bet slip field Amount;
- Press the Place bet button.
