Lucky numbers with Hollywoodbets
Hollywoodbets Lucky Numbers is similar to the National Lottery (Lotto) but there are a few important differences. Instead of buying a Lotto or Lotto Plus ticket, with Lucky Numbers you place a bet (however much you choose) on your number/s being one of the Lotto balls that comes up in the draw. Please note that when betting on Lucky Numbers with Hollywoodbets Lucky Numbers, the bonus ball is included in the results, depending on what you are betting!
This is in the case of lotto draws where the bonus ball is drawn from the same drum. So in SA Lotto, there are 6 balls drawn, plus a bonus ball (7 in total) from the 49 balls. If you bet on 1, 2, 3, or 4 numbers on this draw, and one of your number is the bonus ball – it will count towards your bet being a winner.
Hollywoodbets Lucky Numbers do however however offer 1st 6 balls betting which excludes the bonus ball.
The less numbers you choose the better your chances of winning, but the less money you get. The more numbers you choose correctly, the more money you will get.

Lucky Numbers winnings
To calculate your winnings in Lucky Numbers, simply multiply the amount you chose to bet (your stake) by the odds offered on the amount of numbers which you guessed correctly.
The odds you get for each correctly guessed number varies between operators, but are roughly:
- 1 number = odds of 4/1 (5x the amount you bet)
- 2 numbers = odds of 51/1 (52x the amount you bet)
- 3 numbers = odds of 399/1 (400x the amount you bet)
- 4 numbers = odds of 2999/1 (3000x the amount you bet)
For example, if you bet R10 on 2 numbers and both came up, then your pay-out will be: R10 (Stake) x 52 (Odds) = R520

Win with Hollywoodbets Lucky Numbers
Our guess is that once you’ve played Lucky Numbers you’ll never want to play the Lotto again. We say this because with Lucky Numbers you choose for yourself how much money you want to win based on how much you’re willing to spend.
Also, when you win money in the Lotto you have to share your winnings with whoever else guessed the same numbers as you did. But when you play Lucky Numbers your pay-outs are always the same and not determined by how many other people chose your winning number/s.
