What is Lotto Betting?
Lotto/Numbers betting is the name we give to betting at fixed odds on the results of certain national and international lotteries, 49’s and other similar Numbers Draws. Instead of buying a ticket, you place a bet on the numbers you think will come up, and if your chosen numbers match the numbers drawn, you win. Check out the rules and payouts on the Lotto games here.
