Bet On Lottery Numbers

Whilst many people are happy to buy their lottery tickets in the usual way, betting on lotteries has become incredibly popular. Rather than spend £2 on a UK Lotto ticket, canny punters are aiming for better odds by picking numbers that are drawn on games such as The New York, Irish, Spanish and Euromillions lotteries. By betting you have the chance to win on single numbers and the odds are usually better for two and three correct numbers compared to the prizes on offer by playing direct.

With lottery betting you're actually placing a bet on the numbers being drawn - not actually playing the game. Your money also isn't going into a pool! The odds are fixed so if you win you know exactly how much you'll win. The video above explains how betting on a lottery - in this case the daily 49s draw - can be done.

Which Lotteries Can I Bet On?

The lottery you bet on is entirely up to you but there's a wide choice:

You can also find bookies who offer bets on the Singapore and other worldwide lottos. Note that as of April 2018, UK consumers have been banned from betting on the outcome of Euromillions at UK bookmakers. This brings the game in line with existing regulations for UK National Lottery draws.

Lottery Ticket Services

There are a number of lottery ticket services online. Amongst these are TheLotter,,, Lotto Social, Lottobytext, Love My Lotto, and Lottoland. The nature of these sites varies from purchasing tickets and placing you in syndicates to simply offering bets on lottos. We'll be reviewing all of them in due course but if you're looking to bet on lotteries then we advise sticking with the bookmakers listed above.

Bet On Lottery Offers

We recommend that you use a well known brand to place your lottery number bets. Bookmakers such as Paddy Power, William Hill, Coral, Bet365, Ladbrokes and Betfred all have channels specifically for lotteries.
