Online Lotto Betting With Betfred

Article Updated On 9th June 2020

Betfred are one of the few bookmakers who really know about betting on lottery results. They have one of the most extensive selections of markets to choose from plus they even boast an app. Unlike William Hill, Ladbrokes and Coral for example, Betfred even highlight lotto markets under their own designated channel. If you want to bet on the results of the Greek, Polish, Australian, Spanish or French games then Betfred is the site for you.

Betfred Lotto

One thing that makes Betfred stand out in this market is that it offers new customers a welcome bonus. We don't believe that any other bookmaker offers a lotto betting welcome bonus. To take advantage of this offer, open an account at Betfred and place your first bet of 5 on Betfred Lotto and they will give you 10 in free bets and 5 free scratchcards on Ted. Terms and conditions do apply. Note that players can only choose a Betfred Lotto welcome offer or a Betfred sportsbook offer, not both!

Bet On 13 Different Lottos

Betfred has the largest number of lotto markets available - 13 in total. These include Irish, Daily Million, Polish, German, Greek, French, New York, Canadian, Spanish, Australian, 49s and German lotteries. The most recent addition is The Nifty Fifty which is Betfred's own game. It launched in May 2020 and is part of the brand's goal to become the bookmaker for online lottery result wagering. Joining this array of markets is a Specials section which features a lot of bonus ball wagering options.

To place a bet on a Betfred lottery market you first select the game you wish to play. You're then asked whether you wish to select new numbers or make multiple lucky dips. The latter is a very quick way to generate tickets! If you decide to select your own numbers you're then presented with the available numbers in the draw. Lucky Dip options are shown as well as an option to include the bonus ball. Note that the latter isn't always available. In addition including the bonus ball reduces the odds and these are automatically adjusted during your selections.

Lotto Results & Promotions

Once you've picked your numbers you can set how many weeks and which draws you wish to wager on. You can pick up to 4 weeks and one or two lotteries (where available). For example you can bet on up to 8 future New York lottos by selecting 4 weeks plus the Thursday and Sunday draw. After choosing your draws it's simply a case of choosing your wager. For each line of numbers it's possible to choose Doubles, Trebles, Four Folds, Canadian and Lucky 31 bets (where available).

You can review the results of all the featured lotteries at Betfred. The last ten results are usually shown for each of the games mentioned above, but you can set dates to find results for other periods. Unfortunately there's no number check option or search to seek out the hot/cold numbers. One statistic that would be interesting is which game attracts the most interest. We suspect that 49s and the Irish Lottery are the most popular markets but it'd be cool to see just how popular the Polish and Greek games are with punters.

Our Verdict

A big thumbs up for Betfred in the betting lotto department is that regularly they run player promotions. At time of writing (June 2020) they had just extended their Missed By One offer. If you miss out on winning by just one number then you can still win something. This means that if you match 3 out of your chosen 4 balls, or 4 balls out of your chosen 5, then Betfred will ease the pain and return your bet as a free bet, up to 10. This offer is now available on all their featured markets. Terms apply.

Overall we're very impressed with the Fixed Odds Lotto options at Betfred. With a welcome offer, dedicated mobile app and regular promotions they're definitely more active in this area than some others bookmakers. The addition of The Nifty Fifty game demonstrates that Betfred intend to develop as the bookmaker of online lottery results wagering. If you're serious about lotto odds then in our view Betfred is the bookmaker of your choice.
