UK49’s Lotto – Game Information

Take a look at the key features of this exciting lottery & get to know why the UK49’s is one of the most popular online lottery draws in the world.

Teatime & Lunchtime

The UK49’s is a lotto draw that takes place twice a day – once in the afternoon and once in the evening. These two draws are for all intents and purposes completely separate and independent lotto draws. Due to the structure of the UK49’s there is no such thing as a rollover that will increase your returns for the next draw. UK49’s is built on a pure odds structure – however much you bet will determine however much you win & nothing else. So, let’s take a look deeper into the two daily draws on this popular online lotto.

UK49’s Lunchtime Draw

The UK49’s lunchtime draw takes place, as you might have guessed, every day at lunchtime. The lunchtime draw happens 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The time of the lunchtime draw can change slightly day to day but the vast majority of the draws will take place at the usual time – 12:49pm GMT. This may vary from time to time so please be sure to check with your UK49’s lotto provider just in case.

UK49’s Teatime Draw

The second, and last UK49’s draw of the day is the Teatime draw. As with the lunchtime draw, it is possible that the times may vary but as a general rule the Teatime draw takes place 4:49 pm GMT. Just as with the lunchtime draw, this a lotto that draws every day of the week, every week of the month & every month of the year! The teatime UK49’s draw is a more popular lottery than the lunchtime draw – however this is not due to any advantage or bonus when playing the latter draw, simply more time in the day to sell tickets.

How to Play the UK49’s

This is where we start to veer off away from the regular lotteries that you know and how they work, the UK49’s does not work like them, none of them. Firstly, the draw is a 6 or 7 number draw but you can pick just 1 ball to play. In comparison, to play any other major lottery it is required that you choose the same amount of balls as will be drawn in total.

If you decide to only play with one ball picked, you can only expect to match 1 ball in the 6-ball drawing and your odds will reflect this. The odds of playing only 1 ball in the UK49’s is 6 to 1 – If you bet $1 and your ball is drawn, you will receive $6 including your initial stake back.

In the UK49’s you can pick to play from only 1 ball all the way up to 6 balls, with your odds multiplying every additional ball you choose to add. This is a much-loved feature of the UK49’s as it puts full control into the player’s hands. Feeling Lucky? play a 6-ball UK49’s, not feeling lucky but still want to play? Opt for the 1-ball option, it is totally up to you.
