What are Lucky Numbers?
When you are betting on Lucky Numbers, you will not be betting on the actual lotto itself, but you will be betting on the outcome of lotteries from all over the world. If you win any amount of money betting on Lucky Numbers, the money will be paid out not by the official lottery operator but by your bookmaker like Sportpesa or any other bookmaker you might have placed the bet with. One major difference between lotto and lucky numbers is that when you are playing lotto, you will be rewarded for getting a few numbers correctly even if you miss some, but with lucky numbers betting, all your predictions have to be correct otherwise your bet would lose.
