How to Play UK 49s in South Africa

Uk49s Lotto is by far one of the most popular lottos to play in South Africa and the UK.

It’s one of the few lottos where players have the opportunity to play twice a day. These Draws are known as the Uk49s Lunchtime results and Teatime results Draws.

uk 49s

Even though UK49 is a lotto game in England, the twice daily draw UK 49s is a favourite among punters in South Africa on various online Betting sites in ZA. Some reasons the UK 49s is popular with Lucky Numbers players is because of the regular twice-daily draws and the relatively small number of balls to choose from, plus some great and unique betting options for lotto players. This combined with the fact that online betting sites like Hollywoodbets, Gbets, Supabets, afribet and Playbets offer so many different betting markets, odds and ways to bet on the UK 49s, makes it one worth writing about.

About uk 49s

UK49s is one of the most frequently played games in the United kingdom and allows players to set their own bet amount and choose how many numbers to play both lunchtime and teatime draws. There are two draws every day – a lunchtime draw and a teatime draw – and five different ways to win. Learn more about UK49s on this page, including upcoming UK49s predictions.

49's was launched in the late 1990s as an alternative way to enjoy lottery games, but without participating in the main National Lottery game itself.

49s is owned and operated by a consortium of UK bookmakers through Satellite Information Services, the company that transmits television pictures into most UK betting shops.

What time is UK49s Drawn?

Draws take place twice-daily at 12:49 (lunchtime) and 17:49 (teatime) local time and are broadcast live by Satellite Information Services in participating betting shops. Results are published on the official 49's website and on participating bookmaker websites shortly after the completion of each draw. Players can enter up to 15 minutes before each draw.

Because players are betting on the outcome of the game rather than the game itself, any amount can be staked; however, some bookmakers apply stake and payout limits when playing 49’s, which players should be aware of before trying to place bets.

How to Play UK49s Lunchtime

UK49’s Lunchtime is a draw game where six main numbers and a Booster Ball are drawn from a pool of 1 to 49. Your goal is to match numbers with those randomly selected in a given draw. The game differs from other lotteries in two key ways. Firstly, there is no fixed ticket cost. Instead, you choose how much you want to bet, with the size of your bet determining how much you could win.

Secondly, you can choose how many numbers you want to try and match, from one to five. This lets you play the game however you want, whether you want to win a smaller prize for matching just one of the numbers or a substantial sum for matching all five. The catch is that in order to win, you have to match all the numbers you pick. If you pick three numbers, you must match all three, and you would not win a prize for matching any fewer.

Playing Lunchtime from South Africa

As a UK draw game, 49’s Lunchtime cannot be played in retail betting shops in South Africa. It can, however, be played online from South Africa and other countries the world over. Read on to find out how you can play UK49’s Lunchtime online:
  • Select an online betting service or bookmaker which offers 49’s Lunchtime odds.
  • Choose to play either a six-number draw or a seven-number draw. Six-number draws do not include the Booster Ball, meaning your odds of winning are longer but your potential winnings are larger.
  • Choose how many numbers you want to try and match, between one and five.
  • Choose what those numbers are from a range of 1 to 49.
  • Decide how much you want to bet.
  • Pay for your bet.

How to Play UK49's Teatime

UK49's Teatime is unlike many traditional lotteries, as you can choose how many numbers you want to play. Six numbers between 1 and 49 are selected in every draw, followed by a seventh ‘Booster’ number, and the objective is to match the numbers you chose with the winning ones.

You only win a prize for matching all of the numbers you pick, so if you play five numbers, you must match all five to win; pick four numbers and you must match all four, and so on. There is no fixed entry cost; you can choose how much you would like to wager, giving you more flexibility and more control over the kind of prize you could win.

You can also choose to enter either the six-number draw or the seven-number draw that includes the Booster. The additional number makes it easier to win a prize, so the payouts are slightly lower in the seven-number draw.

Playing Teatime from South Africa

49's Teatime is played in betting shops across the UK, but cannot be played the same way in South Africa. However, you can also play UK49's Teatime online from around the world. Here’s how to play online from South Africa:
  • Find an online betting provider that offers wagers on 49’s Teatime.
  • Decide whether you are entering the six-number draw or the seven-number draw.
  • Choose how many numbers you would like to match, from one to five. Remember that to win you must match all the numbers you pick, but the more numbers you pick, the bigger the prize.
  • Choose your numbers from a range between 1 and 49.
  • Set the amount you would like to wager.
  • Follow the instructions on the site to pay for your wager. If it is your first visit, you may need to create an online account.

There are many benefits to playing online. Firstly, your numbers are kept safe and secure in your account, meaning you’ll never lose an entry. Prizes can be paid directly to your account if you win and with some providers you can set up a subscription, so you’ll never miss a draw.
