People have been playing lotteries for a very long time. In fact, lotteries began on an official basis as far back as 205 BCE! In Europe, the first ever national lotteries were drawn by the kings and queens themselves as somewhat of a royal event. Since then it has become a staple in every country and is easily the most popular form of gaming across the population as a whole. It goes without saying, then, that the online lottery was only a matter of time, and it too has become a smash hit amongst gamers and lotto fanatics alike.
The online lottery is, as the name implies, an online version of the traditional lottery that originally made the game famous. This means that players are able to purchase their lottery tickets online and even partake in a series of other related things as part of the fun. This can include catching up on the latest lottery results (both online and offline events), reading stories from the latest big winners, comparing all the latest odds on the most popular lotteries both locally and nationally, being able to purchase discounted lottery tickets and even take part in free lottery events for online players only.
One of the most popular forms of online lottery is 49’s Lotto, otherwise known as just “49’s”. 49’s Lotto is a British lottery that is all about the draws. There are two lottery draws taking place each day, every day of the week. A total of six main numbers are drawn with a bonus number known as the ‘booster’, from a pool of 49 balls (hence the name 49’s Lottery). Players can win a whopping £601 for just 3 matching numbers on a £1 ticket!
Most online betting sites have a lottery-dedicated page, and it is here that you can ensure your ticket in the next big draw. William Hill Sports is a good place to go if you’re new to the craze, as they have all the big events covered and an easy-to-navigate site. Just click on the event that fancies you and let the fun begin! You can visit us at sports.williamhill.com/bet/en-gb/lotto/49S/49-s-6-ball.html
