7 Lottery Words You Should Know

Common Lottery Terms to Add To Your Arsenal

New to the lottery world?

While playing the lottery – especially online – is extremely simple to pick up, there are a couple of words you might hear frequently.

LottoExpress has rounded up the top 7 lottery words every player (new or returning) should be aware of!

 

Lottery jackpotJackpot

This is the top prize in any lottery game! Most jackpot amounts range into the millions and are paid either in one lump sum or annuity payments.

Must-Try Jackpot: Spanish Lotto 6/49 is one of the few lottos in the world that offers not one – but TWO – jackpot prizes!

 

lottery Rollover

When the jackpot amount isn’t won, it is added to the next draw’s jackpot. This means jackpots increase in value, until they are won – or hit the jackpot cap.

Rollover King: US Powerball is undisputed rollover champion after it rolled over to a record-breaking 1.56 BILLION this  January!

 

lottery rolloverOdds

Odds calculate your chance of winning. The lower the odds, the better your winning chances.

Odds Master: Australian Lotto 6/45 has the best jackpot odds around at 1 in 8,145,060 – meaning this is one of the easier jackpots to win, compared to the others!

Best Deal: Australian Outback Special. For the price of 1 Australian Powerball ticket, you can play 3 lucrative Australian lotteries!

 

lotteryPrize Tiers

Prize tiers define the different cash prizes you can win, depending on the number of winning numbers you matched.

Most Prize Tiers: With 13 ways to win, EuroMillions has more prize categories than the other lottos!

 

lotteryQuick Pick

QuickPick is an option that lets you generate random numbers for your tickets instead of choosing numbers yourself.

Quick Fact: According US Powerball website, between 70-80% of tickets sold are QuickPicks – and so are majority of the jackpot winners!  Learn more about QuickPicks here.

 

lotteryDraw

A draw is when the winning numbers are selected by the official lottery operators. All lotteries have fixed draw dates, and many are drawn twice a week.

Did you know: At LottoExpress, you can select the number of draws you wish to play for in advance. This means you’ll always have a chance at the jackpot!

How to Play Lotteries Online

Your Ultimate Guide to Online Lotteries!

Playing lotteries online is slowly becoming a huge trend.

More and more people are shifting from paper to online lottery sellers because of the convenience and amazing selection of lotto games available.

If you’re wondering how online lottery play works, you’ve come to the right place!

Here’s everything you need to know about playing lotteries online.

 

 FIRST, SELECT A LOTTERY

There are a lot of ways to select an online lottery. Here are some quick tips on how to pick a lottery:

Jackpot Amount  – Some people pick their lottery based on the jackpot amount.

For instance, lotteries like US Powerball and US Mega Millions often reach up to half a BILLION on a regular basis!

Good Odds – Odds of winning is another great way to select a lottery.

The better the odds, the more chances you have of winning. For instance, the Irish Lotto 6/47  has some of the best odds around.

(Check out our Ultimate Irish Lotto Guide for more info!)

Personal Affinity – Sometimes people pick a lottery from a country they have strong ties to or a country they really want to visit!

For instance, the British Lotto is the obvious choice for anglophiles whereas people who are fond of Spain gravitate towards the Spanish Lotto La Primitiva!

How to play lotteries online
We have over 12 lotteries from around the world. Pick one!

1.PICK YOUR LINES

Once you know the lotto you want to play, select ‘Play Now’.

The second thing to do is to pick the numbers of lines you want to play.

A line refers to a ticket or entry into the game. For instance, 5 lines means you get 5 sets of numbers or 5 entries.

As online lotteries are a game of chance, the more lines you play, the more chances of winning you’ll have.

Click on the Number of Lines You Want.

 2.CHOOSE YOUR NUMBERS

Whatever lottery you choose, you will be asked to select numbers from a specific number pool.

(For instance, for the US Mega Millions, you must pick 5 numbers between 1-75 and 1 bonus number between 1-15.)

When it comes to picking numbers, there are two things you can do.

QuickPick All – By selecting the QuickPick option, you will have computer-generated numbers chosen for you automatically, at random.

Pick Your Own – if you prefer playing your own numbers, simply ‘Clear All Lines’ and select the box to pick your own number from the drop-down menu.

(Read our blog post on how to pick lucky numbers for more ideas!)

Use QuickPick All (left) or Pick Your Own Numbers (Right)

 3. SELECT YOUR DRAWS

Finally, all that’s left to do is to pick the number of draws.

This lets you decide how many times you want to play your numbers.

For instance, US Mega Millions has 2 draws or games in a week. So by selecting 4 draws, you will be entered to play for 2 weeks, for a total of 4 games.

Select the Number of Draws.

YOU’RE IN – GOOD LUCK!
