The 49s draw takes place twice daily and is broadcast in UK betting shops. It follows the same format as the original UK National lottery draw - i.e. 6 numbers from 49.

Unlike the lottery, it is possible to bet on individual numbers or pairs of numbers. 49s is popular as it operates in betting shops so the payouts closely reflect the true probabilities. You also have the flexibility of betting on the six or seven number draw (i.e. including the bonus ball).
