Bingo and Lotteries

Here we list bingo sites which offer lottery betting alongside the bingo.  Players can bet on the outcome of lottery draws from all over the world which they would not be allowed to enter directly, including the US Powerball and Irish 49s, and place speciality side bets.

Bingo Sites With Lottery Betting


Included here are bingo sites which also offer lottery betting, allowing players to bet on the outcome of lottery draws worldwide that they would not be eligible to enter directly.

Like bingo, like lotteries

Bingo and lotteries are both games of numbers so it’s not surprising that some people like to play both.

In both bingo and the lottery, you choose numbers and pay then wait for the balls to be drawn to see if your numbers come up.  The key difference is that in bingo there is always a winner as balls continue to be drawn until someone calls bingo whereas in the lottery a set number of balls are drawn and there is only a winner if someone has a direct match.

The more players there are in a game of bingo, the more like the lottery it will feel.  As the number of cards in play goes up, the chance each card has of winning goes down, but the prize value goes up.  A networked game with tens of thousands of players will feel very like the lottery as you have a very small chance of winning a very substantial amount.   Such games are quite a selling point on many bingo sites, so clearly a great many bingo players enjoy that lottery feeling at least some of the time.

Some bingo sites are now tapping into this by offering lottery bets as a sideline.  This is NOT the same as buying a lottery ticket.

Lottery betting vs direct play

When you bet, no ticket is actually bought for the lottery in question.  Instead you are placing a bet on which numbers will win, and in the event that you win it is the site that pays out.  Some sites pay out whatever the lottery itself pays out for the same numbers (and carry insurance against a big win).  Others allow you to place a range of fixed odds bets – for example, if you bet on one number you might get 6/1 on it appearing in the draw – and in that case, what you win will be based on what you bet and the quoted odds and have no direct relation to the lottery prizes.  Side bets are also often available, for example on the colour of the first ball drawn.

Why not just play direct?

Sites with lottery betting give you information about and access to lotteries worldwide with one wallet you can use to pay for them all (and often for bingo, slots or sportsbook betting as well).  There may also be bonus offers and special features, such as the ability to block anyone else from choosing the same numbers (on a site which pays out the same as the lottery does) or the ability to place combination bets (on a fixed odds site).

Lottery betting also gives players access to lotteries that they would not normally be allowed to enter due to not being a citizen of and/or not being physically located in the state or country in question.

The big minus point

If you buy a ticket for the UK Lotto and don’t win, much of the profit (around 25% of the ticket price in 2013-14) goes to support good causes.  Assuming that you could place a bet on it instead of actually buying a ticket, if you didn’t win the profit would go to the bookie instead of the good causes.  Up until a couple of years ago, several of the big UK bookies used to offer bets of this kind, but this is no longer the case and guidance from the Gambling Commission confirms that gambling sites with a UK licence are actually prohibited from offering any bets on anything connected with UK Lotto. As of April 2018, that also includes the EuroMillions.  Instead, bets are offered on a selection of worldwide lotteries that players would otherwise be unable to enter – such as the 49s, a daily draw which is part of the Irish Lottery.  To buy a ticket for the 49s you must be a resident of the Republic of Ireland, so the ONLY way a UK player can participate is via a lottery bet – and therefore no money is being diverted away from good causes.
