The Nifty Fifty is not a lottery - it is a numbers game. This means you don’t buy a ticket, there is no jackpot as such and there is no contribution to good causes.
The Nifty Fifty is similar to the ever popular 49’s Numbers Game - with a couple of important differences from the 49’s game:
The Nifty Fifty is already causing a massive stir since its recent arrival. Many of our users already love betting on 1 - 5 balls on the Irish Lottery and 49’s Number Games for the great odds and flexibility they can get. On The Nifty Fifty you can win £800 for 3 correct balls from a £1 stake*. Plus, Betfred have an incredible introductory offer for Nifty Fifty betting. Now, let’s look at the simple steps on how to place an Nifty Fifty bet:
The Nifty Fifty Numbers game is a Betfred exclusive product and is only available with them. The great news is that the odds available are really attractive.
So the first simple step is to click a link from our site and go directly to the Betfred site. Alternatively you can click a link from our site to go and install the Betfred app. Betfred have a dedicated Betfred Lotto App and a complete main app called Betfred Sports. You can use either of those - we recommend the main Betfred Sports app because it has all the products available, including Lotto betting.Join Betfred Here
When you’ve arrived at the Betfred site on mobile or desktop or alternatively to one of the Betfred apps, you’ll need to:
Do you know what numbers you want to choose? Then select ‘Bet With New Numbers’ and select your numbers. Alternatively, if you select ‘Lucky Dip’ then Betfred will randomly select numbers for you.
You can choose to bet on between 1 - 5 numbers on the Nifty Fifty. The more numbers you bet on, the more you could win. For example, if you had a winning bet of £1 on 3 balls with Betfred at odds of 800/1 that would return £801 (£800 winnings plus your initial stake of £1 back). If you had a winning bet on 5 balls at 200,000/1, that would return £200,001 (£200,000 plus your initial stake).*
* Odds Disclaimer: The displayed odds are intended as a guide only and whilst we work hard to ensure they're up to date, they are subject to change from the operators. Odds correct as of 18/07/2020. Please always check odds on the betting operator site before placing any bets.
By including the bonus ball you increase the chances that your numbers will appear. For example, if you select 3 balls without the bonus ball you have 6 balls of which you need to match 3 correctly to win. If you include the bonus ball you have 7 balls of which you need to match 3 correctly. The catch? Including the bonus ball lowers the odds - for example, 3 balls with Betfred without the bonus ball is 800/1 vs 500/1 with it.*
‘Lines’ are essentially selections of numbers. If you want to have more than one bet on the same draw select ‘Add Another Line’. This will mean an additional stake from your original bet.
With Betfred, you can save numbers to your ‘favourites’. This is a fantastic innovative feature and makes it easier to come back and place a Nifty Fifty bet again in the future. (The only issue is if you clear your cookies on the browser, it seems to clear your favourites. Hopefully this is something Betfred will fix in the future)
Here you can select the draws you want to bet on.
Multiple bets or combination bets are an interesting option offered by many online bookmakers. They can seem a bit daunting at first but essentially Multiples are a combination of different bet types from the same selection of numbers. The total combinations, also known as the number of bets, is multiplied by your unit stake to provide your total stake.
Let’s look at a very simple example:
Enter your stake. You will now see potential returns - time to start dreaming about what you’ll spend your winnings on!
You’ll need to enter a stake for each line and bet type you’ve chosen. The stakes will be multiplied by the number of draws you have selected.
The minimum stakes vary between companies. With Betfred Lotto you need to have a minimum stake unit of £0.05 for any individual bet and the overall total bet slip amount must total a minimum of 50p
(Minimum stake is one of the 10 categories we rate the online bookmakers on)
Currently you can only watch the draw live and check the results directly with Betfred - online and in their shops.
However we hope to be able to bring you the live draw and results soon!
Good luck with your Nifty Fifty Bets and please gamble responsibly.
