The 3 lucky Betgames

1 February 2021 |

Betgames has become a household name for South African bettors. These short but fun and highly entertaining games see more and more fans.

The 12 games strong Betgames range includes 3 lucky Betgames: Lucky 5, Lucky 6 and Lucky 7. While they are very similar there are also some differences and we have a closer look at all 3 in one article.

Recently all 3 Lucky games studios have seen a much needed overhaul. The games are now presented in more stylish studios. While the games and betting options themselves remain unchanged the optical refresh and enhanced features add to the fun of the games.

Key characteristics lucky Betgames

Lucky 5, 6 & 7 are very similar to traditional keno or lotto games but with fixed odds. Therefore, instead of only betting on numbers, you can enjoy a much bigger variety of betting options including Sums, Even/Odds, Colour and more.

All 3 lucky Betgames have some characteristics in common:

  • All 3 lucky Betgames are played using one drum/game machine, containing a certain amount of numbered, coloured balls.
  • In each game round a certain number of balls is randomly drawn.
  • There is one betting round per game and the betting takes places between the game rounds.
  • A new game starts every 5 minutes.
  • Each lucky game round is super fast and depending on the game only lasts a few seconds.
  • The games are broadcasted live from a Betgames’s studio 24/7/365.
  • A live presenter hosts the game.
  • You can follow the game via the live audio and video stream.
  • ‘How to play’ guides and results pages give you detailed information on game rules and also past draw results.

For more information please also have a look at our detailed Lucky 6 review.

Lucky 7

Lucky 7 is the oldest of the 3 lucky Betgames and already launched in 2012. Below we have listed the key facts about the game. For more details please also have a look at our Lucky 7 review.

  • 7 out of 42, therefore per game 7 out of the total of 42 balls are drawn.
  • 42 balls with numbers from 1 to 42.
  • The balls have 2 colours: yellow and black.
  • The colours are divided equally and therefore there are 21 balls per colour.
  • Total Sum of all balls: 903
  • Yellow balls sum: 451
  • Black balls sum: 452
  • Betting options: 78
  • 6 Betting categories: Numbers, Black/Yellow Balls Total, Total Sum, Total Count, Odd/Even, Black/ Yellow
  • Best payout: 2000x
  • Best bet: betting on a specific numbers give the best return but has also the least probability. Focusing on total sum of numbers or colour betting (such as dropped black or yellow balls will be more than 1.5) is seen as a good way to balance probability and payout.


As you can see from the above listings the 3 lucky Betgames have quite some common features. The main differences are the amount of balls used and drawn as well as the variety of betting features. There are also quite some variance in payouts with the best payout set at x90 in Lucky 6 compared to x2000 for Lucky 7.

Lucky 6 sits right in the middle between Lucky 5 and Lucky 7. The draw works differently as the drum contains 3 sectors and the same numbers appears more than once.
