How to Play

To play this lottery, players must select 6 numbers between 1 and 48.  In addition, during the draw two different bonus balls are chosen from the same drum as the regular numbers.  The bonus number is only used to determine the second place prize.  Players can use a 10 line form, 5 line form or systematic form. The systematic form gives players a better chance of winning the lottery because it includes all possible number combinations.  Players can win the jackpot by correctly choosing all 6 numbers.  The secondary prizes can be won when players match between 3 and 5 of the numbers.  The only way the second place prize can be hit is if players correctly choose 5 of the numbers plus the bonus number.
