How to Play Africa Millions
For first timers betting on Africa Millions, this is very simple. All that is required is for players to choose a total of 6 numbers out 90 possible numbers and a single bonus number out of a possible 90 as well.
When is the draw for Africa Millions?
The Africa Millions draw holds in Zambia and the draw is done twice a week – Wednesday and Sunday.
How to Win
Players can win after the correct numbers have been picked. These numbers which are picked have to be the winning numbers which have been accurately predicted by the players and when this is done, guaranteed wins are paid out. This is done when a player matches the six numbers which have been drawn.
If a person chooses 6,8,4,32,12 and 41 and these are the winning numbers when the draw has taken place in any of the days, then the guaranteed pay out for that day will be given to the player who has been able to match these numbers.
Where can one play?
To play the Africa Millions, players can do this by logging onto the websites where it is available. Playing has also been simplified for first time players who are not familiar with how it works. On the website, there are various tools which make the playing experience easy and enjoyable. They are:
The Win-o-Meter has been created to help players when playing the Africa Millions. This tool enables players to calculate their chances of winning any of the prizes. Also, with this tool, players can choose multiple combination of the numbers available to improve chances of winning a prize.
The meter allows you to see the calculated chance you have of winning one of the tiered prizes. Additional bets and numbers as well as weeks and weekday draw selections will all increase your chance of winning a prize.
As the name implies, the QuickPick All tool has been created to help players to randomly generate figures for an entire row when placing their bets. What can be done is that players can also easily generate new numbers when the QuickPick All button on the website is clicked multiple times. It is important for player’s to realise that what this tool can’t do is adding bonus balls to players bets.
The Max All option helps players in their selection process. With this tool, players can select an entire row of their bets and can boost it. Also, it has all the available draw dates and there are bonus balls for each bets players place. Furthermore, players can choose their numbers all over again by clicking the Max All button multiple times on the website. Also, the Max All option generates a full set of tickets, including SuperStars and maximum Boost!
Playing lotto, especially the Africa Millions is all about winning the Jackpot after players have placed their bets to successfully await the outcome. The Jackpot Amount can be seen by players when the panel is looked at. What this panel does is show players the Jackpot amount that could potentially be won. The Boost and Superstar options allow you to increase your personal jackpot size.
What types of Odds are available?
There are several kinds of odds available when placing bets. However, for the Africa Millions, the kind of odd is the Fixed Odds.
Fixed Odds is the most common form of betting and this type of betting means that players will place bets on the number of correctly selected numbers and then the winnings will be collected on those odds.
Sample Odds of the Africa Millions
|Lotto results||Prize per winning bet||Odds in 1|
|Match 6 + Star||R 779,000,000.00||56,035,316,700|
|Match 5 + Bonus + Star||50,000,000.00||9,339,219,450|
|Match 5 + Star||4,000,000.00||111,181,184|
|Match 4 and 2 Bonus Balls||3,750,000.00||103,769,105|
|Match 4 + Star||50,000.00||1,071,626|
|Match 3 + Star||4,000.00||29,404|
As can be seen from the chart above, players who win big in the Africa Millions have always matched the highest number of balls accurately. For the other category of players who have won significantly less, it can be seen that the number of balls which are matched fall short of the required amount to guarantee humungous payouts which Africa Millions guarantees.
Africa Millions – How did it all start?
Africa Millions was birthed after based on the decision to replicate the success of EuroMillions Lottery in Africa. This resulted in France’s BR Gambling to sign a partnership with the African Association of State Lotteries (AALE) in 2009.
Aftte this agreement was signed, it decided to roll out its operations across six countries – Cape Verde, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Benin, Burkina Faso and Mali, which have a joint population of over 50million people.
