How to Bet On the French Lotto

The French Lotto is a simple, straightforward lottery game that's quick and easy to pick up and fun to bet on. First pick five numbers from a range of one to 49, then pick a Bonus ball number from a range of one to ten.

Get all six regular numbers to win the jackpot. Otherwise you also have a chance of winning one of five additional prize divisions. In fact you need only get two of the six numbers right to still win a prize.

How to Win the French Lotto

As it stands the French Lotto is a fairly lucrative lottery game, however there are ways of increasing your chances of winning a prize.

  1. Never miss a draw: As the French Lotto is drawn on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays you get three days a week to become a multimillionaire. Betting on multiple draws increases your chances of winning, but remembering to bet on the lottery each week can be a bit of a hassle, however, so the solution is to first check each of the draw days, then check the Subscription box, then finally set your Billing period from the dropdown menu before clicking on Submit.
  2. Multiply your chances of winning: You know you don't have to just pick five numbers and one bonus number, you can pick more if you want. Each additional number will cost extra, but, by entering multiple numbers in a single draw, you increase your odds of winning. This type of bet is known as a System Bet – to activate one just keep picking more numbers!


Bonne Surprise!

How would waking up millions of dollars richer feel? Difficult to imagine really. You can pretend, of course, playing it through in your mind, personally I always have a little daydream at work but really, there's just no way to prepare yourself is there? All you can do is just pick your numbers, at least that way you've done your part in making it happen.
