BERMUDA LOTTERY

Legalised Gambling in Bermuda: Bermuda was a gentle, well-mannered resort, catering to genteel, upper-middle- class people. Gambling was attractive to a completely different type.

PROFILE

Bermuda Lottery players pick six numbers from 90 on a standard line, with prizes awarded for matching anything from two main numbers upwards. For a small additional fee, you can add the SuperStar option to the game, which boosts the value of regular prizes you might win and can even create new winning tiers when matched.

Bermuda Lottery draws are held at 8pm Everyday. When a Bermuda Lottery game would fall on a public holiday in Bermuda, it is rescheduled to the nearest possible day. In the draw, six main numbers and one Jolly number are selected at random by the Lottery machine. The Jolly number is very similar to the Bonus Ball that is drawn in UK Lotto, offering an enhanced prize when matched with five main balls. If no player wins the jackpot, then the top prize rolls over and increases in value for the next game.

The most effective way of increasing your chances of winning a lottery prize is to enter several lines, and Bermuda Lottery makes doing that incredibly easy. Instead of selecting six numbers from 90, you can choose to select seven, eight, nine or more numbers. Every combination of six balls within the numbers chosen is played using this method. For example, selecting seven numbers would produce seven lots of six, whilst selecting eight produces 28 possible combinations.

This is called an Integrated system and works well for syndicates who boast greater spending power than individuals. If you match just two numbers you know that you will win multiple prizes and matching more can make this method of play very profitable, whilst increasing your chances of hitting the jackpot.

A cheaper alternative is the ‘Reduced’ system, which allows Bermuda Lottery players to select more than six numbers, but it doesn’t guarantee that a jackpot prize will be won even if the numbers entered include all six of those drawn. Instead, various lower-level guarantees are given, and the level of guarantee depends on the type of Reduced system that is chosen.

CROSS AND WIN

Select 6 numbers between 1 and 90 for each entry that you wish to make. Every SuperEnalotto line you play costs €1 and you can win a prize by matching anything from two balls upwards, with the multimillion-Euro jackpot claimed by matching all six main numbers drawn. You could also win an instant prize, starting from €25 at the time you buy your ticket, as 8.4 percent of the prize pool for every draw is dedicated to these fun rewards.

SCRATCH AND WIN

The most effective way of increasing your chances of winning a lottery prize is to enter several lines, and SuperEnalotto makes doing that incredibly easy. Instead of selecting six numbers from 90, you can choose to select seven, eight, nine or more numbers. Every combination of six balls within the numbers chosen is played using this method. For example, selecting seven numbers would produce seven lots of six, whilst selecting eight produces 28 possible combinations.

LUCK ON YOUR FINGERTIP

For an extra €0.50 per line you can add SuperStar to your ticket, offering vastly increased payouts if matched alongside a winning combination in the main game and allowing players who match one or no main numbers to win a prize. The SuperStar number is drawn by a separate machine, so it is possible for the SuperStar to be the same as one of the main SuperEnalotto numbers.
