Betgames Lucky 5 Tips


Here are some proven strategies to bet with more success in Lucky 5. 

  • Hedge your bets by wagering on high-risk options alongside bets that are more likely to win.
  • There are 300,000 possible combinations of the "Count of the dropped coloured balls will be less than 2.5". This is one of the best betting options in terms of winnability.
  • Landing five same coloured balls for a 1,000x payout is attractive - but is very unlikely. You only have a 0.0003% chance of success - try to hedge this wager with a more likely option.
  • Betting on coloured balls not appearing also has a solid chance of winning
  • For quick betting, input your preferred stake in the box - when it comes to placing your bet, you will just need to click "Place Bet"
  • Don't want to wait for the next betting round? Head over to ongoing games like War of Bets or Bet on Poker to break up time between game rounds.
  • You can see the last five draws in the game tab - but this information is generally useless as this is a randomised game

Betgames Lucky 5 Strategy


The best strategy to play Lucky 5 is to bet on the option with the highest odds of winning. You can then place a riskier bet on higher-paying positions. 

This strategy is effective as you have a high chance of winning while waiting for a big payout. But it will take some time to kick in. 
Betgames Lucky 5

Here's one way to play the strategy: place two bets of R1000 on "Under 2.5 coloured balls" and "Exactly x amount of coloured balls". Make sure you bet on the same colour balls for max efficiency.

This not only gives you a high chance to win the first bet - you also have an opportunity to capitalise on the secondary wager. 

However, there is a downside to the strategy - you're almost certain to lose funds before hitting that big winning streak.
