# Lotto Help

Today i purchased my first lottery ticket. I brought 3 lines on the 'lotto'

Line A, B, C

Each line has 6 numbers (I used lucky dip to choose them)
And i didn't enter for dream number'

But isn't there meant to be a bonus ball number aswell?
Or is that the last number of the line and the other 5 are 'main balls'

you need 6 numbers matched to win jackpot
5 numbers and bonus is second prize

6 balls are drawn first then bonus ball is 7th ball

Good luck

you choose the 6 numbers, but 7 numbers are drawn, 6 main plus a bonus ball.

you win if some/all your 6 numbers match those drawn, the bonus ball only comes into play if you match 5 of the 6numbers from the main draw. the bonus ball gives you a bigger prize if you match that too with your remaining number.

hope that helps

You choose 6 numbers, say 1 2 3 4 5 6 for example.

On the night they draw 6 numbers + 1 'bonus ball', Jackpot is match the 1st 6 numbers, next highest is 5 numbers + bonus ball(bb), then 5 numbers, 4 numbers etc.

eg/

1 2 3 4 5 6 + 7(bb) is drawn you get jackpot, grats!
1 2 3 4 5 7 + 6(bb) you get the next highest, of 5+bonus, grats too!
1 2 3 4 5 7 + 8(bb) you matched 5
1 2 3 4 7 8 + 9(bb) you got 4
etc etc
