Double Draw Review

What do you imagine when you think of a Caribbean island? Beaches, palms, hot yellow sun, and white sand? These are a few characteristics of Barbados, but we’re talking about lotteries here.

The Barbados Lottery is the primary organizer of games in the country, and one of the primary entries in its portfolio is Double Draw. The company was established in 2005 to support youth, sport, and culture in the country. As time went by, the lottery in Barbados grew in popularity. Today, players have multiple options to choose among.  The portfolio of Barbados Lottery Company consists of the following entries – Super Lotto, Pick 3, Pick 4, Double Draw, Mega 6, Caribbean Keno, Scratch and Win, and Express Cash.

Double Draw is one of the most popular games, and there are several reasons why. Let’s take a look at its features and even more importantly – the eventual payouts players will claim in the event of getting lucky.

Double Draw Rules

To play Double Draw Barbados, you have to choose one to seven numbers in the range from one to 30. Each number is called a spot and marking a bigger number of spots increases your odds of winning a Double Draw prize.

Apart from choosing the number of spots, a player will also have to select the amount they’re willing to wager. Obviously, a higher wager will result in a higher payout in the event of winning. The risk of losing more also increases, however. This is why a wager should be picked reasonably.

Drawings take place every single day. There are four drawings held at 12:27 pm, 4:45 pm, 6:53 pm and 9 pm. Players have up to five minutes before the scheduled drawing hour to acquire their tickets. If a ticket is bought after, it will be counted towards the next Double Draw drawing.

Seven Double Draw numbers are chosen per drawing. To win a prize, you need to match at least one of those. Keep in mind that both the number of spots and the number of matches will be examined to determine the prize tier you belong to.

To participate in Barbados lotteries, you have to be aged at least 18 at the time of buying a ticket.  A ticket can be bought at the authorized Barbados Lottery retail venues. At the time being, online ticket buying options aren’t available.

There’s a pari-mutuel jackpot, and its size depends on the number of tickets bought for the respective drawing. Also, if there is no winner for the previous drawing, the jackpot sum will roll over towards the next one. At the time of writing (February 10, 2019), the announced Double Draw jackpot is 74,250 Barbadian dollars.

Prize claims can commence on the day following the drawing. Winners who have acquired up to 750 dollars can make the prize claim at any Barbados Lottery agency. A signed ticket and a valid ID will be required for the payout to take place.

For sums that exceed 750 dollars, a Barbados Lottery office will have to be visited to make a prize claim.

Players have 90 days from the date of the drawing to come forward and request a payout. All of the prizes are paid in local currency.

According to the Barbados Lottery, the amount paid out in Double Draw prizes for the first six months of 2017 exceeded 17.775 million dollars. One of the biggest jackpots to ever be handed out was 510,000 dollars. Over the years, several jackpots exceeding 100,000 dollars have been distributed among Double Draw players.

Keep in mind that Double Draw is a daily game characterized by exceptionally favorable odds of winning a prize. Such games are typically known for smaller jackpot amounts than some of the big national or international lotteries (in which case the odds will be stacked against you). Double Draw is worth a try because of the big number of prize tiers, the wager flexibility, and the pretty spectacular odds.

Double Draw results are readily available on the game’s official website. These will be uploaded shortly after the respective daily drawing takes place. You can also find the latest Double Draw lottery result Barbados in the agencies selling tickets, as well as via local media.
