Bonus Lotto Review

Bonus Lotto is one of the draw games offered by Africa Lotto, a company registered in 2008 and owned 100% by a trust. The company was tasked with the overall responsibility of developing a nationwide lotto system which gives people the best possible opportunity to play and win in lotto games. According to the rules set by Africa Lotto, no one can participate in any of the games under it unless they have attained the legal of 18 years.

In the Bonus Lotto, you are to select 6 out of 42 numbers and based on how accurate you match these numbers to those in the draw, you stand a chance to win up to $50,000.

How to Play Bonus Lotto

Bonus Lotto is a 6/42 number game system where 6 numbers are chosen from a total of 1 to 42. To do this, you have to first visit any Africa Lotto retailer. Retailers are grouped according to state and city. The Bonus Lotto is available in all the 10 states in Zimbabwe including Bulawayo, Harare, Manicaland, Mashonaland Central, Mashonaland East, Mashonaland West. Masvingo Province, Matabeleland North, Matebeleland South, and Midlands Province.

If you are not sure of the retailer near you, you can visit the official Africa Lotto website and locate a retailer from there based on your state and city. Thanks to the spread of the retailers, chances are you will find a lottery agent right near you.

Once you get to the agent, ask for a Bonus Lotto playslip. The playslip has 4 panels or play areas, each having an array of 1 to 42 numbers. You can play one panel, two panels or all of them depending on your preferences. When marking the panel, be careful not to use a red pen or red ink because this can spoil your selection. At the same time, should you make an error, tick the void box instead of erasing the numbers or marks because this will spoil your selection.

There are two ways of picking your winning numbers; manual pick and Quick Pick. The manual pick is where you mark the numbers yourself based on how you project the winning numbers will be. On the other hand, the Quick Pick system allows you to simply enter the number of lines that you want to be picked and then the computer terminal at the retailer’s premises will generate random numbers for you.

Whichever system used, it doesn’t really matter because there is none which has been seen to improve your chances of winning. You can also play in advance draws by marking the appropriate number of draws to be played in a consecutive manner.

You can also play on your mobile through the Africa Lotto mobile app that is available for download on Play Store for free.

Bonus Lotto Ticket

Once you fill your playslip and reconfirm the numbers, you can now hand it over to the retail agent for generation of the ticket. The ticket usually has the name of the game in this case Bonus Lotto imprinted on it as well as the serial number of the ticket, the numbers selected, and the amount paid. Also confirm that the draw date has been indicated correctly before leaving the premises.

It is advisable that you sign your ticket at the back upon receiving it because lotto tickets are bearer instruments and depending on who picks them when lost, they can sign them and use them to claim a prize. The cost per play in Bonus Lotto is $0.20. This means, for the 4 lines, you will pay $0.80.

To pave way for the draw that takes place at 19:45 hrs. each Wednesday and Saturday, the sale of tickets closes at 1930 hrs. every Wednesday and Saturday. Any ticket bought past this time will be considered not for the current draw, but for the following draw.

When picking your numbers, there are two other options apart from the manual pick and the Quick Pick. These are direct 6 and perm 6. Permutations are generally meant to enhance your chances of winning the jackpot. Under perm 6, you have an opportunity to choose up to 15 winning numbers.
