Bulls Lotto – Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bulls Lotto?

Bulls Lotto gives you the chance to bet on a non-UK lottery and win life-changing prizes twice a week whilst also supporting the Bulls.

Unlike traditional lotteries, where the prize pool is distributed from the sale of tickets, when you purchase a ‘ticket’ at Bulls Lotto you are placing a bet on the outcome of the German national lottery. This means you can expect on average jackpots of £7.5m with rollovers of up to £40m.

To place a bet all you need to do is simply select six numbers from 1 to 49 and one ‘Star’ number from 0 to 9 and keep your fingers crossed!

Draws take place every Wednesday around 6pm and every Saturday between 7pm and 10pm. Six numbers (the main numbers) are drawn, plus with the ‘Star’ number. Lotto bets cost £1.50.

Average prize categories are shown in the table below.

Prize CategoryMatchAverage Estimated Win
16 MAIN NUMBERS + STAR£7,556,954
26 MAIN NUMBERS£485,157

** Except through a Lotto Syndicate, and subject to any other conditions on the applicable betting screen. Remember, the Star number is only relevant when you match six main numbers and the Star number, or fewer than 3 main numbers and the Star number.

How does a subscription work?

You can make sure you never miss another draw by ticking the option marked ‘Subscribe to Bulls Lotto’ on the game panel. When you make a subscription lotto bet the same lotto numbers will be bet on every draw automatically until further notice. You can view or cancel your subscription lotto bets at any time in the Lotto Bet History area. Subscription bet cancellations are processed at the end of the current period e.g. if you selected a period of 4 weeks, your subscription will stop at the end of that 4-week period.

What are free lotto bets?

Free lotto bets enable you to bet without using your own cash balance. You can win free lotto bets by matching just the Star number (0.5 bets awarded) or by receiving free promotional vouchers from time to time.

When can I bet at Bulls Lotto?

Lotto draws are held on Wednesday evening (around 6pm) and Saturday evening (between 7pm and 10pm). The deadline for betting on the next draw is indicated by the countdown timer on the betting panel. Please note, if you start to place a lotto bet before the deadline but do not submit it successfully before the deadline has passed, your lotto bet will not be accepted for that draw.

Where can I find results?

Results are published as soon as they become available on the Results page, where you can also search for the results and winnings breakdown of previous draws.

How long until the results are known?

  • Saturday’s draw results and winnings breakdown are published on Monday.

Winnings will not be paid until the results have been published on Bulls Lotto website.
