Lotto Plus 2
Lotto Plus 2 was launched at the start of August 2017 as part of an exciting overhaul of Lotto, giving players an extra chance to win. The game uses the same numbers you entered for Lotto and works in the same way as Lotto Plus 1. It costs an additional R2.50 to play and you just have to mark the appropriate box on your playslip. Draws take place at 20:56 SAST.
How to Play
Lotto Plus 2 is played in the same way as Lotto and Lotto Plus 1. Six main numbers are drawn from a range of 1-52, followed by a Bonus Ball from the remaining 46 numbers. Prizes are available for matching as few as two main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, while the jackpot is won if anyone matches all six main numbers.
Players cannot choose separate numbers for either Lotto Plus 1 or Lotto Plus 2. The numbers you choose for the main game are automatically entered into the supplementary draws if you opt to play.
Lotto Plus 2 Prizes
There are eight Lotto Plus 2 prize tiers:

|Overall odds of winning a Lotto Plus 1 prize are 1 in 38|
All Lotto Plus 2 prizes must be claimed within 365 days of the date of the draw.
If nobody matches all six main numbers, the top prize rolls over to the next draw. There is no jackpot cap so it is possible for the top prize to grow extremely large.
