The Nifty Fifty is the hottest new numbers game on the circuit right now. Exclusive to Betfred, the first Nifty Fifty numbers were drawn in May 2020. It has enjoyed a very successful start, and regular lotto bettors continue to flock back to the exciting new product. In turn, Nifty Fifty has already paid out some significant sums. For example, one customer won a whopping £10,000 within just weeks of its launch. There are draws every day, and you can watch them live online, on your mobile device, or in-shop.

Although it’s not one of the most well-known numbers betting games in the UK, the 49’s has a loyal following – and for good reason!

After all, there’s not many lottery numbers games out there that are drawn twice every single day, not to mention the great odds available and the opportunity to customise your 49’s bet by being able to choose how many numbers you’d like to bet on and even where you want to bet.

Is the 49's Fixed? No, Let Us Explain...

Ah, don’t we all love a good conspiracy?

However, while it may sometimes feel that we’ll never win a lotto jackpot, it’s not true that the 49’s is fixed so that you can’t win.

How can we be so sure? Well, like all gambling products in the UK, the 49’s is heavily regulated by numerous bodies that ensure players are subject to a fair and transparent betting experience.

Indeed, the UK Gambling Commission is responsible for licensing products (such as the 49's) as well as bookmakers (such as bet365) to check that both aspects are behaving responsibly to players.
