UK 49’s Exposed — Bookies, Betting and Winning

49s Exposed

UK 49’s Review

Okay, this one was weird. 49’s Ltd. is not so much an online betting site but a website to link into bookmakers in the UK for betting on various games. 49s.co.uk explains their games and publishes the results, and provides locations where players can play. It does look like they are planning to go live through the site but not right now.

Getting Started at 49’s.co.uk

Again, don’t expect (at this time) to be able to place your bets directly through the 49s.co.uk’s website. It does say on their home page, “Sorry! Our new website will be up and running as soon as possible!” so I guess they do plan on offering betting on their games direct. Not sure how long this process will take, but for now, each game directs players to a bookie in the UK for play.

49’s Ltd and their Games

49s.co.uk offers five games to bet on – 49’s, Irish Lotto, Virtual Horse Racing, Virtual Greyhound Racing, and Rapido. Our initial impression is their website is set up to encourage bookmakers versus clarification on the games mostly as the only explanation on how it works through their “Brand” menu.

More on their Games

49s is played twice a day (lunchtime guessing at noon-ish and tea time around 16:49 GMT), seven days a week, with players choosing three numbers. Players have numbers 1-49 to choose from. The draw itself pulls six balls plus the booster ball. Rapido is a little bit more confusing as various options depending on what you want to bet up to pick 10 numbers. The draw itself involves “lozenges” from 1 to 80 with twenty numbers drawn. It is played a morning daily.

Virtual Horse Racing and Greyhound Racing

Note the word virtual here. Each virtual horse or greyhound has odds identified, which go into the number of assigned balls to each racer. A “random number generator” calculates 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down to the last. Betters can experience the game at their local betting shop. It looks like there is one race a day, and they emphasize that no races are canceled due to bad weather.

Irish Lotto Betting at 49s.co.uk

Last but not least is betting on the official National Irish Lotto. This takes place twice a week (Wednesday & Saturday) with 3 draws each day. It looks like they pay out on nailing three numbers, though it could depend on different bookmakers.

49s.co.uk Customer Service

This online betting site is registered in Wales & England with a post office box in London. 49’s Ltd. also has an email address but no telephone number, online form, or live chat. Keep in mind; you can’t play through this site at this time. Players are directed to talk to their local bookmaker for more information, especially what they can win. It’s not a surprise then as players have to be from and in the UK to play – oh, and 18 years or older.

Would you mind rating 49s.co.uk?

The Bottom Line at 49’s Ltd.

Though winning is winning, this is a betting site with products that have been developed and operated by 49s.co.uk – this is not your standard lotteries, and don’t look for those mega jackpots.

49s.co.uk doesn’t get a thumbs up or thumbs down – it’s just plain weird. If you live in the UK and have nothing better to do around lunchtime, then heading to the local bookie to play 49’s might be a bit of a hoot. For the team and me, we’re going to stick to our lotteries.

  1. I think it’s a scam I never won anything for the past two years

  2. This 49’s totally scam. I got experience since 2002. First of all they aren’t putting all 1 to 49 number balls. Better don’t play this game

    • I think it a good game for as because we benefit a lot from this game thanks

  3. Of course, it isn’t rigged. It’s the same as the lotto, pure luck. Any number combinations can fall. You could do it every day for the rest of your life and never win a penny or win 3 times on one week, which I did two years ago on 3 numbers including the bonus ball all from 2 pound stakes. Three 800 pound wins. I’ve not won since. Its pure luck and it’s called gambling. If we could all win all the time, no one would go to work, unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. Stop moaning cause you haven’t been lucky. Only bet what you can afford to loose, then if you loose its not an issue, if you win happy days. It’s not a scam its just luck. Also for all you miserable lot out there, just to cheer you up I got 4 numbers on the lotto hotpicks last year as well, 13k haha. Good luck x

  4. Kinda think it’s a scam the once 6 numbers repeated lunch n teatime only difference was the bonus ball….so errrrrr not sure but I did win£7500 4 numbers £1:50p..

  5. Today, same three numbers in both draws… last week same 4 numbers… def an electronic scam… more often low or middle numbers bunched together. Not a fun game any more. Bring back 49s Bingo..15 yrs ago.
