How to Play

Freedom Day Lotto is only available online, so you won’t find any betslips for it at your local retailer or be able to play via your banking app. The game can be played on, just by following these simple steps.

If you’re a new user, it’s quick and simple to register, and there are lots of payment options to make a deposit. If you’ve already signed up, you just need to log in to complete your purchase.


The Freedom Day Lotto jackpot is always worth R255 million. It doesn’t require a long run of rollovers to generate that prize. It is made available because it is a one-off annual draw with a special prize to match. There’s another year to wait until the next draw if you don’t win.

The jackpot is split between winners if there are multiple players who match all the numbers. There are also three other prize divisions, starting from R85 for matching three main numbers. The prize amounts in these other divisions are all fixed amounts, so you know exactly how much you’ll receive if you win. The following table shows all the prize divisions.

Free Day Lotto Prizes
Prize Division Numbers Matched Prize
1 6 + Joker Ball R255 million
2 5 + Joker Ball R170,000
3 4 + Joker Ball R1,700
4 3 R85
