Global Numbers

Aardvark's Global Numbers is a comprehensive lottery betting game. It is based on real-life lotteries happening all around the world. We have 197 different lotto's to offer ranging from the simplest ones to those where 8 balls can be picked or 90 balls are drawn. Full lotteries list can be accessed here.

Lotteries are real-life events that occur around the globe. Each lottery in Aardvark has a unique ID (Identification Number) which is represented both in betting screens and in cashier application.

Each unique lottery has its draws which occur at specific times predetermined by a lottery organizer. This is referred as Lottery frequency. Draws also have unique IDs, which are usually the date of the draw. Draw IDs are printed on tickets and represented in cashier application in betting slip section.

There are four formats under which all Global Numbers lotteries operate:

  • Regular lotteries where all balls are drawn from a single chamber with no bonus balls drawn.
  • One chamber draws with regular balls and bonus ball(-s) drawn from the same chamber. If 6 balls and a bonus ball were drawn from a single chamber of 49 balls, the lottery format would be marked as (6+1)/49.
  • Two chamber draws with regular balls drawn from the first chamber and bonus balls drawn from the second one. If 5 balls were drawn from one chamber containing 45 balls and a bonus ball was drawn from another chamber containing 20 balls, the lottery format would be marked as 5/45+1/20.
  • In Pick 3 and Pick 4s, every ball is drawn from its own chamber. If it's a Pick 4, 4 balls are drawn from their own chambers with each chamber containing 10 balls with numbers from 0 to 9. This lottery format would be marked as 4x(1/10).

There are two different betting screens dedicated to Global Numbers - Offers screen and Results screen. Both screens can be combined into one rotating screen for use in betting shops.

OFFERS SCREEN


RESULTS SCREEN

Firstly, a cashier is presented with an overview screen where all available lotteries can be seen. The cashier can then click on an individual lottery or use an integrated search bar to narrow down the list.


After selecting an individual lottery, the cashier is presented with the lottery's own dedicated screen where all available betting options can be seen. From there, the cashier can proceed placing a bet.

There are numerous bet types to choose from when placing a bet. The following bet types are currently offered for global numbers:

Bet code Betting Market Description
01-06 CLASSIC Which number(-s) will be drawn, excluding bonus numbers. At the moment, we offer 5 classic options to bet on: 1 Ball, 2 Balls, 3 Balls, 4 Balls and 5 Balls.
07-12 CLASSIC (INCL. BONUS) Which number(-s) will be drawn, including bonus numbers. This bet type is offered on lotteries which have a single chamber with a bonus drawn from the same chamber. We offer five bonus options to bet on: 1 Ball, 2 Balls, 3 Balls, 4 Balls and 5 Balls.
13-18 IN ORDER FROM 1ST Which number(-s) will be drawn in exact draw order. Applicable only to lotteries which are resulted in draw order. We offer 6 options to bet on: 1 Ball, 2 Balls, 3 Balls, 4 Balls, 5 Balls and 6 Balls.
19-30 CRAZY Which number(-s) will not be drawn, excluding bonus numbers. This betting market does not apply to Pick 3s and 4s. We offer twelve options to bet on: 1 Ball, 2 Balls, 3 Balls, 4 Balls, 5 Balls, 6 Balls, 7 Balls, 8 Balls, 9 Balls, 10 Balls, 11 Balls and 12 Balls.
31-32 ALL All drawn numbers will be odd or even, excluding bonus number. We offer two possible bet options: All Odd and All Even.
33-34 SUM Sum of drawn numbers will add to an odd or an even number, excluding bonus numbers. There are two possible bet options: Sum Odd and Sum Even. E.g. drawn numbers in the lottery Arizona the Pick 6/44 are: 01-12-13-15-23-44, the sum of these numbers is: 108. Total Even is a winner.
35-36 MORE There will be more odd or even numbers drawn, excluding bonus numbers. There are two possible bet options: More Odd and More Even.
37-38 FIRST (ODD / EVEN) First drawn ball will be odd or even. This betting market only applies to those lottery draws whose results are in a draw order. We offer two possible bet options: First Odd and First Even.
39-40 FIRST (HIGH / LOW) First drawn ball will be higher or lower than a given threshold. This betting market is also only available to lottery draws whose results are in a draw order. We offer two possible bet options: First High and First Low. Higher and Lower number is calculated by dividing a number of balls that the first ball will be drawn from. For example, UK 49’s Lunchtime (6+1)/49 draws 6 balls from a chamber of 49 balls. The system divides 49 into two categories - Low (1-25) and High (26-49). Note that the categories are not completely equal. In such case, we treat the bet option with a lower probability of winning with higher odds. In such case, if the first drawn ball in UK 49's Lunchtime lottery was 10, First Low option would be the winning option.
41-42 BONUS (ODD / EVEN) Bonus ball will be odd or even. This bet option is only available for lotteries which have a bonus ball. It can be either single or double chamber lotteries. If there are more than one bonus ball drawn, then two more rules apply: the drawn balls must be resulted in draw order and only the first drawn bonus ball will be applicable for the bet. We offer two possible bet options: Bonus Odd and Bonus Even.
43-44 BONUS (HIGH / LOW) Bonus ball will be higher or lower than a given threshold. This bet option is only available for lotteries which have a bonus ball. It can be either single or double chamber lotteries. If there are more than one bonus balls drawn, then two more rules apply (see earlier betting markets). We offer two possible bet options: Bonus High and Bonus Low. High and Low numbers are calculated by dividing a number of balls that the bonus ball will be drawn from in half.
45-46 POWER/BONUS The exact bonus or powerball number(-s). This bet is applicable for lotteries which have a bonus ball whether it’s from the same chamber or from second. We offer two betting options: 1 Ball and 2 Balls.
51-56 CLASSIC + POWER This is a mix of CLASSIC and POWER/BONUS where punters have to guess which regular number(-s) will be drawn and which bonus number will be drawn. This betting type only applies to lotteries where one bonus ball is drawn.

After accessing the game through the game menu in Aardvark, a cashier is able to make selections and print slips without a need to use the mouse. For this, he/she will need to learn few shortcuts in Global Numbers game.

By typing in an ID number and clicking enter, the cashier will quick-jump to that specified lottery screen. In the specified lottery screen, the cashier can then choose bet type and selections by typing the bet type IDs and typing in selections, e.g. 24-2-1-2 and so on.

There are also general shortcuts used throughout the Aardvark games, such as:

CTRL + Enter - Focuses on the stake, CTRL + X - clears the betting slip, ALT + B - turn on/off shortcuts.

There is a function in Global Numbers that allows cashier to replace the lottery of betting selections that are already in betting slip. If a cashier puts all betting options in the betting slip, but wants to chance the lottery and keep all previously selected bet types, REPLACE BETS button changes the lottery in betting slip to the lottery that is currently selected if the change is available.
