7 Bet

Introduction

7bet is a lottery game involving a draw of seven balls out of 42. As opposed to the player picking five of his own numbers, there are hundreds of different bets to choose from. The game is offered by TvBet, a provider of live dealer games for Internet casinos.

Rules

  1. Every three minutes a live dealer will drawn seven balls, without replacement, out of a hopper with 42 balls, numbered 1 to 42.
  2. The balls come in four colors — blue and black. There are 21 balls for each color. The even balls are blue and the odd balls are black.
  3. There are many different bets to choose from. Rather than list them all here, you may see each in the analysis sections below. The way I title them is not necessarily the same as by TvBet.
  4. All wins are on a "for one" basis.

Selected Balls Drawn

This is the only type of bet that involving picking actual numbers. After the player chooses a type of bet, the game will ask him to choose the necessary balls.
