If the code you’ve entered is successful, a ‘voucher has been added to this terminal’ message will appear with the amount displayed in the top right corner. Redeem your free bet by going ahead and placing a bet and touching the displayed yellow gift box icon to add your gift balance to the betting slip.
Choosing Your Bet
From the home page on the betting terminal, you will see a list of popular betting options along the top of the screen and on the left side dropdown menu. Select the ‘lotto’ option which will bring you to the next screen and prompt you to pick which draw type you would like to place a bet on, you could choose the ‘Irish lottery’ for example.
