Daily Play Lottery to End in May

Daily Play Lottery to End in May
Updated: Thursday 24th April 2014

The Daily Play lottery game is coming to an end, with the last draw scheduled to take place on Friday 6 May. As Daily Play lottery fans will be aware, the Daily Play game is held every day of the year apart from Christmas Day, and boasts a top prize of £30,000. The game requires players to select 7 numbers from the range 1 to 27 and to match all 7 to win the jackpot. Three additional prize tiers give players prizes of £300, £30 or £5 as consolation payouts for matching 6, 5 or 4 numbers, respectively.

News that the Daily Play game will soon end makes a lot of sense when you consider that we now have the Lotto Plus 5 game in place. Lotto Plus 5 gives Lotto players the chance to win a top prize of £250,000 (or one of three consolation prizes) on the five days of the week when there isn’t a Lotto draw, and all for one single modest fee. This makes the Daily Play game rather redundant as far as most players are concerned, so bringing it to an end tidies things up quite nicely.

Of course, there are bound to be a few die-hard Daily Play fans who will be rather disappointed with the announcement that the game will end, but unfortunately it is all but impossible for progress to be made in any field without someone being disappointed. To those readers who have a particular soft spot for the Daily Play national lottery game, the fact that it will continue to run for another four weeks or so means that you still have time to enjoy it to the maximum.

Although the end of the Daily Play lottery game on Friday 6 May is just a few weeks away, tickets for a brand new Tuesday EuroMillions draw go on sale on Saturday 7 May, so lottery players have a considerable amount to look forward to. In the meantime, maybe this would be a good time for you to play the Daily Play game more often than previously, or to buy yourself a few extra tickets for each draw. The more Daily Play games you play and the more tickets that you buy, the more chance you will have of winning a £30,000 top prize before the Daily Play lottery ends for good. Good luck!
