The Daily Play lotto is one of the products that collective makes up the UK National lottery from Camelot. Daily play is as it’s name suggest a daily prize draw which takes place Monday to Saturday, with no draws on Sunday’s and Christmas day. As usual here on the lottery players advantage blog, you can find all the latest Daily Play lottery results and prize breakdowns.
Daily play lottery game was launched on the 22nd of September 2003, and was one of the first new games launched to try and reverse the declining sales. Shortly after in the United Kingdom a rival daily lottery game was launched however after a few short months, the rival closed down leaving “Daily Play” as the only everyday lottery game in the UK.
How to Play
To play the daily play lottery game, players chose 7 numbers between 1 and 27 or get a lucky dip (where the machine selects 7 random numbers) and pay £1 per line played. The draw gives players the chance to win anything from a free ticket if no numbers are matched upto £30,000 for matching all 7 main numbers.

The daily play lottery game is very attractive to lotto players as it has one of the lowest odds of winning a prize, coupled with a free ticket if people fail to match any numbers. At the same time the prizes are a lot lower, but then so are the odds of winning.
Camelot say on average 52% of daily play ticket sales go into prizes for the players to win. Daily play is one of the few fixed prize lotto game, and as such there are no rollovers if the top prize is not won. In some very exceptional circumstances, and very much dependent on the number of winners overall and in any one prize category, sometimes prizes may be less than stated. 28p from every ticket sale also goes to good causes across the United Kingdom.
