Lucky7 Racing Game Closes At William Hill

Article Updated On 4th September 2019

Free to play prediction games such as Soccer Saturday Super Six have increased in popularity amongst bookmakers. Grosvenor Goals, Correct4 from Coral and 4 To Score from Betway all compete to attract players to eventually bet on the weekend football games. However, the free to play arena has been dealt with a double blow in the past week.

At the end of August William Hill announced the end of their Lucky 7 prediction game. This was a joint venture with The Racing Post and regularly offered participants the opportunity to win up to £50,000. There's no explanation for the end of the game. Visitors to the Lucky 7 website are simply greeted with a message saying "The game is now closed. We're sorry, but there will be no further games of Racing Post Lucky 7".

Premier League Predictor

We can speculate that either the contract with The Racing Post expired and both parties decided that Lucky 7 wasn't working for them. Alternatively, recent changes in UKGC regulations - whereby players need to verify their credentials at registration - may have made the game harder to manage. Either way it's sad to see it go. Hopefully William Hill will look to launch a new game in the future.

The second blow comes from ComeOn Sports. They have announced that they are pulling out of The UK market towards the end of September. This decision means the end of their Premier Prediction game. This game featured Ray Parlour in the 2018/19 season. To win up to a £50 free bet players needed to predict the results of four suggested bets. This game won't be missed as much as Lucky 7 as it did require a wager in order to qualify the entry.

Alternatives To Lucky7

If you're a fan of Lucky 7 then there are still a couple of free racing prediction games available. Pick7 from ITV and Skybet is still running. There are regular smaller prizes of up to £1000 on offer, but occasionally a competition runs which offers prizes up to £50,000. Elsewhere you can win up to £10,000 by playing 4 To Win at Betway. Just predict four winners in this free to enter game.

Football fans have a little more choice. The newest addition to the game roster is Coral's Connect 4. This is like a mini version of their Smart Series competitions. Get the predictions correct to win £50 cash. There are smaller betting prizes if you get 2 or 3 answers correct. Other options include 4 To Score from Betway, Grosvenor Goals and Unibet's Premier League Predictor. All are free to play.
