Sad news for Lucky Numbers punters across South Africa and around the World, UK49 draws have been suspended until further notice, revealed in a tweet from the operator. This includes the much loved teatime and evening draws.
The UK49’s are one of the most popular lotto games in South Africa and the operator announced on the 23rd of March 2020 that all draws are suspended. UK 49’s tweeted about the suspension as well as posting it on their website. This has since been confirmed by Hollywoodbets and World Sports Betting, who tweeted about the suspension.

We don’t have any further details on when the draws might resume but we assume this is due to the Coronavirus outbreak and was done for the safety of the staff and their family. Once more information become available we’ll update the information below. For now we recommend punters check out a few other Lucky Numbers draws, hopefully they won’t be postponed but no one is certain at the moment.
Morning folks, an unfortunate, but essential message from us to you below: pic.twitter.com/4ponk4mDCA

If you have pending bets on the UK49’s then don’t stress, bookmakers will void these and return the stake to you. If they have not already done so we recommend you contact the relevant customer support and request the ticket be voided.
