Aldi to begin selling National Lottery tickets
Aldi is to begin selling National Lottery tickets in all 900 of its UK stores from next month.
The retailer is working with National Lottery operator Camelot to roll out the full raft of draw-based games at checkouts so customers can pick up their tickets when doing their food shop. Lucky Dip tickets for Lotto, EuroMillions, Lotto HotPicks, EuroMillions HotPicks, Set For Life and Thunderball games will all be available.
Aldi has already trialled the service in the north of England and now plans to have all its UK stores selling tickets by the end of June 2021.
Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi, said: “Customers will now be able to enter The National Lottery while doing their weekly Aldi shop. “We hope to hand out some winning numbers to lucky customers across the country.”
The National Lottery generates more than £30 million, on average, each week for good causes and projects throughout the UK.
Jenny Blogg, retail director at Camelot, added: “We’re absolutely delighted to now be working with Aldi. Making The National Lottery available in its stores has been a priority for us as we continue to make playing The National Lottery as convenient and easy as possible for people, wherever and however they shop.”
