Tickets, scratchcards and wins: all at your local Post Office

We’ve all been there: you’re going about your day when suddenly you feel lucky. And you think “maybe I’ll buy a lottery ticket or play a scratchcard – anything could happen.”

Well, in case you’re not aware, you can buy National Lottery products in your local participating Post Office. Whether you fancy playing a draw-based game or prefer a burst of instant fun with one of the many scratchcards on offer, we can help you out.

What’s more, we can also dispense your winnings too. If you’ve won up to £50,000 then you can visit your local participating Post Office to collect your prize on the spot.

Since The National Lottery began in 1994, Post Office has been by its side selling tickets and helping raise money for good causes across the country. By playing, you’re helping fund and protect some of the UK’s most innovative, important and exciting efforts for a better tomorrow.

With as many as 5,000 branches participating, we’re never far away. Find out which one’s nearest you.
