For the first time, supermarket chain Aldi has partnered with National Lottery operator Camelot to bring The National Lottery to its 900 UK markets.
Starting next month, Aldi will make the National Lottery’s draw-based games available at all checkouts. Customers will be able to buy Lucky Dip tickets for games such as Lotto, EuroMillions, Set for Life, and Thunderball.
The lottery was successfully trialled in the north of England prior to this introduction.
Aldi communications director Richard Thornton said: “Customers will now be able to enter The National Lottery while doing their weekly Aldi shop,” said Aldi communications director Richard Thornton. “We hope to hand out some winning numbers to lucky customers across the country.”
Aldi customers will be eligible to play the National Lottery by the end of June 2021.
Convenient and easy play
Camelot’s retail manager, Jenny Blogg, said: “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.
“We’re pleased that Aldi customers will now have a quick, easy and convenient way to purchase their favourite National Lottery games. We certainly hope there will be plenty of lucky tickets bought in Aldi stores across the UK.”
