Following the UK Government’s announcement that the country has entered a state of lockdown as a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, opting to choose your EuroMillions numbers online rather than in-store is a safe option.

By entering online, you reduce physical contact with others and your entries will be stored safely in your online account.

FAQs for UK EuroMillions players

Can I still buy tickets in-store in the UK?

Yes, National Lottery tickets can still be purchased in some stores. Shops such as supermarkets, which sell essential goods, have remained open during the lockdown.

The UK Government has stated that during the lockdown people can leave their homes to shop for “basic necessities” such as food and medicine. When you do go out to shop for goods like these you will also be able to purchase lottery tickets.

Some shops have introduced measures to reduce contact, though, such as only accepting card/contactless payments, rather than handling cash.

Are online sales suspended now that the country has gone into lockdown?

No, online sales are not suspended. The UK National Lottery has stated that it expects draws to continue as normal. If the situation regarding retail stores changes, there is no reason why online sales would cease.

You can buy your tickets online, ensuring that your numbers will be entered into all draws for your selected period.

Are any EuroMillions draws being cancelled?

There has been no news to suggest that any EuroMillions draws will be cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. Draws take place in Paris every Tuesday and Friday and have continued during the restrictions in France so far. Should this change, this page will be updated accordingly.

Ticket sales for EuroMillions have continued everywhere apart from Spain, where they were suspended temporarily while the country was in lockdown. The situation in Spain has not impacted on the scheduling of draws.

What is the National Lottery doing to support people?

The National Lottery will give up to £300 million to support community projects battling the coronavirus outbreak. The money for good causes is generated from ticket sales for all National Lottery games, including EuroMillions. It is distributed across various sectors in normal times but the focus at the moment will be on providing aid to those that are most vulnerable.

Can I still play in advance as normal?

Yes. You can play up to four weeks in advance. The National Lottery had previously reduced how far in advance you could enter draws during the peak of the outbreak, due to uncertainty over whether they would be able to go on as scheduled for long. For this reason, advance play was limited to the next two draws. However, with the situation constantly assessed and restrictions easing, it was decided to restore the rules to normal.
