Playing UK Lotteries Abroad
It is not possible to access your National Lottery account if you are currently located outside of the UK. However, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on a chance to win when you go on holiday or move overseas. Thanks to lottery betting services like Jackpot.com, you can still take part in Lotto, EuroMillions and Thunderball online and any winnings will be automatically paid into your account. The only difference is that you are placing a wager on the outcome of the draw rather than buying a ticket, but all the same prizes are still up for grabs:
Visit our Jackpot.com page to find out more about one service which offers the chance to bet on lottery results, and how the process works.
If you are visiting another participating country (Ireland, France, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal or Switzerland) then you can still buy EuroMillions tickets in shops, just like you would in the UK. However, any winnings will need to be claimed whilst you are still in the country where the ticket was purchased.
Direct Debit and Playing in Advance
If you pay for your lottery tickets via Direct Debit then you will still be automatically entered into all draws for the duration of your holiday.
It is also possible to purchase tickets from authorised retailers for draws up to eight weeks in advance. So if you're feeling organised, this is another option to make sure you don't miss out on a prize whilst you are out of the country.
It is also possible to enter popular games from the rest of the world online. Visit the Other Lotteries page to find out how to get your chance to win a massive jackpot in US Powerball, Italy's SuperEnalotto and more great games!
