Players can now top up their accounts with £5 as part of additional responsible gambling measures being implemented during Covid-19.
UK.- The National Lottery and EuroMillions have changed their rules due to the Coronavirus outbreak and are reminding players they can continue to purchase tickets to draws and claim prizes online and via the app.
Among the rule changes, players can now top up their online accounts by £5 rather than the previous minimum £10 minimum.
The change has been implemented to help people control how much they spend on lottery tickets during the Covid-19 lockdown.
“With the government’s measures relating to social distancing being critical, I’d like to remind you that tickets can be bought on the National Lottery website or by downloading the official National Lottery App from the App store or Google Play,” Camelot CEO, Nigel Railton, said.
“You can now deposit a reduced amount of £5 to fund your ticket purchases, and winnings up to £500 will be paid straight into your account,” he added.
