Aldi has announced a major change to its UK stores starting next month. The budget supermarket chain is working with National Lottery operator Camelot to bring the National Lottery to all of Aldi’s 900 UK stores for the first time.
From next month, Aldi will be rolling out the National Lottery’s full raft of draw-based games at its checkouts so customers can easily and conveniently pick up their tickets when doing their food shop. Lucky Dip tickets for Lotto, EuroMillions, Lotto HotPicks, EuroMillions HotPicks, Set for Life and Thunderball games will be available at its checkouts.
Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi, said: “Customers will now be able to enter The National Lottery while doing their weekly Aldi shop.
“We hope to hand out some winning numbers to lucky customers across the country.”
Jenny Blogg, Retail Director at Camelot, 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, wherever and however they shop.”
She added: “We’re pleased that Aldi customers will now have a quick, easy and convenient way to purchase their favourite National Lottery games, while at the same time contributing to the £30 million that goes to National Lottery Good Causes each and every week.
“We certainly hope there’ll be plenty of lucky tickets bought in Aldi stores across the UK.”
