In total there are over 5,300 stores across Ireland which sell National Lottery tickets to about 1.4 million Irish Lotto players every week.

To Play Instore

  • Choose your own numbers by marking a Lotto payslip in each panel with the games you want to play.
  • Choose a Quick Pick using randomly generated numbers selected for you. Ask your National Lottery agent directly if you would like to have a Quick Pick.
