Allwyn to introduce in-store scratchcard purchase limit


In line with Allwyn’s commitment to protecting players and operating in a socially responsible way, from 1 October, the operator will be introducing a 10-Scratchcard per transaction limit in stores – matching the existing limit for authorised online retailer partners.

Allwyn’s director of channel operations, Alex Green, commented: “Whether it’s a Lotto, EuroMillions, Set For Life ticket or a Scratchcard, National Lottery games are a great little gift that people can buy in store to give to adult family or friends.

“Not only could the ticket go on to win a fantastic prize, but by buying one, they’re also helping raise vital money for National Lottery-funded projects.

“So, when your customers are shopping for birthday, anniversary, congratulatory or thank you gifts, why not suggest they pop a Lucky Dip or Scratchcard in their card?

“In line with making sure The National Lottery remains a trusted and safe environment, we’ll also be setting a new standard for National Lottery player protection by introducing an in-store Scratchcard limit later this year.

“We’ll be speaking to retailers over the coming months about how this will work and, as always, are grateful for their help and support in preventing underage and excessive play in their stores.”
