- Most prizes up to £50,000 can be paid by Post Offices by cheque and you may elect to receive the first £500 in cash.
- You may also receive prizes up to £50,000 by sending your winning ticket with a completed Prize form to the National Lottery at P.O. Box 287, Watford, Hertfordshire, WD18 9TT.

Checking your National Lotto winning numbers in the company of friends and loved ones is a great way to increase your chances of having a winning ticket as well as the fun and excitement of watching the live draw!
