As Ireland responds to the rapidly evolving challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, we at the National Lottery want to wish you good health and wellbeing and encourage you to stay safe.
Our primary focus is the health, safety and wellbeing of our players, staff and the wider community during these trying times. We have been closely monitoring this dynamic situation and working with our partners to understand the impact, both immediate and in the near term, on our players, staff and community mindful of the recommendations issued by the Health Service Executive and other relevant authorities.
As a result, and regrettably, we have taken the decision to cancel the remaining seven Winning Streak TV gameshows as, under current circumstances, we believe it is unsafe to have players and audience travel and congregate to play out the games.
Those five players due to appear this Saturday March 21st have already been contacted and they will get the opportunity to play and win prizes on the Winning Streak games when circumstances return to normal. In addition, for those players in possession of Winning Streak scratch cards with 3 star prizes and stub entry on them, continue to send those into the National Lottery and at a date in the future we will select 5 entries from all received to take part in a catch all draw and draw a final Cruise draw winner. We have advised our retail partners to remove Winning Streak tickets from sale from March 28th. Players will have until August 10th 2020 to claim a prize on the game.
We want to thank all of our players, staff and partners for their continued support of the National Lottery’s role in generating funds for Good Causes. We especially want to thank you for your understanding at this difficult time, and we do hope to return with Winning Streak scratch card and TV gameshow in Autumn 2020. We will of course keep you updated on further developments as they happen.
The iconic Winning Streak scratch card returns for the 30th year with an updated look, but more importantly it includes over €6m in prizes to be won instantly. It is hitting stores in mid-August, so get yours today and get scratching. As always, you can win instant cash prizes, but also get access to the ever-popular Winning Streak TV show. Every scratch card also has a removable stub that gives you access to the Draw where you have a chance to win a fabulous €5,000 luxury cruise.
The scratch card will remain available for sale up until March 28th 2020. All prizes must be claimed before this scratch card expires on 10/08/2020.
The wait is over, the Winning Streak TV show is returning to your screens on the 28th September. If you want to celebrate Winning Streak’s birthday with Marty & Sinead all you need to do is scratch your card and reveal 3 stars. You must sign the card and pop it into one of the green 3-star envelopes, available from your local National Lottery Retail Agent, and get it in to us at the National Lottery.
Your card will be entered into a draw and five players will be drawn to appear on the TV show. Tune in to the show on Saturdays to see if you are a lucky winner. If you manage to miss the show, check back here where we’ll post the names of the fantastic five for each show.
The legendary grand prize wheel remains with up to €500,000 to be won, make sure not to miss out on your chance to join Marty and Sinead, spin the wheel and get onto your very own winning streak!

For your chance to appear on the first show, please get your 3-star entries into us by 10 am on Thursday 19th September 2019. The 5 lucky players will be contacted directly to appear with Marty & Sinead on the first show of the new season on September 28th.
