Warning to our players about text messages offering prizes.

National Lottery Warns Scam Text Messages


The National Lottery has asked members of the public to be aware of text messages from individuals purporting to be working on behalf of the EuroMillions.

A National Lottery spokesperson said today: “We have become aware through social media and other channels about such messages which appear to have escalated in the last few days as the EuroMillions Jackpot hits €100 million. We would like to reassure our players, and members of the public, that this activity has nothing to do with the National Lottery, and we would advise caution.”

Players can play National Lottery games in-store at National Lottery agents nationwide, through the National Lottery App or online at Lottery.ie.  

Good Causes benefit from the sale of all National Lottery games

To date the National Lottery has raised over €5.5 billion for good causes. This level of funding has made a significant difference to communities, projects and individuals in the areas of Youth, Sports, Recreation, Amenities, Health, Welfare, Arts, Culture, National Heritage and the Irish Language.
