      Thanks, but link clearly states that for playing via internet, player should be a resident of UK, but nothing about buying the physical thicket while the non-resident player is legally visitinng UK! I have not seen any sign anywhere in UK's selling agents that indicates "tourists visiting UK can't play". Wouldn't this consider a fraud by UK National Lottery to mislead the people to buy the thickets, but not pay the prize if they win?

        ok i emaile this to them

         

        hi i note on your site that https://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/help/faqs.ftl#int_GetStarted2 i cannont play or claim a prize if im not a resident of the UK via online play.
        but what if i visit the UK and purchase a ticket while there, and later discover its a winner? will the prize be voided as im not a resident?


        lets see what they say

        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

          Dear Sir/Madam

          Thank you for your email dated 29 January 2012 regarding playing the National Lottery.

          I can confirm that it is possible to purchase EuroMillions and National Lottery tickets from one of our 28,500 retailer plus outlets in the UK or Isle of Man so long as you are over the age of 16.  As the UK Lottery provider is governed and ruled by UK Law any prizes need to be claimed and paid out in the UK.

          I hope this information has been helpful. However, if you have any further queries please contact us again.

          Yours faithfully

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498
