Changes to National Lottery and Euromillions Rules
By Simon Wright Apr 2, 2020
Camelot who are responsible for organising and running the National Lottery and Euromillions Lottery in the UK have devised new rules, as a result of the continuing Covid-19 / Coronavirus pandemic.
As part of the rule changes being adhered to, players can now only top up their accounts online by £5, compared to the previous £10 maximum limit.
This new limit has been put in place to help control how much people spend on lottery tickets when purchasing online, with Camelot Chief Executive Officer, Nigel Railton, explaining: “With the government’s measures relating to social distancing being critical, I’d like to remind you that tickets can be bought on the National Lottery website or by downloading the official National Lottery App from the App store or Google Play.”
“You can now deposit a reduced amount of £5 to fund your ticket purchases, and winnings up to £500 will be paid straight into your account. We are monitoring the situation daily as it unfolds, and while we do so, we have limited the number of weeks you can play the game in advance.”
“We will be sure to keep you informed of any changes to EuroMillions if and when the situation develops. I am pleased to say that EuroMillions continues to operate as normal for now.”
