Aldi has joined forces with Camelot, the operators of the National Lottery, in an exciting new partnership. From tomorrow onwards, Lottery tickets will be available to buy at the Aldi checkout.
Aldi will be selling Lottery tickets in its 900 UK stores for the first time from tomorrow onwards.
The move comes thanks to the German retailer’s partnership with the National Lottery, which is based in Watford, Greater London.
Aldi shoppers will be able to buy tickets for the National Lottery’s full raft of draw-based games.
These include tickets for Thunderball, Lotto, and Lotto HotPicks.

“Making The National Lottery available in its stores has been a priority for us as we continue to make playing The National Lottery as convenient and easy as possible for people, wherever and however they shop.”
Ms Blogg continued: “We’re pleased that Aldi customers will now have a quick, easy and convenient way to purchase their favourite National Lottery games, while at the same time contributing to the £30 million that goes to National Lottery Good Causes each and every week.
