in which they can claim their prize. The prize
claims extension applies to winners who purchased
their tickets in-store, online at

Changes will also apply
to scratch card games that were due to expire in
April. Winners of prizes on the following scratch
card games, Crossword Doubler, Crossword Plus,

National Lottery asks all players to keep tickets
safe, to continue to heed the advice of Government
and practice social and physical distancing if they
