If you’ve been lucky to win on a National Lottery scratchcard you’ve purchased in store, the next job is to cash it in. Especially before the scratchcard expires…
But, to claim your money, you must visit a physical shop – such as a supermarket, newsagent, Post Office – or anywhere that sells National Lottery products.
There is no way to cash in a physical ticket online, and only online Instant Win games are paid out automatically online.
Oh, and if for whatever reason you don’t want to visit a physical shop to cash in your scratchcard, you can always send it off to National Lottery who will send you back a cheque!
