Aldi has announced that it has partnered with Camelot to offer the National Lottery across its entire 900-store UK portfolio.
Commencing in April 2021, the supermarket group will provide all of the National Lottery’s draw-based games at its checkouts.
The move follows a trial in the north of England, and will encompass every UK Aldi site by the end of June 2021.
Richard Thornton, communications director at Aldi, said: “Customers will now be able to enter the National Lottery while doing their weekly Aldi shop.
“We hope to hand out some winning numbers to lucky customers across the country.”
Generating a weekly £30m, the funding is used to support a range of initiatives, from supplying food banks to financially aiding future Olympians and Paralympians.
Jenny Blogg, retail director at Camelot, said: “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.
“We’re pleased that Aldi customers will now have a quick, easy and convenient way to purchase their favourite National Lottery games.”
