Collect Euro Millions Lotto or Irish Lotto winning from same shop?

    Hi.

    Does someone collect their Euro Millions Lotto or Irish Lotto winning from the same shop that they bought their ticket or any shop that sells them? I refer to winning under €2500 for example, not the actual jackpots.

    Also, do they payout in cash or a cheque?

    Cheers.

    Hi NS. Does the shop that sold the ticket pay in cash or cheque? Or must I go to a An Post Prize Centre to get a cheque? Is the Cork GPO on Oliver Plunkett Street a Lotto Prize Centre?

    Any lotto agent will pay out smaller wins in cash, say less than €100, after that it's probably at their discretion, I've collected approx €1700 in the past in cash at the GPO in Limerick

    I'd imagine only the National Lottery office can issue a National Lottery cheque, if you look at the back of your ticket all the information is there

    For the amount you have mentioned, I'd say the GPO in Cork will pay out in cash

    I'd prefer a cheque. Leaving with a lot of cash could be dangerous - who knows who is behind me in the queue. So the Cork GPO won't give a cheque?

    I hope your other posts are not as worthless as this. Post something useful or clear off.

    Hi Tomaldo.

    You should have been able to claim that amount at an An Post Prize Center.

    The GPO don't pay out via a cheque.
