NATIONAL LOTTERY HAS this evening warned players not to fall for the actions of a suspected con artist who is pretending to offer them free plays in the Euromillions.

A number of people had contacted Lotto HQ in recent weeks to inquire about the offer they had received. Many people were called from a Dublin number and were being offered a free play in the Euromillions.

A spokeswoman said that this person has no affiliation to the National Lottery.

“We have been contacted by several people in the last few weeks about such calls. We would like to reassure our players, and members of the public, that this activity has nothing to do with the National Lottery, and we would advise caution.”
