THE NATIONAL LOTTERY has issued another warning about a Euromillions phone scam.

Last month it said a number of people had contacted Lotto HQ to inquire about an offer they had received. A caller from a Dublin number had offered them free play in the Euromillions game.

“We have become aware through social media and other channels about such calls which appear to have escalated in the last few days as the EuroMillions Jackpot hits €50 million,” a spokesperson said today.

“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.”
