Retail

From small corner shops, to large supermarkets; from local newsagents, to well-stocked convenience stores – our 44,000 retail partners are the backbone of The National Lottery and, to most players, our public face.

Around 94% of the UK adult population live or work within one mile of a National Lottery terminal and, as the biggest National Lottery sales channel, our retail partners play a hugely important role in helping to raise an average of £36 million every week for Good Causes.

National Lottery retailers earn 5% commission for each draw-based game sold and 6% on each Scratchcard sold – as well as 1% on certain prizes paid out in-store. On average, National Lottery retailers earned around £6,200 in commission per store last year and, since 1994, they’ve earned over £7.1 billion in total sales commission.
