How you claim Irish Lottery prizes depends on whether you bought your ticket at a retailer or online and how much you have won. Irish Lottery prizes expire 90 days after the date of the winning Irish Lotto, EuroMillions, Daily Million or TellyBingo draw or 90 days following the ending of a scratchcard game. Retail players must present their physical ticket to claim their prize and payments cannot be made if slips are lost, so make sure you keep it somewhere safe and memorable. It is also a good idea to sign the back of your ticket so it can be identified as yours.
