Got this in the email - actually quite a good thing - the subscription service saves hassle of going to shops to get tickets or forgetting to get them or have to check the numbers:
Did you know you can play The National Lottery by subscription? I find it so easy and convenient that I thought you might want to subscribe yourself.
The National Lottery enters your numbers for your chosen draw(s), they tell you if you've won and even send you your winnings**. Best of all it's a free service - you just pay the same that you would in the shops
Subscribe online and we'll both be treated to a 5 John Lewis voucher* to be used online or in-store.
So visit http://www.national-lottery.co.uk/subscriptions
to subscribe today.
Once you're set up, look out for a welcome email from The National Lottery which will tell you how we can both get our voucher*. At that point you'll need to know my reference number, which is 1120600250.
What are you waiting for?
