How do I play Dream Number online?
You can play your Dream Number alongside Lotto, or by itself. Simply click ‘Yes’ under ‘Play Dream Number’ on the play slip. You can either play the Dream Number shown or click ‘Lucky Dip’ for a new random number (if you change your mind and want to play the orginal number shown, just click ‘Clear’).
Use the ‘Choose draws’ and ‘Choose number of weeks’ lists at the bottom of the play slip to choose which draws you wish to play. You can buy up to 8 weeks’ worth of tickets at a time, starting from the next draw.
When your play slip is complete, click ‘Play Now’. You’ll be asked to sign in, or open a National Lottery Account if you don’t already have one already. Once you’ve confirmed your numbers, your ticket will be shown, and the details stored safely in your Account.
Although you can play Dream Number with Lotto using the standard play slip, please note that you cannot currently play Dream Number using the Buy Multiple Tickets play slips.
