Winning Streak Scratch Cards offer players the chance to win instant prizes of up to €50,000. Five players will be selected each week to appear on the Winning Streak TV Gameshow and one lucky player has the chance to win up to €1 million instantly on the Grand Prize Wheel.
The gameshow features favourite games from last season as well as a new game, High Low Share. Played as a collective game, each player in turn guesses whether the next number drawn is higher or lower. For each correct answer the group fund increases and at the end of the game, the fund is shared amongst the five players.
The Winning Streak Scratch Card also offers players the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to San Francisco. To be in with a chance to win this super prize, players must collect the letters U-S-A from the stub portion of the Winning Streak Scratch Card. Each week two lucky winners are drawn on Winning Streak from all U-S-A entries to travel with their guest for a 6 day trip to San Francisco with €2,500 spending money.
The Winning Streak TV Gameshow is based solely on chance and there is no skill involved. To enter, players must submit a 3-star ticket in one of the special 3-star envelopes, which are available from all National Lottery Retail Sales Agents. Each Thursday in National Lottery offices, one hundred 3-star entries are drawn randomly in a preliminary draw that takes place under strict security controls. From these 100 entries, the five players for the following show are drawn and their names are featured on the gameshow.
