Starting on Tuesday, people can register their cash register receipts for food, hair-cutting, repair and other services and for products bought on a market on a special lottery website, with more sectors likely to be added at a later stage.

The lottery will offer ten cash prizes of 200 euros each weekly and one monthly cash prize of 5,000 euros each month, with the annual prize fund set at around 173,000 euros.

Similar cash register receipt lotteries are run in Croatia, Georgia, Portugal, Poland and other countries.
