The tag shop=lottery is currently mainly used in Spain and Latin
America, so I suppose these are the regions where such shops exist.
They look like this:

Brazil: http://allexmoreira.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/grande-inauduracao-da-loterica-trevo-da.html
Spain: http://www.azarplus.com/fotos/noticias_fotocabecera_1713.jpg
Argentina: http://www.diarioepoca.com/notix2/multimedia/imagenes/fotos/2012-09-26/710194.jpg

As you can see, they are very different from German 'Lottoladen'.
