The e-ticket scanner will be available at all major shopping centres and restaurants in Ireland beginning Monday.
The system will scan the number of tickets on your ticket to determine if you need an ambulance.
It is an industry first, with a new system launched in February that uses technology to analyse the information provided by the ticket.
It will also be able to detect when someone has been drinking, so it can be used to stop people from buying a beer or even taking it to the bar.
In the first three weeks of the new system, the cost of a ticket will be £4.99, compared with £4,99 for the current system.
All new e-tickets will be valid for six months and can be scanned at any participating supermarket or kiosk.
This will allow the public to continue to buy tickets, with the system being able to work with the likes of Marks and Spencer and Tesco.
It also means that if you buy a lottery or lottery ticket at a participating shop, it can only be scanned once.
“It will save a lot of time and the hassle of having to re-enter your information, but it also means there’s less incentive to go and drink at a bar,” said Dr Stephen Donnelly, the director of health, health services at the Irish Health Foundation.
He said the new technology could be an effective way of reducing the number who die from alcohol-related causes.
E-ticket scanners have been available at some supermarkets in recent years, but the number has been limited.
Dr Donnelly said the introduction of the scanner was not the only way of getting the numbers of people who drink and gamble off the books.
“It’s a very big leap forward in the age of electronic identification,” he said.
“There are still many people who will not have an e-scan and there will be people who won’t be able, so the challenge is in how to make it a viable option for people.”
There will also now be a mobile phone app available to people to purchase e-Tickets.
