Camelot’s record results

The Camelot Group, an iGaming operator that operates The National Lottery in the UK revealed that they experienced a 19,9% increase in their total sales to £3.264 billion over last year in their recently released financial results for the six months that ended on September.

Since launching The National Lottery back in 1994, Camelot has contributed over £27 billion to good causes across the United Kingdom while also giving out £40 billion as total prize money to the winners.

As a result of the positive financial status, Camelot raised their charity money from £784.8 million to £918.3 million, a rise of 133.5 million over last year’s figure. Camelot proclaimed that this funding has seen more than 370,000 individual awards made across the UK, which is equivalent to 120 lottery grants for every postcode district

The operator also broke another record when they paid out £1.689 billion as prize money to the winner during the six month period. So all in all, Camelot has made in excess of 2,700 lottery millionaires and multi-millionaires since 1994, including the record £161 million paid out to Colin and Chris Weir in August.

Camelot stated that  “The National Lottery is ranked just 60th in terms of per capita spend despite being the seventh largest lottery in the world in terms of sales, which is clear evidence of Camelot’s ongoing commitment to being a responsible operator.”

While Dianne Thompson, Camelot’s Chief Executive Officer stated that “we’ve made an extremely positive start to the 2011/12 financial year, raising a record amount for good causes and paying out record sums in prize money to our players, which is what The National Lottery is all about.”

“But this success isn’t an overnight phenomenon. It’s the result of our proven strategy for responsible growth that has seen our sales rise steadily and our player numbers increase over the long-term by encouraging many people to play but to spend relatively small amounts.

“Our continued achievements in the face of a challenging economic climate and a worldwide trend of lower lottery sales growth have reinforced our position as one of the world’s leading lottery operators. However, we never take success for granted and are determined to build on the tremendous performance of the last six months to make sure that we continue to raise as much money as possible for good causes and create even more winners.”
