Camelot Sales Rise in First Half

UK Lottery group Camelot has posted their first-half financial results, noting that ticket sales reached £3.92 billion during the period.

Key financial indicators for the first half were:

  • Digital sales up 40% to £1.16 billion
  • Mobile sales up 73.5% to £749 million
  • Turnover up 15.3% to £2.26 billion
  • Instant win game sales up 11% to £1.66 billion
  • £876.8 million raised for charitable causes, up 10.5% from last year
  • £2.24 billion in prizes paid out, with 147 prizes of £1 million or more

Speaking about the results, Camelot CEO Nigel Railton shared: "It's 25 years to the day since we started selling tickets for that first Lotto draw, and our record half-year performance clearly shows that The National Lottery is in its best-ever shape. Not only are sales up across the board, but we've also delivered over £3.2 billion to Good Cause projects, players and retailers in just six months - underlining the incredible difference that, over two decades on, the National Lottery continues to make to the lives of people and communities throughout the UK."
