Camelot to Sue to Keep Lottery License

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Lottery supplier Camelot recently lost out on its UK lottery license to Allwyn, so the company is doing the natural thing and suing the UK Gambling Commission in an attempt to retain its ability to provide the service.

The company announced that they're planning to take legal action, and will press the matter to the UK High Court to state its case as to why it should email the exclusive lottery supplier for the country. Camelot claims that the UKGC broke the law by changing rules, changing the scoring system used that Camelot got first place in. This is related to a 15% risk factor weight that was used in the first wave of the bins. Camelot also claims that Allwyn's claims of charitable giving wasn't properly scrutinized.

It all sounds like a bit from a classic South Park episode if you ask me:

Currently, Allwyn is slated to take over the lottery in the UK in 2024, but this legal case could potentially push that date back. Casino Listings News is following this story and will update readers as the case progresses.
