Changes afoot at Camelot


THE new boss of National Lottery parent firm Camelot has wasted no time in laying out a vision which could see a range of changes over the next year.

Ahead of his appointment as Camelot chief executive, Nigel Raiton spent the summer conducting a strategic review of the business on behalf of Camelot’s board with the goal of pushing The National Lottery back into growth.

Changes that could be on the cards include making National Lottery games available at self-checkout as well as in the discounters.

Camelot also plans to make changes to Lotto games in 2018, including the introduction of a Tuesday Thunderball draw.

Camelot chairman Jo Taylor said: “Under Nigel’s leadership, the new executive team at Camelot has recently concluded a thorough strategic review and designed a clear execution plan to put the business on a path to responsible and sustainable growth.”
