Stores pass lottery test

Camelot sign

NATIONAL Lottery operator Camelot has been congratulating retailers after revealing 91% of stores visited in 2017 correctly checked for ID as proof of age on first visit from a mystery shopper.

Camelot conducted 11,600 mystery shopping visits last year.

Duncan Malyon, retail director at Camelot said: “I’m absolutely delighted that our National Lottery retailer partners improved on their mystery shopping scores for a second year running, up against some fantastic results from 2016.

“Keeping players safe is hugely important to us, and we have lots of processes in place to prevent underage and excessive play. So, these results clearly show that it’s working.”
