The Gambling Commission has agreed to Camelot’s proposals to make changes to the National Lottery games, Lotto and HotPicks. This means the changes will be ready for launch in the autumn by Camelot, subject to any additional regulatory approvals and consents under the Section 5 Operating Licence.  

The Commission has carried out a thorough assessment of Camelot’s proposals for the changes, in line with its statutory duties. Commissioners were satisfied that the proposals pose no threat to the propriety of the National Lottery, that player protection will be maintained, and that returns to good causes are likely to be maximised. 

Our decision is set out on the Lotto and HotPicks pages.
