Fourth National Lottery licence competition: response to media article

10 February 2022

In response to an inaccurate article published on the Daily Telegraph website and in today's newspaper (10 February 2022)the Gambling Commission said:

“Our job is to run the best competition we possibly can – one that is fair and open, and results in the best outcome for players and good causes.

"The Board of Commissioners make the final decision and will inform the Government when the final decision is made.

"We are still in the process of evaluation and today's Daily Telegraph piece is simply based on false and inaccurate information. We have asked them to remove the article in its current form from the newspaper's website.”
