£40 billion raised for good causes by National Lottery players

04 June 2019

Today it has been announced by the operator of the National Lottery that the Lottery has raised £40 billion for good causes since 1994.

The Commission’s CEO, Neil McArthur, said:

“This is an incredible achievement - National Lottery players have now raised £40 billion for good causes across the UK since it was launched in 1994.

Ensuring that returns to good causes are maximised is a priority for us as a regulator. This will remain a priority as we look to the future and at how technology and innovation can ensure that the success of the National Lottery continues in the years ahead.”
