UK – Camelot supports minimum age increase for National LotteryBy Lewis - 10 December 2020
Camelot has signalled its support for an increase to the minimum age for playing the National Lottery to 18 years of age, with October 2021 mooted as a target for the law change by the Government.
“We’ve said all along that we would fully support any decision made by the government to raise the minimum age to play,” a Camelot spokesperson said. “Now that a decision has been made to raise the age to 18 by October 2021, we’ll be doing everything we can to implement all of the changes that will be necessary as quickly as possible, while ensuring that we maintain the very high standards demanded of The National Lottery.
“We’ve already started this work in preparation and, subject to receiving the appropriate licence variations and waivers from the Gambling Commission, we’re aiming to complete all of the changes that are needed in our online channels by early April 2021 and, in our retail channel, over the course of the summer – well in advance of the change in law.”
