The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has defended its administration of the Fourth National Lottery Competition, in which Allwyn Entertainment was chosen as the Preferred Applicant to run the National Lottery from 2024 onwards.
Camelot UK, the incumbent operator of the National Lottery, informed the Commission on Friday that its handling of critical aspects of the competition would be appealed in the High Court.
Camelot Chief Executive Nigel Railton remarked that the commission had ‘failed to provide a satisfactory response’ as to why it had rejected Camelot’s application, which had received the highest score on the scorecard portion of the competition.
Disclosures that the Commission had modified the terms of its evaluation process to favor Allwyn’s application alarmed Camelot.
