Gamblers move to online lottery

Ian Grant

Gamblers are logging on to the national lottery in increasing numbers, says lottery operator Camelot.

More than 2.7 million people have now registered to play on Camelot’s interactive platforms. This is up from 2.1 million at the start of 2007.

This has boosted online sales to £5.8m a week, and taking contributions to good causes to £1.5m a week.

Gamblers can choose between the internet, digital TV and mobile phones as access devices. Camelot claims players find national-lottery.co.uk to be one of the easiest websites to use on the internet.

“88% of players say using the lottery website is either a ‘very positive’ or ‘extremely positive’ experience,” it said.
