Allwyn completes acquisition of the Camelot Lottery Solutions Group
Camelot UK Lotteries Limited today announces that its acquisition by Allwyn has been completed, with Camelot continuing to operate The National Lottery through to the end of the third licence in January 2024.
Changes in Camelot
Allwyn is a multi-national lottery operator with leading market positions in Austria, the Czech Republic, Greece, Cyprus and Italy. In bringing together two leading operators ahead of the start of the next licence, the acquisition heralds an exciting new chapter for The National Lottery.
The completion of the deal has triggered a number of previously announced changes to Camelot’s Board and Management Team, including Sir Hugh Robertson, Camelot’s Chairman since 2018, has stepped down, with Sir Keith Mills appointed as the new Chair.
Clare Swindell and Neil Brocklehurst, formerly Chief Financial Officer and Commercial Director respectively at Camelot, have been appointed by Allwyn as Co-Chief Executives to lead Camelot, following the departure of Nigel Railton.
New National Lottery operator
Allwyn is a leading multi-national lottery operator. Allwyn builds better lotteries that return more to good causes by focusing on innovation, technology, efficiency and safety across a growing casual gaming entertainment portfolio.
The lottery-first approach of focusing on affordable recreational play has earned Allwyn leading market positions with trusted brands across Europe in Austria, Czech Republic, Greece and Cyprus, UK and Italy. Following a successful tender process in 2022, a UK subsidiary of Allwyn was awarded the licence to operate The National Lottery under the Fourth Licence.
