UK Ticket Organizer Camelot announced the best year of UK National Lotto ticket sales. No bad performance for a company based in a country that is experiencing a deep recession.
From 31 March 2008 to 31 March 2009, ticket sales increased to £ 5 billion, which was £ 182,800,000 more than in the previous year. Overall, sales have increased by 12% in the last five years.
Nearly sales were motivated by people supporting the Olympic Games (to be held in London in 2012) by buying more lottery tickets and scratch cards to raise funds for this opportunity.
Another three years is expected, but the £ 750 Olympic goal looks good with an already increased GBP 400 million and a GBP 750 million additional reserve plan that can possibly be made from cash redirection from other lottery benefactors.
Camelot, run by the British Lotto for three consecutive dates, said he considered it to increase sales growth when people play lotteries either from mobile phones or the Internet.
By playing in this lottery, customers will save time by not requiring tickets every week. But even more importantly, it eliminates the possibility of ticket loss, and if played through the internet, even an e-mail message can be sent after each draw so that all of their lotteries enter without risk.
Overall, the future looks good for organizers, their customers and good reasons supported by the British National Lottery.
