National Lottery games licences

We grant licences for each game, or class of games, promoted as part of the National Lottery, these include:

Whenever Camelot want to make changes to any of these games they must apply to us for approval.

Before we approve any changes to the game licence or licence additional games we look at issues like:

  • player protection
  • projected returns to good causes
  • protecting player funds
  • legality
  • impact on the National Lottery brand and intellectual property.

The licence to run The National Lottery is called the Section 5 licence.

We check that Camelot complies with the terms of those licences.
