National Lottery sees sharp drop in annual revenues amid ongoing cost-of-living crisis
According to a report in The Guardian, Camelot Group attributed the drop to punters “tightening their belts” amid an increasingly volatile economy and the ongoing cost of living crisis. The Watford-headquartered operator also said sales of instant scratch cards fell by 7% year-on-year to around £3.4 billion, while online revenues fell by 2.6%.
