Ever wondered how each pound spent on the UK Lottery is divided up?
Total National Lottery revenue is broken down as follows:
50% to Winners
28% for The Good Causes
12% to The Government
5% in commissions on sales to retailers. Camelot`s retailers earn on average £7,700 per annum in lottery commission.
4.5% in operating costs
0.5% in profit to Camelot, the company running the lottery.
