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

(Lottery Duty)

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.

    Out of every £1 spent on the National Lottery, around 28p goes to Good Causes. In the last year this was distributed as follows:



    Health, Education & the environment 33.33%

    Sports 16.67%

    Arts 16.67%

    Heritage 16.67%

    Charities 16.67%

      Over £16 billion has been raised for Good Causes to date.

      Over 185,000 projects have received funds from The National Lottery, ranging from Olympic athletes and charities, through to schools and underprivileged groups.

        The Big Lottery Fund, the largest of the National Lottery Good Cause Distributors has announced today that £12 million will go to a programme of long-term reconstruction initiatives to help tackle the Tsunami Earthquake disaster.

        Funding will be used for projects aimed at rebuilding communities devastated by the disaster and restoring shattered civil infrastructure.

        “It was very important to my Board that we respond quickly and effectively to public opinion that Lottery Money should be used to support the communities shattered by the Tsunami Earthquake. Money is not just needed now, but long into the future and Lottery players can be confident this funding will continue to play an important role in the reconstruction of these devastated areas for years to come ” said Sir Clive Booth, Chair of the Big Lottery Fund.
