Global gaming giant, Allwyn, is poised to purchase Camelot UK, the present manager of the UK National Lottery, from the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board. This transaction unites the existing manager (Camelot) and the incoming manager (Allwyn, through its Allwyn Entertainment Ltd subsidiary) of the UK National Lottery.

Allwyn’s Chief Executive Officer, Robert Chvatal, conveyed enthusiasm regarding the purchase, underscoring the mutual dedication of both organizations to the National Lottery and its charitable endeavors. He stressed the advantages of having the third and fourth license holders under a single entity, guaranteeing a more seamless handover and a more robust outlook for the lottery.

The acquisition is projected to conclude in the initial quarter of 2023, subject to regulatory clearances. Until then, Camelot will maintain its independent operations under the stipulations of its current license, effective until January 31, 2024.

Allwyn revealed that the Camelot purchase will launch them into a fresh chapter, one in which they are prepared to oversee the National Lottery. AEL will collaborate closely with Camelot and the Gambling Commission to guarantee a seamless handover for the fourth license.

A high-ranking official at Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, a significant National Lottery stakeholder, conveyed satisfaction in their enduring alliance and backing of the lottery. They emphasized Camelot’s accomplishments in generating substantial funds for charitable endeavors over time, aiding numerous organizations throughout the UK.

He further affirmed their belief that this transaction will clear the path for a smooth transfer to the fourth license holder and extended well wishes to Allwyn. He concluded by expressing appreciation for Camelot’s management and workforce for their commitment and efforts in effectively operating the National Lottery, particularly for attaining unprecedented returns for good causes in the preceding year.
