The national lottery created 365 millionaires and delivered a record £1.95bn for good causes in the year to March 2013. Camelot has run the lottery since it began in 1994, working with 37,000 retailers nationwide. New games and greater online sales have helped to boost sales, which are taken here as net of duty and of payouts to winners and good causes. Camelot is owned by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and run by group chief executive Dianne Thompson, 62.
