More than 4,600 millionaires have won their fortunes through the National Lottery, which has also raised more than £37bn for good causes since Camelot held the first draw in 1994. In 2014 the Hertfordshire firm, which is owned by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, split into two divisions, one running the UK lottery and one focusing on overseas opportunities. The two divisions are led by Nigel Railton, 50, who announced a strategic review last month. After close of research Camelot said UK ticket sales had fallen from £7.6bn last year to £6.9bn in 2017.
