Camelot has reported that National Lottery sales topped the £8bn mark for the second year in a row during 2021/22, with a record amount of more than £1.9bn raised for good causes.

Making up almost 60 per cent of sales, retail remains the largest National Lottery sales channel and Camelot continues to work closely with around 44,500 retailers across the UK – with independent outlets making up the majority.

As a result, National Lottery retailers earned £265.4m in commission, the equivalent of around £6,000 per store.

Over and above this, Camelot’s in-store standards and rewards programme for independent retailers continued to prove hugely successful over the year, with cash rewards of £548,000 awarded to independent shopkeepers.

Announcing the results, Camelot CEO Nigel Railton said: “Achieving National Lottery sales of over £8 billion two years in a row while maintaining very high levels of public participation – despite the challenging and changing external environment – proves that our strategy of offering great consumer choice in a safe and convenient way continues to be hugely successful. It’s also testament to the resilient, innovative, and responsive business model that we’ve put in place over the last few years.”
