From October 1 2021 it will be against the Law to sell National Lottery products to those under the age of 18. In preparation, Camelot updated its rules and increased the age to play National Lottery games from 16 to 18 years old from April 22 2021. This meant a number of operational changes had to be made in stores and Camelot thanks retailers for their support.

In turn, and in order to support National Lottery retailers with the forthcoming change in Law, Camelot is extending the sell through date of a limited number of its Scratchcard games containing the ‘16+’ logo, as set out in Table 1 below. This is because these Scratchcard games still have top prizes available.  

As such, you are now permitted to keep the Scratchcard games listed in Table 1 below on sale until  September 22 2021. This provides you with a further three weeks sell through period. 

Please be aware that these games must be removed from sale before 23:00 hours on 22nd September 2021.

Table 1


Due to last top prize claims, the Scratchcard games listed in Table 2 below must not be sold after 23:00 hours on 1st September 2021 and must be removed from sale:

Table 2 


The closure date change does not affect the last date to pay out prizes, which remains as  February 28 2022 (23.00hrs) and the date to return all closed games remains as  January 31 2022 for all 28 games listed in Table 1 and Table 2.

Following this communication, should a last top prize be won on any of the games in Table 1 you will be notified in the usual manner.
