The Fed has called for continuity between independent retailers and Allwyn Entertainment after the multi-national lottery operator was named as the preferred bidder to take over the running of the UK’s national lottery.

Allwyn is due to take over the National Lottery in 2024, after three decades of Camelot holding the licence.

The Fed’s National President Narinder Randhawa said: “We have always had a great partnership with Camelot, so we are disappointed for them to lose the licence after almost 30 years.

“During this time, a huge amount of positive work has been done to help local communities and good causes. We thank Camelot for their continued support and we will carry on working together over the next two years.

“Thousands of our members have lottery terminals in their stores and have played a major part in the success of the National Lottery since it was launched in 1994.

“We are confident we can establish a good working relationship with Allwyn to continue the support for independent retailers in the future and look forward to a seamless transition.”
