Sisal to Back Camelot in Face-Off with Gambling Commission

Italy-based lottery operator Sisal is considering plans to partner with Camelot on its bid to challenge the Gambling Commission’s decision to select Allwyn as the UK’s National Lottery operator.

Camelot is taking the UKGC to court after giving Czech lottery operator Allwyn approval to operate the national lottery. Camelot, a subsidiary of the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, has run the lottery since its establishment in 1994.

Its main grouse, which serves as the basis of its lawsuit, is that the UKGC changed the rules for the tender in the final weeks of the two-year process.

Sisal will join forces with Camelot in its High Court bid after it also failed in its bid to secure a license for the UK’s National lottery. The joint lawsuit is expected to delay the handing over of the National Lottery license to Allwyn Entertainment for three months or even more.

However, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission has responded by saying that its process of choosing Allwyn to take over the license was fair, robust, and open. It also asserted that it had taken “every step possible to ensure a level playing field.”

Allwyn is an international lottery operator with an active presence in Austria, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, and Cyprus. Getting licensed for the UK’s National Lottery would undoubtedly aid its growth and expansion in the global online gaming and lottery market.
