Retail remains largest sales channel for Camelot as sales jump 3.7%

first_img UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 maintains momentum against COVID-19 impacts August 19, 2020 Share Despite reporting significant growth in its digital operations, retail continues to be the largest sales channel for the UK National Lottery, with 75 per cent of sales coming via the in-store terminals.With over £5,373.3m of sales generated by the retail kiosks, retail has been a driving force for the continued success of Camelot – the UK National Lottery operator since it was launched in 1994.Camelot has reported that ticket sales for the year were £7,206.8 million – an increase of £255.1 million on the corresponding figures for the previous year. This growth was aided by a number of factors, including record digital sales of £1,833.5 million, as well as an all-time high of £1,019.5 million through smartphones and tablets (55 per cent of digital sales).As well as reporting record levels of retail and digital intake, the National Lottery has recently been recognised by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) for its contributions to good causes after its charitable donations passed the £40bn mark.“This is an incredible achievement,” said Gambling Commission Chief Executive Neil McArthur. “Ensuring that returns to good causes are maximised is a priority for us as regulator. This will remain a priority as we look to the future and at how technology and innovation can ensure that the success of the National Lottery continues in the years ahead.”From 1 April 2018 to 21 March 2019, Camelot has generated over £1,654.7m for Good Causes, taking the total delivered to more than £40 billion over the past 25 years. Funding has now been awarded to 565,000 individual projects – an average of 200 lottery grants in every UK postcode district.Camelot CEO, Nigel Railton, praised the new results released: “As we celebrate 25 years of The National Lottery and the massive difference it has made to UK society – with an incredible £40 billion raised for Good Causes – I’m delighted to see our hard work paying off.“Sales across most of the business are up – with our ongoing investment and innovation in retail and digital continuing to yield positive results. In particular, we’ve spent much of the last 12 to 18 months getting our draw-based games back in good health – with a more balanced portfolio that now offers something for everyone – and making improvements to our Scratchcards and online Instant Win Games in terms of product design, range, merchandising and availability, which has led to record sales of those games.“We’ve also made excellent progress on our brand relevance – better connecting The National Lottery’s purpose with play – with the launch of our ‘Amazing Starts Here’ brand strategy and our ongoing partnership with ITV to ensure The National Lottery is a key fixture on primetime Saturday night TV. And we have some really exciting plans lined up with the other members of The National Lottery family over the coming months to thank players for the enormous contribution they’ve made over the past 25 years.“Looking forward to next year, it will be very much more of the same – as we look to build on the steady progress that we’ve made across all areas of our business. Last year, we reviewed our player protection approach to ensure we went far beyond our licence requirements in fulfilling our responsibilities to consumers. “In the coming year, we will continue to make our player protection activities best-in-class through our work to reduce excessive play, prevent underage play and promote safe play, as well as by working closely with partners such as GambleAware – as part of its Safer Gambling Campaign – and GamCare.“While we’ll continue to face economic uncertainty and increasing competition from the gambling and wider lotteries sectors – and while there is still a huge amount of work to do – I’m delighted that the foundations we’ve put in place and the initiatives we’ve already implemented are paying off.” Railton concluded: “With the innovative plans we have lined up, I’m confident that The National Lottery will continue to make a huge difference to the lives of people and communities throughout the UK.” Share StumbleUpon Submit Camelot aims for ‘Big September’ supporting a high street recovery August 26, 2020 Related Articleslast_img read more

Byron Scott to make lineup changes following Lakers’ 113-96 loss to Celtics

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error BOSTON — The memories stay pierced in their mind, the dark moments both Kobe Bryant and Byron Scott experienced in the Lakers’ rivalry against the Celtics still fueling their drive. Bryant still thinks about the Lakers’ 39-point Game 6 drubbing to Boston in the 2008 NBA Finals, arguing it then fueled two consecutive NBA championships. Scott still remembers the Lakers’ Game 7 loss to the Celtics in the 1984 NBA Finals, believing it sparked more urgency in beating Boston two times later that decade.So years from now, how will the Lakers’ remember their 113-96 loss on Friday to the Boston Celtics (6-11) at TD Garden? With the Lakers (5-15) completing almost a quarter of what has amounted to their worst start in franchise history, only one thought came to mind.“Just sitting there and talking to my coaches,” Scott said, “the lasting memory will be how many changes will I make to our starting lineup?” “Five-and-15. That’s enough right there,” Scott said. “It’s that and knowing we can be better than that and knowing we have to have guys every single night to lay it on the line. We’re not getting that on a consistent basis.” Both Lin and Lakers reserve guard Ronnie Price said Scott did not inform the team about his plan to change the starting lineups. But they remained deferential. “If we were in the first place in the West and one of the top teams in the league, then changes were made, that would be a different story,” Price said. “Then again, who cares? If it’s going to benefit the team, if he wants to test something out, just go with the flow.”After all, the Lakers lost to Boston in several key areas. Celtics guard Rajon Rondo made up for a 12-point performance on 6-of-17 shooting with 16 assists, which eclipsed the Lakers 14 they posted as a team. The Celtics outrebounded the Lakers, 54-38. Boston breezed past the Lakers for 27 fast-break points. All of which prompted Lakers forward Nick Young to storm out of a postgame interview that lasted only 45 seconds, a surprising development considering the charismatic reserve rarely has ever met a camera he does not like. “Frustration is good,” Bryant said when told of Young’s behavior. “You have to use frustration and channel it the right way.”Just like how the Lakers did following their 1984 NBA Finals loss to Boston by winning NBA championships against the Celtics in 1985 and 1987.“You never forget those setbacks you have,” Scott said. “That makes you come back the next year that much more determined.Just like how the Lakers did following their 2008 Finals loss to Boston by stringing a back-to-back title run, including a seven-game series victory over the Celtics in 2010.“It was a big turning point for us,” Bryant said. “It really propelled us to win back-to-back championships. We understood the aggressiveness that we needed to play with.”Will this lineup change mark the small step toward similar results? Or will this just amount toward shuffling chairs on a sinking ship?“We’re still trying to figure things out,” Bryant said. “It’s an up and down thing for us in terms of how we play.”center_img So who will become the casualty of any shuffling? Will it entail Lakers guard Jeremy Lin, who sat for the fourth quarter after posting 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, two assists and two turnovers? Will it involve Wesley Johnson, who went scoreless on five missed field goals? Will it include Carlos Boozer, who had two points on a 1-of-6 clip? Scott declined to offer specifics, only confirming the Lakers’ starting lineup will look different when they host New Orleans Sunday at Staples Center. “I follow his lead. So whatever he feels is right, I’ll back him up 100 percent,” Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said about Scott after posting 22 points on 9-of-21 shooting. “Just play. Come out, do your job, stay within yourself and play hard.” Scott strongly hinted about a lineup shuffling in the past week. It hardly helped the Lakers, who fell flat in a game that once served as an NBA Finals preview. last_img read more

Bosnian Hand-ballers Getting Ready for the Match against Belarus

first_imgThe selector of the national handball team of B&H Dragan Marković held today the second training of our best hand-ballers who started practicing on Thursday for the match of the first round of group 2 against Belarus to be held in Minsk on October 29th within the qualifications for the EC 2016.After the training, Marković said at the hall “Ramiz Salčin” at Mojmilo that he is pleased with the players and the way they play at the beginning of the preparations.“To us, the key thing is to, above all, have a good atmosphere within the team. We have it for the moment, as well as a good team. I would like to remind that in the European handball circles our victory against Island in 2014 is often mentioned and almost no one mentions our nine victories in the past period. They didn’t occur by accident. To make a winning team and a favorable result, one has to have a good atmosphere. Discipline is also a crucial factor for success as well as team spirit. At the end, you get a good result which connects us all.” – pointed out Marković.By Friday morning, 17 players arrived at the gathering and others should also arrive as soon as they complete their obligations in the club.(Source: Oslobođenje)last_img read more

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESTIAGO PEREIRA, STARR OF QUALITY, and WINNER: “This was an easier spot today. It looked like Coco Kisses was the only speed and that’s the way it worked out. My filly wanted to go at the half mile pole, but we waited and she ran really good. Nice win.”TRAINER QUOTESBILL SPAWR, STARR OF QUALITY, WINNER: “The race went pretty much as we drew it up on paper. We thought Mike (Smith on Coco Kisses) might take the lead and force us to go outside and that’s what happened, but Tiago and I talked about that this morning.“Being a short favorite in a small field adds pressure, but we had the best horse and it worked out, so we’re happy.”OWNER QUOTESJON LINDO, STARR OF QUALITY, WINNER: “She had a lot of conditions we thought we could take out and we were having trouble finding the right races for her. We ran in an open race when she still had the Cal-bred condition and I didn’t think anyone would take her, but when they ran her back we said, ‘Well, we still have the condition,’ so we went back and it has worked out very well.“We waited to put her in a graded stakes because there wasn’t one available for Cal-breds until this one.“She doesn’t handle the turf as well as she does dirt, so we have been trying to keep her on the dirt, and getting the two-turn races for fillies and mares has been a bit difficult, so when you get the chance you have to run. Trying Paradise Woods last time out maybe wasn’t a good idea, so we thought we would do something else.”NOTES: The winning owners are Tom Acker and Jon Lindo.last_img read more
