Innovation: the lifeblood of life-changing

Innovation in games design, digital platforms and e-commerce has made us the most successful operator of an interactive lottery in Europe.


Responsible design

We design games that are both fun to play, and minimise any harm that may come to our players. It’s a philosophy that’s seen us awarded the highest level of accreditation by the WLA Responsible Gaming Framework. Our responsible play initiatives have also been audited to ensure they are aligned with the EL Responsible Gaming Standard.

In 2014, we launched a major new platform, enabling players to play Instant Win Games on mobile for the first time.

Players can also use Barclays Pingit as a quick way to pay and play on their smartphone
