A Camelot spokesperson said:
“We accept the outcome of the Gambling Commission’s investigation in respect of three unrelated historical incidents. We are sorry that some of our controls fell short of the mark in certain very specific circumstances and have paid the fine. We always strive to operate The National Lottery to the highest possible standards and, given its scale and complexity, we’re proud of our track record of running The National Lottery with extremely high levels of integrity.
“We welcome the Gambling Commission’s recognition that, as soon as the issues became known to us, we reported them and acted promptly to resolve them. We’re also pleased that the Commission makes clear that we did not act negligently, and that there was no negative impact on returns to Good Causes or financial benefit to Camelot.”
