National Lottery Retailer Agreement
6.10 Another fundamental condition is that the lottery be considered the ration of winners (especially jackpot winners). Every opportunity is seized by the operator, if the winners of the public agree to celebrate their success in the national and local media in an apparent manner and with guarantees to preserve the dignity of the winners. 3.1 About 47 per cent of the total lottery proceeds are distributed in prizes to players, the rest goes to Good Causes (30 per cent), lottery duty (12 per cent), the reseller commission (5 per cent) and the operator to cover costs and profits (6 per cent). For example, Camelot must have a merchant in each postcode district that has more than 2000 inhabitants. Camelot is not in a position to do so when there are very few retailers in this area and those who are refused to take a national lottery terminal. In such cases, we may waive the licensing requirement to the extent that it applies in this area. 5.5 Operation Child focuses on the education and training of retailers. But he also has a heavy lead with a three-shot policy and exit. This means that the retailer`s lottery terminal will be removed after the third incident. We are aware of the difficulties retailers face in assessing age and dealing with obvious years under 16, but Camelot`s group of distributors has itself agreed that the plan is appropriate and fair. The growth of effective age card systems such as Validate and Citizen Card in recent months has contributed to this, although these cards are far from universal.
2.4 When the lottery opened in November 1994, approximately 10,000 points of sale with OLT s, with at least one point of sale, had been created in each local authority territory to ensure national distribution. By the end of 1996, this number had increased to about 25,000 OLTs and 11,000 GVTs, which corresponds to the current retail size. The number of outlets maintained by the operator is a licensing requirement. 3.2 The price level is determined by the game, given the attractiveness required to motivate players (for example.B. main prize amount, lowest price level, number of prize steps). The pricing structures are de-scientificd by the operator, taking into account international benchmarks and by specific market studies, in order to test the relative attractiveness of alternative options. The total payment of the lottery therefore depends on the relative sales made by each game. 1.9 The Commission decided in August 2000, after reviewing the improvements to the offers, that it could not accept either in light of its legal obligations. After giving legal advice on what to do next, the Commission negotiated only adjustments to its offer and a draft agreement on pre-licensing and licensing with the Popular Lottery. However, such a negotiation with a single bidder was found to be illegal. The Board did not appeal against the judgment, as it would have prolonged the uncertainty. The Commission expected that, if negotiations with the People`s Lottery were to conclude satisfactorily, the 12-month gap between the announcement of the successful bid and the start of the new licence, which the new bidder considers essential, would constitute the 12-month gap.
The Commission acknowledges that, given the audit of judicial review, including with Camelot, it may, after the current licence expires, grant an interim licence to close the 12-month gap.
