Camelot has proposed a number of remedies in an attempt to reverse the National Lottery Commission’s decision to block it from entering the e-payment market.
The National Lottery Commission last month provisionally decided to block Camelot to offer mobile top-ups and bill payments through its 28,000 lottery terminals due to concerns over competition law.
However, Camelot has today published a set of remedies that have been put out to consultation until 17 September.
The remedies include committing to full transparency, separating accounts for the new business and committing to be bound by a “fair trading condition”.
In a statement the company said: “Camelot firmly believes that its detailed and carefully considered plans, based on thorough and robust legal advice, should allow it to offer commercial services through National Lottery retailers, raising considerable revenues for good causes and providing greater choice for consumers and retailers in a sector where competition is much needed.”
