Camelot introduces new rules
It was reported by Daily Mail this weekend that people who like to play the British National Lottery from abroad, including British expats, travelling or business people, will be prevented from betting due to the new rules introduced by the lottery operator Camelot. The new set of rules will be introduced next week, and it implies that players must physically be in Britain or the Isle of Man to play the lottery online, or even to make changes to their online lottery account.
According to the operator, most other countries have a similar practice, making it illegal to purchase a ticket for an overseas lottery.
In line with these rules, any winnings made on the tickets purchased from abroad will not be paid, says Camelot, which refused to specify the number of overseas players who enter the lottery online. However the Daily Mail assesses that the numbers are measured in tens of thousands of regular players who play while overseas, either on holiday or as expatriates.
Camelot's tool for identification of foreign internet service providers is location software, which may indicate the user is overseas, triggering a message to warn players about a potential breach of the rules. However, the use of a foreign provider does not necessarily imply that a customer is overseas, since many companies in Britain use foreign internet service providers, as do considerable numbers of mobile phone users..
