Camelot withdraws its £10 scratchcards

Camelot has pulled its £10 ($12.98) scratchcards in the UK market due to concerns they might be aiding players who are suffering from gambling addictions.

Scratchcard

Lotto bosses have informed shops to no longer sell them, to ensure the protection of players.

A Camelot spokesperson is quoted as saying: "Our decision to stop selling £10 scratchcards was based on player protection considerations.

"A part of the ongoing work we carry out is to ensure all of our players can play in a healthy and enjoyable way; we became aware that, unlike any of our other scratchcards, these particular games over-indexed among problem gamblers."

A Gambling Commission spokesperson also said: "After careful consideration of new evidence, both the Commission and the Licensee agreed all scratchcards at the £10 price point should be removed from sale until we are satisfied the risks posed to our duties are mitigated."
