Halt plans to double the cost of playing the lottery to £2

This petition had 21 supporters

There is a growing body of evidence which shows that Lotto players come from poorer backgrounds. For Chamelot to double the cost of the National Lottery during an economic crisis is socially irresponsible.

The cost is due to rise in autumn 2013. If we get enough signatures we may be able to influence Camelot's decision.

Alongside submitting these signatures to Camelot they will also be submitted to The National Lottery Fund, the NDPB who regulate the lottery and the Right Hon Hugh Richardson, a Minister in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport who's portfolio includes Gambling and the National Lottery. We believe that unless Camelot can reverse this decision on its own it should then become as matter to be dealt with by those who are charged with regulating gambling and safeguarding the vulnerable with regard to this matter.
