Richard Desmond 'plans National Lottery bid'
Richard Desmond, the owner of the Daily and Sunday Express newspapers, plans to bid for the right to run the National Lottery when it comes up for renewal. Camelot has the right to run the National Lottery until 2023 - after securing a four-year extension to its contract in 2012. It is not a national lottery but a collection of 51 local society lotteries that raise funds for health-related good causes. The National Lottery has awarded more than £63bn in prize money, making some 4,600 people millionaires. The National Lottery Awards, which recognises recipients of National Lottery Good Causes funding, will continue to be shown on BBC One.
