National Lottery players to benefit from mobile payments

Camelot has teamed up with Barclays’ Pingit service to offer the first-ever mobile payment option for The National Lottery, in a bid to make paying for and playing games easier, convenient and more accessible.

From next month, people will be able to play the Lotto, Thunderball and EuroMillions games by Lucky Dip through the Pingit app or by scanning a QR code using their smartphone or tablet.

Tim Copper, digital director at Camelot said: “With faster payment and registration, Pingit will make it even easier for our players to enjoy the excitement of National Lottery games on the go, with the added security offered by Barclays. This collaboration with Barclays represents a real breakthrough in speed and simplicity for our players – and underlines how we’re continuing to radically enhance The National Lottery playing experience.”

Darren Foulds, managing director of Pingit and mobile payments at Barclays said: “We’re proud to be working with Camelot, making life easier for players to pay for National Lottery games straight from their mobile, with a secure, instant and simple way to pay. This is a great example of how Pingit has expanded from being the first person-to-person mobile payments app in the UK to now being a viable digital option for paying for everyday goods and services from a mobile phone.”
