This question was answered on 3rd August 2020

DCMS held a consultation seeking views on whether to raise the minimum age for playing National Lottery games as part of work on the next National Lottery licence, which is due to begin in 2023. The responses are currently being considered and I will formally respond in due course.

The consultation on the minimum age for playing National Lottery games provides information on the estimated number of National Lottery players by age brackets which include the age bracket 16 and 17 year olds and 18 to 24 year olds.

Estimated number of 16 and 17 year old National Lottery ‘regular players’ based on survey data between April 2016 and March 2019 and population estimates.

Played NL draw-based games

Played NL scratchcards

Played online instant win games

204,000
