Frequently Asked Questions - Will the National Lottery continue to operate in an independent Scotland?
Yes, that is the current Scottish Government’s intention. People will still be able to play National Lottery games, and the infrastructure enabling them to do so will remain in place.
Scotland will continue to receive a fair share of ticket sales to support good causes. Following independence, all decisions about the allocation of Scotland’s share of funds will be taken in Scotland, ensuring that money raised from lottery ticket sales is used to respond to the needs of Scotland’s local communities.
