Camelot runs the most cost-efficient lottery in Europe, with around 4% of total revenue spent on
operating costs. In the period up to March 2011, around 28% of total National Lottery revenue is
expected to go to the Good Causes. Over the course of the third Licence, over 50% of total
National Lottery revenue is expected to be paid to winners in prizes, while 12% of total revenue is
expected to be paid to the Government in Lottery Duty. Depending on performance, total profits
across the course of the Licence will range from 0.3% to a maximum of 0.5% of total revenue.

Alot of the money generated from lottery sales in uk goes to the government before the winnings are calculated anyways:
draws between Saturday 19th November 1994 and Saturday 22nd January 2011.:

25,742,345,769 45% Prize money (minus unclaimed prizes)
15,126,732,538 28% Distribution Fund (plus unclaimed prizes)
6,740,582,989 12% Lottery Tax (Government)
2,808,575,816 5% Camelot Group plc (costs/profit)
2,808,575,816 5% Retailers (costs/profit)
2,808,575,816 5% Super Draws/scratchcards

data from Here

£ 220,751,947 of unclaimed lottery prizes since the start :P

Some of the stats are just sick.

Ive just looked at them stats, if im reading them right

2,281,070,763 81% Super Draw fund unused (ignoring scratchcards)

Does that mean there holding 2.2 billion to top up the lottery jackpot when the money is no good?
#11
sounds like it!
you know when they have those "super draws" 100mil etc... probably from that pot!!
#12
well the money which is left for you after wining is so small in amount,that you can fill it up in your pocket
