Indian lottery operator Sugal & Damani has withdrawn from consideration in the fourth U.K. National Lottery license competition, the Telegraph reported. The competition is for a 10-year contract.
That leaves four bidders, including Camelot, which operates the lottery now, former adult magazine publisher Richard Desmond, Sisal and Allwyn of Italy and the Czech Lottery operator Sazka Group.
The U.K. Gambling Commission is overseeing the bidding. It will announce the new operator in September.
