Camelot applied in March for a judicial review of the commission’s regulation of the 51 community interest companies that make up the Health Lottery because it believed the lottery was attempting to commercialise society lotteries in a way that broke both the spirit and letter of the law.
The High Court last month rejected Camelot’s application, but Camelot said at the time that the judgment was "legally flawed" and that it would appeal.
A spokeswoman for Camelot this week confirmed that papers had been lodged with the Court of Appeal. She said: "Camelot’s application to appeal was filed on 28 August."
A spokesman for the Gambling Commission declined to comment on the appeal. A spokeswoman for the Health Lottery also declined to comment.
- Camelot has applied for leave to appeal against the decision but permission to appeal has not yet been granted
