What is the Lotteries Scheme?

CEDR adjudicates disputes between customers and lottery operators who are members of the CEDR Scheme. The operator of the National Lottery, Camelot, is a member of this Scheme.

We are approved as an independent dispute resolution provider by the regulator, The Gambling Commission to Adjudicate disputes related to transactions (game playing).

When you submit your evidence to us, it will be weighed up by an Independent Adjudicator who will assess the claim. Please read our adjudication process, you can download this in the 'Downloads' section to the left. 

A party to a dispute can withdraw their claim at any time during the adjudication process once the case has commenced. However, once a decision is issued, it can only be accepted or rejected.

If you want to complain about CEDR please read our Complaints Procedure document. Once you have read the Complaints Procedure and you want to submit your complaint, please use our Complaint Form below.
