It Could Be You, the first in-depth study of the Lottery, reveals the politics, rivalries and tensions behind the winning of the licence and the running of the lottery. It records how an American multimillionaire masterminded Camelot's winning bid for the licence; how, amid charges of incompetence and insensitivity, the Lottery has changed the face of Britain as billions have been channelled into the arts, charities, sports and the national heritage; and how the resolution of a High Court libel case led to the resignation of the first all-powerful lottery regulator.

As the government prepares to award the lottery licence for the second time, the authors pose some challenging questions. Was Camelot handed a licence to print money, as its critics suggest? Has the government learned from its past mistakes? Will Richard Branson finally achieve his ambition to head a not-for-profit lottery?
