Pa. taps British firm to run $3.5B state lottery

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A top official in Gov. Tom Corbett's administration is telling employees that a contract has been awarded to the British lottery operator to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery.

The announcement by Secretary of Revenue Daniel Meuser to lottery employees Friday makes Pennsylvania the third state to hire a private lottery manager. Meuser says the contract is formally awarded, but Camelot cannot begin until the contract is executed. He says that's expected to happen next week.

Challenges await the Republican governor's agreement with Camelot Global Services.

The union representing state lottery employees is suing to block an agreement with Camelot and has filed a grievance and an unfair labor practice charge.

Messages left for spokespeople for Corbett and Meuser weren't immediately returned.
