A UK parliamentary committee has recommended that residents of Britain's overseas territories be allowed to play the National Lottery.
If the proposal is approved it will permit residents in the Cayman Islands and other British territories to participate in UK National Lottery games via traditional in-store terminals as well as online.
Introducing the lottery in the Cayman Islands will not be without difficulties because the present laws on the island prohibit gambling. If the laws can be changed the chance of sizable lottery wins on the island would not be the only benefit. The islands would also be eligible for National Lottery grants.
