The proposed private manager of the Pennsylvania Lottery has come under fire in the United Kingdom where it operates the National Lottery over $8 million it set aside for bonuses for company executives.

Word of the bonuses comes on the heels of Camelot Global Services doubling the price of lottery tickets, which sparked lottery players in the United Kingdom to call for boycotting the lottery.

A story in the United Kingdom-based publication, The Mail, quotes the deputy leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, Paul Nuttall, saying "Lottery players are being fleeced...with these bonus increases we can see why.'"
