UK firm is lone bidder for Pa. lottery

A "Camelot" of a different kind is courting the Pennsylvania Lottery.

Camelot Global Services out of the United Kingdom is the lone bidder for the lottery.

Camelot runs the U.K.'s national lottery.

It's promising about $34 billion in profits over 20 years if it gets control.

Still state lottery sales increased more than 8-percent last year.

Privatization opponents are questioning why Governor Tom Corbett wants to pay a private company when sales are already increasing.

Corbett's administration says expanding the lottery into online games and others is crucial to producing more revenue.
