The figures are correct, and your argument seems right too - I'd add that the National Lottery is the large single component of the "gross gaming yield", ie the actual expenditure, see p.5 of this http://www.culture.gov.uk/NR/rdonlyres/F006D42C-0B6A-4414-BB55-B56222C7C57A/0/gamblingreviewchapter5.pdf

On the other hand just because "gross gaming yield" is so much lower than "turnover" it doesn't necessarily mean the "turnover" figure is not relevant - as Wayne Rooney will tell you the winnings often don't go to the same people who lost it.
