Small society lottery - Regulations under the Gambling Act 2005

Regulations under the Gambling Act 2005

As the purpose of permitted lotteries is to raise money for non-commercial causes, the Act requires that a minimum proportion of the money (20%) raised by the lottery is channelled to the goals of the Society that promoted the lottery. If a Small Society lottery breaks these limits then it will be in breach of the Act’s provisions and consequently liable for prosecution.
