Small society lotteries licence

Small society lotteries

Groups running small society lotteries must be registered with the local authority where the society’s principal office is located.

More than 1 lottery can be run during the year; however, no more than £20,000 worth of tickets can be put on sale for each lottery and the aggregate proceeds during the year must not exceed £250,000.

If either of these limits is likely to be exceeded, it is the responsibility of the society to apply to the Gambling Commission for a licence to operate a large society lottery.
