Small Society Lotteries

Gambling Act 2005

A small society lottery is promoted on behalf of a non-commercial society. A society is non-commercial if it is established and conducted:

  • for charitable purposes
  • for the purpose of enabling participation in, or of supporting, sport, athletics or cultural activity, or
  • for any other non-commercial purpose other than that of private gain.

The total value of tickets put on sale in a single lottery cannot exceed £20,000 and the aggregate value of tickets put on sale in a calendar year cannot exceed £250,000. If these limits are exceeded the lottery will be a large society lottery and a licence will be required from the Gambling Commission.

Every Society registered with a local Licensing Authority to run Small Society Lotteries must submit a returns form following each draw.
