arrowLottery Licences

If lottery tickets are being sold to the general public then you must apply to the Local Authority for registration. You must be registered for raffle, tombolas, 200 clubs and any event which involves the sale of tickets and an element of chance.

All proceeds must be for charitable purposes or participation in, or support of, athletic sports or games or cultural activities. For lotteries you must set out the amount collected, the amount given in prizes and any deducted expenses.

All lotteries, etc, held under this registration must have properly printed tickets showing:

  • Registration number.
  • Name of promoting society.
  • Promoter's name and address.
  • The Council who have registered the charity.
  • Date of the Draw.

If however, the raffle tickets are sold and the raffle drawn on the same day, for example at dinner dances or garden fetes, then you will not need a certificate of registration.

How much does a License Cost?

An initial license costs £40. A renewal licence costs £20.
