Licences and permits directory - Small society lotteries

Small society lotteries are lotteries promoted for the benefit of a non-commercial society.

A society is non-commercial if it is established and conducted for charitable purposes, it enables participation in or supporting of sport, athletics and cultural activities and for any other non-commercial purpose other than that of private gain.

The total value of tickets for sale for a single lottery cannot exceed £20,000. The annual value of tickets for all lotteries per year must not exceed £250,000.

If you plan to exceed either of these values, you must be licensed with the Gambling Commission.
