Small society lotteries
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 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.
