Lotteries - More Information

Information about the types of lottery permitted under the Gambling Act 2005

The Act creates two types of lottery - simple and complex.

Simple Lottery.  A lottery is a simple lottery if:

  • persons have to pay to participate,
  • prizes are allocated to one or more members of a class, and
  • the prizes are allocated wholly by chance.

Complex Lottery.  A lottery is a complex lottery if:

  • persons have to pay to participate,
  • prizes are allocated to one or more members of a class,
  • the prizes are allocated by a series of processes, and
  • the first of the processes relies wholly on chance.

Most lotteries organised by local societies and organisations will be simple lotteries.

We will aim to issue your registration within 6 working days of receipt of a valid application.

You can access further advice on Lotteries from the Gambling Commission Link on the right side of this page.
