  19. Small lotteries explained

    In essence a lottery is an arrangement which satisfies the statutory description of either a simple lottery or a complex lottery, as per section 14 of the Gambling Act 2005 ("the Act")

    An arrangement is a simple lottery if:

    • Persons are required to pay to participate;
    • One or more prizes are allocated to one or more members of a class; and
    • The prizes are allocated by a process which relies wholly on chance.

    An arrangement is a complex lottery if:

    • Persons are required to pay to participate;
    • One or more prizes are allocated to one or more members of a class;
    • The prizes are allocated by a series of processes; and
    • The first of those processes relies wholly on chance.

    Arrangements that fulfil all of the criteria of either of the above categories are defined as a lottery under the Act.

  23. Guidance on small society lotteries

    Small society lotteries, often run by schools and other community organisations, are caught by the provisions in the Gambling Act 2005 relating to children. Small society lottery organisers and promoters will commit offences if they sell tickets to under 16s.

    Lottery organisers and promoters are reminded that these lotteries should ensure that they comply with the provisions of the Gambling Act 2005 and that in particular children should not be involved in the sale or purchase of small society lottery tickets. The provisions relating to this type of lottery are set out in this attachment.

  25. List of offences

    This is a list of offences that can be committed under the Licensing Act 2003. Council or police officers can prosecute persons for any of these offences. Cases can be dealt with by way of a formal caution or in the Magistrates Court. The Court may also order the forfeiture of a Personal Licence, or suspend it for up to six months. If you are convicted of an offence, the police may also raise objections to you holding a Personal Licence, and the council can hold a hearing to consider whether your Personal Licence should be revoked.
