Changes to lottery law | Third Sector

Changes to lottery law | Third Sector: "The government has laid before parliament a draft order to amend schedule 11 to the Gambling Act 2015 to make it easier for small-scale lotteries to be used to raise money for charities and other good causes. If approved, the Legislative Reform (Exempt Lotteries) Order 2016 will come into force on 6 April next year.

The proposals include allowing incidental lotteries to take place at both commercial and non-commercial events. Fundraising lotteries could then be offered by, for example, pubs, clubs, shops, concerts, festivals and trade fairs at their events. It would also become possible for private society, work and residents' lotteries to be promoted for purposes other than private gain."
