Apply for a (non-commercial) lotteries and amusements licence

A Small Society Lottery Registration is required by any society organising a lottery where tickets are sold in advance in the run up to the draw date.

If ticket sales are likely to exceed £20,000 for any single lottery, or a total of £250,000 in a calendar year, the society must apply for a licence from the Gambling Commission instead.

Simple raffles involving books of cloakroom tickets sold on the day and drawn on the day do not need to be registered.

The registration fee is £40 and it must be renewed every year. The annual renewal fee is £20.
