Lawful Raffles Checklist

Checklist for Lawful Raffles

CO.LOT.03

This Checklist for Lawful Raffles provides a list of tests and checks to be applied in order to check whether the relevant aspects of a raffle (lottery) planned to be run for the benefit of a charity or other good cause will be within what is permitted by the Gambling Act 2005 as amended by the Legislative Reform (Exempt Lotteries) Order 2016 on 6 April 2016.

This checklist is intended as an aid for anyone planning, organising, running or otherwise concerned with a raffle for the benefit of a charity or other good cause to be run by any group or organisation on or after 6 April 2016.

The change in the law effective from 6 April 2016 has given greater scope for carrying out fundraising for the benefit of charities or other good causes, and this is reflected in the checklist.

This template and the accompanying Description of Lawful Raffles supplement the Guidance Note in this subfolder to provide practical guidance for anyone considering organising a raffle for the benefit of a charity or other good cause.
