Covering yourself under The Gambling Act 2005
The majority of jumblebee clients will fit under the Small Society Lottery title. This is defined as a lottery whereby the proceeds are less than £20,000 per lottery or £250,000 per calendar year. If you’re running a huge event you may find you’re in the Large Society Lottery – these are whereby proceeds exceed £20,000 per lottery or £250,000 per calendar year.
If you’re registering as a Small Society Lottery application will be made through your local authority/council. Simple google register under The Gambling Act 2005 and then the name of your local authority – i.e. ‘Register under The Gambling Act 2005 Winchester”. That will take you to this short application. Each authority varies but the cost of application tends to be between £20 and £40.
Large Society Lotteries will need to apply through The Gambling Commission – fees vary. More information and application here.
