  1. 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.
