    Lottery organisers and promoters are reminded that these lotteries should ensure that they comply with the provisions of the Gambling Act 2005 and that in particular children should not be involved in the sale or purchase of small society lottery tickets. The provisions relating to this type of lottery are set out in this attachment.

  10. 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.

  18. Notice of application for provisional statement

    Provisional statements are for those who have an interest in premises, but don’t necessarily own the premises, or are not in a position to say that they intend to operate a business there. It could be that the individual or business applying for a provisional statement, wants to be sure that there isn’t any opposition to a particular proposal, before they spend large sums of money.

    The application and consultation process for a ‘provisional statement’ is the same as for a ‘premises licence’ and under normal circumstances, a premises licence application will eventually follow on from the grant of a provisional statement; if the applicant intends to go ahead with the proposal.

  19. Hackney carriage drivers

    Section 59 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 states that a council, before granting a hackney carriage driver's licence must be satisfied that an applicant is a fit and proper person to hold such a licence and that the applicant has for at least 12 months prior to the date of the application, been authorised to drive a motor car (that is, held a full driver's licence for that period).
