Non-commercial (small society) lottery registration

Societies, clubs and charities often raise funds by selling lottery tickets to the general public. If you sell tickets in advance of the draw (for example, in the days prior to the event) then you will need to have a non-commercial (small society) lottery registration. You do not need a registration where tickets are sold only at the event to attendees (for example, a tombola). More information on the types of lotteries, when you require a licence and how to run your lottery lawfully can be found on the gambling commission website (opens in a new tab).

To register as a non-commercial (small society) lottery in the Melton Borough area, please click the button below, complete the form and submit it to us. We will then process the application and issue a registration certificate for a year.
