I expect that most charities operating society lotteries have been complying with these new requirements for many years - particularly the first of the two reported changes!
Nonetheless, charity trustees should take this opportunity to ensure that their lotteries are being administered in accordance with the Conditions and Codes before the changes come into force next year.
The Gambling Commission might also take the opportunity to review licensees and their compliance with the Conditions and Codes.
Remember, it could be you.
“Our regulatory approach puts consumers right at the heart of everything that we do. This has been built on further in our new three-year strategy, where we say we will consider whether any further changes are necessary to ensure that society lotteries can continue to make important contributions to society, whilst being run in a way which is fair and safe for consumers. “In particular, we have said it is important that information is available for consumers to help them to understand which good causes are being supported and how much of their money goes to the good cause.”
