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.
