Can I put back the draw date of my lottery or raffle?




 

If you are registered with your Local Authority as a small society lottery

In the first instance you need to contact the Local Authority you are registered with in case they have specific terms and conditions you must adhere to. If you put back the date of the draw, it will need to take place as soon as practically possible. You must make every attempt to notify those who have purchased tickets in the lottery/raffle of the change to the draw date. The notification may be through a number of channels including email, a telephone/text message, your website, a newsletter and your local newspaper.

 

If you are licensed by the Gambling Commission

You need to conduct the draw as soon as practically possible and make every attempt to notify those who have purchased tickets in the lottery/raffle. The notification may be through a number of channels including email, a telephone/text message, your website, a newsletter and your local newspaper. You must also inform the Commission of the new draw date in writing (by post or email at info@gamblingcommission.gov.uk|) as soon as possible.
