Lottery submissions guidance

Guidance for information collected in the Lottery Submissions service.

Certification statement

Please note that each lottery submission needs to be confirmed as accurate before it is submitted. This confirmation must be made by either:

  • the holder of a personal licence issued under part 6 of the Act
  • a qualified person as defined in the Gambling Act 2005 (Definition of small-scale operator) Regulations 2006
  • the designated person named on tickets in the lottery as having responsibility within the society for promotion of the lottery.

Where an External Lottery Manager (ELM) makes the submission on behalf of a society one of the above-named persons at the society must confirm with the ELM that the details on the submission are correct before it is made.

We expect the signatory to make reasonable enquiries to ensure that the lottery submission is accurate and complete. Also, that the organisation’s processes and procedures to provide the data in the lottery submission are robust and assured. The extent of reasonable enquiries will differ depending on the size of business.
