Lottery submissions guidance
Late or inaccurate lottery submissions
Most lottery operators make lottery submissions on time and accurately. Reviewing submissions which are late or have errors, costs time and money and makes us less efficient.
If a lottery operator misrepresents or fails to reveal information that it is asked to provide, unless it has a reasonable excuse, it will have committed an offence under section 342 of the Gambling Act 2005 (opens in new tab). We may prosecute lottery operators which provide us with information which is false or deliberately misleading.
If a lottery submission contains errors and needs to be amended after it has been made, lottery operators must contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your Gambling Commission licensed name and account number in the email header.
If a lottery operator submits lottery submissions late, we may contact the operator. In the case of repeated late submissions, we will refer the matter to our Enforcement team.Previous section
