Raising Standards for consumers - Compliance and Enforcement report 2020 to 2021
If members of the public wish to set up and run a lottery they are directed to the published guidance for fundraising and lotteries on the Commission website. The guidance is very clear in that Lotteries in Great Britain can only be promoted for charities and other good causes. They cannot be promoted for private or commercial gain.
If members of the public suspect an illegal lottery is taking place, we would ask that you report it by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org (opens in new email). Providing evidence of the suspect illegal activity in the form of a screenshot showing the offending group or post and any linked Uniform Resource Locator (URL) will assist us in assessing appropriate disruption or enforcement action.Previous section
