How to apply for lotteries, raffles or tombola licences

Fees and how to apply


The initial application fee is £40. 

You can download the application form for the registration of a non-commercial society (to hold lotteries) or contact Licensing for a form to be sent to you.

Every year after your licence is issued an annual fee is payable of £20. An invoice for this will be sent out to the nominated contact person for your society and you will not have to fill in another application form. However, it is essential that you notify us of any change of details so that we send the invoice to the correct person.

Exempt lotteries

Other types of lotteries which fall into an exempt category are incidental non-commercial lotteries, a private society lottery, and a work lottery or a resident's lottery.

For more information about lotteries, visit the Gambling Commission website.
