Government proposes raising society lottery limit to £100m 

By July 3, 2018Consultations

Deadline 7th September

The consultation will recommend raising the maximum amount society lotteries can raise for good causes from £10 million to £100 million per year

  • Consultation will recommend raising maximum draw prize
  • Large society lotteries sales limits were last raised in 2009

The Government recommends increasing the maximum draw prize from its current limit of £400,000 to £500,000. The consultation will also ask for views on increasing the number of tickets society lotteries can sell to a value of £100 million per year and the amount they can raise per draw to £5 million.

The move would allow charities and community groups to increase fundraising methods through society lotteries, while protecting the National Lottery’s ability to raise money for good causes.
