You will require this permit if you intend to fundraise using a continuing lottery. A continuing lottery is when tickets are bought and then opened to possibly reveal a prize, also known as break open bingo tickets. Tickets may be sold by hand or vending machine for either cash prizes or goods.
A permit may be issued for a continuing lottery, in support of religious or charitable purposes or the promotion or advancement of social welfare including sports or games and cultural or public recreational activities.
Please note that conducting a continuing lottery for private gain or as a commercial undertaking is prohibited. If you intend to donate money raised to a charity or other community organisation, that charity or community organisation will have to advise the Agency on what the use of funds will be.
Your permit will specify the number of tickets which may be offered for sale, the price of tickets, and the premises or locations where tickets may be sold.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
