You will require this permit if you intend to fundraise using a standard lottery. A standard lottery is any system in which prizes are distributed by chance, other than a continuing lottery. The most common forms of standard lottery are a raffle or calcutta.
You will not require this permit if the total prize pool is less than $200 and your event is:
- a guessing competition or any other competition in which success does not depend to a substantial degree on the exercise of skill
- a number game based on sporting achievements of a public nature
- a raffle, chocolate wheel, art union or other scheme or device for the disposition of property.
You may use a lottery to raise money if you are a charitable group, community-based organisation or sporting body.
Please note that conducting a standard 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 also have to advise the Agency on what the use of funds will be and confirm that they will not be used for private gain or commercial undertaking.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
