UK Government rejects ‘distribution updates’ on National Lottery sales

first_imgShare Submit Related Articles Share StumbleUpon Ministers expected to raise National Lottery age limit August 17, 2020 The UK Government has outlined that it has rejected proposals to give weekly updates on ticket sales to firms that share out proceeds to good causes.The rejection comes after a consultation period, following proposals to reform how money is distributed charity from society lotteries. Regarding the consultation period, the government previously detailed that: “Society lotteries play a vital part of the giving landscape by enabling charities and other societies, such as sports clubs, to run lotteries for good causes. The amount a society can raise is subject to limits of £4m sales per draw, £10m sales per year and a maximum prize of £400,000.“Our preferred options would allow a tenfold increase in the amount that a large society lottery can raise per year, bringing the annual limit to £100m. The per draw sales limit would rise to £5m and the maximum prize to £500,000.”However, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport detailed: “The department does not receive this level of granular data from the Gambling Commission and questions the added value it would bring.“Sales vary week by week due to a diverse range of factors, in particular, whether there have been any rollover jackpots, limiting the robustness of any conclusions regarding trends that could be drawn on a week by week basis.”In its response, the DCMS added: “The department confidently expects that the commission will take account of experiences of the third licence when designing the next to deliver a strong National Lottery beyond 2023.” UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Camelot aims for ‘Big September’ supporting a high street recovery August 26, 2020last_img read more
