EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations prescribe for the purposes of paragraphs 3 and 4 of Schedule 11 to the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act) the maximum sums that promoters may deduct from the proceeds of an incidental non-commercial lottery.

For the purposes of the Act, a lottery is an incidental non-commercial lottery if it is incidental to a non-commercial event and the conditions in Part 1 of Schedule 11 to the Act are satisfied. An event is non-commercial if no sum raised by the organisers of the event (whether by way of fees for entrance or for participation, by way of sponsorship, by way of commission from traders or otherwise) is appropriated for the purposes of private gain (see paragraphs 1 and 2 of Schedule 11 to the Act).

Regulation 2(2) prescribes the maximum sum that may be deducted by the promoters in respect of prizes awarded in the lottery.

Regulation 2(3) prescribes the maximum sum that may be deducted by the promoters in respect of costs incurred in organising the lottery.
