unstar this property answer text <p>The Gambling Commission’s recent findings highlight one of the key differences between the National Lottery and society lotteries with the National Lottery characterised by high life-changing prizes and society lotteries characterised by smaller prizes and linked to a dedicated charity or good cause such as a local hospice or air ambulance. We are currently consulting on potential changes to society lottery sales and prize limits and will consider the Gambling Commission’s findings as part of our response. In addition, we are working with National Lottery good cause distributors and Camelot to increase players’ understanding of the good causes that benefit from the National Lottery.</p> more like this
