star this property answer text <p>Licensing of society lotteries is the responsibility of the Gambling Commission. Their most recent figures from March 2017 show there are 319 lotteries that hold two licences. One licence is required to sell by remote channels (such as online or over the telephone) and a separate licence is required to sell by non-remote channels (in person).</p><p> </p><p>There are three charities that hold multiple licences. These are Macmillan, Royal British Legion and Age UK.</p><p> </p><p>Some societies also come together under a common umbrella brand, managed by licensed External Lottery Managers. The societies that make up an umbrella brand are legally separate to each other and will each hold the relevant licence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Society lotteries are an important fundraising tool, raising hundreds of millions of pounds every year for many good causes.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to ensuring both society lotteries and the National Lottery are able to thrive. The Department launched a consultation in June 2018 considering proposals to amend society lottery sales and prize limits. This aims to allow society lotteries to grow while protecting the National Lottery. The consultation closed on 7 September and my officials are now carefully considering responses. We hope to respond to the consultation in the first half of next year.</p> more like this
