Society lotteries are subject to limits on how much they can sell per draw and annually, as well as on the maximum prize they can offer.

In March 2020, we legislated to increase the per draw sales limit for large society lotteries from £4 million to £5 million, to increase the maximum prize limit from £400,000 to £500,000, and to raise the annual sales limit from £10 million to £50 million.

We are currently reviewing the impact of these changes.
