GAMBLING COMMISSION ISSUES WARNING OVER THE PROMOTION OF LOTTERY VENDING MACHINES

The Gambling Commission has today issued a warning that it is misleading and potentially an offence to market lottery ticket vending machines to premises owners on the basis that they can site them for commercial gain.  They have also reiterated that  lotteries are the preserve of charities and other good causes, and cannot be promoted for private or commercial gain.  As such premises owners can only receive a fee for siting the machines out of the expenses of the lottery from the authorised promoter.

Any arrangement to site a lottery ticket vending machine must be between the promoter of the lottery who should be licensed by the Commission or registered with a local authority and the  owner/manager of the Premises. Furthermore,  control of the management and the arrangements for the lottery must remain with the promoter.

Further information guidance on lottery ticket vending machines can be found on the Gambling Commission website by following the link  here which explains how these machines can be used.
