(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends section 99(3)(a) of the Gambling Act 2005 (“the Act”).

Section 99 of the Act (Mandatory conditions of lottery operating licence) contains certain requirements which the Gambling Commission must achieve by attaching conditions to lottery operating licences issued to non-commercial societies or local authorities. The requirements include monetary or percentage limits in relation to proceeds and prizes in lotteries run by such societies or authorities.

Section 99(3)(a) imposes a requirement that the proceeds of any lottery promoted in reliance on a lottery operating licence issued to a non-commercial society or local authority may not exceed £2,000,000.

Article 2 of this Order amends section 99(3)(a) by substituting £2,000,000 with £4,000,000.
