Do I need a licence if we are having a Lottery, Raffle, Tombola etc with Alcohol as a Prize?

Lotteries, raffles and tombolas with alcohol as a prize are exempt from licensing provided the following conditions are met:

  • The lottery is promoted as part of a bazaar, sale of work, fete, dinner, dance, sporting or athletic event or other entertainment of a similar character
  • None of the financial proceeds (after the deduction of relevant expenses) are used for private gain
  • None of the prizes are money prizes
  • Tickets are sold or issued and the result of the draw is announced at the time of (and in the same place) as the entertainment
  • The lottery is not the main reason to attend the event
  • The alcohol is in a sealed container
