SI 2020/307 – The Gambling Act 2005 (Variation of Monetary Limits) Order 2020
Released 19 March 2020
SI 2020/307 amends GA 2005, s. 99 to increase monetary limits on lottery proceeds under lottery operating licences from 7 April 2020.
The Gambling Act 2005 (Variation of Monetary Limits) Order 2020 amends the Gambling Act 2005, s. 99(3), which specifies certain requirements to which the Gambling Commission must give effect by attaching conditions to a lottery operating licence issued to a non-commercial society or a local authority. The requirements in GA 2005, s. 99(3) impose monetary limits on the proceeds of any lottery promoted in reliance on a lottery operating licence, and also on the aggregate proceeds of lotteries promoted wholly or partly in a calendar year in reliance on a lottery operating licence. This order increases those monetary limits and makes transitional provisions to ensure that lottery operating licence holders can benefit on a pro rata basis from the increase in the revised limit on the annual aggregate proceeds as soon as the Gambling Commission alters the conditions attached to lottery operating licences to reflect the revised limit. Without this, the revised limit on the annual aggregate proceeds could not apply until the beginning of the next calendar year. The order comes into force on 7 April 2020 (as the twenty-first day after the day on which it was made). The order was made on 17 March 2020.
