Conditions for granting a lottery licence
Non-money lotteries can only be organized to collect money for charity or another non-profit purpose. The lottery must not be obviously inappropriate in respect of the public interest, nor should the licensing authority have good grounds to believe the applicant is going to operate against the rules and regulations issued on lotteries.
The combined total of prizes in non-money lotteries must be at least 35% of the total price of the lottery tickets, and the smallest prize must be worth at least as much as the price of a single ticket. If the applicant has not paid the lottery tax within the prescribed period or has not rendered the proper accounts, a new licence will not be granted until the tax arrears are paid and the accounts deposited with the authorities.
