National and state lotteries are increasingly used by governments as a means of funding good causes without raising taxes. These could be cultural, artistic or sports activities
The purchasing of lottery tickets and related games, like scratchcards, are usually age restricted, although the specific age can be dependent on local laws and sometimes the potential value of prizes.
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help lottery services?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We also provide the training that you need for your staff and all of the industry standard signage and materials for a professional approach. We can help with age verification policies and if you have an online store, we can test this against PAS 1296:2018.
Why do I have to get this done?
Local laws place obligations on lottery providers to take steps to prevent the underage sale of tickets or scratchcards. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of your business. You can find out more about the local laws that apply here.
