A raffle is a gambling competition where you stand the chance to win a prize by matching a ticket drawn randomly - not all raffles are age restricted
Your local small charity or school raffle probably doesn't have age restrictions (even if the prizes would be age restricted if sold - like alcohol), but organised commercial raffles may well have age restrictions associated with them. A commercial tombola (a Christmas tradition in parts of Italy) or meat raffles popular in the US and Australia may also be covered by local gambling laws.
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help raffles?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We can provide the industry standard signage and provide specialised training for full time and casual staff.
Why do I have to get this done?
Commercial Raffles can be subject to strict licensing conditions. Local charity and school raffles are not likely to be restricted or controlled. The penalties for failing to comply with licences can be substantial including the forced closure of the premises. You can find out more about the local laws that apply here.
What posters and materials do I need to be compliant?
You may be required to display certain posters or warnings in relation to raffles at the premises.
