‘Lottery’ (or raffle as they are sometimes known) is the broad term used for a game where you pay to enter, where there is at least one prize, and winning is dependent only on chance.
Lotteries allow charities to raise money from the public in a way that appeals to a wide audience. The added incentive of a prize enables charities to engage with those who may otherwise not donate and gain new supporters. The set up and administration of lotteries is regulated by the Gambling Commission.
