Applying for a Raffle Licence

What is a Raffle?

A raffle is a lottery scheme where ticket purchasers pay for a chance to win a prize. Some examples include cash, merchandise, travel, or a percentage draw (such as a 50/50).

Before you start

A group AGLC has found eligible for raffles with a total ticket value $20,000 and less must follow:

Total Ticket Value

To calculate the total ticket value, multiply the price(s) of the ticket(s) by the number of tickets for sale. For example, 10,000 tickets at $2 each equals a total ticket value of $20,000.

A group may choose to sell discount tickets in multiples at a lower price per ticket than a regular ticket. For example, one ticket for sale at $5 and discount tickets for sale at three for $10.

Add regular tickets and discount tickets to calculate total ticket value:

  • 500 regular tickets x $3 per ticket = $1,500
  • 3,000 discounted tickets at two for $5 = $7,500

The total ticket value in this example is $9,000.

A group must not exceed the total ticket value of the licence.

Planning for the Licence

Before you get a licence online through an AGLC web account or from a registry agent, you need to know:

  • the format of the raffle: cash or merchandise; 50/50; progressive ( see FAQ for additional detail )
  • the number of tickets for sale
  • the price per ticket
