Summary

This consultation is seeking views on prohibiting third party betting on the outcome of non-UK EuroMillions draws.

Consultation description

Section 95 of the Gambling Act sets out a clear prohibition on offering bets on National Lottery draws, yet some operators currently offer bets on EuroMillions draws outside the UK. Such products are clearly at odds with the intention and spirit of the Act.

In order to preserve the clear boundary between The National Lottery and gambling that s.95 of the Gambling Act seeks to achieve, and prevent a potential negative impact on National Lottery good cause returns, we propose introducing a licence condition to prohibit operators from offering bets on EuroMillions draws outside the UK.

Further detail on the implementation and impact of the proposal is set out in the consultation document and impact assessment above. Our preferred method of capturing your responses to our consultation questions is via the dedicated online survey to share your views with us.
