Keep Your Raffle Legal and Learn About Australian Raffle Law

Your organisation needs to build up a bit of a nest egg, and you know the perfect way to do it: hold a raffle! Prize draws are a wonderful way to increase your exposure in the community, generate excitement and good will, and divert some extra cash into your budget. Printing your own raffle tickets online helps you realize your dream, and selling raffle tickets allows you to make friends, gauge local interest, and create new relationships for your group.

Did you know that the laws pertaining to printing and selling raffle tickets vary from state to state? The last thing you need is a legal hassle interrupting your success. Why not double check to ensure that you’re on the right side of the law.

This informative government website compiles information from all the state and territory governments into one handy document, so you can quickly check on the basic rules of your community. It also conveniently provides websites, email addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, and addresses, so you can instantly contact the appropriate office and find the answer to any questions you may have. The types of activities that are regulated and the permits and approvals required are clearly spelled out here.

These laws are for charities and organisations. It’s important to remember that running a private raffle for personal gain is not looked upon kindly by the law. Whenever you wish to sell raffle tickets, it’s important to follow all local laws. Begin by contacting the appropriate department of your state government and avoid any legal hassles!
