Following the Government’s consulation on lotteries earlier in the year, the Gambling Commission has published guidance seeking to address the confusion that, research would suggest, arises in the minds of the general public when faced with a “lottery-style” game or a betting product where punters wager on the outcome of actual lotteries.

The guidance largely deals with the way such games are presented and marketed, but there is also a clear threat from the Commission that, if they dont see a noticeable improvement, then they will address the issue of confusion through the imposition of licensing conditions.
