IMPORTANT NOTICE: A Declared State of Disaster is currently in place across Victoria. For more information, see: COVID-19 information for licensees
Raffles can only be conducted to raise funds for organisations that have been declared as community or charitable organisations by us and may require a minor gaming permit. You can hold a raffle without a minor gaming permit if the prize value is $5000 or less. If you’re conducting a raffle to raise funds on behalf of a charity (i.e. CFA or Cancer Council), you need their written permission before proceeding.
The information on this page relates to both commercial and community and charitable gaming.
It is a condition of licence holders in the gambling industry to have a Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct (Code of Conduct).
This page contains links to information on varying the rules and changes to raffles.
The Compliance Division is responsible for promoting, investigating, auditing and enforcing compliance with Victoria's gambling and liquor laws.
On this page you will find links to information about your obligations relating to raffles.
The VCGLR has released a short audio file answering common questions on the rules and regulations relating to running raffles in Victoria.
A recent determination by the VCGLR has clarified that debit cards are not permitted to be offered as prizes in raffles.
It is important for licensees/permittees to understand their obligations when it comes to people under 18 and recreational minor gaming activities such as raffles.
