2. What are the limits placed on small society lotteries?

The limits placed on a small society lottery are:

A small society lottery must apply at least 20 per cent of the lottery proceeds to the purposes of the society.
The current limits mean that no single prize may be worth more than £25,000 (whether money or moneys worth or a mixture of both).

Rollovers between lotteries are only permitted where every lottery affected is also a small society lottery promoted by the same society, and the maximum single prize is £25,000 
Every ticket in the lottery must cost the same and the ticket fee must be paid to the society, the society must take payment before entry into the draw is allowed.

Total value of tickets sold in a single lottery must not be more than £20,000
