guildford community lottery is taking a short break

We're taking a short break

28 April 2023

We’ll Be Back Soon!


You may have noticed that Guildford Community Lottery is not open for ticket sales, and draws are not taking place at the moment, but don’t worry we’ll be back very soon.


Guildford Borough Council is the operator of this lottery. The council has been advised by the Gambling Commission that they must register a new Gambling Licence holder for the lottery. For this reason, Guildford Community Lottery will pause for a short period of time to allow a second licence holder to be registered. After this time Guildford Community Lottery will resume normal operations.


During this temporary pause, it will not be possible to purchase lottery tickets, and lottery draws will not take place. Don’t worry if you’ve already purchased tickets, your current ticket payments will automatically be carried over once the Lottery has resumed. You won’t be charged for any tickets during the period of the pause. All good causes will continue to receive payments from tickets that were sold for previous draws, and payments for future draws will resume automatically when we’re back up and running.


We thank everyone for their continued support of Guildford Community Lottery and for all of your generous support for our worthy local causes. We look forward to resuming the lottery very shortly.
