Under the Federal Criminal Code, most non-profit organizations are legally allowed to conduct online raffles to raise funds. The government regulators overseeing gaming in each jurisdiction are the final licensing authority for any non-profit organization that applies. Please contact your local regulator for information on whether or not your non-profit organization is allowed to conduct an online raffle.
Currently, “social” event raffles are NOT eligible for online raffles. It is important to note that raffles are governed by certain terms and conditions and anyone looking to conduct a raffle must apply for a license through the proper governing authorities.
