What was this engagement about?

Proposed changes to the Lotteries and Games of Chance Regulation will allow charitable organizations to run progressive raffles such as Chase the Ace for fundraising activities. We're asking for input on the proposed changes to the Regulation.

How will my input make a difference?

Current regulations do not include progressive raffles, which have become an increasingly important and popular fundraising choice for charitable organizations.

Your input will help ensure that progressive raffles are managed securely and that anyone paying to play these games is protected and treated fairly.
