Following a consultation from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, amendments have been made to the legislation of raising the age of which Lottery products can be sold.

From October 1, the age at which National Lottery products can be bought and sold will be raised to 18, to protect young people from possible gambling risks, and many retailers are already adopting this change.

However, today’s announcement noted that people aged 18 or over can now approve the transaction being handed by a 16- or 17-year-old.

The NFRN welcomes this regulation revision as limiting the sale of these products to over 18’s would have caused significant problems for retailers. Not only is the National Lottery a key revenue stream, but the legislation would affect young staff members who administer the products.
