ActionAid Lottery social responsibility regulations

Access to gambling by children & young persons

The ActionAid Lottery will capture the age of supporters that sign up to the lottery and will not process the details of any players under the age of 16. The ActionAid Lottery terms and conditions contain details of the minimum age for players. All ActionAid staff are aware of under-age rules and will consult with the promoter if they feel that these rules are being flouted.

If the ActionAid Lottery are uncertain about the age of a supporter and feel that they may be under 16 years of age they will not process details until their age has been verified. Prospective supporters who are believed to be under-age will be asked to provide either a copy of a photo driving licence OR a passport.

If anyone who is suspected to be under the age of 16 has played the ActionAid Lottery, their account will be frozen until such a time as their age is verified and any winnings will also be suspended.
