In order to ensure that lottery licensing is administered fairly and consistently, lottery licensing decisions must be guided by the following fundamental principles:
- Consider the needs of the community as a whole. All eligible organizations must have fair access to gaming opportunities.
- Consider both the viability of a proposed lottery scheme and the applicant’s ability to execute the scheme.
- Lottery proceeds must only be used for the direct delivery of eligible charitable programs and services, as stated on the licence application and approved by the licensing authority.
