Government to Squeeze Lottery and Raffles promoters


Belize City: Thursday, 3rd January 2019

The Lotteries Control Committee announced last Friday 28th of December that they would no longer be tolerating the widespread undocumented gambling of lotteries and raffles without the pertinent permit. They reminded Belizeans that according to the Lotteries Control Act, chapter 151 of the Laws of Belize, no person shall promote or conduct any lottery or raffle (any scheme for distribution of prizes by lot or chance), unless he obtains a licence or a letter of authorization for such a raffle in accordance with the Lotteries Control Act.

Every person, who intends to promote or conduct any lottery or raffle, will now have to apply in writing to the lotteries’ committee addressing all applications to the secretary of the lotteries’ committee. All raffles sanctioned by the lotteries’ committee are given a reference number, and that number needs to be reproduced on all tickets and when being advertised.

Any violation to the Lotteries Control Act, and its regulation is an offence. Violators shall be liable on summary conviction in a court of law.

  2. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress

  4. Everything said made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I mean,

    what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean Government to Squeeze Lottery and Raffles promoters – Belize Times is a little
    boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to
    grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or
    two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
