Charitable Lottery Regulations in Saskatchewan

September 20, 2020

Saskatchewan has its own regulations for charitable lotteries. At Simplyk, we strive to make your work simpler. We’ve broken down some of the regulations of online gaming in your province, so that you can easily set up a successful raffle for your organization. Keep in mind that if you are looking to raise money through a prize draw, raffle, 50/50 or other game, you will need to follow the regulations imposed by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) and obtain a license.

Online sales, distribution and draw for charitable gaming

To take payment online, distribute tickets electronically or use an electronic number generator to draw winners, your charity must be approved by the SLGA to use an Electronic Raffle System. You may also need to use a gaming operator certified by the SLGA.

Online platforms not certified by the SLGA can be used to:

  • advertise the raffle or draw
  • accept orders for tickets that will then be paid for and delivered offline

If you want to use an external online platform like Simplyk’s ticketing, we suggest you make the request during your application for the license.

Do you want more specifics on the rules for online gaming? You can find them in section 9 of the SLGA Raffle Terms and Conditions.

Unsure about how the regulations apply to your use of online methods? Include how you plan to sell and distribute your tickets when applying for your gaming license so that you ensure you get the proper approval.
