It is important to note that the Northern Territory does not have legislation that governs charitable fundraising. However, Licensing NT is responsible for regulating any raffles or gaming activities.
Raffle and gaming activities
Raffle and gaming activities are administered under the Gaming Control Act 1993 (NT) and the Community Gaming Regulations. Rules and guidelines also apply under the NT Code of Practice for Responsible Gambling.
To conduct lotteries and gaming activities as fundraising activities, you must register as an approved association.
