Electronic Raffle Handbook Amendments

Electronic Raffle Opportunities Bulletin

June 29, 2020

This bulletin is to advise all licensed charitable organizations and registered gaming suppliers of IMPORTANT AMENDMENTS to the Electronic Raffle Handbook (ERH).

The following ERH policies are effective June 29, 2020.

AGLC is creating new opportunities for licensed charitable organizations that conduct electronic raffles with a total ticket value (TTV) of $100,000 or more, by accommodating:

  • electronic draws using a random number generator (RNG), which were previously limited to raffles with a TTV of $1 million or more; and
  • online ticket sales as a new sales option for bearer ticket raffles. Electronic bearer ticket sales were previously limited to individuals who attend an entertainment event.

These policy amendments align with the Government of Alberta’s red tape reduction initiative by providing charitable organizations that conduct electronic raffles with more flexibility and reducing the restrictions on the use of RNGs and online ticket sales in Alberta.

AGLC is dedicated to modernizing and improving opportunities for charitable organizations and businesses.

Please familiarize yourself with the amended policies, update your ERH as required, and ensure all affected staff or volunteers are notified of the new requirements.

The amended ERH may be accessed on AGLC’s website at

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Regulatory Services Division at or 1-855-506-1066 extension 5.
