The Role Of An External Lottery Manager

External Lottery Managers (ELM) help you set-up a lottery, they do all the hard work and make sure your lottery is fair, compliant with rules and regulations, and professional. The ELM is completely regulated by the Gambling Commission, it keeps all player information safe, secure, and GDPR compliant. It does the actual lottery draw, which is transparent, fair, fully-licensed and approved. The ELM even pays out 100% of the prizes!

What Does An External Lottery Manager Do?

An External Lottery Manager (“ELM”) is a company that has years of industry knowledge and expertise to help your lottery succeed. Your ELM will handle things such as:

  • Handling entry payments
  • Managing the draw

Many ELM’s will already have the necessary software and draw methods to get your lottery started. This not only saves your society money on setting up and running your lottery but precious time as well. The majority of External Lottery Managers will handle the prizes for you, which helps save your society huge amounts of money per draw. Your ELM will handle almost every aspect of your lottery, all you have to do is make sure to promote the lottery and encourage your supporters to join. Remember, the more players that join, the more funds for your society!
