And Jersey charities and community projects will soon be eligible for the first time to receive grants from the National Lottery.
The approval of the bill by the Lords brings the day closer that National Lottery tickets will be on sale in the Island.
The National Lottery Bill was supported unanimously by Peers last night.
It gave The Big Lottery Fund – which hands out grants – a legal status and also means it can soon give cash to projects in both the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
Jersey’s Economic Development Minister Philip Ozouf said the legislative change is part of a framework that will lead to Islanders being able to play the lottery and have the chance to win multi-million pound top prizes.
