Good morning. Is it considered gambling if you play the lottery once a week? Just want to be sure. Thank you in advance.

If you only have a flutter once a week with money from your allowances it will be fine. Just don't spend a lot on a ticket.

A flutter of a few quid is not likely to be an issue ---- buying £50 worth of entries every week might be !
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
