Link to the UK Gambling commissions website.
In the very first line, UK Gambling Commission says
Lotteries (also known as raffles, or draws) cannot be run for private or commercial gain.
You are not even allowed to profit from them. You are only allowed to run society lotteries. UK Gambling Commission says
Society lotteries (also known as raffles) are promoted for the benefit of a non-commercial society.
And if you are wondering who/what the Gambling Commissions is:
We permit gambling as long as it is crime-free, fair & open and children & other vulnerable people are protected.
So a cursory review of UK laws has revealed that:
- Operating a lottery for profit is not allowed.
- Operating a lottery requires a licence.
- Children and other vulnerable people are protected. Plarium is actively promoting gambling to children.
Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

Pritty much the same the Norwegian laws says about it.
Only exceptions is like "on site" events, like bazars, fairs and the likes, where you buy the ticket directly of the seller on the site.
