The Department for Culture, Media and Sport does not collect "indicator" data from local authorities on free swimming or licensing and neither source is used for the national indicators set. Local
authorities that have signed up to the free swimming initiative are responsible for submitting quarterly basic throughput data on the number of free swims that have taken place in their area each month.
For alcohol, entertainment and late night refreshment licensing the main purpose of this collection is to collect basic statistics about the operation of licensing. This provides a national picture and helps licensing authorities benchmark their position.

These include the Dream Number draw, certain Scratchcards and online instant win games. Proceeds to the OLDF are not available on a game-by-game basis.
