GAMBLING COMMISSION


[ Order 682 -- Filed January 11, 2013, 3:03 p.m. , effective February 11, 2013 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: Currently, raffle tickets must be sold with consecutive numbering. A petition for rule change from the public was approved to allow charitable and nonprofit organizations to sell raffle tickets that are not consecutively numbered for raffles that take place during the same event at the same location. Raffle ticket numbers will need to be recorded on a ticket distribution log to document the gaps in the numbers. The intent of this change is to allow organizations to use up left over theatre style tickets from previous raffles rather than throw them away. This may result in gaps in ticket numbering.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: See above.
