SMALL GAMES OF CHANCE INFORMATION FOR CLUB LICENSEES AND ELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS

Eligible organizations and club licensees are encouraged to review the updated Small Games of Chance Overview for information about the small games of chance law following enactment of Acts 90 and 92 of 2013.

Each club with proceeds of $20,000 or more is required to file an annual report by Feb. 1, for the preceding calendar year.
