Who can apply?

Only charitable or religious organizations are eligible to apply for gaming event licences. Funds raised through charitable gaming events must be used for education, religion, health, relieving poverty, or to benefit the community by promoting sports, recreation, culture, or any other area considered appropriate by the LGA.

As of April 1, 2014, the LGA also licenses individuals and groups who are planning a one-time social event at a venue such as a banquet hall, restaurant, bar or community centre, and want to have a raffle such as a 50/50 or players’ choice draw at the event.
