Description

Charitable gaming; regulations of the Charitable Gaming Board; prohibited acts. Removes provisions specifying the amount of bingo prize money and raffle prize money that an organization qualified to conduct charitable gaming in the Commonwealth may award and instead directs the Charitable Gaming Board (the Board) to promulgate regulations prescribing (i) limits on the amount and types of prizes, jackpots, or merchandise that may be awarded by a qualified organization for any charitable game and (ii) the conditions under which an organization qualified to conduct bingo games may permit the play of electronic versions of instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards approved by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services when bingo is not in play. Under current law, instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards may be played only (a) as a part of regular bingo games or (b) by members or guests of the qualified charitable organization.
