Description

Charitable gaming; operators; licensing requirement; definition of "instant bingo," "pull tabs," or "seal cards." Permits an operator, defined in the bill, to manage, operate, or conduct charitable gaming on behalf of a qualified organization or otherwise assist a qualified organization with the management, operation, or conduct of charitable gaming, provided that such operator obtains a license from the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and complies with all charitable gaming laws and regulations that would otherwise be applicable to such qualified organization related to the management, conduct, or operation of charitable gaming. The bill also amends the definition of "instant bingo," "pull tabs," or "seal cards" to provide that the preprinted or predetermined appearance of concealed letters, numbers, or symbols contained on the individually prepackaged cards must simply be exposed after purchase to determine wins and losses. Current law specifies that the preprinted or predetermined appearance of concealed letters, numbers, or symbols contained on the individually prepackaged cards must be exposed by the player to determine wins and losses.
