Charitable gaming. Provides that electronic gaming, defined in the bill as charitable gaming conducted primarily by use of an electronic device, is restricted to social organizations and is limited to such organizations' social quarters. The bill provides that all receipts attributable to electronic gaming shall be reported to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and shall be subject to application, audit, and administration fees. The bill eliminates exceptions in current law for veterans and fraternal organizations. Without the exceptions, such organizations shall be subject to two prohibitions that, under current law, apply to all other organizations: (i) they are prohibited from offering bingo, instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards outside of their home locality and (ii) they are prohibited from offering such games at a Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control-licensed location unless they hold the license.
