For further information on the issuance of a license for Bingo or Games of Chance Licenses, please refer to the New York State Racing and Wagering Board.
Bingo & Games of Chance Licenses
The New York State Racing and Wagering Board determines the rules for the issuance of Bingo and Games of Chance, which include Raffle, Bell Jar and Casino Night Licenses.
Charitable organizations, which intend to raise money by holding Bingo Games, Games of Chance and in some cases, Raffles, must apply for an identification number issued through the Board. If the organization does not have an identification number or if an assigned identification number has not been used for a one-year period, the organization must contact the NYS Racing and Wagering Board.
