Raffles and Games of Chance

Operating raffles and other games of chance where a fee is required to enter the raffle is strictly forbidden by the State of Rhode Island unless licensed by the Division of the State Police. While educational organizations are eligible to obtain a license for such events, it is required that all proceeds of charges for admission or participation in such games, after expenses, must be applied exclusively for charitable or educational purposes. For further information please go review State law on the RI State Police website.
