Default Lottery rules

A friend wants to raffle a suite to an upcoming game for charity. He would sell 250 tickets with the winner getting the box. Is this legal if itís not registered?

Yeah you do. Otherwise any joe shmoe can make up a fake raffle while not proving they are able to deliver on the prize.

I think you mean "winner" because it's an Oilers game though?

Australian firefighters charity?

Would a hockey team running a 50/50 or a raffle at a tournament be breaking the law or is it okay to raise money for yourself?

Could your friend get around this by donating the box and then the charity runs an auction?

In this case, if I recall from my days as a hockey parent, the team needs to register the draw with AGLC.

Is it not just a waffle draw that the AGLC recently came out and said was ok?

I love waffle draws. Except when I win, they are often cold by the time I get them.

Source. Please.

I've had countless arguments on waffle draws and I can't imagine any have been deemed legal.

I had to google waffle draw. I got a strange mix of draw a breakfast cartoon tutorials and people arguing out whether their Facebook draw for a snow machine was 100% illegal or just sort of illegal.

I got waffle porn. And by that I mean a couple of naked Belgian chicks covered in whipped cream and fruit.

who would he be selling tickets to?
If someone I didn't know tried to sell me a ticket for a raffle or "waffle" that wasn't licensed, I would assume that the money was going right into his or her pocket.

Crazy, does this include within a company? For example we do 50/50 and gift basket draws often in our branch, seems like we may need a license?

edit: No. Fundraising to pay for social events or activities is not eligible for a gaming licence.

edit edit: So if I read that correctly we are just not eligible which means we technically can't even have them at all?

I know anything involving alcohol needs aglc approval.

My wife just did some liquor basket draws for dog fostering assoc. and it definitely needed aglc license.

We used to have a wine survivor thing at work during united way campaign, that should have had aglc license, but didn't.

That is correct.
And all it takes is one poor loser to not only ruin it for everyone, but to cost the company a fair chunk of money in fines. I've seen it happen.
