Refer <br />to the backside of the "Report on a Charity Local Permit" form for a general list of eligible uses. <br /> <br />For a charity local permit, one method to ensure that the total of all cash prizes and retail value of all merchandise prizes do not exceed <br />$12,000 is to charge each player a standard amount at the start of the event for a certain number or value of chips. If a player loses all of the <br />player's chips, the player may re-buy chips. The player would play games and, at the end of the event, the organization would auction <br />merchandise prizes to the players. The player who bid the highest number or value of chips for a prize would win that prize. For those <br />players who have chips but did not successfully bid on a prize, the organization may redeem the chips for a predetermined cash value per <br />chip. For this method, the value of players' chips redeemed for cash is not a prize. <br /> <br />INFORMATION REQUIRED TO BE PREPRINTED ON A STANDARD RAFFLE TICKET: <br /> <br />1.
