Old business

Research items from February Meeting (SOS office)

Separate deposits for proceeds yes on the progressive/

Follow up on the question about playing for someone else during a emergency.  The concern is that the person playing for you could say that they are not playing for you and would be awarded the prize if they won.  6.4.1 Limits a player to one electronic device (36 faces).  It was brought up that the problem is normally when a player only has paper.  Carla said she would revisit the statue.  It was stated that volunteers cannot play a person’s cards.

Dan Gincig asked if an electronic machine goes down, if the volunteer can help them catch up while you bring the customer a new device.  Greg Lestikow said he would look into.

Open Forum

Nancy from Bingodocs asked about the LE32 and reporting of progressive raffles and the dollars for the consolation prize. 

It was asked about sealed cards – that they are kept in a locked container.  Do they always need to be kept in the same order?

Kevin asked if you can run 2 progressive raffles.  The answer was no.

On progressive raffles is it ok to have 2 separate deposits due to cash / credit cards.  Larry stated as long as the state sees a total deposit.

Doug – IE: progressive raffle.  Had to suspend due to rule that you must be present to win. 

Greg Lestikow asked people to make comments during the rule making meeting.

Bob -  Lakewood American Legion stated that now the only time they sell tickets is between 5-6 on Fridays due to the rule that you must be present to win.  Has affected income.  People did not understand that they must be present to win.
