Gaming Permits

The application for a Local Permit (PDF) to conduct raffles, bingo, or sports pools within the City of Minot should be fully completed and furnished to the City Clerk's Office (City Hall--2nd Floor), 515 2nd Avenue South West. A $25.00 non-refundable application fee should be included with the application.

The application can also be used for a Restricted Event Permit to conduct raffles, bingo, sports pools, poker, 21, or paddle wheels within the City of Minot; however, the Restricted Event Permit restricts the nonprofit organization to one event per year, and the nonprofit organization must file an information report with the City and the Office of the Attorney General, and must disburse net income to eligible uses. Refer to the back side of the Report on a Restricted Event Permit form for a general list of eligible uses.

When a request for a Local Permit or a Restricted Event Permit is received by the City Clerk's Office, the application form is reviewed for accuracy and, if all required information is provided, a permit is mailed to the applicant within 5 working days. The permit will include a "permit number" that is required to be included on previously printed tickets for raffles. A complete listing of requirements for previously printed tickets is available on page 2 of the application form.
