TITLE OF BILL:
to amend the general municipal law, in relation to authorizing the
conducting of event games by organizations authorized to conduct games
The purpose of this bill to broaden the definition of authorized event
games to include not only event games that are associated with
conventional bell jar games, with instant winners, but to also
include event games that designated an additional winner determined
by a secondary event.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Amends General Municipal Law subdivisions 3, 3-a, 3-d, 9
and 14 of 186 to broaden the definition of event games associated
with bell jar ticket sales so that an additional winner can be
designated based on a secondary determining event. For example,
these games would be played like any other bell jar game, except that
a certain number of designated tickets of a bell jar ticket run that
correspond to the numbers of a bingo game would be held for an
additional prize based on a secondary event.
Not clearly authorized by current law.
Gaming activities such as bell jar ticket sales helps to support local
charitable organizations and their good works. This bill expands
slightly the types of games that can be played to increase the
satisfaction of charitable organization patrons and to raise money to
support these charitable organizations.
