General Municipal (GMU) CHAPTER 24, ARTICLE 9-A
§ 195-c. 1. Persons operating games; equipment; expenses;
compensation. No person shall operate any game of chance under any
license issued under this article except a bona fide member of the
authorized organization to which the license is issued, or a bona fide
member of an organization or association which is an auxiliary to the
licensee or a bona fide member of an organization or association of
which such licensee is an auxiliary or a bona fide member of an
organization or association which is affiliated with the licensee by
being, with it, auxiliary to another organization or association.
Nothing herein shall be construed to limit the number of games of chance
licensees for whom such persons may operate games of chance nor to
prevent non-members from assisting the licensee in any activity other
than managing or operating games. No game of chance shall be conducted
with any equipment except such as shall be owned or leased by the
authorized organization so licensed or used without payment of any
compensation therefor by the licensee. However, in no event shall bell
jar tickets be transferred from one authorized organization to another,
with or without payment of any compensation thereof. The head or heads
of the authorized organization shall upon request certify, under oath,
that the persons operating any game of chance are bona fide members of
such authorized organization, auxiliary or affiliated organization. Upon
request by an officer or the department any such person involved in such
games of chance shall certify that he or she has no criminal record. No
items of expense shall be incurred or paid in connection with the
conducting of any game of chance pursuant to any license issued under
this article except those that are reasonable and are necessarily
expended for games of chance supplies and equipment, prizes, security
personnel, stated rental if any, bookkeeping or accounting services
according to a schedule of compensation prescribed by the board,
janitorial services and utility supplies if any, and license fees, and
the cost of bus transportation, if authorized by such clerk or
department. No commission, salary, compensation, reward or recompense
shall be paid or given to any person for the sale or assisting with the
sale of raffle tickets.

2. For the purpose of the sale of tickets for the game of raffle, the
term "operate" shall not include the sale of such tickets by persons of
lineal or collateral consanguinity to members of an authorized
organization licensed to conduct a raffle.
