Liquor License Renewal and Small Games of Chance
Serving Liquor in Pennsylvania
Small Games of Chance
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania enacted the Local Option Small Games of Chance (LOSGC) in 1988. This Act allows qualified nonprofit organizations to conduct small games of chance for the purpose of raising funds for the promotion of public interest purposes. Going and Plank can help certain types of charitable organizations get a LOSGC license. Whether you’re a religious organization, fraternal organization, civic and service organization, or veteran groups, we can help. Our team understands how to keep you in compliance so you can conduct daily drawings, weekly drawings, punchboards, pull-tabs, and raffles, including lotteries. To ensure your small game of chance is legal and in compliance with Pennsylvania and federal law, contact us to talk to an experienced business lawyer at Going and Plank.
The Challenges of Combining LOSGC and Liquor Licenses
Many organizations that hold a LOSGC license also hold a “Club” liquor license. Going and Plank can help organizations with LOSGC licenses comply with Pennsylvania’s sometimes confusing legal restrictions. If you violate these restrictions, you can endanger your ability to retain your license and even your ability to operate your business Licensees must be aware that there are price limits that are set by statute.
Protect your liquor license. If your business, private club, or organization conducts or plans to conduct small games of chance, contact a business lawyer at Going and Plank to make sure you understand the laws and regulations.
