THE OHIO ATTORNEY GENERAL’S CHARITABLE LAW SECTION NOW PROVIDES ASSISTANCE WITH BINGO APPLICATIONS AND CONDUCTS BINGO SITE INSPECTIONS
On July 1, the Ohio Attorney General’s Charitable Law Section reorganized its bingo operations to offer a more streamlined approach that will reduce confusion for the bingo community. For many years, the Section contracted with the Ohio Lottery to handle bingo applications and site visits. As of July 1, those operations moved back to the Charitable Law Section under a “one-stop-shopping” approach for all of your bingo questions and concerns. Please direct all questions to the Charitable Law Section at 800-282-0515.
The 2014 Charitable Bingo Application is NOW available and MUST be submitted online (paper applications are no longer accepted). In order to continue to conduct bingo and instant pull tabs after December 31, 2013, the application and ALL required supporting documents MUST be submitted by December 31,2013.
