Use of Gaming Proceeds

Use of Proceeds Information:

The revenue from bingo, casino, and raffle and pull-ticket sales may be used to pay for prizes and expenses related to operating the charitable gaming event.

The balance of the revenue, or the gaming proceeds, belongs to the charity for the charitable or religious purposes stated in the charity’s gaming licence application.

The charities who hold bingo association events also receive grants from the Alberta Lottery Fund for a portion of the net revenue generated during their bingo events from electronic bingo and Keno; these are provincial gaming activities whose net revenues are placed in the Alberta Lottery Fund.

Licensed charities state in their application how they will use gaming proceeds prior to receiving their licence to ensure that gaming proceeds are only used for AGLC approved purposes which are essential to the delivery of the groups’ charitable or religious programs.

If a charity wishes to change how it wants to use its gaming proceeds, the AGLC will review a written request and update the group’s licence accordingly.

All licensed groups are required to complete financial reporting forms provided to them by the AGLC.

Groups with questions about specific allowable uses are invited to check the Charitable Gaming Policies Handbook.
